"I think we've been discussing this for so long," TV journalist Lorraine Kelly noted. "However, this documentary — and Robert Lacey appears in it, the esteemed author who wrote Battle of Brothers — and so really gets to the nub of that the relationship breakdown didn't break down in just the last few years, it goes really deeper than that."

In the ITV special, titled Harry and William: What Went Wrong, historian Lacey claims that "Harry and Meghan [Markle] wished to split households... but the original impetuous was William, who no longer wished to have Harry and Meghan in his household."

"What it basically said was that for William, the monarchy mattered more than his brother," Lacey stated.

After Harry moved to California last year, he admitted that though he loves William, the two are giving each other "space."

The pair have only come face-to-face twice since the Duke of Sussex left the royal family: in April, Harry returned to the U.K. to attend Prince Philip's funeral, and at the end of June, he came back again to help unveil the statue of their late mother, Princess Diana.

At the funeral, a source claimed the men were "at each other's throats" while behind closed doors, but the most recent occasion signaled that their feud may be coming to an end, as both were smiling throughout the ceremony.

"Their overall postures looked remarkably relaxed and more so as the unveiling went on," body language expert Judi James told The Sun's Fabulous. "There was some eye contact between them, driven most by Harry, and both laughed together at moments, using some very emphatic and animated hand gestures."

"In the end they did well," she declared. "It might not be the end of the rift but it could well have signaled the beginning of the end."
