Ever since he walked away from being a full-time member of the royal family, Prince Harry has been a private citizen based in the US, taking part in high-profile media appearances. Meanwhile, Prince William has assumed a much higher profile within ‘the firm’ as the future King of the United Kingdom. The media has always focused on the differences between the two brothers – the way they look, the way they behave, their wives, their relationship with the Queen and their reputation in the UK. Harry embodies royalty as a celebrity: forging partnerships with Netflix and Spotify to promote his advocacy and charitable work. William represents duty: attempting to modernise the monarchy (with his father, the Prince of Wales) while preserving the core identity, role and responsibilities of the Royal Family.
As the country starts to consider what the future holds for the monarchy, join us for this ThinkIn where we’ll ask, William or Harry: who’s winning and does it matter?
