• Prince Harry and Prince William are likely to reconcile if the former leaves Meghan Markle  
  • Prince Harry is unlikely to leave his wife and return to the U.K. to be with the royal family
  • Kate Middleton could help Prince William and Prince Harry fix their relationship  

Prince Harry is rumored to be having a falling-out with his brother, Prince William, but one royal correspondent is convinced that they could still reunite if Prince Harry were to leave his wife, Meghan Markle.

The Duke of Sussex made numerous statements that seemed to attack his own family in his recent interviews in the past weeks. He claimed in the docuseries "The Me You Can't See" that he didn't get the help he expected from his family and his wife was a victim of the firm and the media's coordinated smear campaign. He also infuriated the royal family when he described his life as "a mix between 'The Truman Show' and being in a zoo."

Prince William "is very shocked by the amount of things that his brother has said over the last few weeks," a source told Us Weekly. However, royal correspondent Kinsey Schofield believes that Prince William and Prince Harry could reconcile if the latter were to leave his wife and fly back to the U.K. But she also believes that it's unlikely for Prince Harry to do that.

"Sadly, I think the only way that things would go back to normal is if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were to separate and Prince Harry returned to the UK solo," Schofield told Mirror. "However, Harry would never leave his children in another country."

The Los Angeles-based royal correspondent also said that Kate Middleton could help Prince William and Prince Harry reconcile.

"I believe the Duchess of Cambridge is a very strong champion for the reunion, but I also imagine that she knows where her husband's head and heart are and isn't going to push for something that he's not ready for," Schofield said.

The Duchess of Cambridge was called a “peacemaker” when the royal siblings reunited at Prince Philip’s funeral in April by royal biographer Katie Nicholl. The viewers were happy upon seeing Prince Harry chatting and exiting the chapel with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"It's always been my understanding that behind the scenes, Kate has tried very hard to forge a rapprochement and act as a peacemaker between William and Harry," Nicholl said. "I certainly think she played quite an important role in getting the brothers to the point where they were able to engage in a conversation, of course, in front of the world's press. Everyone was watching."

Prince Harry and Prince William's falling-out allegedly started when the latter told his younger brother to slow down with his romance with Markle while they were still dating. "This all seems to be moving rather quickly. Are you sure?" Prince William told Prince Harry, according to Robert Lacey in his book "Battle of Brothers."

However, the Duke of Sussex didn't take his older brother's advice well. Prince William allegedly asked Princess Diana's brother, Charles Spencer, to intervene and it just made things worse.

"The result of the Spencer intervention was an even more bitter explosion. Once again Harry refused to slow down," Lacey added. "The fraternal fissure became established. There would be patch-ups and reconciliations, especially when a public show of unity was required. But that anger and mistrust - that distance - has lasted to the present day."

Many believe that it would take time before things could get back to normal between Prince Harry and Prince William. A family friend told People that their reunion at Prince Philip's memorial was a "good start" but it would take more than that for them to bury the hatchet.

"I think it's a good start and it was lovely to see but this whole argument runs so deep, I don't think there is any quick fix," the unnamed source said.
