Prince William was a helicopter pilot for the Royal Air Force and flew air ambulances for the East Anglian Air Ambulance service, whereas Harry served in the Army for ten years.

Despite the two reportedly seeing a strain in their relationship of late, they put on a united front at the unveiling of a statue of their mother.

When William becomes king, his title will once again change, however, it is not yet known by which name he’ll go by as monarchs can often choose a different name to rule under.

When Harry married Meghan Markle in 2018, his title changed to His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex.

He also inherited additional regional titles: Earl of Dumbarton for Scotland and Baron Kilkeel for Northern Ireland.

The dynamics of the brothers will be explored in a documentary airing on ITV tonight.
