Prince William ‘shocked’ by Harry car chase and ‘worries about brother’s safety’

Despite their recent rift Prince William was 'shocked' by his younger brother Prince Harry's paparazzi car chase, and apparently still 'worries about his safety'.

Last week a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed they, along with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland, were involved in a "near catastrophic car chase" after they attended an awards ceremony in New York City.

The statement blamed "a ring of highly aggressive" paparazzi. It added: "This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD officers.

Harry and Meghan were attending an awards ceremony and the events unfolded as they left the venue and tried to go back to where they were staying.

The world was shocked by the event, especially given how Harry's mother Princess Diana passed in 1997, and Prince William was reportedly shocked too.

And former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond has questioned how Prince William would have felt and how worried he would have been for his brother's safety.

Jennie exclusively told OK!: "It would have been traumatic for Harry but I do think it's ridiculous for him to get involved in a car chase.

"Do anything at all but do not get involved in a car chase. It's the last thing you should be doing through the streets of any city, especially given what happened to his mother.

"Of course it was very triggering for Harry to to have paparazzi around him and I think it also must have been really shocking to imagine William seeing that news flash come up on his phone about his brother's 'near catastrophic car chase'.

"That must have struck right at William's heart. But as the story has unfolded, it would seem that Harry's own security team acted pretty irrationally at times and contributed to the chaos so I imagine William's thoughts would have turned to 'Well, look, Harry, this is what you've chosen, you want this celebrity lifestyle, you want to go to these glitzy award ceremony so this is what happens."

Jennie continued: "But in the same breath, it must have been upsetting for William because it was his mother too."
