Harry was ‘overshadowed’ when William was invited to see Queen Mother – Expert

Prince Harry felt "overshadowed" when the Queen Mother gave Prince William more attention during their younger years, claims a royal author.

Robert Jobson, royal biographer, claimed the Queen Mother would regularly invite William to see her on his own without his younger brother Harry.

William, who is second in line to the throne, would also often be arranged to sit next to her at family gatherings, Express reported.

This allegedly became a "source of tension" between the two brothers, who have been seen to have a tumultuous relationship over the years.

In his new book, William At 40, Mr Jobson writes: "By the time he was just eight years old, Prince William was already used to being treated with deference by some of the royal staff.

"On top of that, the Queen Mother made it quite clear which of the two little princes deserved more of her attention.

"At family gatherings, their great-grandmother would often call for a chair to be placed next to hers, then ask for William to be seated next to her.

"She would also invite him to go to see her at Clarence House — without his younger brother.

"Not surprisingly, Prince Harry felt overshadowed — though he has never publicly expressed hurt or resentment at being the less favoured child.

The former editor of Vanity Fair, Tina Brown, offered a series of comments on what she believes will happen after the Queen's death.

Brown has said Prince Harry may split his time between England and the US, but is unconvinced that the Duchess of Sussex will be fully on board for the potential plan.

The royal expert further went on to say that Harry and Meghan had made a "disaster for both sides" with their renouncement of royal duties.
