‘Prince William has made it very clear that his children are not Harry’s responsibility’ as ‘hurt’ Duke of Sussex says he worries that either George, Charlotte or Louis ‘will end up like me, the spare’
- Prince Harry expressed that he is worried about other ‘spares’ in the Royal family
- Prince William made it clear that his children are not his brother’s responsibility
- Harry said that would not allow Archie to face the same ‘traumatic’ experience
- The relationship between the brothers ‘couldn’t be worse’ according to Harry
Prince Harry voiced concerns about the future of the other ‘spares’ in the royal family to his brother – who ‘made it very clear that the children are not his responsibility’.
The Duke of Sussex spoke candidly about his worries for Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis in an interview with The Telegraph, noting that he hopes his efforts to highlight his own pain will pay dividends for the next generation.
‘Though William and I have talked about it once or twice, and he has made it very clear to me that his kids are not my responsibility, I still feel a responsibility,’ he said.
‘Out of those three children, at least one will end up like me, the spare. And that hurts, that worries me.’

The Duke also spoke of his own children, saying that he would not allow Archie, his eldest son, to go through the same ‘traumatic’ experience as him and his brother.
After taking ayahuasca, a South American psychoactive brewed drink used in Shamanic medicine, Harry says that the experience created a ‘further divide’ between him and William.
Talking of his experience with ayahuasca, he said: ‘I suddenly realised – wow! – it’s not about the crying. She [Diana] wants me to be happy.’
He said during the experience he learned acceptance that his mother was gone but wanting him to be happy and is still a part of his life.
‘And now, as two brothers, if one of you goes through that experience and the other one doesn’t, it naturally creates a further divide between you. Which is really sad,’ said Harry.
His memoir was a bid to save the monarchy ‘from themselves’, Harry explained.

The Prince said that he did not intend to destroy the monarchy, but wanted to save them from themselves, and that it was his ‘life’s mission’ to right the wrongs that drove him out.
‘This is not about trying to collapse the monarchy, this is about trying to save them from themselves.
‘And I know that I will get crucified by numerous people for saying that,’ he said.
Harry also suggested that reform was needed in the Royal family.
‘If only 10 per cent of the scrutiny that was put on me and M was put on this institution, we wouldn’t be in this mess right now,’ he said in a condemning remark.
‘It’s so dirty. It’s so dark. And it will continue and it will carry on and I look forward to the day when we are no longer part of it, but I worry about who’s next,’ he added.
‘What I’ve realised is that you don’t make any friends, especially within your family, because everyone has learned to accept that trauma [as] part of life,’ he said.
‘Lots of people go through lots of s–t… when it comes to me and William, the fascinating part is that we both experienced a similar traumatic experience,’ he added.
