Prince Harry and Prince William were once considered brothers in arms after they walked behind Princess Diana’s coffin after her death in 1997. But a royal correspondent has said that this may no longer be the case.

While speaking with Yahoo’s “The Royal Box,” The Sun’s royal correspondent Emily Andrews said that the press has always assumed that Prince William and Prince Harry have a perfect relationship as siblings. However, just like everyone else, the brothers’ relationship has been more of an up and down.

Andrews also said that one of Prince William and Prince Harry’s royal aides told her things got very bad for the siblings after the latter tied the knot with Meghan Markle last year.

“I was told after the royal wedding, Harry and Meghan didn’t see Kate and William personally. I’m not talking about Trooping the Colour or anything… They didn’t see each other, the two couples, for 6 months and they lived on the same campus, the same site at Kensington Palace,” Andrews said.

The interviewer asked the royal correspondent if she really believed the royal aide, and she said yes. The interviewer noted the fact that Prince William and Prince Harry have been photographed together in public so many times after the royal wedding. But Andrews said that the brothers were simply attending royal engagements during those instances.

Rumors of an alleged feud between Prince William and Prince Harry reportedly started even before the latter wed the “Suits” alum. Sources claimed that Prince William warned Prince Harry against marrying Markle very early on in their relationship.

However, Prince William’s word of advice wasn’t embraced by Prince Harry positively. The Duke of Sussex became upset with his brother for his lack of support on his and Markle’s relationship.

Prince Harry still pushed through with his plan, and he wed Markle at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. Prince William served as his best man on his special day.
