The name Spare also hints towards the same. Since childhood, the Sussex royal has played second fiddle to his elder brother Prince William. The brothers were often called the heir and spare by the British media. Interestingly, in the docuseries as well, it was the Prince of Wales who bore the brunt of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s anger. Looking at the constant attacks on the future king, royal expert Jennie Bond reflected on the Duke’s thought process.

“So, what did Harry want? Did he want the destiny into which William was born? Does he want to be King? I think not. He doesn’t like very much about the way the institution of our monarchy works,” Bond said in a candid conversation.
The royal commentator further gave an example of how Queen Mother was devastated when her husband, George VI, was given the crown. The late king was the second-born but was made the monarch following the removal of Edward VIII from the throne. Citing the history, Bond claimed that Prince Harry would never be happy being the king.
Meanwhile, ahead of the memoir release, Prince Harry made a revelation of wanting his brother and father back. However, the chances of reconciliation between Prince William and his younger brother are slim following the Sussexes’ public drama.
