The drama that exists between Prince William, the heir to Britain's throne, and Prince Harry, the Montecito, Calif., royal rebel, seems to be never-ending. Despite hope that the two royal siblings — who were once very close — may reconcile during Harry's recent visit, no such reunion occurred.

In fact, "They had not spoken for months owing to the Sussexes indiscretions. William doesn’t trust his brother. If you read his ill-advised memoir Spare, it is obvious why!" royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams exclusively tells The Royal Observer.

The Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex have not spoken since September 2022.

"We know there has been a deep rift in the royal family," he adds. "We also know that Harry’s visit, after he learned of his father’s illness, was brief and the pair spent only some 30 minutes together."

Fitzwilliams continues: "This may have been because the King had just begun outpatient treatment and was very tired. It was out of the question for him to see William, who had two royal duties the next day and was helping his recuperating wife as well as his children."

The King is currently battling an unknown form of cancer, which was diagnosed shortly after his "successful" procedure on his prostate. This "devastating" news comes only 17 months into his reign, which followed the equally troubling news of Kate, Princess of Wales' shock abdominal surgery on January 16. William took over two weeks off from royal duties to assist his recovering wife before having to "step up" and guide the Crown after its CEO fell seriously ill.

Prince Harry has barely acknowledged the serious illnesses of both King Charles III and the Princess of Wales.

"The main thing about Harry’s visit was that it happened," the veteran royal commentator shares. "It clearly showed he was concerned and may well be followed by subsequent visits. It was also sensible to come solo. Hopefully, this can be built upon in the future weeks and months. Cancer changes everything and families should be unified, at least publicly, during this very difficult time."

The Prince of Wales has stepped forward to become the central focus of the monarchy in light of his father's serious illness, which followed the heir's three-week break from duties to be by Catherine's side as she recovered.

Although Harry's recent trip likely infuriated the monarch-in-waiting, Fitzwilliams, and other premiere royal analysts trace the nexus of William's fury for Harry to Spare. Several members of his family were criticized in the book, but Prince William seemed to get this more than anybody else.

Prince Harry's memoir, 'Spare,' is still 'infuriating' Prince William even after a year in release.

Upon its release on January 10, 2023, Harry claimed William threw him to the ground in a fit of rage in 2019, which caused his back to land on and break a dog's water bowl on the floor. He further stated how his brother and Kate Middleton encouraged him to wear the infamous Nazi uniform to a 2005 costume party.
