Prince Harry has opened up about his relationship with his brother in a new ITV documentary.

In the show, titled Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, Prince Harry addressed rumours that he and William have fallen out, stressing that the pair are currently on “different paths”.

Harry said there was little truth to the speculation, telling royal correspondent Tom Bradby, "The majority of the stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days”

Speaking about his relationship with William, the duke added, “We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me.

"We don't see each other as much as we used to because we are so busy but I love him dearly.”

Prince Harry’s comments come after he and his wife, Duchess Meghan, separated from their joint charity with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, earlier this year.

The two couples continue to work together on the Heads Together mental health campaign.

The ITV documentary gives a glimpse into the lives of the royal couple and focuses on the struggles they have faced both as newlyweds and as new parents to their son, Archie.

In the show, journalist Tom Bradby also asks Prince Harry whether Meghan faces the same pressures from the media as his late mother, Diana.

Harry replied, “I think I will always protect my family, and now I have a family to protect.

“So everything that she [Diana] went through, and what happened to her, is incredibly important every single day, and that is not me being paranoid, that is just me not wanting a repeat of the past.”

He also commented on his mother’s legacy, “Being here 22 years later trying to finish what she started will be incredibly emotional but everything that I do reminds me of her.

“But as I said with the role, with the job, and the sort of pressures that come with that I get reminded of the bad stuff, unfortunately."
