“And they will try at least make sure they understand that can still figure something out in the future.
“But our reporting for the podcast shows that the rift between Harry and William is really deep and really personal.
“It will take both of them coming to a point where they want to make up before that is possible behind closed doors.”
Harry’s hopes to mend his long-standing rift with William were doomed to fail
William fears Harry will use conversations they have during the Platinum Jubilee for Netflix
Working members of the Royal Family likely to watch the RAF flypast from the Buckingham Palace balcony this year include Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
The Cambridge children may also be in attendance.
Only royals “undertaking official public duties on behalf of The Queen” are due to appear on the balcony this year a palace spokesperson said.
This may discount Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Prince Andrew, all of whom have stepped back from royal duties.
When asked about the reasons behind the rift, the podcast host said: “You have two men who grew up thinking they were No 2 and No 3 most important people in the country.
“They were in the military and they are both stubborn guys – but they were really close.
“It just took a couple of key moments, incidents, for them to see they had more issues than they realised.
“The pandemic has either brought people together or driven them further apart.
“I think Harry being in a different country has definitely impeded anything they could have done to make it up in recent months.”
This comes amid reports that William fears Harry will use conversations they have during the Platinum Jubilee weekend as material for his Netflix shows.
Sources have hinted that the Duke of Cambridge is “wary” about his brother’s decision to join the weekend celebrations.

Harry and Meghan will not be allowed to join the Queen on Buckingham Palace’s balcony
A source told The Sun: “‘William wants to talk to Harry to try to heal the rift between them but he’s fearful it will find its way onto Netflix, Oprah or into Harry’s upcoming book.”
Harry and Meghan confirmed earlier this month that they would be bringing three-year-old Archie and 11-month-old Lilibet with them for the Jubilee celebrations.
However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are no longer working royals, will not be allowed to join the Queen on Buckingham Palace’s balcony for Trooping the Colour.
Last week it was reported that royal aides are planning to prevent the couple’s Netflix crew from filming inside the palace for any Jubilee events.
