Royal siblings: Prince William and Prince Harry’s special bond

Prince George can look forward to having a little brother or sister to play with now that the Duchess of Cambridge (née Kate Middleton) is due to give birth to the second royal baby in the weeks to come.

The one-year-old heir to the British throne need look no further than his father and uncle – Prince William and Prince Harry – to understand the importance of sibling love. Best friends from a young age, the princes grew up in the spotlight together and have remained incredibly close since the loss of their mother, Princess Diana.

William and Harry share a special bond.

Although the royal brothers have many things in common – like their love of charity work, competitive sports and careers in the royal air force and navy –they also have distinct personalities that complement one another. Fun-loving Prince Harry has always been the more playful of the two, while William, with his leadership qualities and greater sense of responsibility, has grown into a charismatic family man.

At the Royal Wedding, Prince Harry was Prince William’s best man — a testament to the two brothers' intimate relationship.

Here, as we look forward to welcoming George’s brother or sister, we look back at Harry and William’s special bond through the years.
