"he has a path set for him and he's completely accepting of his role. He is very much his grandmother's grandson in that respect of duty and service," the source added
Days after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview with Oprah, the statements made in the interview are still making headlines. The royal family seems to be 'addressing' the explosive claims made by the couple one by one without directly dismissing them. Prince William however has apparently disagreed with some of the comments made by Prince Harry about him during the interview he said that his father, Prince Charles, and his brother are "trapped" within the monarchy, reported People.
During the interview, Prince Harry said, "I am part of the system with them, I always have been, but I guess — and I'm very aware of this — my brother can't leave that system, but I have. My father and my brother are trapped. They don't get to leave, and I have huge compassion for that." When asked by Oprah if William wanted to leave the royal family, he replied, "I don't know. I can't speak for him." In a report by The Sunday Times, an insider claimed that Prince William who is second in line to the throne, found his statements "way off the mark." The source said, "he has a path set for him and he's completely accepting of his role. He is very much his grandmother's grandson in that respect of duty and service." The individual further added that the Duke of Cambridge was "reeling" after the interview first aired. "His head is all over the place on it," the source added, reported People.
During the interview, the Duke of Sussex admitted that he and his brother are on "different paths," "I love William to bits. He's my brother. We've been through hell together, but we are on different paths," he explained. He then said that despite the "space" between them, he "will always be there" for William and his family. A little earlier, William had hit back at the racism claims that were made after Meghan Markle revealed that there were "concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie's] skin might be when he's born" "We are very much not a racist family," William told a reporter and when asked if he had spoken to his brother, he replied, "No, I haven't spoken to him yet, but I will do."
It was reported that William and his father have been in contact with Harry. "Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too," Gayle King revealed on CBS This Morning. "The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation. And I think what is still upsetting to them is the palace keep saying they want to work it out privately, but yet, they believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging against Meghan, still. But they both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. At the end of the day, that is Harry's family," she added, according to People.
