Nicholl added that while Harry admitted that he wanted to reconcile with his family, she does not see such an event happening anytime soon. Earlier, Harry revealed that he missed and wanted his brother and father back. The father of two also stated that he had attempted to reconcile but was met with no effort from the other party.

The Royal expert explained per Page Six, "The idea that he wants his father and his brother back just seems so incongruous with how he is behaving and what he's saying."

Nicholl further stated that Harry's painting of an "unflattering picture of the royal family and a very unsavory side of his brother and an uncaring side of his father" did not seem like the actions of someone eager for a reconciliation. "It really feels like a line has been crossed," she added.

Harry, in his yet-to-be-released memoir, stated that Prince William tackled him to the ground amid a quarrel about his wife, Markle. The Duke of Sussex claimed that the attack happened "so fast" and earned him a visible injury on his back after falling on and breaking his dog's bowl.

"It all happened so fast. So very fast. He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor," Harry wrote. "I landed on the dog's bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out."

Prince Harry And William Started Having Issues In 2020

Prince Harry and William reportedly started having trouble in their relationship in 2020 when the Duke of Sussex and Markle revealed that they wanted to resign from their Royal duties. Harry also hinted at their turbulent relationship in an interview in 2019, stating that the brothers were on "different paths."

Harry and Markle's 2021 bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey seemed to worsen the situation and further alienate the brothers. There, the father of two claimed that William and his father, King Charles III, were tied to their roles as royals.

He disclosed, "It's been really hard. I am part of the system with them, I always have been, but I guess — and I'm very aware of this — my brother can't leave that system, but I have."
