Prince Harry ‘was the spare’ says Dickie Arbiter
Former royal press secretary Dickie Arbiter told True Royalty TV that the world was the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s oyster but they blew it. He claimed that Prince Harry was content in his role of “spare” in the Royal Family until he met Meghan Markle, who could not accept it.
Mr Arbiter said: “Their world was their oyster and they blew it.
“They literally blew it, they had everything, I don’t think everything was what Meghan wanted.
“Harry was the spare and the Cambridges are the heirs, he accepted his role, he was always born to that.
“Until Meghan came along and she could not accept that, she couldn’t accept being in the second row.

He added: “Prince William derived a lot of strength from the idea that he would be king, and have great responsibility.

“That kept him going, while Harry went the other way from around the age of four.
“Once Harry was misbehaving in the back of a car and his nanny told him to shape up.
“Harry responded by saying he didn’t need to shape up because he would not be king.
