Harry and William's Relationship

Harry doesn't have to do anything with William if he didn't want too. He doesn't have to share a household or a foundation. He doesn't have to do joint engagements with him or Kate. He didn't have to move from Clarence House and follow his brother to KP.

Charles doesn't do squat with his siblings. Harry could do the same if he wanted too.

I live by myself and my fridge has next to nothing in it. When I go to my friends who have families, their fridge is so full. Harry is a single guy in the middle of huge city with lots places near by to eat out. William is married to Kate who we know likes to cook plus they have a house keeper to keep everything stocked up. Why wouldn't Harry come over for food.

I think sometimes one has to take things at face value - first impressions can be very important. So I saw the video once and came away thinking how well William and Harry get on and how funny it is that Harry raid the fridge at the Cambridge's fridge.

Naturally one could watch the video over and over again to convince oneself otherwise, but once is enough to form an impression.

They have a normal and loving brotherly relationship.

^ I don't believe that Harry goes over to 1A and takes stuff from the Cambridges' fridge. He kept quiet during that particular anecdote of William's and said nothing. William stated first that he and Harry see a lot of each other and then contradicted himself almost immediately and said they don't now 'because of competing schedules'. So, which is it? They do see a lot of each other and Harry is constantly at their place for food/meals or...a bit of PR?

I think William hogged the conversation and tried to top what Harry was saying about their father and grandfather laughing inappropriately during school plays. William comes across as the reverse of relaxed and amusing, and I could see tension between the brothers.

A lot of posters here say they are constantly joshing and having brotherly digs at each other. Would somebody be kind enough to point out where in that short interview Harry had a dig at William? Because I can actually note at least half a dozen occasions in past few years when William has tried publicly to put Harry down while Harry has done the reverse a couple of times.

I agree! And and another thing,so far I didn't understand about the home of Harry, it seems that he lives of favor with the brother and sister-in-law, but he is not prince too?? he also had no right to live there (palace)? I never understood!

He said that they see eachother alot when they can. Meaning, they don't always have alot of time to spend together but when their schedules permit they try to see eachother.

I agree that the William story was a bit much. Not that he was pushing but because the two storys was very similar. Although, I think that can be blamed a bit on editing. I am sure both Harry and William said a few more things and they could have cut together William and Harrys parts better.

In this interview Harry didn't jab on William, but in most others he does. And even when William is not there. They both do it. They are not "putting down". They know eachother and joke about stuff they know is ok to joke about. When you know eachother well you can joke about stuff that to others might seem insensitive but because you know it's not a sore spot on the person it is fully ok. Like Harry and Kate has joked about Williams baldness, William jokes about Harry being a ginger etc. I don't see why people are making a mountain out of a molehill.

And also, so what if they were not close? Not all siblings are. Doesn't mean you don't love them and want good things for them. Just that you might be different people or in different stages of life!

Harry has his own separate apartment at Kensington (Nottingham Cottage) and I've never see it implied that he "has no right to live there".

I think it was a good natured interview and don't see any of the tension or drama some of you are looking for.

Just the fact that William say that Harry steals food from the fridge, it seems that he lives there "favor", and I noticed Harry appeared disappointed when he heard

I still have to watch the video, so I won't comment on this until I have my perspective of things. Generally thinking, I do think that their relationship has cooled off in the past two years or so... it's just a personal feeling I get by watching them interacting.

I think they get along, but now William has obligations that Harry has not. William is married, raised a family, meanwhile Harry is single and has more freedom.
They previously had more time to do more things the two, now you can not do both. But I believe and do well.

It doesn't happen as much here but there are Harry-centric blogs that are convinced William hates Harry, William plots against Harry, William is jealous of Harry, Harry is secretly being groomed to be King, blah, blah, blah. The conspiracies never end.

I don't understand the desire by some to see drama between the two but it exists on social media.

Conspiracies exist forever. This theory that Harry is being prepared in secret to be king, is absurd.

Other than at Eton and maybe a year or so Ludgrove. They haven't really been in the same place other than training at the RAF for a couple of months when they shared a house and briefly at Sandhurst. William was at university and then in the service. Harry finished school, did his gap year and did his military service in different areas where William was at. When William leaves the RAF, Harry has in South Pole trek, Australia Army time and African volunteer time. Now that everyone is out of the military maybe they will have more time together.

I agree Jacknch. And as other posters have pointed out there due to editing we likely have not seen/heard all of the participants' comments and appearances. IMHO the editors chose the scenes that they believed would fit into the timeframe and were the best of what they filmed.

Good points Skippyboo. I find it easy to believe that he has a standing invitation to come over. Plus due to the fact that the Cambridges would have a well-stocked fridge, I can imagine that whomever is preparing the meal would be pleased to see their food enjoyed.

I think William said that because of their current schedules they do not see much of each other so his jab at Harry taking food came across as mean spirited, especially since he was trying to say they were close.

The first time I saw the part with W&H I liked it, but after playing it a few time I am convinced they should not have included W&H.

There was a lot of awkward moments,

Oh dear I guess you see what you want to see depending on your point of view. Everyone else saw the closeness.

Harry has his own apartment, and if you don't think he couldn't get whatever food or personal items he needed delivered by staff whenever he wanted it, I have a bridge to sell you.


It sounded to me like a "normalizing" anecdote, meant to point out that they're close enough to be in and out of each other's homes. Nothing more, nothing less.

It was a TV show the interview would have been edited and not in the order it was shown. Everyone calm down they don't hate each other , see each other every now and then no doubt text each other but don't live in each other's pockets. William is a married man with children don't think Kate would be too happy if Harry came before them. It was a Ant and Dec interview.

William acknowledged that since they both left the Forces, their programmes (charity interest, agendas etc) are different, which is why it is nice to be neighbours - he also revealed that Harry pops round to steal all the food!

I was quite surprised at how relaxed William was, joking with lots of banter and he as Harry are more alike than we are lead to believe.
We rarely see William interact on a personal level and his well-known antipathy toward the media doesn't help. This programme has been able to show a more relaxed and engaged William.

Well this doco is already dated seeing that William, Catherine and the kids spend 90% of their at Anmer Hall and not at KP Apartment 1A, so they are certainly not next door neighbours most of the time. And then William spends his off-duty time with the wife and kids with the occasional Royal Engagement . . . Harry has his interests and engagements as well so they are definitely spending a lot less time together. But they could be texting each other daily for all we know. Or not!

What confuses me is that this was supposed to be a doco about 40 years of the Princes Trust. I think we all got short-changed.

I love the Tom and Lorenzo take on the two brothers; Harry always flinging open the door of Will and Kate's place and walking in like a sitcom.

They sound like two normal siblings, comfortable enough with each other but not up each other's butts all the time.
