Prince William is more intelligent than Prince Harry, according to netizens.

Royal fans discussed on online forum Quora whether or not the Duke of Cambridge was more intelligent than the Duke of Sussex. According to several online users who shared their thoughts about the matter, Kate Middleton’s husband appeared to be smarter than Meghan Markle’s spouse.

“He is certainly an intelligent bloke. He recieved[sic] AAC at A level which is highly respectable and also has a 2:1 degree from St Andrews. If that does not place him in the top 20% of the population I do not know what will. This of course does not take into account the fact that he, like all members of the royal family recieves a ridiculously good education that can mimic intelligence,” Alex Palmer commented. “Harry on the other hand only got two A levels which is not usual (I have 4 for example) and even then only got BD, not exactly impressive but I doubt that he is thick.”

Melissa Marshall said that if the question had been asked a few years ago, she would have said “yes.” However, she said that Prince Harry was struggling with mental health issues for years and was not treated for it until recently. She suspected that Prince Harry’s mental health affected his performance in school and was convinced that Prince Harry would have done better academically if he was free from the condition when he was younger. She agreed that Prince William was more academically minded than his younger brother.

Selena Daws, a former teacher, also agreed that the second in line to the throne was more academically inclined than his younger brother. However, she felt that Prince Harry had the intelligence he needed to function as an army officer in the field when he left school. Also, the Duke of Sussex is now getting on with working with his charities.

“Isn’t it obvious? Harry is a dim wit like his mother Diana. Diana said many times ‘I have a brain the size of a pea’ so she knew she was not bright. William is super bright, super nice and a super husband and Dad,” another online user commented.

Many netizens were also convinced that Prince William was more handsome than Prince Harry especially when they were still in the university. However, several are convinced that now that they are grown-ups, Prince Harry looks better.
