Speculations over rift between royal brothers - Harry and William, have been doing rounds for sometime now. But Palace aides have repeatedly denied reports of any tension between the 'Fab Four' - Prince Harry and Meghan and Prince William and Kate.
But seems, the cat is out of the bag now after Prince Harry acknowledged there had been deepening tensions between himself and William, in an ITV documentary aired Sunday night. The Duke of Sussex initially laughed in response to the question, then said: 'Part of this role, part of this job and this family being under the pressure it is under, inevitably stuff happens.'
The 35-year-old told ITV presenter Tom Bradby: 'But look, we are brothers, we will always be brothers. We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and, as I know, he will always be there for me'. He added: 'We don't see as much as we used to because we are so busy but I love him dearly and the majority of stuff is created out of nothing. As brothers, you have good days, you have bad days'.
Following Prince Harry's comments, it is likely to be embarrassing for Buckingham Palace, which has sought to downplay reports of strains between the Cambridges and Sussexes. According to reports in Daily Mail, tensions triggered reportedly in the run-up to last year's royal wedding, with Harry apparently accusing his elder brother of failing to support him and Meghan.
Speculations started, after the Sussexes decided to move out of Kensington Palace to Windsor and split their joint household, moving their staff over to Buckingham Palace. Later, the two couples parted ways over their charitable work, with Harry and Meghan set to launch their own royal foundation next year.
