Rupert Bell told Times Radio’s John Pienaar that Queen Elizabeth II did not want members of the Royal Family to address the accusations made in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey publicly. Mr Bell added that Prince William’s “off-the-cuff” response when asked about his relationship with Prince Harry on Thursday, reflected the Duke of Cambridge’s anger at his brother.
John Pienaar said: “William will surely not want to prolong any verbal tit for tat.”
Mr Bell replied: “No, and I think that is why the Queen did not really want it.
“She wanted that statement and then to deal with it in-house.
“Clearly, there is a sense of frustration and what he needs to do is pick up that phone to Harry quickly and have that conversation.
“That is the way that you resolve it, you stop it escalating and then we do not see a sort of trial by media.
“In a way, I think the best thing for him to do is just talk to his brother and say let’s try and get back on track.
“I think at the moment the way William responded, I am sure he was not thinking he was going to make a statement but it was off-the-cuff, I think it reflects his disappointment and anger with what Harry has done with the interview with Meghan and Oprah Winfrey.”
On Thursday, the Duke of Cambridge addressed his relationship with Prince Harry.
Prince Harry and William 'haven't spoken for a year' says Ship
When asked if he had spoken to his brother since the Oprah Winfrey interview, he said: “I have not spoken to him yet but I will do.
Prince William added regarding allegations of racism with the monarchy: “We are very much not a racist family.”
On Friday morning, ITV’s Royal Editor Chris Ship stated that William and Harry have not spoken since the Duke of Sussex quit his position as a working member of the Royal Family in 2020.
He told ITV’s Good Morning Britain that the divide between the princes appears to be deeper than believed as their communication has drastically reduced since the Duke of Sussex left the monarchy.

Mr Ship said: “There is a huge distance I would say, for example, I know that the two brothers have not actually spoken directly for the best part of a year.
“Actually what the documentary has done because it has been that big, is started some movement as it was described to me.
“No more than that, but some movement between the two brothers, I do not know what that is, it could be some messaging between them.
“It could be that their two private offices are talking and arranging an interview, this is how distant they have become.”
