Prince Harry has always been jealous of Prince William and broke away in an attempt to prove that, according to a royal expert.
Angela Levin, a royal biographer, said that the Sussexes have not shown as much concern for privacy in recent public appearances.
Levin told The Sun: “Harry has always been jealous of William and he wants to prove he’s better, stronger, and he believed he could only do that by breaking away.”
Harry and Meghan on Thursday made their first public appearance together since the birth of their daughter, meeting with New York City mayor Bill de Blasio.
They visited a 9/11 memorial during their New York trip, which was compared by some to Princess Diana’s landmark visit to the Big Apple in 1989.
Even Lady Spencer’s favorite hotel was where the Sussexes stayed.
A recent YouGov poll showed that the popularity of the Sussexes has dropped, but their inclusion on TIME magazine’s list of 100 most influential people reassured their fans.

Another royal author, Robert Jobson, said William has caused “deep wounds” in his relationship with Harry.
He told podcast Royally Us: “There’s a lot of things, I think also Harry felt he was not happy with the lack of support over his marriage to Meghan.
“But at the end of the day, they were very close as young men, let’s hope that over time, wounds can heal, but I do think these are quite deep wounds.”
