Yet more insight into Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship is coming to light thanks to royal historian Robert Lacey’s new book Battle of Brothers, and it’s honestly pretty sad.
In an excerpt from the book via People, Lacey says that “both brothers have been damaged by their upbringings; both have reacted by finding different solutions. There is so much pain and trauma in this story, going right back to the beginning.”
Despite being “raised to be close and protective of each other,” William and Harry’s drama can be traced back to their differing feelings regarding duty to the Crown: “Fundamental to the whole saga is the clash of love versus duty,” Lacey says, adding that Wills and Harry face “potential tragedy” if they can’t figure their relationship out.
“This compares with Edward VIII’s abdication in 1936 and the death of Princess Diana in 1997,” he writes. “It’s of that scale. And it’s a challenge that’s yet to be resolved.”
Yikes. Here’s to hoping that the IRL situation is far less dramatic than this book makes it out to be!
