Prince William ‘deeply hurt’ as Harry focuses attacks on his brother – ‘It’s devastating’

Harry’s upcoming memoir is set to detail disagreements between the brothers

Published

A royal expert has criticised Prince Harry after the Duke of Sussex has suggested no attempts have been made to heal the damaged relationship between his family and Buckingham Palace.

In an upcoming interview, Harry says “they feel as though it is better to keep us somehow as the villains” and “have shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile”, although it is unclear who he is referring to.

Responding to the comments, royal commentator Kinsey Schofield told GB News the Royal Family have clearly tried to fix the fractured relationship.

“Did any of us really think that Harry and Meghan would be invited to the jubilee after the Oprah Winfrey? Did any of us assume that they would have such a prominent role in the Queen’s funeral?

“You look at those instances – that is an example, that is an action at an attempt of reconciliation.”

The Duke’s upcoming memoir, which is expected to give details about his disagreements with the Prince of Wales, is being released on January 10.

It comes after the Duke claimed in his Netflix documentary that William broke a promise to him never to leak stories or brief against one another after witnessing the fallout of such actions in their father’s office.

Kinsey Schofield told Isabel Webster and Martin Daubney it’s disappointing that Harry has chosen to attack his brother.

“It’s so unfortunate because if you’ve studied the Royal Family you know that Prince William has spent the majority of his life protecting his younger brother from his mother’s mistakes, from his father’s mistakes, shielding his eyes and ears because he wanted to protect his heart.

“He is truly going after the one person in the world that has tried to make his life easier.

“It’s devastating and it really hurts Prince William.”

The Duke of Sussex has said he wants his father and brother back during an ITV interview due to be released this Sunday, two days before his memoir is published.

But in a separate interview with CBS News, set to air the same day, Harry also criticises Buckingham Palace over an alleged failure to defend him and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, before they stepped down as senior royals.

The Duke also reveals to the US broadcaster that he would not return to the institution as a full-time royal.
