Apparently, the problems between Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William haven't stopped and have become a real headache for the royal family. According to statements by journalist Robert Lacey, the differences between the sons of Prince Charles have worsened in recent years and run the risk of becoming a complicated issue for the monarchy. In fact, the famous writer did not hesitate to classify the relationship between Harry and William as something like a "trauma" for royalty as the death of Princess Diana.

Harry and William's troubles could be traumatic for the Crown

Robert Lacey, one of the journalists consulted for the writing of the series The Crown, spoke to the newspaper The Daily Mail about his next book Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult, where it details the complicated relationship between Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William.

Although many had commented that the problems between the brothers began when Harry began dating his now-wife, Meghan Markle, the renowned journalist pointed out that the problems had existed before.

"Some say, 'Oh, it doesn’t matter. It will blow over.' But that’s not what historians will be saying in ten years' time."

Lacey also stated that if the problems between the heir to the throne and his younger brother continue, the royal family will face a "traumatic" situation.

"If this breach between the brothers is not healed in some way it will come to stand with the Abdication crisis and the death of Diana as one of the traumas that changed the monarchy," Lacey stated.

The journalist and biographer commented that, although there are intentions to improve the relationship between the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge, these are being held for the moment.

"There is time to change things in a positive direction, but at the moment the Palace is not working in that direction," Lacey concluded.
