Angela Levin is the author of ‘Harry: Conversations with the Prince’ which was published last year. Speaking to The Conservative Woman, a right-wing UK publication, she highlighted a significant divergence between the two brothers. Ms Levin commented: “Prince Harry is more emotional than William and wears his heart on his sleeve.
“Although his mother, the late Princess Diana, did her best to make sure he didn’t miss out it was hard to complete with an older bother destined to be king one day.
“Harry adored his mother and marvelled at how much ‘fun’ she was.
“He said he felt safe because a key aim of her life was to ‘protect’ him and William.”
Prince William was born in 1982, with Harry following two years later in 1984.

The brothers experienced tragedy at a young age, when their mother was killed in a Paris car crash in 1997.
At the time William was 15 years old and Harry just 12.
Ms Levin accompanied Harry on a number of engagements and secured a private interview with the Prince before writing her book.
She said: “After five months of trying Kensington Palace allowed me to accompany Prince Harry on various engagements.

“At regular intervals I also asked one of his staff if I could do a personal interview with him.
“It took over a year before they agreed, but said it could only last for 20 minutes.
“I had seen countless times how inspirational and caring he was with people of all ages and types, especially those who were psychologically damaged.
“I asked if he was also using these occasions to try to help work through his own mental health issues.
“He was silent for a while, then said: ‘You’re right, of course’, and we had a wide-ranging conversation that lasted much, much longer than twenty minutes.”
