Prince Harry exploited Spare title in annoyed jab at brother Prince William

Prince Harry is said to have made clear the title difference between he and his brother Prince William with an "annoyed" jab through his memoir title.

Spare, the upcoming biography of the Duke of Sussex, is set for release next year and one expert believes the title is taking aim at the Prince of Wales.

By definition, the use of "spare" is an historic note of Royal Family structures, with an heir and a spare apparent in historic lineage, something Harry "revelled" in as a youngster, The Express reported.

It would appear Harry thinks of himself as said spare, piling pressure onto his older brother with a title jab, one expert claimed.

Royal expert Rebecca English claimed a younger Harry "revelled" in the title, which at the time appeared to mark the young Prince with "less responsibility" than his older brother.

Recalling an anecdote that saw Princess Diana' bodyguard, Ken Wolfe, chastise the youngster, Harry is said to have replied: "Well, it doesn't matter, I can do what I want because, basically, I'm not going to have the responsibility that you have."

Expert English added: "I remember, really distinctly, when Prince George and Princess Charlotte were born, I think it was Prince George, Harry was asked by a broadcaster how he felt about going down the pecking order.

"He basically said 'great, like it means basically I'm one less away from all that stress and restrain and responsibility that comes with being the heir to the throne'."

Prompted by host of Palace Confidential, Jo Evlin, English revealed a turning point for Harry's feelings over the title.

The "latter stages" of Harry's time in the Royal Family appear to have been the turning point for the Duke of Sussex.

English said that it was "clear" the Prince was "quite annoyed by the fact that he was playing second fiddle to William" and that he was "in a rush" to get "everything he wanted to done".
