Prince Harry claims he played second fiddle to William in bombshell new book

Due out next week, Prince Harry's tell-all memoir Spare is set to blow open his rivalry with older brother and heir to the throne, Prince William.

Since stepping down from his royal duties three years ago and emigrating to California with wife Meghan Markle, the 38 year old has barely spoken to William, 40, with one of their few known encounters descending into 'shouting' in front of King Charles III and the late Queen Elizabeth.

Revealing how the pair's relationship will be documented throughout Spare, a source now tells The Sun: "At the heart of this book lies a sibling rivalry between little brother and big brother. It will reveal Harry's bitterness and feelings of unfairness that by the nature of hierarchy and birthright that he always played second fiddle to older William.

"The falling out is to be covered in the book in detail and what aggravates is it's not an outsider revealing these private moments — it's Harry giving his one-sided account of family affairs.

"Their mother [Princess] Diana always warned them they must never fall out because they would need one another. It is very sad it’s reached this stage."

It's also been noted that Charles's wife, Queen Consort Camilla, was out of bounds in the book – a "red line" if you will.

If Harry does indeed trash her – Camilla, 75, had an affair with the King whilst he was still married to the late Diana – then his 74 year old father may completely pull the plug on their already fractured relationship.

In other news, royal correspondent Jennie Bond exclusively told OK! that the very title of Harry's autobiography would've been an insult to The Firm.

"I think Harry’s book will be more controversial than the Netflix docuseries because the title is searingly honest," she forecasted.

"I imagine the royals were a bit sad when they heard the name. It’s sad that that's how he has felt all his life. It’s sad, but what can they do about it? It's the way the Royal family works, but it's also a way quite a lot of families work quite a lot, such as the farming community.

"In life, it's not as if he didn't have a role.

"It's just he wasn’t going to be King and I’m not sure he wanted to be that. But clearly he is a wounded man. And he's going to explain the state of his mental health and how he feels his life has gone.

"I think it will also show that he's found peace now, which is great. People still have great affection for Harry. He was always favourite amongst the public and hopefully he will regain that popularity," added Jennie, 72.
