Prince Harry is "trapped" in a constant cycle of having to compete with the Royal Family's fame, a historian believes.
The Duke of Sussex, along with wife Meghan Markle, has set up a number of ventures since moving to the US last year.
Most recently, he revealed he was writing a tell-all book about the "highs and lows" of his life so far.
And, while some have feared more royal "truths" will be dropped within the book following the Oprah Winfrey interview, historian Tessa Dunlop has sympathy for the Duke.
Speaking on the Mail’s Palace Confidential podcast, she claimed: “I think he’s trapped in this existential nightmare of having to compete with the Royal Family.”
When questioned on whether Prince Harry could simply retreat from the spotlight, Dr Dunlop said: “I don’t think he knows how to.”
She claimed: “He’s a bit addicted to it. It’s very addictive, fame and fortune. It’s an incredible adrenaline hit. He’s crashing down this ugly cul-de-sac. I worry for him.
“It’s obvious it’s not just about the money, it’s about the buzz. He likes it.”

Harry's memoir, due to be released in 2022, will be ghostwritten by JR Moehringer, who also worked on Andre Agassi’s controversial memoir.
In a statement, the Duke said he is “excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful”.
The announcement has reportedly left some members of the Royal Family sweating about what details might be included.
There are reported concerns that the book could harm Prince Charles’ ascendancy to the throne.
It comes after an expert suggested that Prince William may come out “worst” following Harry’s memoir as it will concern his “future”.
