Prince Harry said Kate Middleton was ‘like a sister’ in moving confession

They now live thousands of miles apart and it seems Prince Harry 's relationship with his older sibling Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton is not what it used to be.

It has been reported that the two royal brothers have grown apart, particularly following Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018.

But before Prince Harry wed and moved to California, he was once very close to his 38-year-old brother and his sister-in-law Kate, also 38.

In fact, Prince Harry made a heartbreaking confession about his relationship with mother-of-three Kate in a throwback interview over 10 years ago.

In 2010, after William proposed to Kate, Harry told the German newspaper Bild that he was "absolutely delighted" his older brother had "finally popped the question".

He even claimed Kate was like a “sister” to him, telling the newspaper he was glad Kate was joining the Royal Family.

He said: "I’ve always wanted a sister and now I’ve got one. I’ve known Kate for years, and it’s fantastic that she is becoming part of the family."

The prince, who is now a father himself to his son Archie, had opened up about his relationship with Kate ahead of a trip to Berlin, where he received an award recognising his charity work on German television.

He was presented with a Golden Heart during Ein Herz fur Kinder ‒ A Heart for Children ‒ German’s largest television fundraising gala.

William and Kate went on to marry in April 2011 and Harry took on the role of best man at the royal occasion.

During this time, the three of them spent a lot of time together and in the early years of William and Kate’s marriage, Harry even took part in projects alongside them.

The most memorable was the 2016 Heads Together campaign, which encouraged people to open up about their mental health struggles.

That same year, Prince Harry began his romance with US actress Meghan and the couple married at Windsor Castle in May 2018 – becoming the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

But in January 2020, the Duke and Duchess announced that they were stepping back from their role as senior members of the royal family, and would balance their time between the UK and North America.

Harry opened up to ITV’s Tom Bradby during the 2019 documentary ‘Harry & Meghan: An African Journey’ about his relationship with his brother now.

He revealed: "Part of this role and part of this job and this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, inevitably stuff happens.

"But we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers ‒ we’re certainly on different paths at the moment, but I will always be there for him and I know he’ll always be there for me.

“We don't see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy. But I love him dearly and the majority of stuff is created out of nothing.

"As brothers, you have good days, you have bad days," Harry added.
