Royals careful what they say to Harry after constant leaks, claims expert

Members of the Royal Family "will be careful what they say to Prince Harry" while he is over in the UK this week – but there will be "leaks on both sides", a royal commentator has said.

Recent reports have suggested that there is alarm and misgivings about how quickly private conversations appear to enter the public domain "from the Sussex side".

There were also reports that Prince William and Kate Middleton did not have a conversation with Prince Harry after Prince Philip's funeral over fears that the dialogue could be leaked.

And, with the Duke of Sussex now in the UK in order to unveil a statue of his late mother Princess Diana in the Sunken Garden in Kensington Palace, reportedly one of her favourite spots, family members "will be careful" when speaking with Harry, according to one royal expert.

Marlene Koening, a royal author and expert who runs the Royal Musings website, told the Daily Star that Prince William may invite his brother back to his home following the unveiling so that they can spend some family time together following rumours of a falling out between the pair.

She said: "I wouldn't call this a sad occasion because this is celebrating their mum's life.

"He's at Kensington Palace and if this were me I would say, 'Would you like to join us for lunch? Would you like to see your niece and nephews? I'm sure they'd be happy to see you'.

"That would be a good thing to do. Lower it to the family level."

She added: "I'm sure there will be leaks from both sides, as there are want to be and I think certainly family members will be careful in what they say to him but I think that would be best. Put it down on a family level.

"They're at Kensington Palace, it's just a short walk to their home, and just sit down and just do some family thing without focusing on the other and without focusing on the tension and just see what happens out of that."

The brothers were reunited for the first time since Megxit at Windsor Castle in April as they bid farewell to their beloved grandfather Prince Philip.

They were spotted chatting as they left the castle grounds along with Kate Middleton, and reportedly had a “heart to heart” conversation.

Prior to that, ITV journalist Tom Bradby – friends with both William and Harry – said the brothers had been arguing for the past 18 months.

He told The Times that the pair's relationship had "slowly descended into something that was difficult – personally and publicly – really over the past year and a half".

It came following an interview with the ITV journalist in which Prince Harry admitted that he and Prince William are "on different paths".
