This program is read by the author. In this insightful biography, Sunday Times columnist Danny Danziger brings to life the special bond between the world’s two most famous siblings—Their Royal Highnesses William and Harry. The royal princes William and Harry come from a family where fraternal relationships have often been hostile—at best. King John paid money to have his older brother Richard the Lionheart unlawfully imprisoned. Richard II murdered Henry IV. King George VI permanently cut off communication with his brother, the Duke of Windsor, after he insisted on marrying divorcee Mrs. Simpson. Prince Charles is currently on frosty terms with his younger brothers, Andrew and Edward. So, historically and genetically it is extraordinary that these two brothers, just two years and two months apart, and temperamentally so dissimilar, should love each other with such depth. Since birth, William and Harry have been in lockstep, drawn together by their birthright and the unique and tragic circumstances of their childhood. They are, however, not just the living legacy of their beautiful, troubled mother, Princess Diana, nor, by dint of birth, simply successors to a long-lasting dynasty. They are strong individuals in their own right and have made the British royals once again an object of universal fascination. William & Harry focuses on this intriguing fraternal relationship—the older brother, happily married and father of three, who is destined to be king, and the irrepressible younger brother who, not long ago, was a carefree bachelor with a penchant for hijinks, and is now married to Meghan Markle, a woman who defies royal expectations.
