William & Harry learned different lessons from parents’! Robert Lacey’s Battle of Brothers: William and Harry – The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult is out this week. In a new interview, Lacey was asked whether the problems between Harry and William started with Meghan’s arrival.
Susanna asked: “The turmoil that is going on between these two brothers is very disruptive. Is it something that started with Meghan marrying Harry and finding out she was very unhappy within the Royal family, or did it begin before that?”
Robert replied: “No, it went way back, and what’s what the book is about. It goes right back to the beginning, it’s chickens coming home to roost from all the trouble of the 80s and 90s. These young boys are the product of that marital turmoil, and they took two opposite lessons from it. William took the lesson of duty, as he went through these difficult times, the prospect that he was going to be King was inspiration and strength for him. So when he fell in love he politely asked his girlfriend to wait nine or ten years before they got married so he could make sure she was up to the job. That’s his priority and they have created a wonderful figurehead for the future. ”
He added: “Harry took the opposite conclusion from the turmoil of his parents’ loveless arranged marriage. He was going to go for love, so we are looking at a clash between these eternal principles of love versus duty.”

It seemed crazy. Humans had only just launched the first satellite- putting a man on the moon, that quickly, seemed impossible. • But now, rather than a moonshot, we need Earthshots for this decade. We must harness that same spirit of human ingenuity and purpose and turn it with laser sharp focus and urgency on the most pressing challenge we have ever faced – repairing our planet.” • Prince William’s talk was given as part of @tedcountdown, the first free and virtual TED Conference devoted entirely to championing and accelerating solutions to the climate crisis. #JoinTheCountdown
