Prince Harry, Kate Middleton and Prince William may have already been seen as a formidable trio by members of the public.
However, the royal father-of-two has now exposed in excruciating detail the reality of their relationship in his new book Spare.
In the early years of his brother’s relationship with Kate, he references his fear that she would “take Willy away” while he also reveals he had no idea his brother was engaged until it is announced publicly.
Meanwhile, he shares his sadness at not being invited to dinner with the Cambridges despite living opposite them at Kensington Palace.

Kate started dating William in 2003, after meeting him at the University of St Andrews. Shortly after, she met Harry.
Harry has now revealed how much he fears the princess will take his brother away from him.
He detailed how he “comforted” with the thought of the fun they would all enjoy together in the future.
However, he claims he was stunned when in November 2010 he learned his brother had proposed to Kate.

Meanwhile, he claimed he had “never” been invited to dinner with the Prince and Princess while living at Kensington Palace opposite them.
He said he only learned of the engagement when it was announced to the public.
Meanwhile, he added that he never gave William their mother’s engagement ring to give to Kate.
Instead, he claimed the Duke requested the ring after his death and has kept it ever since.
After their engagement, he said he thought about his own celibacy and his desire to settle down only grew stronger.
He claimed William broke a tradition that they had to spend the night together before their weddings
He confessed that he always thought he would be the first to get married.
After the wedding, Harry claims that William and Kate were given more staff, more cars, a bigger residence and a bigger office.
While he says he “didn’t care” about benefits, he said “respect” matters to him.
He claimed he felt like a stranger and an “unperson” because he was an unredeemed celibate.
His move to Nottingham Cottage was in 2013 and he said he was delighted to live across from William and Kate.
However, he claimed that despite being “half a football pitch away”, he was never invited to the Cambridge home of Kensington Palace.
Although he “assumed” he would get an invite, he said he was disappointed and thought they thought “three is a crowd”.
Elsewhere, Harry detailed telling Kate and Will of the excitement over Meghan and saying it had been his “long dream” to become “a foursome”.
However, he claims William told him ‘it might not happen’ and that he ‘should settle down’.
When the two decided to get married, Harry claims William told him on the eve of their wedding that he was spending the evening with Kate and their children.
The Duke writes that it was a tricky time as it was their “tradition” and which William “cancelled at the last minute”.
Earlier today, ‘human hand grenade’ Prince Harry was accused of trying to blow up his father’s reign with his book as he stepped up his verbal attacks on his brother.
The Duke of Sussex described William’s ‘red haze’ in a fight with Meghan before admitting he had taken cannabis, magic mushrooms and cocaine in another clip from his ITV interview, released on Sunday.
Harry also insisted to presenter Tom Bradby that he wants reconciliation with his loved ones, even though his memoir hurt the king and plunged the royal family into their worst crisis since his mother’s death in 1997.

Although he appears to have a close bond in public, Prince Harry has admitted he fears Kate will take William away from him.
And in a separate teaser released by Good Morning America last night, he admitted the split with William would make their late mother “sad”.
Former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown, biographer of Princess Diana, said today: ‘Harry has turned into a human hand grenade. his father”.
Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace declined to comment on anything Harry said on TV or in his book. But an insider told The Times: ‘It’s exhausting, it’s infuriating, but it’s not distracting. He will run out.
