Can Harry and Prince William patch up their differences?

Prince Harry has been urged to “man up” and support his brother William during the ongoing BBC inquiry.

William has welcomed an inquiry into whether journalist Martin Bashir created false documents in order to persuade their mother, Princess Diana, to appear on Panorama when she was alive.

And now Harry has been urged to put their differences to one side and support his older brother.

“It is odd he hasn’t spoken out about the BBC and Bashir case as he has been speaking out a lot about other things recently.”

Ingrid continued: “Harry should really man up and forget the fallout with his brother. They should be standing shoulder to shoulder on this one.”

Previously, William, 38, said that he welcomed the BBC’s inquiry.

It should help establish the truth behind the actions that led to the Panorama interview.

A spokesperson for the Prince said he “tentatively welcomed the investigation”.

In addition, the statement read: “It should help establish the truth behind the actions that led to the Panorama interview…

“…And subsequent decisions taken by those in the BBC at the time.”
