The Duke of Cambridge, who is second in line to the throne, has reportedly “always known what is expected of him”. A source said: “William was educated from the very earliest age about the crucial role he would play within the monarchy.
“He’s always known what is expected of him when he’s eventually crowned King.”
The source added that William has dealt with the spotlight that comes with being a royal better than his younger brother Prince Harry.
The insider said: “He found the publicity difficult to deal with when he was younger, but it definitely had more of a negative impact on Harry.
“William accepts that it’s part of the job and he’s fine with it.”
But William still has “moments of self-doubt”, according to the source.
The insider told Us Weekly: “He’s human and of course he has moments of self-doubt.
“And he has times where he and Kate want to drop out of sight so they’ll escape to Cornwall and recharge their batteries.”
Harry quit royal duties with Meghan Markle last year and the couple are now starting new lives in America.
