From the day they were born, Prince William and Prince Harry have been the focus of attention in Britain and around the world. Their parents' fairytale wedding, followed swiftly by the arrival of two sons, seemed like the perfect happy ending. Growing up in Highgrove and at Kensington Palace, the two young princes were successfully sheltered from the pressures that drove their parents apart and, ultimately, led to their divorce. Following the tragically early death of their mother, Diana, William and Harry attracted massive public sympathy, a sentiment that still attaches to them to this day. But as well as sympathy, the public now respects them as outgoing, hard-working and competent young men, who have honoured their mother's legacy in their charity work and in their determination to protect her memory. The world has also seen that their relationship with their father is a loving and happy one, and that in this, at least, the Royal family appears to have learnt a lesson from Diana.As they move into their adult roles - whether in the form of official Royal duties or those on the front line, fighting alongside their fellow countrymen - they are both developing into a new breed of Royal, as much at home organising a pop concert or taking a gap year in Africa or South America, as they are at State occasions or in full regimental dress uniform.
