Princess Diana's former bodyguard recalled how he had overheard a young Prince Harry saying something very interesting to his older brother Prince William, especially in light of Harry's situation today. 

Harry reportedly told William that he could do what he wanted because he would never be king. A long-serving protection officer of the royals, Ken Wharfe recalled the incident that took place while the family was traveling from London to Gloucester during a weekend around thirty years ago. 

Wharfe shared that Prince Harry and William were having an intense argument in the car. As reported by LBC, Wharfe shared, "I had the privilege of working with his mother, William and Harry and many other members of the Royal family. I remember a moment of Harry as a four-year-old, traveling down to Gloucester one weekend. He and his brother had an argument in the back seat of the car being refereed by the nanny."

"And in the end, Harry said: 'You'll be king one day, I won't. Therefore I can do what I want! Diana said 'Where the hell did he get that from?" he recalled. Harry's comment hints at just how complex the relationship between the two brothers has been and the strained state it is in currently. 

"You have to remember he's one of the most popular members of the Royal family and we watched and witnessed the wedding in Windsor and everyone said it was the future of the monarchy. And suddenly it seems to be falling apart," Wharfe added. Wharfe had been a bodyguard to Prince William and Prince Harry in 1986. 

He had been Princess Diana's personal protection officer in 1988, an arrangement that lasted until 1993. As reported by the Telegraph, in 1997, he had overseen the security at Diana's funeral and in the following year was made a member of the prestigious Victoria Order for his services to the Queen.
