William is still seething mad
It’s been two weeks since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had their explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
During this interview, Harry claimed that his older brother Prince William felt “trapped” in his life as a royal, but a source close to both brothers is now saying that the elder one does not feel this way at all.
“I am part of the system with them, I always have been, but I guess — and I’m very aware of this — my brother can’t leave that system, but I have,” Harry said.
“My father and my brother are trapped. They don’t get to leave, and I have huge compassion for that.”
When asked if William wanted to leave the royal family, Harry replied, “I don’t know. I can’t speak for him.”
A source close to the brothers told The Sunday Times that William found Harry’s comments to be “way off the mark.”
“He has a path set for him and he’s completely accepting of his role. He is very much his grandmother’s grandson in that respect of duty and service,” the source said.
Another source close to William said that the Duke of Cambridge was “reeling” after the interview first aired, adding that “his head is all over the place on it.”
While speaking to Oprah, Harry acknowledged that he and William are on “different paths.”
“I love William to bits. He’s my brother. We’ve been through hell together,” Harry said. “But we are on different paths.”
During the interview, Meghan claimed that she was hit with racism from within the royal family, claiming that an unnamed senior royal questioned how dark her then-unborn son Archie’s skin would be.
Harry refused to name this family member, only saying that it was neither Queen Elizabeth nor Prince Philip. Meghan also claimed that she felt so isolated as a royal that she considered committing suicide at one point during her pregnancy.
