Prince William has made it clear that his children are not Harry's responsibility.

Prince Harry has expressed concerns about the future of the royal family’s other ‘spares’ to his brother – who has ‘made it quite clear that children are not his responsibility’.

The Duke of Sussex has spoken candidly about his concerns for Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis in an interview with The Telegraph, noting that he hopes his efforts to highlight his own pain will pay dividends for the next generation.

“Although William and I have talked about this once or twice, and he has made it very clear to me that his children are not my responsibility, I still feel a responsibility,” he said.

‘Of these three children, at least one will end up like me, the spare one. And it hurts, it worries me.

William’s eldest son, Prince George, is second in line to the throne behind his father, while younger siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are third and fourth.

The Duke also spoke of his own children, saying he would not allow Archie, his eldest son, to go through the same ‘traumatic’ experience as he and his brother.

In fact, he hopes to be a cycle breaker. While he admits his family probably isn’t too pleased with him right now, in the wake of his bombshell memoirs and television rounds, he hopes that one day they’ll see the benefit of his decision to speak out.

Harry has revealed a number of private matters in recent weeks – from his own experience with illicit substances to his difficult mental health battle following the death of his mother and his two trips to Afghanistan.

He detailed plans to disrupt the relationship between the royal family and the press, expressing his belief that by doing so he could protect future divisions in the family.

Even with all he’s willing to discuss – the good, the bad and the ugly – there are subjects he chose to leave out of the memoir.

So much was left on the editing room floor that Harry says an entire second memoir could be filled in, which could come in handy given the £16 million four-book deal he and Meghan signed with Penguin Random House .

The news that there is enough content for a second book will no doubt set off alarm bells in the royal fold following the recent onslaught of slander.

Harry knew that including any details about intimate moments with his family would attract a backlash, but he finally decided that he couldn’t truthfully tell his story without them.

But he said: ‘There are some things that have happened, especially between me and my brother, and to some extent between me and my dad, that I just don’t want the world to know about. Because I don’t think they would ever forgive me.

Once the dust settled, he expressed hope that he and Meghan can reconnect with their family – even if they don’t particularly like his decision to share ‘their truth’.

In his Spare memoir and in several interviews to promote it, Harry made broad and damaging accusations against his next of kin.

It’s been a week since Harry’s biography hit the world’s headlines, and this is the sixth interview he’s given to boost sales of the book, which publisher Penguin Random House says is already a record-breaker.

Harry has openly spoken about using ayahuasca, a psychedelic, with a professional while seeking therapy for his mental health issues.

While William was the first person to encourage Harry to try therapy, he says that after looking into the alternative treatment, he realized there was just a bigger divide with his brother on the other side.

He hopes that one day the heir will also embrace therapy after the traumatic experiences they shared in childhood.

Ayahuasca – a South American herbal drug that is usually brewed into a tea – is made from the leaves of the Psychotria viridis shrub together with the stems of the Banisteriopsis caapi vine.

William's eldest son, Prince George of Wales, is second in line to the throne, with his younger siblings Princess Charlotte of Wales third and Prince Louis fourth.

“The main ingredients in ayahuasca – Banisteriopsis caapi and Psychotria viridis – both have hallucinogenic properties,” says Healthline.

‘When combined, these two plants form a powerful psychedelic brew that affects the central nervous system, leading to an altered state of consciousness that can include hallucinations, out-of-body experiences and euphoria.’

In Spare, Harry revealed that William believes all of his therapy has left him delusional and questioned whether he was being ‘brainwashed’ by the therapist he was seeing.

Elsewhere in his interview with The Telegraph, Harry expanded on his reason for speaking out.

He said: ‘It’s not about trying to overthrow the monarchy, it’s about trying to save them from themselves. And I know I will be crucified by many people for saying that.’

Harry also suggested that reform was needed in the royal family.

‘If only 10 percent of the scrutiny was placed on me and M was placed on this institution, we wouldn’t be in this mess right now,’ he said in a damning comment.

‘It’s so dirty. It’s so dark. And it will go on and on and on and I look forward to the day when we are no longer a part of it, but I worry about who will be next,” he added.
