Relations between the brothers have deteriorated sharply, with Harry and Meghan making incendiary accusations during an interview with Oprah Winfrey last month. They were pictured together for the first time since the Sussexes’ stood down as senior royals at Prince Philip’s funeral.

According to Phil Dampier, who wrote ‘Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan in their own words’, relations between the Sussexes and Cambridges have been “broken”.

Speaking to The Sun he said: “William’s big fear is that anything he says to his brother in an effort to heal their rift is immediately leaked to the media, and that makes it very difficult for them to have a proper conversation.

“To carry on a war with Harry’s blood family is unnecessary and counter-productive, and the sooner they realise that the better.

“They should get on with their lives, stop playing the victim and stop playing on their royal connections by leaking stories while pleading for privacy.

“People can see through it and anyone who advises them to carry on this way is giving them bad advice.”

Whilst appearing on Ms Winfrey’s show Meghan claimed there were “concerns and conversations” within the Royal Family about Archie’s skin tone ahead of his birth.

She added: “That was relayed to me from Harry.

“Those were conversations that family had with him.”

However Meghan refused to name the family member responsible as “that would be very damaging to them”.

Harry confirmed a discussion had taken place commenting: “That conversation, I am never going to share.

“At the time, it was awkward, I was a bit shocked.”

Ms Winfrey later said the Sussexes had asked her to make clear the comment didn’t come from either the Queen or Duke of Edinburgh.

William and Kate celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary on Thursday with a number of senior royals posting congratulatory messages.
