Prince William unlikely to repair relationship with Harry after Netflix doc

Prince William is unlikely to mend his relationship with Prince Harry after his Netflix documentary, a pal said.

The Prince of Wales is reportedly still angry about Megxit, which saw Harry and Meghan Markle step down from their royal roles, and the bombshell claims that followed – and now a friend has claimed the six-part series has solidified animosity between the warring brothers.

The anonymous friend told the Daily Mail: "All relationships are built on trust but for members of the Royal Family, who live their life in the spotlight, doubly so.

"The Prince is a very private man and what Harry is doing is the anathema of everything he believes.

"On that alone, many believe it is unlikely he will ever be able to repair his relationship with them.

"Too much water has gone under the bridge."

Sources said prior to the documentary that Prince William and King Charles were prepared to respond to any bombshell claims made in the documentary – but that William and Kate Middleton were not planning on watching the show.

However, sources now claim that although the royal duo have not yet watched the first three episodes, released on Thursday (December 8), they probably will at some point.

Buckingham Palace is said to have been ruffled by the series, which saw Harry and Meghan tell their love story in their own words.

But fans of the Sussexes have said the pair didn't make any new bombshell claims, with a royal expert calling the first three episodes "calm and collected".

Commentator Omid Scobie said: "Eps 1-3? No 'trashing', no bombshells, just their experiences (many already well documented) in their words. All pretty calm and collected.

"Great commentary about race and colonialism, and the section connecting Brexit to the couple’s story would have made a great doc in itself."

There were moments that caused controversy, however – a scene where Meghan mockingly exaggerated a curtsy saw fans of the Firm turn on the couple, taking to social media to say the Queen would be "turning in her grave".

"Our late Queen and Philip will be turning in their grave at this," one tweeted. "The 'fantasy recollection' of Markle curtsying to our late Queen, what an ABSOLUTE INSULT to Her memory."

Another added: "These two are an utter disgrace. The late Queen will be turning in her grave," while a third said of the curtsy: "I’ve only seen this clip and was embarrassed. The queen would be turning in her grave."

Not everyone was quite so enraged by the tale, however, with fans of the Sussexes saying Meghan was poking fun at herself, not the Queen.

"Insane people attacking Meghan Markle for laughing at her own poor attempt at a curtsy," one wrote. "She was mocking HERSELF and your attacks are just proving her and Harry's point! I loved the queen but I would butcher a curtsy and laugh about it afterward, too."

The documentary is the latest in a series of interviews, books and podcasts the couple have released since stepping down as working royals in January 2020.

The pair have previously accused the Royal Family of racism and of failing to protect them from the invasive paparazzi, which they claim prompted their infamous exit from the Firm.

The second batch of episodes will be released on December 15.
