Princess Diana ‘would have given Harry telling off for breaking away’

Harry and William have drifted apart over the years, it's said

In latest Prince Harry news, a royal expert has said his late mother Princess Diana wouldn’t have been happy that he ‘broke away’ and is in a ‘rift’ with brother Prince William.

The Duke of Sussex stepped back from his senior royal role last year alongside his wife Meghan Markle.

However, royal biographer Angela Levin said Diana would have told her youngest son “to be there for William as he gears up to be King”.

What’s happened between Harry and William?

Rumours of a rift between Harry and Prince William have existed for years.

Tensions apparently began when the Duke of Cambridge reportedly told his brother to take things slow with Meghan.

Things have now become worse since Harry and Meghan stepped back from royal life, and made explosive claims about the royal family during their Oprah interview.

Earlier this year, Harry spoke about his relationship with William during his interview with Oprah Winfrey.

He said: “As I’ve said before, I love William to bits. He’s my brother.

“We’ve been through hell together. We have a shared experience, but we were on different paths.”

Meanwhile, in April, the brothers reunited at their grandfather Prince Philip‘s funeral.

Royal fans were delighted when William and Harry were spotted walking and talking together following the service.

The brothers are expected to reunite next month for the unveiling of a Princess Diana statue.

The statue is being put up at Kensington Palace to honour what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday.
