The relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry first began to suffer after a conversation regarding the speed of Prince Harry’s engagement, a royal expert has claimed in a documentary. Prince William now reportedly regrets the “well-meant” advice he sought to give, which recommended that Harry “take his time” with Meghan Markle after they announced their engagement. According to Katie Nicholl, this argument caused the first cracks in the “unbreakable brotherly bond” that the brothers had previously shared. 

Speaking to the Real Royalty documentary ‘Kate: A Young Queen in Waiting’, Ms Nicholl said: “William probably does have a major regret over the conversation that he had with his brother around the time of the engagement when Harry and Meghan got engaged.

“When William basically sat down with Harry and urged him to just take his time and not rush into anything.

“What was intended as well-meant, brotherly advice didn’t go down well with Harry at all.

“Harry felt that he didn’t have his brother’s support and that really was the beginning of the breakdown of what was up until then, an unbreakable brotherly bond.”

Prince Harry proposed to the American former actress in November 2017 after 16 months of dating. 

Their engagement announcement was followed by a photocall in Kensington Palace and an interview with the BBC later that evening. 

Speaking of his proposal, Meghan revealed that he got down on one knee whilst “trying to roast a chicken and it was just an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic.”

Their wedding took place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, less than two years after they first met during a blind date. 

Prince William may not ever trust Meghan warns expert

Speculation about a rift between the Cambridges and the Sussexes first began to circulate in October 2018, after they separated their royal households. 

Harry and Meghan went on to relocate to Frogmore Cottage, away from Kensington Palace and established their own royal foundation.

According to royal author Robert Lacey, who authored the book ‘Battle of Brothers’, their feud intensified after William spoke to Harry about the allegations that Meghan had been bullying members of staff. 

The Duchess of Sussex has consistently denied these claims, stating that they form part of a “calculated smear campaign” aimed to discredit her character. 

Speaking of their rumoured feud in October 2019, Harry told ITV’s documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey: “Part of this role and part of this job, and this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, inevitably, you know, stuff happens. But look, we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers.

“And we’re certainly on different paths at the moment, but I’ll always be there for him, as I know he’ll always be there for me.”

He continued, “We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy, but you know, I love him dearly. The majority of this stuff [in the press] is created out of nothing, but you know, as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days.”

A few months afterwards, the Sussexes announced that they would be stepping down from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family. 

After relocating to California, the couple participated in an explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, where Harry opened up about his relationship with his older brother. 

He characterised it as “space” and claimed that William was “trapped” within the institution. 

Despite reuniting on two occasions for the funeral of Prince Philip and the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue, reconciliatory talks have reportedly been unproductive.
