Prince William is adamant to not lose his identity as he takes on his royal role and prepares to take on the throne after his father King Charles.

The Prince of Wales is determined that none of his decisions are undermined or influenced by the people around him.

He once told his Personal assistant Peter Archer that while he doesn’t “go around and expect everyone to listen to [him] the whole time, but [he] like[s] to be in control of [his] life.”

“Because I have so many people around me, I can get pulled in one direction and then the other,” William explained in a resurfaced interview for his 21st birthday when he was still studying at St Andrews University, in Scotland.

“If I don’t have any say in it, then I end up just losing complete control and I don’t like the idea of that. I could actually lose my identity,” he continued. “You have to be slightly stubborn because in my position everybody wants you, for one reason or another.”

Prince Harry’s estranged brother was of the view that “if you don’t stick to your guns and stick to your decision, then you lose control.”

Archer said of the young future King that he is “an unassuming young man; his firm handshake, welcoming smile and boyish charm were a winning combination.”

Prince William also seems to have an influence on his father King Charles amid his alleged ‘peace talks’ with Harry. He reportedly did not allow the talks to continue which were meant to take place in September.

Previously, royal sources told The Sunday Times that Harry could be lent an apartment at Kensington Palace, where William and Kate have a home and private office.

However, the future King is unwilling to spare a room for his younger brother and Charles cannot convince him otherwise.
