Harry and Meghan 'must be trusted to move forward' says expert
Rumours of a rift between Harry and William have persisted for years, with the younger sibling hinting at the feud in a TV interview in 2019. Tensions began when William offered Harry advice on taking things slow with Meghan Markle, something the younger son bristled at.
The situation escalated when Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family without any warning last year.
But now, the Evening Standard's royal editor Robert Jobson has warned the rift between the royal siblings will not be repaired until "trust" between the brothers is restored.
Mr Jobson told GB News: "The problem they've had so far is that any conversation with Prince Charles or Prince William it seems to be aired on US TV first and the whole thing is public.
"Until there is an element of trust between all of these characters, I can't see how they can go forward.

"We've had this row this week with the BBC and legal letters for a story that was true."
The Duke of Sussex previously opened up about his relationship with his brother and the Royal Family back in 2019.
In the documentary, Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, Harry said: “Part of this role and part of this job, and this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, inevitably, you know, stuff happens.
“But look, we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers.

"And we’re certainly on different paths at the moment, but I’ll always be there for him, as I know he’ll always be there for me.”
He added that the pair have “good and bad days”.
Royal author Robert Lacey also gave more insight into the feud in his new book Battle of Brothers.
In the book, he claimed the pair fell out after William told Harry he was moving too quickly with Meghan.

The Duke of Cambridge was so concerned about the pace of the relationship that he asked his uncle, Charles Spencer, to intervene.
Mr Lacey argued the fallout could threaten the future of the monarchy.
The author also claims William and Harry argued over Meghan’s involvement in British Vogue’s Forces of Change issue and the couple’s treatment on one of their final royal engagements.
The relationship between the royal siblings escalated following Meghan Markle and Harry's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The couple claimed there were conversations about the colour of Archie's skin before he was born.
Meghan also said she was suicidal during her 18-months as a member of the Royal Family.
Since then, Harry has also taken part in a podcast and a documentary series where he has hit out at the Royal Family.
Last month, the Duke of Sussex appeared on the Armchair Expert podcast where he said he does not want to pass on pain from his own experience to his son Archie and future daughter.
In a new documentary series, called 'The Me You Can't See', Harry also opened up about his experiences with mental health, claiming his suffering goes back to the "same people, the same business model and the same industry".
