PRINCE WILLIAM is taking the role of the “People’s Prince” after emerging from his brother’s shadow, a royal expert has claimed.
William has won widespread praise for his documentary on the environment on Monday. Following his, ‘A Planet For Us All’ documentary, William was praised for how he emotionally described the environmental issues which face us all. In the documentary, William issued a call for action to tackle the climate change crisis as he travelled the UK, Pakistan and Tanzania.
Due to his appearance in the documentary, William was praised by viewers, with royal expert, Camilla Tominey commenting that he is now at “peace with himself”.
Referencing his exchanges with children as they opened a primary school’s new bug hotel, Ms Tominey insisted “it is William, not Harry who is taking on the role of the ‘People’s Prince’”.
It is a nod to William and Harry’s late mother Princess Diana who was dubbed the “People’s Princess”.
Referencing royal author, Ingrid Seward, Ms Tominey also spoke of how William had possibly been overshadowed by his brother, in her piece for The Daily Telegraph.

She added: “He’s very natural and not at all fake.
“He’s always had it but I think perhaps he was overshadowed by Harry.
“Now he’s no longer on the scene, we are reminded that William has the same qualities in spades.
“Becoming a parent has mellowed him.

“William has always had this ability to connect with people.
“I remember from some of his earliest engagements how much he reminded me of Diana.”
Taken under the wing of Sir David Attenborough, William has embraced his more naturalist side.
William also launched the Earthshot Prize in December, to galvanise future generations to take action.

Under the award, the multi-million-pound prize will be awarded to five winners a year over a decade.
This fund would then tackle the biggest problems facing the world by 2030.
While pushing the country to take a stand, sources close to the royal have claimed the Prince is trying to encourage collective action rather than point the figure.
The source added: “It’s about saying, ‘We can do this’, rather than feeling like it’s all too much of a daunting challenge.

“The Duke has no interest in telling people how to live their lives.
“He is realistic. What he is trying to do is come up with solutions to the challenges we face.”
The Royal Family has faced turbulence following the explosive revelations made in Robert Lacey’s book, ‘Battle of Brothers: The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult’.
