PRINCE WILLIAM is forced to “sacrifice” time spent with his children due to his duties to the Commonwealth, claimed royal commentator Justin Sylvester.

Prince Harry “doesn’t have a choice” in being a hands-on parent, whereas his brother William has to “sacrifice” time with his children, claimed a royal commentator. Justin Sylvester pointed out Prince William has to ‘put the Commonwealth first”, in contrast to Prince Harry, who is eighth in line to the throne. Speaking on Prince Harry being a “hands-on parent”, Mr Sylvester told E! News: “I don’t think he has a choice. I think Meghan is like ‘yo what’s up, let’s do this, it’s your diaper change’.
“I think for him though, his brother has to sacrifice his kids because he has to put the Commonwealth first.
“I think for Harry, he’s eighth in line so his kid can come first.”
Royal expert Melanie Bromley disagreed: “I’d actually say that William has been such a hands on dad that Harry’s learnt from his brother how to do it.”
Mr Sylvester interjected: “I don’t think he’s looking at his brother for nothing anymore.”

Ms Bromley explained: “Because William and Kate really only had one nanny, even though the family has expanded.
“They are actually very hands on.”
Prince Harry and Meghan relied on the help of the Duchess of Sussex’s mother, Doria Ragland, after the birth of their son Archie.
But after the grandmother returned to her home in Los Angeles, the Duke and Duchess are now believed to have enlisted the help of a professional nanny to help care for their first child.

Speaking to ET, royal commentator Katie Nicholls said: “I’ve heard from very reliable sources that the new nanny who has now been appointed by the Sussexes has had to sign quite an extensive non-disclosure agreement.”
Meghan and Harry are known to be very mindful of their privacy and have kept a tight grip on information about their private lives long before the birth of their son.
While the Duchess was expecting her first child, the couple issued a statement informing the public they would celebrate the birth “privately” and would not adhere to the traditional photo shoot outside of the hospital as Princess Diana and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge did with their children.
Despite claiming the couple has now hired a nanny, Ms Nicholls insisted the Duchess remained a very hands-on parent: “Meghan’s been up in the night nursing, feeding on demand every few hours.

“Apparently, he’s a hungry little baby.”
While it remains unclear whether the couple chose to hire a more traditional nanny to follow in the footsteps of Kate and William, or a Hollywood-style childminder, the new member of the royal household staff may soon join the couple on their visit to Africa later this year.
Meghan and Harry will travel to Angola this Autumn as part of their Africa tour and will work with a charity close to his mother’s heart.
Palace aides are also exploring the possibility their young son Archie travelling with them to the African nation.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will travel with Archie for at least part of the tour to Africa where they are also expected to go to Malawi to help with Prince Harry’s charity, Sentebale.
The Duke is said to want to fulfill some of his late mother’s work and is keen to spend a prolonged period of time in Africa after visiting the Cuando Cubango region in Angola in 2013.
Princess Diana visited the African country to promote the work of the anti-landmine campaign Mines Advisory Group. The Princess of Wales provoked the fury of British politicians when she called for a global ban on anti-personnel mines – a reaction which left the royal feeling “devastated.”
