Prince Harry has appeared to claim that he and wife Meghan Markle were “doing the job better” than his brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, and their popularity was a threat to other members of the royal family
Speaking during episode four of the couple’s explosive Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan, Harry says: “The issue is when someone who is marrying in, who should be a supporting, a supporting act, is then stealing the limelight, or doing the job better than a person that was born to do this."
"That just upsets people as it shifts the balance.”
Harry continues as pictures of Kate and his father King Charles carrying out royal engagements flash on the screen: "Because you've been led to believe that the only way that your charities can succeed and the only way that your reputation can be grown or improved is if you're on the front page of those newspapers."
While the 38 year old doesn’t refer to his brother by name, he appears to be referring to William when he uses the term “born to do this” as his sibling is next in line to the throne.
The couple’s global popularity is said have hit its peak during their official tour of Australia in 2018, with Meghan’s friend claiming the visit was the “turning point” and the palace felt threatened.
Meghan’s pal Lucy Fraser says in the documentary: "I think Australia was a real turning point because they were so popular. So popular with the public.
"The internals at the palace were incredibly threatened by that."
Meanwhile, her Suits co-star and friend Abigail Spencer continued: "The work they were doing, the speeches, the people they were meeting, it seemed to be amazing. And then I don't understand what happened after that."
Harry then on to recall how Meghan appeared on the front of a prominent newspaper after an event that many other members of the royal family had attended.
The event was the 2019 Festival of Remembrance, a concert held every year at the Royal Albert Hall to honour veterans and service people.
He said: "First time that the penny dropped for her, M and I spent the night in a room in Buckingham Palace after an event where every single member of the family had been, including the Queen."
"She was like, 'But it's not my fault'. And I said, 'I know. And my mum felt the same way'."
Images of Princess Diana and Charles' first joint tour of Australia in the early 1980s, which also saw the Princess of Wales’ popularity skyrocket, were then played out.
The second installment of Harry and Meghan’s docuseries has been full of bombshells, including Harry’s revelation that his brother “screamed and shouted” at him during a “terrifying” meeting about him and Meghan wanting to take a step back from their roles.
The pair claim that Meghan was “not invited” to the meeting at Sandringham in January 2020.
