Prince Harry Admitted He’s Jealous of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Marriage
It wasn’t that long ago that Prince William, Prince Harry, and their wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, were dubbed the “Fab Four” and the “Core Four.” It appeared that they were all getting along so well, but things aren’t always how they appear.
While the public may never know how much of what’s been written about their “royal feud” is true, it seems that there is some tension between them. Now, there are reports that it stems from Harry being jealous of the Duke of the Duchess of Cambridge‘s marriage. Here’s more on that, plus what William told his sibling about Meghan Markle that really upset him.
What Harry said about being ‘jealous’ of William
The reports about Harry being jealous of William began circulating recently after an interview resurfaced in which he admitted feeling that way.
Following a 20-week tour of Afghanistan in 2013 Harry said, “Before coming out here I was very jealous of my brother. And back home he gets to go home to his wife and dog, whereas out here we don’t. We’re stuck playing PlayStation in a tent full of men.”
The now Duke of Sussex eventually met Markle and became a married man on May 19, 2018. But not long after they tied the knot, the feud rumors started swirling and some royal watchers believe that’s because Harry didn’t think William was very welcoming towards his bride.
How Prince William felt about Harry marrying Meghan
Even though Harry always supported his brother’s relationship with Middleton, he reportedly didn’t get that in return when he was dating Markle.
In the documentary William & Harry: Princes at War, royal experts revealed that William voiced concerns about the former actress and how quickly things were moving.
“The biggest cause of their so-called rift was Wills tried to warn Harry when he met Meghan not to rush into it — they’d only known each other less than a year before they decided to get engaged,” journalist Carole Malone said. “He sat him down and just told him to take it slow and not to rush into it.”
There are claims that Harry went “ballistic” after that and accused William of trying to ruin his relationship.
“It was largely down to Harry resenting his brother. Harry supported his brother from the outset with Kate and he felt very let down that he wasn’t getting his brother’s full, 100% support with his relationship with Meghan and things changed,” royal author Kate Nicholl explained.
William isn’t happy with Harry’s recent comments and behavior
It’s also been reported that the second in line to the throne is annoyed by his brother’s previous comments about having children.
According to a source, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge weren’t pleased with the Duke of Sussex’s recent remarks about how many children he and Markle plan on having. Harry’s comment that they want no more than two children in order to be kinder to the environment reportedly rubbed William and Middleton, who already have three children, the wrong way.
Not only that but many believe that Markle and Harry’s recent antics, which have been met with public backlash, are concerning William about how the monarchy is being viewed.
“I would think it might bother William a bit because he might see the way that Harry and Meghan do things as being detrimental to the business of the monarchy as a whole,” royal commentator Ingrid Seward said.
