James Middleton: It 'Does Get Frustrating' Being Duchess Kate's Brother

There's nothing wrong with a little sibling rivalry, but having a sister who married into the most famous royal family may make it a little hard to shine.

James Middleton is invited to royal events, spent Christmas Eve playing football with Prince Harry and is the uncle to a future King. But the 27-year-old says being related to a royal 'does get frustrating' because his own work and businesses are so often overshadowed.

James does have his own thing going on, though. His current company, Boomf, puts your photos on marshmallows. He sells the kitschy treats for 15 pounds a pop -- that's a little over $22.

The Duchess of Cambridge's baby bro spoke with Young Director, a new lifestyle magazine and app exclusive to iPad users. He said: "I work incredibly hard just like every other person in business and work. And aside from the fact of, yes, I am the brother of someone very important, I am, at the end of the day, just James."

In the interview, James discusses his guilty pleasures -- like the show "Family Guy" -- and opens up about his struggle with dyslexia. He also discussed who he'd want to play him in a movie: The dapper lad says Leonardo DiCaprio would be perfect because he "believes in his acting mastery," adding "he would make me look fantastic."

At the end of the day, being a good uncle is his top priority.
