Ent Daily has contacted reps for Buckingham Palace for comment.

It comes after it was reported that William told a friend he can't "put his arm around" his brother anymore.

He said, according to the Sunday Times newspaper: "I've put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can't do that anymore; we're separate entities. I'm sad about that.

"All we can do, and all I can do, is try and support them and hope that the time comes when we're all singing from the same page. I want everyone to play on the team."
