In his bombshell memoir, ‘Spare,’ Prince Harry revealed that his brother cautioned him against proposing too quickly, fearing their relationship was moving too fast.

Jennie Bond, a former BBC royal correspondent, told The Sun, acknowledging William's advice as well-intentioned: “He was correct to guide or warn Harry 'are you sure you're not going a bit fast'. I think it came from a good place.”

Bond points out that all of the “long” marriages within the Royal Family to date were “survived” by a long two courtship, for instance the marriage between Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, and Prince Edward and “that is one of the most delightfully happy marriages in the Royal Family.”

Bond commented further during the Sun's Royal Exclusive show, Comparing Harry and Meghan's rapid courtship to the more gradual romance of Prince William and Kate. “Kate was given ten years to peer into the goldfish bowl of royal life,” she observed.

Their wedding, a lavish affair at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, was followed by a reception hosted by William at Frogmore House.

In his memoir, Harry disclosed that the wedding arrangements strained his relationship with his brother.
