The final six episodes of Netlix's hit show dropped today

Prince Harry is depicted as constantly drinking and "jealous" of Prince William's attention from girls in the final season of The Crown.

The last six episodes of Netflix hit royal show dropped today, with the first episode titled "Willsmania".

It explored Prince William's and Prince Harry's slightly different approaches to grieving the death of their mother, Princess Diana.

Still studying at Eton College, William was called into his housemaster's office to discuss attending official events for Queen Elizabeth II's golden wedding anniversary to Prince Philip in 1997.

At one of the events, Prince Harry, portrayed by Luthor Ford, filled up two teacups of champagne for him and his older brother.

He commented sarcastically: "Well, this is a riot!" The Duke of Sussex added: "I filled it with champagne. Come on, you know you want to."

At the time, Harry would only have been 13-years-old.

In a later scene during a trip to Canada at Easter in 1998, Harry offered his brother alcohol in their hotel room.

He asked: "G and T or whiskey?" To which, William replied: "Beer's fine." The current Prince of Wales would only have been 15 at the time.

Harry raised his bottle and said: "To Mummy."

The duke has been open about his struggles with alcohol and drugs after the death of his mother.

He told Anderson Cooper earlier this year in a 60 Minutes interview: “It was obvious to us as kids the British press’ part in our mother’s misery and I had a lot of anger inside of me that luckily, I never expressed to anybody.

Prince William

“But I resorted to drinking heavily. Because I wanted to numb the feeling, or I wanted to distract myself from how… whatever I was thinking. And I would, you know, resort to drugs as well.”

Elsewhere in The Crown, Harry is portrayed as being "jealous" of his brother's attention from girls.

While talking about the plans their father had prepared for their trip to Canada, Harry told William: "He [King Charles] assured me they'd be shutting the place down. To keep the girls out. 'Marry me, William! I love you!'"

William, portrayed by Ed McVey, then told his younger brother to "F*** off".

Harry then said: "I'm just jealous. In the history of humankind, no one has ever screamed for someone with red hair."
