THE cracks in Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship will “never” be repaired, a royal expert has claimed.
Ingrid Seward, who is the editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said that she fears the brothers’ bond is beyond repair after Harry stepped down as a senior royal this year.

Speaking on the Pod Save The Queen podcast, she said: “I rather doubt that they will ever get back to how they used to be. I really don't think so.
“I think that's probably a broken relationship.
“I think perhaps if something happened to Catherine or Meghan, the boys would be together again. But as long as their ladies are there and their families are there…
“If there was an awful tragedy it would bring them together, but otherwise I don't think that relationship will be mended. But that is a really personal point of view and I might not be right.”
Harry, 36, hasn’t seen William, 38, in months after he moved to California with Meghan, 39, and their one-year-old son Archie.
Ingrid added that Harry’s decision to step back from royal duties has “baffled” his grandfather, Prince Philip.
She said the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, has been left “appalled” by their “dereliction of duty”, after they left behind their roles and moved into a £11m mansion in Santa Barbara.
This follows royal biographer Robert Lacey, who recently released the book Battle of Brothers, saying that William’s main “challenge” as King will be to balance his principles with “bringing Harry back” to be part of the royal family.
He said that “everyone wants some kind of reconciliation” between the two brothers.
Robert said that William has taken a similar approach to “Megxit” as the Queen has, and said: “At the end of the day we saw a ruthlessness from the Queen over her absolute refusal to allow the Sussexes to use the word royal for their new branding, and we’re seeing the same ruthlessness in William.”
The biographer said he thinks there is “no chance” of Meghan and Harry returning to the UK and “leaving their American base.”
He added to Newsweek that their rift must be resolved when the Sussexes’ 12-month review of stepping back takes place in March 2021.
The couple are currently halfway into their probation period, and the Queen, Charles and William will review their role with the monarchy at the end.
