Prince Harry and Williams’ ‘feud’ ‘worse than the abdication’ says royal author

Prince William and Harry's ongoing "feud" could see the Royal family face ruptions like never before, changing the face of the monarchy, says one royal biographer.

Robert Lacey, who has penned a new book on the two brothers says the divide between the once inseparable pair is "worse than anyone thinks".

The new book, Battle of Brothers dives into the cracks in Harry, 36, and William's, 38, relationship, with Lacey saying the dispute goes further back than people think.

Lacey, 76, who was once favoured by the House of Windsor and received co-operation from Buckingham Palace officials on his previous works has now been shut out.

The former journalist is known for sending parts of his books to palace officials for them to see the chapters before printing was shocked when he realised they hadn't opened his recent work.

"They took fright over the title, probably," he told the Daily Mail.

Lacey went on to say: "If this breach between the brothers is not healed in some way it will come to stand with the Abdication crisis and the death of Diana as one of the traumas that changed the monarchy.

"There is time to change things in a positive direction, but at the moment the Palace is not working in that direction."

This wasn't Lacey's only bombshell – the author who sits as Historical Consultant to The Crown added that the Palace's handling of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was not done properly.

He added that Meghan was "never going to be a routine royal".

Robert went on to say that had the palace sat down with Meghan to find out her interests, things may have gone in a different direction.

In another bombshell, he says Meghan walks through metaphorical minefields, echoing a move made by Diana, Princess of Wales when she walked through a live field of landmines in Angola back in 1997.

Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan announced in January 2020 that they were stepping down as senior working members of the royal family – a move not made since the abdication of the Queen's uncle, King Edward in 1936.

The pair now resides in Los Angeles and have recently signed a deal to work with streaming giant Netflix.

Daily Star Online has approached Kensington Palace for a comment on behalf of Prince William.
