Prince William isn't ready to forgive and forget. Though the royal has been in touch with his younger brother, Prince Harry, since his tell-all with Oprah Winfrey aired, a source stated the father-of-three is still "deeply distressed" over Harry publicly sharing the royal family's private matters.
According to a report, William is most upset that Meghan Markle aired out her issues with his wife, Kate Middleton.
During the interview with Winfrey, Meghan revealed that prior to her 2018 wedding, the two had an argument over flower girl dresses that ended up with Meghan in tears.
"There wasn’t a confrontation. I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details because she apologized, and I’ve forgiven her," Meghan clarified. "It was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologized, and she brought me flowers and a note, apologizing."
Though no more details of the tiff were revealed, a source claimed "fiercely protective" William is still "unhappy" that the situation was made public.

"Judging from the reaction of what he said, from the huge repercussions this interview has had, any healing is going to take a very long time," explained royal expert Katie Nicholl. "What feels so sad is that he was just getting family relations back on track. He wasn't speaking to his brother for a long time, but they were back in touch."
Added Nicholl, "Wiliam is devastated by this interview."
News anchor Gayle King confirmed on CBS This Morning that Harry has spoken to William, and their father, Prince Charles, recently. However, nothing was resolved.
"I did actually call them to see how they were feeling, and it's true, Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too," King said. "The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation."
