The trust between Prince William and Prince Harry is continuing to diminish.
According to a source, the father-of-three was both surprised and disappointed that his younger brother shared the details of an intimate phone call with TV anchor Gayle King, who then made them public during an episode of CBS This Morning.
"William was left reeling," the source told Us Weekly. "He says it was a cheap shot to leak details of their private call and that he twisted the truth."

The source added that William "now feels uncomfortable" talking to Harry about their issues, as he fears "he’s putting himself at risk of the same thing happening again."
During Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey, the former revealed he and his brother were giving each other "space."
"I love William to bits. We’ve been through hell together and we have a shared experience, but we are on different paths," he explained. "The relationship is 'space' at the moment. And time heals all things, hopefully."
A week later, Winfrey's pal King revealed the siblings had been in touch after the TV special aired.
"Well I'm not trying to break news, but 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 shared on the March 16 episode of CBS This Morning.

"The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive," the TV anchor added. "But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation."
While the royal family is upset that Harry and Meghan are airing out their troubles publicly instead of keeping it within the family, the aforementioned source believes the father-of-one will continue to share his story so that people know his truth.
"The problem with Harry is that he’s hooked on being right," the source stated. "And regardless of saying he wants to move on from this, he won’t back down until he gets some form of apology from his family."
