Paul Burrell, who worked serving Princess Diana from 1987 until her death in 1997, shared an insight into, Prince Harry and Prince William's childhoods living at Kensington Palace.
Speaking to The Sun, he alleged that he watched on as Prince Harry questioned why Prince William was given more sausages than him at breakfast.
Paul claims that Prince Harry would ask, "How come he gets three?" when Prince William was served one more sausage than him on his breakfast plate.
"When I look back now, I think maybe I was glimpsing the dynamic at play," Paul explained
"One time I saw the nanny give William three sausages at breakfast and Harry had two."
Paul went on to recall that the boys' nanny replied, "William needs filling up more than you. He’s going to be king one day."
"Harry would fall quiet and suck it up, but that’s what he had to contend with, even in his own home," Paul continued, detailing young Harry's dismay.
In his Spare memoir, Prince Harry shared details of an alleged physical altercation between him and Prince William, that is said to have occurred during the time he and Meghan Markle were living at Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace.
After claiming that Prince William had dubbed Meghan "rude", "difficult" and "abrasive", Harry wrote of how his brother knocked him to the ground in the kitchen of the cottage, shattering a dog bowl when he landed.
"It all happened so fast. So very fast. He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor.
"I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out," the tell-all book reads.
The Palace have not responded to any claims made in Prince Harry's Spare memoir.
