PRINCE William alarmed his parents and the Queen as a naughty youngster, a royal biographer reveals.
Prince William is now the proud father of his and Kate Middleton’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. However as a boisterous young boy, the elder brother of Prince Harry concerned his parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and his grandmother the Queen, with his behaviour. Katie Nicholl’s 2010 book “William and Harry” delves into the lives of the young princes.
The royal biographer revealed: “Diana and Charles became alarmed that the rumbustious William needed more discipline.”
Added to this, she said: “The Queen was increasingly aware that her grandson misbehaved.”
Ms Nicholl described how: “Mealtimes were an ordeal and would frequently end up with William throwing his supper across the table and being banished to the nursery by his exasperated parents.”
She also explained how “the Queen had noticed William had become quite a handful” as a toddler at Balmoral.
Her Majesty encouraged both William and Harry to “let off steam” at her beloved Scottish estate.
The Queen also reportedly “reminded Nanny Barnes that it was her job to instil discipline”.
This move would go on to cause tensions with Princess Diana, however, who “began to feel excluded” by William and Harry’s nanny.
Ms Nicholl also revealed how the headstrong young William “shouted angrily” at his father Prince Charles during a heated argument.
She reported how he said: “I hate you, Papa. I hate you so much. Why do you make Mummy cry all the time?”
