Princes William and Harry went for a long walk together before Harry moved to the US with Meghan Markle – and the pair “did not part as friends” a source claims.
British publication the Mirror quotes a “source” who said the brothers took time to discuss things after the details of the so-called “Megxit” were negotiated.
William was reportedly upset by the reaction Harry and Meghan had to being told they could not use the word “royal” once they quit royal duties.
“While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy … over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ … or … ‘Royal’ …” a statement posted to their website read.
The source alleges that William felt the statement was “insulting” and it stayed on his mind.
British outlet The Sun, citing a source, said the Duke of Cambridge fears conversations with Prince Harry would be “plastered over American TV”.
The brothers reportedly had an “unproductive” phone call following accusations of racism levelled against the Royal Family.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have returned to their quieter lives after the world watched their interview with Oprah.
During the two-hour interview, the couple claimed a member of the Royal Family asked how dark their son’s skin would be.
Gayle King, who is Oprah’s best friend, told CBS This Morning that her understanding was that Harry and William had spoken to each other in the wake of the interview.
She described it as an “unproductive” conversation and added that “no-one in the royal family has talked to Meghan yet”.
That wasn’t met well by commentator Piers Morgan, who walked off on his breakfast TV role over criticism of Markle.
“Rather than acting as your Sussex friends’ PR mouthpiece to facilitate their ongoing public trashing of our Royal Family,” he tweeted at King.
“How about doing your job as a journalist and ask them about all the lies they told in Oprah’s interview?”
William, meanwhile, spoke briefly to reporters when he broke tradition to answer questions from a reporter last week.
He said he intended to speak to his brother and added: “We’re very much not racist family.”
