PRINCE WILLIAM revealed how frustrating it can be to live with his brother, Prince Harry, in 2017, shortly after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their engagement.
Prince Harry made a surprising statement during an interview, admitting he and his brother, Prince William, had grown apart. In a documentary filmed throughout his 10-day tour of Africa with Meghan – that ITV aired this month – the Prince claimed he and Prince William are now on “different paths” and have “good days” and “bad days”. Many royals fans were saddened by the Prince’s statement, as Harry used to be incredibly close to both his brother and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.
The trio would often appear together at events and the Royal Foundation, which Harry and Meghan left, had huge successes with projects like the Invictus Games for injured veterans and the Heads Together campaign.
It is not exactly clear why or when the Duke of Sussex started growing apart from William and Kate, but many experts claim it was shortly after his royal wedding to Meghan.
Only a few of months before, William had a heartfet response to the news of their engagement.
The Duke, who was on an official visit to Finland, spoke of the joy his family felt for Harry and wished him and Meghan “all the happiness in this very exciting time”.

However, he could not resist poking fun at the Prince and revealed how frustrating it was to live with him
Speaking during a visit to a Helsinki-based charity, the Duke said: “The family is all very excited, delighted for them both and wishing them all the happiness in this very exciting time.
“And for me personally I hope it means he stays out of my fridge, it will stop him scrounging off all my food, he’s done over the last few years.”

Before then, he reportedly frequently stayed at the four-bedroom cottage Kate and William rented just outside their university town, and the trio would often visit Balmoral together.
When William and Kate graduated and moved to a roomy rented farmhouse in Anglesey, Harry was said to be a frequent visitor when he had time away from his Army duties.
Commenting on his brother’s wedding to Meghan in 2017, William added: “It’s a fantastic process you go through, the engagement and the build up to the wedding and things like that.”
“So they’ve got a lot of happy times ahead of them and I think they’re very caught up in the moment and I wish them all the happiness and success in planning the wedding.

“I hope it goes really well.”
Despite William’s hopes, both Meghan and Harry admitted in the recent ITV documentary that they are both struggling with media scrutiny.
The Duchess told broadcaster Tom Bradby that she and her husband are finding royal life so difficult to the point that they are not living but just “existing”.
The revelations sparked concerns the couple might leave the Royal Family entirely.
