Royal BOMBSHELL: How Prince Harry ‘felt abandoned by POISONOUS’ Prince William atmosphere
PRINCE Harry “must have felt abandoned” when growing up in the atmosphere around Prince William, according to a former royal insider.
Prince Harry and Prince William are dividing their royal households, after rumours of a rift between the two brothers and their families. Harry and Meghan Markle are due to relocate to Windsor next year, whereas William and Kate will remain in Kensington Palace with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. A former insider has claimed that this is not the first time the pair have been at the centre of tensions within the royal household, though.
Paul Burrell worked for Princess Diana for ten years after leaving service as the Queen’s footman in 1987.
The former royal butler speaks about his relationship with Diana and her boys in 2017 Amazon Prime Documentary “The DianaStory”.
He tells how Diana tried to ensure the young princes had as much of a normal family life as possible.
“They never saw themselves as royal, not until William was five or six,” Burrell says.
However, he claims that whispers in the household began around that time.
“I heard Nanny saying to him in the nursery: ‘You’d better have an extra sausage, because you’re going to be king one day.’
“That’s where the poison begins in a household – where people are whispering in the ears of the young.
“Harry must have felt abandoned.”
However, he says that any ill-feeling did not last.
“I don’t think it had any long-lasting effect,” he continues.
“He always knew that William was born first and William was next in line, and accepted it.”
“Harry’s got a very big heart,” he adds.
Burrell also offers his opinion on how the two Princes might each fare as King.
“Because William is so stoic, he’ll make a great king,” he says.
“Look at Harry, he’d make a fun king, but not really a good one.”
He adds that Princess Diana, however, would call her youngest son “Good King Harry”.
Former royal protection officer Inspector Ken Wharfe recently confirmed Diana’s affectionate name for Harry, adding: “Diana thought that Harry, given his predilection to being quite robust and good at taking orders, would have made a good king himself.”
