Prince William delivered a speech at the opening of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland but his message was also seen as a statement debunking Prince Harry's claims about his sad childhood.
According to Daily Express, the Duke of Cambridge subtlety tore down of his brother's revelations on his new mental health series. However, it echoed the statement Buckingham Palace released on behalf of Queen Elizabeth, which said that "recollections may vary," against Harry and Meghan Markle's narrative.
In his recent speech, Prince William said that he has many happy recollections of Scotland because this was the holiday place of the royal family. The Duke of Cambridge recalled how much he enjoyed spending the summer break in the Highlands with his relatives.
In contrast, Harry has claimed that his royal life contributed to his misery. He said that he didn't want to be in this institution, much less raise his children in the same mold or system because it triggered his genetic pain.
Prince William also pulled a quote from the Bible to include in his speech before the members of the Church of Scotland. He quoted Proverbs 19:20: "Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom for the future." Royal correspondent Daniela Elser suggested that this Biblical line was also directed at Harry, who has refused to accept the advice of his brother and those around him about his life, his relationship with Markle and their responsibilities to the Crown.
Since stepping down in his royal roles, the Duke of Sussex has been charting his own path in California and establishing his own brand with Markle through their new foundation, Archewell. He has been doing the press rounds in recent weeks to promote his mental health series, which he co-produced with Oprah Winfrey.
Sources close to William said that the Duke of Cambridge "can't comprehend" why the Duke of Sussex has to throw the royal family under the bus to make headlines for his new show. Apparently, William feels that the matters Harry has been revealing in public should be a private discussion among the family.
As it is, the relationship between Prince William and Harry is still tense, the sources said. However, both are expected to reunite in July for the unveiling of the statue dedicated to their mother, Princess Diana. Reports have suggested that Harry will definitely fly back to London, albeit for a brief time only, to attend the special event.
