A royal insider has revealed that Prince William and Prince Harry’s reconciliation may not take place as the brothers are reluctant to talk to one another following their royal rift.

To thank the sculptors and other people who were involved in the construction of Princess Diana's memorial statue, Prince William hosted a party at Kensington Palace.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Elton John all pulled out of this event honoring Princess Diana and Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were left to thank the guests alone. 

Robert Lacey the author of 'Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the inside story of a family in Tumult' told Page Six that Prince William bad-mouthed his brother to the attendees of this memorial event. 

"I’ve spoken to two people from that party and it was quite clear from things he said that his anger towards Harry remains," Lacey revealed.

"He remains unhappy about what his brother has done. There is no immediate possibility of any reconciliation. I mean, it’s not wanted on either side. Too many bitter things have been said."

These 'bitter things' include Prince Harry's and Meghan's revelation in an Oprah interview that there were racially charged comments made about their son Archie by members of the royal family. This led to Prince William having to defend the royal family and claim,  “We are very much not a racist family.”

The royal insider continued to reveal that Prince Harry and Prince Harry also had an explosive blow about their wives when bullying allegations were made about Duchess Kate and Duchess Meghan. 

"I am told by the person to whom William described this, that William physically went round to discover Harry on the Kensington campus and they had a face-to-face showdown,” the royal insider said. “It ended with William saying, ‘Well, I don’t want you in my household anymore."

Despite this animosity in the royal family, Robert claimed that there has been a 'curious benefit' to this reported royal rift, as Prince William has become closer with his father and grandmother.

"Certainly on this end of things, Charles, William, and the Queen have been on the telephone to each other a lot,” the royal insider said. “And a paradoxical benefit of what’s happened has been that now they have come to form an effective working trio at the head of things, with the Queen slightly taking a step back.”

“There have been problems between the Queen and Charles in the past,” he added. “Certainly problems between William and his father in the past. These are set behind them. And I’m told they have a very good efficient working relationship. And so the future of the Royal Family, and what it does, you know, is in very sound hands.”

The strength of the royal trio has only been highlighted in recent weeks. Recently, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen had a short stay at King Edward VII's Hospital in London on October 21.  At the time, royal representatives explained that Her Majesty was undergoing some 'preliminary investigations,' and was in 'high spirits.'

Following these health concerns, the Queen pulled out of COP26 Climate change summit. to ensure there was still a royal presence at this event, Prince William and Kate stepped in for the Queen. The Queen made a speech via video where she signalled the strength of her bond with Charles and William as her heirs as she said, "I could not be more proud of them."
