Prince Harry and Prince William seem to take after their mother, Princess Diana. According to a former courtier, who spilled some secrets to Robert Jobson for his new book, the brothers "both have quite extreme mood swings, just as Diana did. She could be your best friend one minute and the next your worst enemy."
Jobson also spoke about Prince William's temper.
"He can be a bit of a shouter when he loses it. It’s fair to say the Duke and the Duchess give as good as they get if their disagreement results in raised voices," the author wrote. "But they know each other so well, it usually blows over quickly – and she is, on the whole, a major calming influence on him."
Though the 39-year-old can get into tiffs with his wife, Kate Middleton, it seems like they are mostly on the same page.
"They’ve got a solid relationship and she gives him confidence," Jobson noted. "There is no jealousy, no friction – they are happy for each other’s successes."
This isn't the first time William's anger has made headlines. Apparently, he can snap when he's at work, too. “I’ve seen a lot of staff come and go in my years covering the royal family and William is known to be a great boss," author Duncan Larcombe said. “He makes sure his staff are seen as much as possible as colleagues rather than employees. He’s very modern.”
However, "he does have a short fuse," he shared. “We don’t see it much and we certainly haven’t seen it publicly in the way we have with Charles, Philip or Harry, all of whom have shown their anger. It’s rare but when something goes wrong, William can lose his temper and give the people who work for him a dressing down."
