William is said to be mourning the collapse of his relationship with Harry with friends of the Duke of Cambridge warning there is little chance of reparation in the foreseeable future. Sources claim that the royal brothers are at “rock bottom” with “little chance of improvement”.
An anonymous source told the Daily Mail: “[William] alternates between grieving for what he has lost and feeling really, really angry about what his brother has done.”

They added: “He truly loves Harry and feels he has lost the only person, aside from his wife, who understood this strange life of theirs.
“But he believes there are things you just don’t do. And Harry has 100 percent crossed that line.”
A friend also said that William believes his brother has “disrespected the Queen and their family”.

One reader, username SueGWarks wrote: “I think too much damage has been done and Harry has lost the trust of the Royal Family. It would be nice if they could but not likely.”
Username grimm6 said: “Any apology would make no difference. There is NO trust there any more.”
And username Pawspal said: “It’s too late, the trust is now gone. I can understand William mourning the old Harry, but that Harry is lost to us now.”
Username jewells wrote: “No Harry shouldn’t apologise. It’s gone way beyond REPAIRABLE.”
And username Elite said: “Whether they should or shouldn’t make up is down to them and nobody else.
“However, I can’t see it happening as the rift is too deep and trust has been well and truly broken – that is something there is no coming back from.”
Meanwhile, username Bookaire said: “The best thing Harry can do for HRH Prince William is to stay away from him.”
