Prince William and his brother Harry have been arguing for years. And all the while, the finger was being pointed at Meghan Markle. But the fork seems to be in a slightly different position. Because the origin of their quarrel apparently lies in Africa.

According to the British newspaper The Times the much-publicized row between Harry and William is said to be the result of “a difference of opinion” in nature conservation projects. They both have initiatives regarding the conservation of animal species in Africa and are said to have regularly clashed over this, the newspaper writes.
“William believed that the focus should be on programs initiated and managed by the people themselves.” Harry, on the other hand, was more interventionist, an insider knows. “He felt a more hands-on approach was needed to protect wildlife habitats.”

Rhinos and elephants
In his much-discussed book Spare, Harry also mentions the Africa conflict with William. Harry describes in his memoirs how he wanted to make charity work in Africa an important part of his royal life, but was prevented from doing so by his own brother.
“There was one small problem: Willy,” Harry writes. “Africa was his thing,” he said. And he had the right to say this, because he is the heir. (…) When someone asked us why we couldn’t both work on Africa, William said: ‘Because the rhinos and elephants are mine!’ It was so transparent. He values winning his lifelong competition with me more than finding his own purpose or passion.”
