Laughing a little before he indirectly confirms that their relationship has become strained over the years, Harry explains:

"Part of this role and part of this job, this family, being under the pressure that it's under, inevitably stuff happens. But look, we're brothers, we'll always be brothers. We're certainly on different paths at the moment but I'll always be there for him and as I know he'll always be there for me."

In March 2019, the Palace confirmed that the brothers would be separating their households and Harry would be moving out of Kensington place to live with Meghan Markle and their son in Frogmore Cottage.

Since separating their royal households, Harry and William have also separated their charities and social media, pulling the brother's work in different directions.

While Harry doesn't address the separation of their households, he admits that they are not as close as they used to be, he says:

"We don't see each other as much as we used to because we're so busy, but I love him dearly. The majority of this stuff [in the media] is created out of nothing, but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days."

British tabloids have been speculating that the royal households were split because of tensions William and Kate Middleton have with Meghan. However, filmmaker Nick Bullen reveals:

"It's actually that William and Harry have had a rift. I think you know, look. All brothers fall out. All families fall out. Their fallout at the moment is becoming public."
