‘Different personalities' Prince Harry is free to express his emotions says Omid Scobie


Reflecting on the differences between the brothers’ messages, Omid Scobie noted Prince Harry has more freedom to express himself since stepping back as a senior royal. Harry spoke of his grandfather’s “banter” describing him as a “master of the barbecue” while Prince William referenced Prince Philip’s “service” to the Queen and Commonwealth.

“This was really showing the different personalities of Harry and William,” Omid began, speaking on Good Morning Britain.

“Of course, William is the future King, it came from a much more formal place.

“Harry I think in his new role as a non-working royal had the freedom to be a bit more informal with his words.

“But I think what both together gave was a really balanced overview of their relationship with their grandfather, which was not only filled with respect, of course inspiration.

“Harry that inspiration with Philip, both serving military men.

“With William also looking up to the Duke as a future head of state.

“I think this really showed the two brothers and how they’ve both been inspired by Philip over the years but also how normal a family they are behind the scenes.”

In a statement released on Monday, Prince Harry said: “He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm – and also because you never knew what he might say next.

“He will be remembered as the longest reigning consort to the monarch, a decorated serviceman, a prince and a duke.

“But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ’til the end.”

“While I could go on, I know that right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, ‘Oh do get on with it!’

“So, on that note, Grandpa, thank you for your service, your dedication to Granny, and for always being yourself.”

Harry signed off with “Per Mare, Per Terram,”which means “By Sea, By Land” in Latin and is a motto for the Royal Marines.

Meanwhile, Prince William shared: “My grandfather’s century of life was defined by service – to his country and Commonwealth, to his wife and Queen, and to our family.

“I feel lucky to have not just had his example to guide me, but his enduring presence well into my own adult life – both through good times and the hardest days.

“I will always be grateful that my wife had so many years to get to know my grandfather and for the kindness he showed her.

“I will never take for granted the special memories my children will always have of their great-grandpa coming to collect them in his carriage and seeing for themselves his infectious sense of adventure as well as his mischievous sense of humour!”

With William referencing “service,” Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway questioned if it was a “dig” at Harry.

She noted: “There might be a bit of a dig potentially at his brother for seeming to have taken a step back?”

“I think for us on the outside it might look like that,” Omid replied. “But we have to remember that is William’s role.

“He is the future head of state so he really is thinking about getting back to work.”

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am.
