"Africa was his thing, he said," Prince Harry claimed in his memoir, Entertainment Tonight reported. "And he had the right to say this, or felt he did, because he was the Heir."

He added that the future king would even flex his veto power over him.

"It was ever in his power to veto my thing, and he had every intention of exercising, even flexing, that veto power. We had some real rows about it... It was so obvious. He cared less about finding his purpose or passion than about winning his lifelong competition with me."

"I couldn't make sense of it," Harry told Cooper. "I was like, 'What do you mean? We're now at the same school. Like, I haven't seen you for ages, now we get to hang out together.' He's like, 'No, no, no, when we're at school we don't know each other.' And I took that personally."
