Prince Harry and Prince William should have a “ damn good fight and makeup, ” as the Queen and Princess Margaret did during their relationship, a royal expert claimed.

Princess Diana’s biographer Andrew Morton compared the ‘salt and pepper’ brothers to Her Majesty and her late sister, adding that the comparisons are ‘many and obvious’.

He added that while anyone watching Prince Philip’s funeral will look for ‘some kind of reconciliation’ between William, 38, and Harry, 36, he hopes this won’t be an ‘overshadowing’ of tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh.

Morton said on Steph’s Lunchbox yesterday, “This is not the first time that there has been a relationship between Cain and Abel within the royal family. Elizabeth and Margaret were a kind of salt and pepper of the royal family in their day.

They were a unique double act and the comparisons to William and Harry are many and clear.

The queen is much like William, cautious, balanced and calm. Margaret and Harry are a couple who kick the traitors over. Margaret always said “disobedience is my job”. ‘

Morton told host Steph McGovern that the Monarch and her sister had their ups and downs on a regular basis, adding, “ You would hope William and Harry would have a damn good fight, then make amends like the Queen and Margaret did during their relationship. . ‘

He continued, “Anyone watching the funeral is going to want to see some sort of reconciliation between William and Harry, and Harry and his father … All you hope is that it doesn’t overshadow the tribute to Prince Philip.

“If everyone watches what the lip readers say about the interaction between Harry and William, it will undermine the tribute to Prince Philip.”

Both brothers made very different statements yesterday to honor their grandfather.

Due to Prince William’s more formal approach, he described the Duke as an ‘extraordinary man’, while Prince Harry, who has returned to the UK from California, said he was’ a man of service, honor and great humor ‘, the’ master of the barbecue ‘and’ legend of chatter ‘.

Reflecting on the life of the Duke of Edinburgh, who died at Windsor Castle on April 9 at the age of 99, Morton said: ‘Prince Philip was progressive, he was proactive as we all know, and he was a modernizer in a pretty crunchy institution.

“I remember one of my first royal trips was to California in 1983, the Queen and Prince Philip went to Yosemite, you could tell he had no time for journalists and no time for the Secret Service.”

When discussing Philip’s legacy, Morton said he helped bring the monarchy into the 21st century and was the head of the firm.

“He is the one who, against the wishes of Winston Churchill and his wife, the Queen, showed the coronation on television,” he noted.

“He’s the one behind the 1969 Royal Family movie. He was the head of the family, the head of the firm. His rule was the law. ‘

Morton, who has acted as an advisor on series five of The Crown, said the Netflix drama was “ wrong ” when it came to portraying the Group Captain Peter Townsend saga.

“Princess Margaret had all the cards and the Queen gave her those cards and was willing to take some criticism of the monarchy to make her sister happy,” he claimed.

Morton previously admitted he was ‘baffled’ by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which the Duchess of Sussex claimed that concerns about her mental health were being ignored.

He said the royal family has a ‘history’ of seeking help from professional bodies for mental health issues, explaining that the queen herself received help with ‘breathing and relaxation’ during her Annus horribilis in 1992.

He also pointed to Princess Margaret, who reportedly sought the help of a Harley Street psychologist for depression during her ailing 1970s marriage to Antony Armstrong Jones.
