Prince Harry may have given up his spot in the royal family, but author Angela Levin believes he's trying to prove that he can take on royal-like duties "in a very different way, a Californian way."
"I think it's because he's fed up with being the spare to the heir and he wants to be strong and powerful so he's making these demands, small and not so small, and he's going to build up his capacity to do that I fear," the author explained. "He's competing with his brother and his father to be the better royal and more like Diana."
Since moving to America last year with wife Meghan Markle, the father-of-two has continued to work with his many charities, something that took up the majority of his time while with the royal family.
In fact, when he returned to the U.K. last week to help unveil a statue of Princess Diana, he also stopped by the WellChild Awards, one of his patronages.
"The Duke of Sussex met each winner in turn to congratulate them as they received their Award," the organization stated. "The Duke then had an informal chat with all the winners where he heard how the last 18 months had been for them and their families and how they had received support from WellChild and from each other through the WellChild Family Tree community."
While at the event, Harry gave a touching speech.
"Since becoming patron of WellChild in 2007, this organisation and the people within it have held an extraordinarily special place in my heart. I wasn't a father at the time, and yet the stories of these children and parents transcended that," he stated. "I didn't need to be a dad to feel the impact of this invaluable work. Now as a father of two, I feel all the more connected, inspired and in awe of the resilience of these families, who power through indescribable challenges with the support of WellChild."
"The health of our children, of all of us, could not have been more on the forefront of our minds during the past year. And, throughout this time, the WellChild community has set an example for how to show up and act with compassion for each other," Harry continued. "I could not be prouder to be here, to meet this year's WellChild Award winners, to thank the nurses and doctors for all they do, and to celebrate these amazing families."
