Tensions between the two brothers are running high and Prince William is reportedly 'greatly concerned' that his brother, Harry, will go 'too far'. 

Prince William is worried that Prince Harry might go "too far with his truth bombs," according to a source. The future King is reportedly worried that Harry's revelations could further damage his relationship with the royal family.

The Mail on Sunday reports that a friend of Prince William told the publication that the Duke of Cambridge is "greatly concerned" about Harry's revelations. 

Prince Harry and Oprah also released a follow up to docuseries The Me You Can't See with Oprah Winfrey, which explores how mental health issues are addressed within society. The Me You Can't See: A Path Forward, landed on Apple+ on 28th May, where you can also catch the original docuseries. 

During The Me You Can't See: A Path Forward, Harry discussed the "shame" family members may feel when they fail to recognise the signs of depression. 

"As parents, as siblings, certainly from what I’ve learned, there’s an element of shame we feel because we’re like, 'How could we not have seen it?'", Prince Harry told Glenn Close, who was a guest in the episode.

"How did we not know? How did you not feel comfortable enough to come to me and share that with me?

"But we all know when people are suffering and people are struggling that we’re all incredibly good at covering it up." 

Prince Harry's relationship with his father, Prince Charles, has come under scrutiny after the release of The Me You Can't See, following Meghan and Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah back in March. Harry shared how "suffering" should not be a cycle that continues throughout family generations, revealing in the show, "My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and I, 'Well, it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you.'

"That doesn’t make sense. Just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean your kids have to suffer. Actually quite the opposite. 

"If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, you can make it right for your kids."

The Me You Can't See has received mixed reviews, with some critics arguing that the docuseries falls a little flat. 

"I have been knocking back the anti-emetic medication since the trailer dropped, and the series itself is as cloying as expected," said journalist Lucy Magan writing for the Guardian. 

Oprah has defended the series, releasing in a statement after the series landed, "One of the things that Prince Harry and I wanted was for people to understand that mental health and mental fitness is a spectrum and we're all on a spectrum. 

"Everybody either is or knows somebody who's going through something."
