The Duke of Sussex is determined to make an impact before Prince George turns 18 because he fears he will be “irrelevant” after that, a new book says.
an upcoming book era‘ claims royal correspondent Valentine Lowe Prince Harry When he wanted to venture into the same fields as his brother, the Prince of Wales, he was frustrated by his advisers “holding back”.
published in eraLiu talks to royals for his book Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown When he was still a serving royal, he was told Harry had long been “concerned that he was running out of time”, according to the report.
He quoted an insider saying: “He has this stuff, he has a shelf life. He’s fixed. [on] this.He compares himself to his uncle [Prince Andrew].
“He’d say, ‘I have time to make that impact. Because I can’. That’s his idea until George turns 18. “Then I’m the one running away. “He honestly thinks, ‘I have this platform now, time is limited. I want to move forward, move forward.'”
Duke staff assured him that if he “lays the right foundation now,” he would still have an impact later in life, the book said, but that didn’t allay his concerns.
Harry’s desire to consolidate his legacy in the same areas as Prince William “could lead to tensions,” Low wrote, claiming that some of his advisers “spent a lot of time convincing him…because it doesn’t fit the bigger picture.” The three of them – William, Kate and Harry – are trying to make it happen.”
Low also claimed that Harry had “a deep mistrust of the courtiers at Buckingham Palace and his father’s palace”.
The Duke has a long history of dissatisfaction with the British tabloids, but his “continued struggle with the media” has reportedly led to tensions with his own staff if he doesn’t think they are on his side.
Lowe quoted a source as saying: “He uses that phrase all the time when you don’t want to fight the fight he wants, ‘Palace Syndrome’ because you’ve been institutionalized.
“Giving to the media is a key symptom of whether you’re developing it. It’s a constant test of loyalty: ‘Will you protect me? Or are you just becoming one of them, who won’t fight for me? Too tired? .”
The new book, due out on October 6, also details Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royal staff during the royal staff.
