Over the years, Prince Harry and Prince William were raised to be natural born “leaders”, which meant they were trained to be “alphas” in the royal household. A royal insider told PEOPLE: “They are both alphas and raised to be leaders.” However, the brothers will be fulfilling different roles in the Royal Family. William will take over his father Prince Charles‘ role as king in due time, while Harry – who is sixth in line to the throne – will soon become a first time dad.
Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have now moved away from William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, to start a new chapter at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
The royals have are now anticipating the arrival of their child, who is due in just a few weeks time.
Royal historian Robert Lacey: “It’s very important for Prince Harry and Meghan to flower and create a new direction.”
Despite their distance, William, Kate, Meghan and Harry often reunite to attend formal family events together.
A close family friend said: “There is never any doubt that they will be there for each other 100 percent and support each other when it matters.
The source added: “Maybe they’ll come back together a little later It’s another stage in the growing up. Sometimes you have to break away in order to come back.”
William and Harry joined their father Prince Charles in a rare joint engagement last week.
The trio attended the premiere for Sir David Attenborough’s Netflix documentary “Our Planet” last week, in a bid to support their shared passion for saving the planet.
They arrived at the Natural History Museum looking smart in tuxedos, and were seen mingling with TV stars and celebrities including David Beckham with his son Brooklyn and singer Ellie Goulding.
Sir David Attenborough, 92, made the move to Netflix for the eight-part series, which will carry an overtly environmental message exploring the natural world and how to protect it.
Charles, who is president of WWF-UK, and his two sons attended the premiere to show the royal family’s support for action against climate change.
Sir David took to the stage before the film, and told guests: “I’ve always believed that few people will protect the natural world if they don’t first love and understand it.
“Many secrets in the archive series reveal nature at its most fascinating and delightful. Others prove that good things do indeed come to those who wait, but for a very long time as the many talented cameramen and women who recorded all kinds of wonders for us.
“The natural world is not just nice to have it fundamentally matters to each and every one of us.”
