Palace officials allegedly treated Prince William and Prince Harry differently because one is the heir to the British throne and the other is the "spare," a royal expery said.

Kinsey Schofield, host of the "To Di For" podcast and author of "R is for Revenge Dress," discussed in an interview with Fox News Digital the alleged disparate treatment that King Charles' two sons received.

She claimed that the palace prioritized protecting Prince William's reputation over Prince Harry's. However, the information has yet to be independently verified.

"I've been told that ever since Harry was a teenager, the palace prioritized Prince William's reputation over Prince Harry's," Schofield claimed without naming her source.

"For instance, there's a story about a paper calling the palace communications team for comment on a negative William story. The palace's strategy was to offer up a negative Harry story to kill the William story from running," added Schofield.

She further pointed out, "I don't know how often this strategy was utilized, but I have heard from a former employee that this happened. Of course, the palace [will] do everything it can to protect the heir."

Although the purported tactic "seems harsh," the royal expert continued, it nevertheless makes "common sense."

She emphasized that Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, and Prince William "are the future and the priority."

Prince Harry is fifth in line to the throne after his older brother, his nephews Prince George, 9, and Prince Louis, as well as his niece Princess Charlotte, 7.

According to Schofield, Prince Harry and palace employees allegedly engaged in "clashes" due to the alleged disparity in how the brothers were treated inside the monarchy.

The disagreement is said to have arisen because Prince Harry "wanting to pursue the same campaigns that Prince William was passionate about," but the older royal was always "given priority." according to the royal expert.

Similar remarks about the brothers were made by royal biographer Tina Brown in an April interview with Marie Claire while promoting her most recent book, "The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor—The Truth and the Turmoil."

She asserted that because the brothers had comparable interests, Prince William and Prince Harry's relationship grew "rivalrous."

"A lot of his interests were quite similar to William's—environmentalism, conservation, Africa, all of these things Harry was interested in, too. It began to feel like, 'Why is William getting all of these great portfolios and I have to sort of wait and take his second dibs?'" the royal author told the outlet.

"Well, the answer is because you're the second in line. William was always going to be able to choose what he wants to do. So that was always going to be a bit tricky."
