Prince William’s split with Prince Harry is similar to the loss he suffered after the tragic death of their mother Princess Diana, a royal expert claims.
Duncan Larcombe, a journalist and author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, explained that the tension between the royal brothers is increasingly painful for Prince William.
He told OK! magazine that the 38-year-old feels he has suffered a loss by saying, “There is no doubt that this is one of the hardest things William has been through, the hardest since his mother died.
“He feels like he has lost his brother and his best friend.”

Rumors of a rift between the brothers arose in 2019 when the brothers divided their households after a series of disagreements over Harry’s role.
It also turned out that Harry was upset when William advised him not to rush into marrying ‘this girl’, which the younger brother viewed as a disdain for Meghan.
The Duke of Cambridge’s split with his brother is said to have soured even further in early 2020 when the Sussexes ‘blinded’ Her Majesty by announcing that they would step down from their role as senior royals and move to the US.
After the infamous ‘Sandringham Summit’ – when the Megxit deal was struck – William and Harry went for a walk to clear the air. But they do not part the coast as friends, it was reported.

William is said to be particularly saddened by the couple’s surprise launch of their ‘Sussex Royal’ website before the summit last January.
Later, when the Queen decided they could no longer use ‘royal’ in their future ventures, Meghan and Harry hit back with a bold statement saying they had no intention of using ‘Sussex Royal’ or ‘Royal’, although there was ‘none’. jurisdiction ‘over its use abroad.
The issue was said to be still played by William during the Commonwealth Day service last year – the Sussex’s last engagement as working royals – when tensions were felt between the brothers.
Then came the bombshell interview with Oprah in which Prince Harry aadmitted that he and his brother are on ‘different paths’ and have good days and bad days in their relationship.

Harry added that he felt sorry for his brother and his father, Prince Charles, for being stuck in their royal roles.
The allegations have said they further soured the rift between Princes William and Harry.
The Sunday Times reported that Prince William had been “shaken” by the confessions, with friends who insisted they were “far from the mark.”
Gayle King, 66, who is a close friend of Oprah, has revealed that Harry and William spoke after the bombshell interview aired, but their conversations were “ unproductive. ”
She told CBS This Morning: ‘Well, I’m not trying to share any news, but I did call them to see how they felt, and it’s true, Harry talked to his brother and he talked to his dad too.

‘The word I got was that those conversations weren’t productive. But they are happy that they have at least entered into a conversation.
And I think what still upsets them is that the palace keeps saying they want to fix it privately, yet they still believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging towards Meghan, still.
No one in the royal family has spoken to Meghan at this particular point.
And I think it’s frustrating for them to see it’s a racial conversation about the royal family when they just wanted the royals to step in and tell the press to stop the dishonest, inaccurate, false stories that have a decidedly racial slant.
And until you can recognize that, I think it will be difficult to move forward. But they both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. Ultimately, that’s Harry’s family. ‘
