The rift between Prince Harry and Prince William seems irreparable as the two brothers find it impossible to make amends.
The Prince of Wales feels “deeply betrayed” by his younger brother and still finds it very difficult to talk about the Duke with whom he would be close.
Harry’s telling memoir Spare has also added fuel to the already tense situation, as the book contains several bombshell claims about William.
According to royal correspondent Charles Rae, speaking on behalf of Spin Genie, William is in a difficult position because the brothers used to be “so close”.
Rae added: “I think it was and still is very difficult for William in particular to speak out, not just on the specific allegations against the Prince of Wales, but precisely because both William and Harry were so close.
“I also believe that William feels very betrayed by his younger brother, who may well harbor the same feelings of betrayal by his older brother.”
Rae also thought, “Princess Diana would be appalled at the way things turned out. However, I highly doubt she would have let it get to this level of bitterness if she were alive, especially between her sons. She always tried to make sure both boys were treated fairly. She would never allow other members of the family to favor William, as heir, to the detriment of the reserve.”
The expert continued: “Harry always knew from an early age that he would never be king, but Diana had hoped that Harry would be in a unique position to support his brother when he is king. But alas, Harry, who is William’s wingman , has turned into his assassin.”
