Britain’s Prince William and Harry caused ‘mayhem’ during their childhood
Britain’s Prince William and Harry caused “quite a bit of mayhem and chaos” when they were growing up.
The eldest grandson of Queen Elizabeth, Peter Phillips, has revealed he and his cousins were troublemakers in their childhood.
He said: “We had a lot of fun and there was a lot of space for kids to run around in and it wasn’t just us, it was the Wales’ [William and Harry] Freddie and Ella Windsor and the Gloucesters.
“So there was quite a gang of us growing up in that age and it was a lot of fun. We caused quite a bit of mayhem and chaos but fortunately I don’t think we broke too much.”
The 38-year-old royal admits it was a “little strange” growing up with his grandmother being such a public figure but admitted she has always been and still is a huge “inspiration” in his life.
He added to ITV’s Good Morning Britain: “I guess it’s a little strange but if you’re growing up with that sort of thing, there’s never really that moment when you go, ‘Oh wow’. We had great fun growing up on our holidays, going to stay with her at Sandringham, Balmoral and Windsor and we were incredibly lucky to be able to share a lot of our childhood time with her.
“She’s such an inspiration, not only to the country but to us as a family. You know, her work ethic and her dedication is something that I think the whole family has always inspired to, at least get somewhere near.”
