Prince William doesn’t like talking about his brother Harry because it “gives him a headache”, a friend of the Duke has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to the UK briefly this week to see the Queen for the first time in two years.
The couple made a private visit to the monarch on their way to the Invictus Games in The Netherlands, which marks their first joint trip since they stepped back from the Royal Family in 2020.
Harry did not see William during his short time in the UK, as the Duke of Cambridge is currently on a skiing holiday with his family.
The brothers have not seen each other since they unveiled a statue of their mother Princess Diana together outside Kensington Palace in July last year.

A friend of William told the Daily Mail: “He doesn’t like talking about Harry. He says it gives him a headache.”
They added: “He understands the need for reconciliation and all that, but at the same time he worries about his father being ‘ambushed’ by Harry.”
Harry and Meghan are thought to have arrived in the UK on Wednesday after an overnight British Airways flight from the US.
They didn’t bring their children, Archie, two and Lilibet, 10 months, but promised the Queen she would get to see them both “in the near future.”
It has been reported that the Queen also insisted the pair saw Prince Charles, with the Duchess of Cornwall joining their meeting half way through.
The Prince of Wales is said to be concerned about the publication of Harry’s upcoming memoir later this year.
Harry has shared details about his upbringing in the Royal Family and appeared to take aim at Charles specifically for his parenting abilities in 2021.
During Oprah Winfrey’s mental health series, The Me You Can’t See, he spoke about the vicious cycle of “suffering” passed on by his father.
He said: “My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to William and I, ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it’s gonna be like that for you.’ That doesn’t make sense.
“Just because you suffered, it doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer. In fact, remove the opposite.
“If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever experiences, negative experiences that you had, you can make it right for your kids.”
