Allegedly, Prince William wasn’t too happy when he heard of Prince Harry’s idea for the Invictus Games.
In “Spear,” his eagerly anticipated memoir, Harry claims that William became jealous when he heard his brother’s idea of an annual sporting event to benefit injured, injured, and sick service members and veterans.
“He seemed very upset,” the former military pilot wrote in his Jan. 10 post, claiming that William had complained he was going to drain money from their foundation.
Harry, 38, called his brother’s case “ridiculous” and explained that the funding would come from the Endeavor Fund, a branch he “set up specifically for the rehabilitation of veterans,” as well as donors.
The Duke of Sussex blamed the then 40-year-old’s reluctance on “sibling rivalry”.
He recalled, “I covered my eyes with my hand. Aren’t we over it? All this heir versus surrogate stuff? Aren’t we just too old for this tired, child-like dynamic?”
Harry continues, “He was married and had a baby on the way.” “Meanwhile, I was ordering food on my own and washing my dishes in front of the sink. Dad’s sink! I still live with my dad, [King Charles III]. Game over, man. I won.”
The duo’s tense sibling dynamic is a theme that is repeated heavily throughout the volume.
In the diary, Harry even refers to the Prince of Wales as his “beloved brother and sworn enemy”.

Michael Strahan grilled California-based King about these “strong words” in a Clip released ThursdayFour days before the duo’s “Good Morning America” interview was scheduled to air.
“There has always been this strange competition between us,” replied the Duke of Sussex. “I think he really plays it or he always plays it [and] additional [labels]. “
Harry claims his father played a role in the dynamic, accusing King Charles of calling him a “reserve” the day he was born.
