This week has seen the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex a short distance from each other with the Sussexes and Cambridges in Windsor. Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have been staying in the UK as they carry out duties on a five day trip.
The siblings’ proximity to each other has fuelled speculation the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will shun the Sussexes or the families will seek to repair their fractured relationship.
Equally, the location of the Cambridges’ new home, Adelaide Cottage, raises the chances of a private meeting between Harry, Meghan, William and Kate, despite their troubled history.
A family friend told Yahoo News: “People are desperate for steps to be made, but behind the scenes there hasn’t been movement.
“What [Harry] is waiting for is accountability. Many lines were crossed by William. He was at the centre of a number of painful moments, be it the actions of his own staff or turning his back when support was needed.
“It was a dark time and one that, so far, William has been unprepared to unpack.”
The friend added William is still waiting for an apology from his brother for making details of private family matters public.
They said: “When you look at the bare facts, it becomes obvious why it is pretty much the same state of affairs as years ago.”
Relations between the dukes reportedly hit rock bottom after the Sussexes took part in a tell-all interview with US TV host Oprah Winfrey in March last year.
It came after William was apparently blindsided by Harry and Meghan’s announcement they would step down from their duties as senior royals, dividing their time between the US and UK.

Harry said during the CBS interview with Ms Winfrey: “I love William to bits. We’ve been through hell together and we have a shared experience, but we are on different paths.”
He went on to claim William and their father Prince Charles were trapped within the monarchy.
The Duke of Sussex added: “The relationship is space at the moment and time heals all things, hopefully.”
After the interview, William was forced to counter accusations of racism levelled against the monarchy by his brother, saying: “We’re very much not a racist family.”

Harry’s forthcoming memoir, which is due to hit the shelves in time for Christmas, is also said to have unsettled members of the Royal Family.
There will be concern among royal quarters that Harry will delve into his rift the Duke of Cambridge, his troubled relationship with his father, his view of stepmother the Duchess of Cornwall and the turbulent fallout from Megxit.
It is not known whether the brothers have met during the Sussexes’ current stay in the UK.
The brothers attended a Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June, but they were not seen together.
On Tuesday, Harry and Meghan were in Dusseldorf for an event marking one year to the Invictus Games, which are due to be held in the German city.
It came a day after Meghan gave the keynote speech in Manchester for the One Young World summit.
The former Suits actress told the 2,000 delegates how her life had changed when she last joined the summit in London in 2019.
She singled out her role as a wife and mother, but made no mention of becoming a senior royal the year before.
Harry and Meghan are due to attend the WellChild Awards tomorrow (September 8).
The awards celebrate the inspirational qualities of the UK’s seriously ill children and young people along with those who make a difference to their lives.
Harry has been a Patron of the charity for several years.
