PRINCE HARRY and Prince William are trying to resolve the “hurtful” row that has torn them apart, the author of a new biography about Harry and Meghan Markle has said.

Meghan Markle: Royal expert grilled over Kate Middleton rumour

Carolyn Durand, co-author of Finding Freedom, revealed some of the contents of her and royal correspondent’s Omid Scobie’s book during an interview with Today. Ms Durand claimed that the disagreement between Harry and William starter in 2016, when Prince Harry first met Meghan Markle.

The rift was reportedly initiated by comments from William indicating his brother should “take some more time getting to know Meghan”.

Ms Durand said: “He expressed to him, maybe he wanted to take some more time getting to know Meghan.

“It wasn’t because people didn’t trust Meghan.

“This was simply because the boys had watched our for each other since they were young children.”

But she explained that the brothers did not fall out due to anger or resentment, but rather due to reciprocal feelings of “hurt”.

Ms Durand said: “As we write in the book, it wasn’t anger. It was hurt.”

The new title also reveals that the brothers “hardly spoke” in the months following the conversation.

Sources close to the Royal Family alleged that tensions only increased after Harry married Meghan in 2018.

But the relationship between the two brothers only got worse after the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex announced their intention to step back as senior members of the Royal Family.

The bombshell book also reveals details of the beginning of Harry and Meghan’s whirlwind romance and the reason why William felt that the couple were moving too quickly.

The biography explains how the pair knew they “would be together” after the second date.

It also reveals how they were instantly “obsessed” with one another from the day they met.

Ms Durand said Prince Harry “pledged” to marry the Duchess when they were on their second trip to Botswana in 2017.

She said: “They actually made a promise to each other in Botswana initially underneath the stars.

“And when Harry got back to London, then he did propose over a roast chicken.”

But the coronavirus pandemic is said to have brought William and Harry closer together and have started to make amends.

Ms Durand said the brothers are slowly “making their way back to each other”.

Ms Durand said: “Like in any family, there have been some ups and downs, but the brothers are making their way back to each other. And that will take some time.”

But the relationship between their wives has also been blamed for Harry and William’s rift.

Co-author Omid Scobie said: “These are two women that really have very little in common.

“I think that being a newcomer and knowing that Kate was once a newcomer, I think there were times – speaking to sources – where Meghan felt she could have had, or needed, a little bit more support from Kate and didn’t get it in some of those important moments.”

However, Mr Scobie stressed that reports of tensions between the two women may have been over-dramatised by public opinion.
