Harry’s Diana references ‘must be uncomfortable for William’, expert claims

A royal commentator has claimed that Prince Harry’s frequent references to his late mother Princess Diana must be “uncomfortable” for his older brother Prince William.

The relationship between the two brothers has reportedly been tense since Prince Harry left the Royal Family for the US with his wife Meghan Markle last year.

The Duke of Sussex acknowledged that he and William were on "different paths" during his explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.

Now, with author Andrew Morton commenting that Diana's continued presence has been a “third wheel” to Harry and Meghan’s relationship, one royal expert has pointed out that the constant publicity of his mother’s lasting impact must be difficult for the Duke of Cambridge too.

“It’s interesting to know how that will play out with regards to William, because he’s always seeing this reference to his mother, which must be quite uncomfortable for him as well," she claimed.

“That here are these memories being brought up by his brother on the other side of the Atlantic.

“It’s a very strange dynamic.”

And, reacting to Andrew Morton’s “third wheel” comment on the Mail’s Palace Confidential podcast, Assistant Editor of the Mail on Sunday Kate Mansey suggested: “I do think it probably is fair.

“Every time we’ve seen Meghan and Harry launch something, there’s always been a very overt reference to his mother, and it seems to be guiding a lot of what they do.

“Even when they launched Archewell, there was a picture of his mother that he used when he launched his new foundation.”

This comes as Netflix have released a new programme, Diana: The Musical, which some viewers have slammed as “truly awful”.

In the same podcast, Diary Editor Richard Eden suggested that the release of the panned programme was the result of Harry and Meghan having "no control" over a deal they signed with the streaming giant.

The couple have not yet commented on the musical's release.
