Princess Diana made a “fatal mistake” when she chose to raise Prince Harry and Prince William equally, according to royal commentator Lady Colin Campbell.
The two brothers’ relationship has allegedly deteriorated in recent years, with Harry admitting in his now-famous interview with Oprah Winfrey in March that they were on “different paths.”
And now, Lady C claims that this is partly due to their mother’s equal treatment of them as children. When the Princess of Wales was tragically killed in a traffic collision in 1997, Harry and William were only 12 and 15 years old, respectively.
In a video posted to her YouTube channel, Lady C discussed how the brothers’ upbringing has influenced their current alleged feud.
“Harry was deliberately brought up by Diana to regard himself as an equal in every way to William,” she suggested.

“Harry was deliberately brought up by Diana to regard himself as an equal in every way to William,” she suggested. “Even though they both knew William would become King and Harry would not…” “She did this to level the playing field; it was a fatal error.”
“When one child is destined to be King, you do not pretend that the other child, who is not destined to be King, is entitled to аnd equаl to everything thаt the other child who is destined to be King is entitled to.
