Mr Scobie and Ms Durand write: “Prince Charles, who funds many of his own public, charitable and private activities through the revenues of his private estate, the Duchy of Cornwall ‘controlled the purse strings’ which also caused some issues between William and Harry.
“The brothers sometimes had to vie for additional funds for projects from their father, who also helped cover expenses related to Camilla and some of those for his sons (including Kate and Meghan’s wardrobes).
“‘They actually genuinely have to debate who gets what amount of money from their father to fund their projects’, an aide said. “Add in the fact that there is an inherent hierarchy and that is really tricky.’”
The aide added: “When you are born in this family dictates your position of power, and because of that, Harry has always come second to his brother, especially when it comes to funding.”
