Prince William was outraged by his brother’s latest controversial interview on US television, according to a royal expert. Prince Harry said on an NBC Today program this week that his late mother had “done her job” to set up her brother William with their family and she is now “helping my family”. The Daily Mail’s Royal Editor Rebecca English said the remarks “reflected Harry’s general level of resentment against his brother”.
Speaking to Palace Confidential of Melplus, Ms English said: “Instead of reconciliation, travel and interviews will only add to the sense of fatigue that many members of the Royal Family now have when it comes to Harry.
“Probably not for the Queen. He is very keen to keep the lines of communication open with her.
“She loves her grandchildren. Her ability to separate royal affairs and family is remarkable.
“But I don’t think it’s the same for other family members, especially the Prince of Wales, who is said to be at the end of his bond over this interview and Prince William.”

Ms English continued: “What is particularly hurtful to William is the comment Harry made about his later mother, Diana.
Harry commented on how he felt Diana did something for William by caring for him and their children.
“And now it’s time to focus on that, which is pretty strange to say.
“I think it reflects Harry’s general level of resentment towards his brother.
“From Williams’ point of view, in the past, he has made it clear that he finds such an attempt to own his late mother quite useless.
He said: “The circumstances are obviously different but I feel his presence in everything I do now.
“But certainly more than ever in the last two years, without question. She’s been keeping an eye on us.”
He said he was sure Diana would be proud of him.
Also during the interview, Harry avoided the question of whether he remembered his father Charles and brother William.
Asked about Charles and William, the Duke told presenter Hoda Kotb: “As for me at the moment, I’m here to focus on these people and these families and whatever I can to make sure I am giving them 120 per cent, to make sure they have the experience of a lifetime.
“Here’s my focus. And when I leave, I’m back and my focus is on my family, which I miss dearly.”
