News Flash To Prince Harry: Most families worldwide have more than one child. This planet is populated with several billion Spares. Those Spares usually grow up loving their older brother or sister. They seldom regard themselves as leftover placenta, oozing slowly down the drain, without a present or future, and envious of their eight-year-old nephew.
This royal Spare seems to believe he is somehow a second-class citizen. Welcome to the world of women.
However, this royal Spare can still play polo anytime the call comes and has a team of cooks, dressers, secretaries, chauffeurs, maids, tailors, and everything else.
However, women in the United States are legally forced to give birth to a rapist's child, so stop your bellyaching.

Even Prince Philip, your grandpa, was a spare of sorts, four times removed. Prince Philip had four older sisters. How's that for being a leftover? Still, Prince Philip finished at the top of the drain! No gee-whiz about his position on the family tree. Prince Philip captured the Queen's heart.
The Spare complains about his cushy life, describing it as meaningless and without hope. As though he is doomed to dig for blood diamonds in Angola once his nephew Prince George turns 18 years old.

He could even begin The Royal Taxi Service.
