Prince William “can’t completely forgive” Prince Harry for “what he’s done” a royal author has claimed.

William and Harry have grown apart since the Sussexes stepped down as senior royals in 2020.

And despite the pair standing alongside each other on several occasions during the mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II, royal author Katie Nicholl claims “William can’t completely forgive Harry".

While Harry's departure from the firm was "very difficult for William", Ms Nicholl added.

Ms Nicholl said: “It was very difficult for William, and I think that’s partly why this rift hasn’t been resolved, because, you know, William can’t completely forgive Harry for what he’s done.

“It had a huge impact on him, on Catherine, on their young family.

“It put them in that prime sort of centre. It moved them centre stage far sooner than they would otherwise have been,” she told US Weekly.

It comes after Ms Nicholl claimed that King Charles III is hopeful of fixing his own relationship with Harry.

Ms Nicholl said: “He is hopeful that there will be a reconciliation. I think we saw that in the very public olive branches that were extended to Harry and Meghan.

“Charles absolutely has been devastated by what has happened.

“If you think back just a couple of years around the time of the wedding, the relationship between Harry and his father was, I think, probably better than it ever had been,” she told Fox News.

The “olive branches” Ms Nicholl was referring to include Charles’ message to the Sussexes during his first speech at King.

During the address last month, the King said: “I want also to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas.”

While the King has a photograph at Buckingham Palace from Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding, a video revealed earlier this week.
