Prince Harry and William reveal their stark differences as brothers in their statements on the Queen, expert claims | The Sun
PRINCE Harry and Prince William revealed their stark differences as brothers in their tributes to the Queen, a royal expert has claimed.
The grieving grandsons both released emotional statements telling of their sadness at the loss of Her Majesty.
William’s touching tribute came on Saturday just hours before he, Princess Kate, Harry and Meghan Markle dramatically reunited in Windsor.
And today Harry followed suit with a moving homage to the pair’s grandmother.
But now royal biographer Angela Levin has claimed that the two affectionate gestures have revealed stark differences in the personalities of the brothers.
It comes as…
- The King pledged to follow his mother's selfless duty in an emotional address at Westminster Hall
- Charles and Camilla jet off to Edinburgh for an emotional procession following the Queen's coffin
- It's revealed Prince Andrew ‘will have central role’ at the Queen’s funeral – despite stepping back from royal duties
- But the Duke of York is banned from wearing military uniform at the service
- Prince Harry thanks his beloved 'granny' the Queen in heartfelt tribute before referencing his 'darling wife' Meghan
- Brits will hold a minute’s silence on Sunday night to honour the late Queen Elizabeth
Speaking to The Sun she said: “When you contrast Prince William's and Prince Harry's statements, you can see the difference between the brothers.
“William’s statement was a lot about the people of Britain and the Queen’s service to her people whereas Harry’s statement is more about himself and his family.”
The Prince of Wales’ warm tribute was full of praise for the work the Queen had done in her more than 70 years of service.
He spoke of how the world lost an “extraordinary leader” and how her “historic reign” will be remembered for an eternity.

And in a nod to his future role as King, he told how he was incredibly grateful to have “had the benefit of The Queen’s wisdom”.
Meanwhile, Ms Levin believes Harry’s doting statement was much more centred around the Queen’s relationship with him, his wife and his children.
He listed several colourful interactions they had with the late queen including the special times she met his "darling" wife Meghan and hugged his kids.
He also referenced his father, with whom his relationship is said to have been strained, saying he vows to “honour” his dad in his new role as King Charles III.
And in a poignant final line referencing the late Duke of Edinburgh, he said he “smiles” knowing that she is back with his “grandpa”.
Spellings also differed in the two statements – with William paying tribute to his "grannie" and Harry speaking of his "granny".
It comes after The Sun revealed William and Harry could walk side by side behind the Queen’s coffin in plans to be discussed in coming days.
They were separated by cousin Peter Phillips as they followed Prince Philip’s cortege at his funeral 17 months ago, during the height of their feud.
Palace planners are still putting finishing touches on arrangements for two royal family processions behind the Queen’s coffin in London.
However, The Sun understands there will be discussions about whether the brothers could again be seen at each other’s sides.
An insider said: “We are certainly not in the same place as Philip’s funeral when William and Harry didn’t walk side by side.

“Things haven’t changed but it is not as intense and they can co-exist.
“But the flower visit really doesn’t change anything. It is the same situation as at Prince Philip’s funeral when William and Harry put their differences aside and supported each other and their families in that moment.”
