Richard Fitzwilliams told Entertainment Daily!: “Many think that the fact that William grew up knowing he would one day be king and Harry had no defined role, led to rivalry between brothers who were considered inseparable.

“Harry’s reputation was as the royal wild child for years, William’s image was far more serious however he behaved.

“Some say Harry resented not being taken seriously, despite his military service and charitable work.”

He continued: “The ‘Fab Four’ idea, that William and Catherine and Harry and Meghan would work together despite their different roles and personalities was a disaster.

“But no one predicted it.

“Harry now believes he was trapped as a member of the royal family…

“…and that William currently is but doesn’t know it.

“The rift between them, long reported and first confirmed in the ITV documentary about their South Africa trip, is public and serious.

“It was his marriage to Meghan which unquestionably changed him.”

Meanwhile, rumours of a rift have surrounded Prince William and Harry for years.

Earlier this summer, they came together and put on a united front at the unveiling of a statue to honour their late mother, Princess Diana.

It marked her 60th birthday.

Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew‘s ex-wife, recently hinted the statue unveiling brought William and Harry together.

She told Australian Women’s Weekly that the statue “brought unity and togetherness to the family”.
