William will want solid George, Charlotte and Louis bond after losing Harry as wingman

The fallout between the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex has been documented in extensive detail, ever since Prince Harry told ITV that he and his brother were "on different paths" during his tour of South Africa in 2019.

In the years that have followed, several explosive claims have been made in TV interviews and in Harry's memoir Spare – including an alleged fight at Harry's Nottingham Cottage home and suggestions that William had told his brother that his children were not Harry's "responsibility."

Since Prince William lost his brotherly support in Harry, royal experts have expressed their hope that Prince George will not have the same experience as he grows older and further into his role.

Speaking exclusively to OK!, former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond feels it will be essential for George to have help from his siblings.

And that the trio having a close knit bond is something Prince William will push for, after he lost his own "wingman".

Jennie said: "Hopefully the three of them will remain close for the rest of their lives. I’m sure William feels that even more strongly now that his own relationship with his brother has broken down.

"They are in a unique position as future monarch and senior members of the royal family. We see now how important the Princess Royal is to King Charles."

Jennie continued: "They are close in age, they grew up together within Palace walls, and now Anne is Charles’s confidant, support and friend, as well as sister.

"George, Charlotte and Louis are close in age, go to the same school (for the moment anyway) and are forging bonds that, hopefully, will last a lifetime.

"Somehow, it makes it even sadder that William no longer has Harry as his wingman."

Royal expert Christopher Anderson echoed Jennie, as he is also sure that the younger Wales siblings will take on a more central role in the future King's life.

Speaking to US Weekly, Christopher said: "They [the Palace] have to think about George’s feelings in relation to his siblings. George has all this pressure. He has these two siblings who can help him – who can ease some of the pressure and share some of the burden."

As for what the future has in store for Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, one royal expert imagines that Prince William and Kate will have a plan in mind – and that it could reflect a similar position to that of Princess Anne and Prince Edward.

Royal expert and associate editor at The Telegraph, Camilla Tominey said the couple will want their youngest two children to "have their own careers" if they want to.

With their youngest Prince Louis, Camilla said that they won’t want him to "go down the Duke of York path" and become a "royal hanger-on".

Camilla added: "In the next decade, everything is going to change. "We might be seeing fewer royals in the future than we're used to. A lot of the more minor royals have got careers of their own so they aren't really being taxpayer-funded.

"And in conjunction with the fact there are going to be fewer royals is a recalibration of what it means to be a royal.”
