Prince William and Kate have just finished a hugely successful tour of Pakistan, while Prince Harry is about to appear in a TV documentary where life in front of the lens seems like agony
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge played a blinder on their tour of Pakistan.
It was a diplomatic triumph and they both looked fabulous in those colourful traditional costumes.
And, at every turn, scores of clicking, flashing cameras captured glorious images of the beaming couple.
But Kate really knocked it out of the park, playing cricket and meeting kids in a cancer hospital.
Because she was treading in Princess Diana’s footsteps at places she visited in the 90s, and she knew wearing a similar shalwar kameez would spark “Di’s Double” headlines.
She must find the endless comparisons awkward as William is reminded of his mum’s untimely death. But the future king and queen know the media comes with the job – helping to sell The Firm and sustain the monarchy’s popularity.
And they know the “press pack” is just a collection of dedicated, professional people. So, when the royal plane was stuck in a nasty thunderstorm over Lahore, William went down the aisle to check they were OK and have a laugh.
What a contrast to his brother Harry, whose obsessive hatred for the press is truly concerning. He and Meghan did a brilliant job on their African tour and highlighted Diana’s unfinished landmine campaign.
I’d even forgotten about that eco-warrior/private jet hypocrisy.
But then Harry accused the press of hounding Meghan, suggesting we will drive her to her death as he wrongly thinks we did Diana.
I know he was only 12 when she died and his grief and rage at her loss are understandable.
