Princess Diana would be ‘heartbroken’ over rift between sons Harry and William

Princess Diana would be “heartbroken” over the rift between Prince Harry and Prince William, a royal photographer has claimed.

Rumours of tension between “Fab Four” had circulated for months – until a bombshell interview last October in which Harry admitted he and William were “on different paths”.

Three months later, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they would be stepping back from the Royal Family and began a new life in Canada.

The unprecedented decision seemingly took the rest of the royals by surprise, leaving them “hurt and disappointed”.

Royal photographer Jayne Fincher spent 20 years with the family, and first started snapping Diana in 1980 when it was rumoured she was dating Prince Charles.

She told entertainment website Page Six: “(Diana) would be heartbroken, particularly as the boys have gone through so much together.

“[Diana] would be doing everything she could to try and solve it.

“She’d be doing everything to be the peacemaker. She’d be shaking the boy’s heads together saying, ‘For goodness sake. What’s going on here?’ I think she’d be trying to make peace between the girls, too.”

Fincher believes Prince Charles will also be devastated by his sons’ strained relationship.

She added: “Charles must be broken-hearted because he’s extremely close to those boys.

“All through that period of grieving, they were close.”

Kate Middleton reportedly told Prince Harry she “felt like she’d lost a brother” after his shocking departure.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex came back to the UK earlier this month for their final public royal engagement, the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey.

They shared a brief greeting with Prince William and Kate, but didn’t appear to interact further.

However, the Duchess of Cambridge reportedly pulled Harry aside to tell him about the impact Megxit was having on her and Wills.

A royal insider told Woman’s Day New Zealand: “Kate knew it could be the final opportunity to air her feelings and she was incredibly emotional.

“Apparently, she fought back tears as she told them how their lack of communication and contact both before and after they moved to Canada had been devastating for them and how they felt completely shut out of their lives.

“Kate told Harry how she felt like she’d lost a brother too, and explained just how upset the children were, especially George and Charlotte, who desperately missed their uncle Harry and wanted to see their cousin.”
