Prince William & Prince Harry Draw Comparisons With Their Major Roles In Very Different Charity Awards

They have been unable to avoid parallels to their late mother, Princess Diana, and father, King Charles III, ever since Prince William and Prince Harry first came to prominence. The brothers have found solace in the knowledge that, despite spending their whole lives in the spotlight, they had a lot of similar experiences. They became close as a result of this, especially as children.

Many claim that the two are growing apart as they get older and raise their own families, especially once Harry leaves the royal family in 2020. The two, along with their respective families, have once again become the subject of tabloid comparisons and criticism in the wake of the death of their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and the promotion of William to Prince of Wales and the very next in line to the throne.

Harry and William had hardly ever been spotted together before the queen passed away since the younger brother had emigrated to America with his wife and their small children. The brothers seemed to further distance themselves after their now-famous interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which the Sussexes spoke candidly about how they felt they were treated unfairly by the royal family, the media, and the public.

The way their father treats them is another distinction between the boys. The relationship between Charles and Harry has had its share of ups and downs, and now that Charles is king, the father and son will have to think more carefully about it. Contrastingly, Prince William is frequently involved in Charles’ activities, including preparations for his coronation and official royal family pictures.

Comparisons to Harry and Meghan Sussex are once again prominent now that the Prince and Princess of Wales are back in the country where they were born.
While Prince Harry was born on September 15, 1984, Prince William was born on June 21, 1982. Diana, Princess of Wales, King Charles III’s first wife, was their mother. Diana, often known as the “People’s Princess,” was adored by many as both a person and a mother.

Princess Diana loved her two children passionately and was a devoted mother to them. Diana was admired for her warmth, charm, activism, and charitable work during the time when she was a prominent member of the royal family thanks to her marriage to King Charles III.

The British royal family places a strong emphasis on charitable activity, with its members playing a variety of roles in support of various causes for the benefit of the populace. William and Harry have each founded a number of non-profit organizations, occasions, and awards for causes important to their hearts. Harry’s Invictus Games, a sporting occasion for injured service members, is among the most well-known. Harry claims that the competitions “focus on what they can accomplish post-injury and celebrate their tenacity via an inclusive athletic event that acknowledges the sacrifice they have made.”

William’s development of the Earthshot Prize, which he co-founded with famous environmentalist David Attenborough, is one of his most praiseworthy works. Contributors get a grant of £1 million (about $1.2 million) for each of the five areas they choose to support: ocean resurrection, air purity, waste-free living, climate action, and restoration and conservation of wildlife. In William’s words, “we need everyone – from all areas of society – to elevate their ambition and unite in healing our world,” the prize sought to “transform the present pessimism around environmental concerns into hope by honouring the individuals and places driving change.”
Prince William and his wife Kate traveled to Boston, Massachusetts, in December 2022 to give the Earthshot Prize Awards. Prior to the event, the two went on a tour of the area, spoke with marginalized populations, and met with scientists and IT entrepreneurs. The royal couple attended the celebration at the MGM Music Hall on December 4, 2022, to award the prizes to the five winners.

In an odd turn of events, the Sussexes are scheduled to arrive in New York City on December 6, 2022, to collect the Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award, just as the Prince and Princess of Wales were in Boston to give awards. Through their Archewell Foundation, they are honored for their contributions to racial justice and mental health. The pair, in Kerry Kennedy’s opinion, shown “moral fortitude” in the face of systematic bigotry.

According to People, Kerry told the Spanish magazine Vanitatis that “(Harry and Meghan) went to the oldest institution in U.K. history and told them what they were doing wrong, that they couldn’t have structural racism within the institution, and that they couldn’t maintain a misunderstanding about mental health.” Added her:

They were aware that doing this would have negative effects, including exclusion, loss of family and status within the system, as well as blame placed on them. They have nonetheless done it because they felt that if they didn’t challenge this power, they wouldn’t be able to live with themselves. They have shown courage in doing this, in my opinion.

Additionally by coincidence, on December 2, 2022, Kerry’s cousin Caroline Kennedy accompanied the Waleses on a visit of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Library and Museum.

Although there are many differences between the royal brothers, their shared commitment to fighting for issues they firmly believe in will always serve as a unifying factor.
