Prince William's Earthshot initiative has made him popular in the United States.

According to YouGov polls, William is the second most loved member of the royal family, while Kate Middleton is the first. Editor Daisy Prince claimed the future king is seen as a "hero" in the U.S. due to his commitment to conservation.

Prince pointed out that "eco stuff is huge" with Gen-Z audiences, and she believes the royal will receive a "tremendously warm" welcome because adolescents "really care about it, so the fact he’s spearheading that is great."

"I think there’s respect for somebody who’s not always speaking out and is getting on with the job, and solidarity with William for putting one foot in front of the other," she added.

Although William is scheduled to travel to the Big Apple, his arrival could hurt Harry's image in California. The Duke of Sussex notably called William his "beloved brother and archnemesis" in his memoir, Spare.

"There has always been this competition between us, weirdly," the veteran confessed.

Harry's scathing book created long-lasting damage to his relationship with William. OK! previously reported the former Duke of Cambridge wasn't ready to spend time with Harry during his American tour or when Harry was in the U.K. for the WellChild Awards.

"My royal sources say that any chance of a reconciliation really isn't ruled out, but it's certainly not going to happen anytime soon," Katie Nicholl told an outlet. "Prince William is still incredibly upset with Harry's autobiography, which, of course, really cast William in a pretty bad light."

"No one's going to forget anytime soon the stories of them coming to physical blows, and William allegedly shoving Prince Harry, forcing him onto the ground where he landed onto a dog bowl," the biographer added.

Despite William being perceived as a powerful leader, Spare depicted him as ill-tempered and violent.

"I'm told by several sources close to the Prince of Wales that William really just cannot find it in his heart at the moment to forgive his brother for what he's done," she shared. "I think Kate, Princess of Wales, she's always always had a very close relationship with Prince Harry, but she's been left quite devastated by some of the anecdotes that Harry told in Spare that didn't cast her in a particularly good light."

"I think there's a great sense of betrayal," she added."Any chance the brothers seeing each other, I'm told, is simply not on the cards."

Prince wrote for The Express.
