Prince William ‘accused Harry of putting fame over family’ after Oprah interview
April 8, 2021
Prince William accused Prince Harry of putting "fame over family" after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex' bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey aired, a source has claimed.
Prince Harry made no secret that his relationship with his brother William is strained, telling Oprah the pair are in a place of "space" and are on separate paths.
He also claimed Kate Middleton’s husband is trapped within the Firm, along with his father Prince Charles, claiming the pair "don’t get to leave," in the way that he did.
The interview revealed other shocking concerns about the Royal Family, with Meghan Markle alleging a senior member of the Royal Family was concerned about the skin tone of Archie Mountbatten Windsor’s skin tone prior to his birth.
Prince William addressed this allegation during an outing with Kate, responding with "we’re very much not a racist family," when asked about the Duchess of Sussex’s claim.
During the outing, he also said he hadn’t spoken to Harry yet, but would soon, with Gayle King later claiming conversations had been "not productive" between the brothers and their father, Prince Charles.

Prince Harry and Prince William are expected to come face to face for the first time in a year on July 1 2021 for the unveiling of their mother, Princess Diana, 60th birthday commemorative statue.
Us Weekly’s source said the Duke of Cambridge is "insisting" on seeing Harry before the public event, but the Archewell co-founder isn’t so keen and won’t be "bossed around".
"If Harry acts out on the day or even worse, doesn’t show up, William will never, ever forgive him," the source adds.
