Prince Harry and Prince William's reported feud is believed to have profoundly changed the relationship between the once inseparable brothers. And Megxit - the decision by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to relinquish their royal roles and establish their lives abroad - has created a physical distance between the siblings.
Royal author Robert Lacey hopes Prince Harry and Prince William will be able to reconcile in the near future.
However, he added, he does not believe their relationship will return to be the same as before their alleged feud.
Mr Lacey, author of Battle of Brothers, said: "I expect that is the long-term solution here: duty in the form of William and Kate will take over the situation, and Harry and his love will enjoy the freedom of America and, I hope, obviously there will be some sort of reconciliation.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

"There is texture and history between these brothers, but it’s never going to be the same.
"I would imagine the base for Harry and Meghan is going to remain in the United States for the foreseeable future."
Mr Lacey believes the brothers gained two different lessons from the traumatic and public fallout of their parents' marriage between the late 1980s and mid-1990s.
One, Prince William, found comfort in knowing his future role and, thanks to a close relationship with the Queen matured during his years at Eton, he grew up with a strong sense of duty and commitment to the Crown.
