London, Sep 5 (ANI): Prince William is apparently angry with ex Britain PM Tony Blair for mentioning their private conversations in his autobiography.

In the book, Blair claims William opened his heart to him in a series of conversations after Princess Diana's death.

His autobiography 'A Journey' says the Prince hated the "prison walls" of his destiny, reports the Daily Star.

Blair writes in his book: "He knew now, if he didn't before, what being a prince and a king meant. For all the sense of duty, the prison walls of hereditary tradition must have seemed too high a price to pay."

Blair, who became close to the Prince during a stay at the Queen's Scottish home Balmoral, goes on to say that William was angry at being made to play a public role while he was grieving for his mum.

"I had also spoken to William who was not only still grieving but angry. He knew, rationally, why the week between Diana's death and the funeral had to be as it had been," he said.

"But he felt acutely the conflict between public position and private emotion," he added.

The revelations have annoyed William and those closest to him.

"William would have thought that any conversation with a prime minister would be confidential," said an angry palace aide. (ANI)
