A royal biographer Andrew Morton said Friday that late Princess Diana would be very upset by the enmity between her sons, Prince William, and his younger brother Prince Harry who now lives in the U.S.
Andrew who secretly collaborated with Diana on his 1992 book, “Diana: Her True Story,” said on the UK’s “Loose Women,” “Diana said to me quite clearly on several occasions that she saw Harry as the wingman for William in what would be a very solitary, somber job as future king.”
“She would have been very upset at the way these two have split apart,” Andrew added while on the talk show ahead of what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday on July 1.
Princess Diana passed away in August 1997 in a car crash that happened in Paris, France, and was 36-year-old at the time of her death.
Prince William and his younger brother Prince Harry are preparing to host an elaborate ceremony next Thursday at Kensington Palace, their mother’s former home, to unveil a statue in her honor.
The Duke of Sussex departed from his Santa Barbara, California home on Thursday and jetted to the UK, where he will quarantine for five days before meeting with his brother William.
Prince Charles, who divorced Diana in 1996 before her demise will be away at his Scottish estate during the event and is said not to be interested in meeting his second son Prince Harry in London.
The relationship between the Duke of Cambridge and his brother Duke of Sussex is believed to have soured in March of 2019 when William reportedly suggested they go separate ways with their families.
The reaction from the Duke of Cambridge was a response to a bullying complaint that was made against Meghan Markle, Harry’s wife by her former communications secretary in 2018 … the Duchess of Sussex has denied the bullying allegation.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exited the royal family early last year and moved to the U.S. to live privately and pursue their own goals.
