Harry competing with William and Charles to be the better royal, expert claims

Prince Harry is "competing" with his brother, Prince William, and father Charles to be the "better royal" an expert has claimed.

Royal biographer Angela Levin believes that Harry is becoming fed up being the "spare to the heir" and wants to be "more like Diana" as he carves out his path in California.

Speaking on Andrew Pierce's LBC radio show on Friday, Levin said: "I think it's because he's fed up with being the spare to the heir and he wants to be strong and powerful so he's making these demands, small and not so small, and he's going to build up his capacity to do that I fear.

"He's competing with his brother and his father to be the better royal and more like Diana."

The two brothers came together on July 1 for the unveiling of Princess Diana's memorial statue on what would have been her 60th birthday.

Despite months of reported tensions between the brothers they appeared in good spirits as they united in their love for their mother.

Levin said: "It was a credit to their mother because she tried to bring them with the best manners, particularly if they were being watched by the public, and I think they did very well."

After the ceremony on Friday the brothers issued a rare joint statement, saying: "Today, on what would have been our mother's 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character – qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better.

"Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen for ever as a symbol of her life and her legacy."

Speaking after the event, sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley said: "I think that their mother is there in a real physical sense, perhaps in the evening when the grounds are shut they could easily come here for a moment of quiet reflection and I hope that will give them some sort of comfort or solace."

He added: "Uppermost in my mind was to do something for the princes, the princess was a very public figure and in many respects an icon but she was somebody's mother. So I paid the greatest heed to both princes in what they had to say.

"And in many ways it was a collaborative effort, they made a huge contribution, in many ways I could say the sculpture belongs to them as well – they helped make it."
