Royal Envy: Prince Harry Once Confessed He Was Jealous Of Prince William And His Perfect Marriage In A Interview

Date September 2, 2019

The two Royal heirs, Prince Harry and Prince William have a salient difference of wealth, status and lifestyle. It makes one wonder if the younger one ever feels small in the mighty shadow of the King-to-be. The British monarchy is advanced enough to ensure there is no competition - but, the insecurities grow under no one's rule.

Harry and William have always been two peas in a pod. They were once close friends, allies, and ultimately brothers. The duo used to always be teasing; so happy in each other's company. Even Kate Middleton seemed to fit into their bond seamlessly.

Many believe that everything changed when Meghan Markle entered the trio. However, the symptoms of discord between the brothers were already visible.

The royal envy

A newly-surfaced interview reported by Express UK suggests that sibling rivalry and a pinch of jealousy has always poisoned Harry and Will's relationship. In 2013, the Duke of Sussex spoke to press just before getting back to London after serving five months in Afghanistan. He said:

Before coming out here I was very jealous of my brother. Back home he gets to go home to his wife and dog, whereas out here we don't. We're stuck playing PlayStation in a tent full of men.

On the other hand, Prince William envied his younger sibling. He was the future of Britain and had no liberty to fight at the frontlines. Prince Harry then sweetly realized his brother's bounded position, saying:

I think there is a bit of jealousy, not just the fact that I get to fly this, but obviously he'd love to be out here.

Sussex vs Cambridge

Both the royal couples have their own cons and pros. Prince William and Catherine met earlier in life while Meghan and Harry later in life.

The Sussex couple is more dynamic and experienced but, their individual independence could be a problem. While the Cambridge couple is tried-&-tested but, Will's responsibilities can be a bummer for the family.

On all ground, the two princes are pretty much equal. They have grown up to be true gentlemen who are bound to lead ahead with compassion and sophistication.
