Prince William and Prince Harry will not heal from their rift while the Duke is ‘so under the thumb’ of wife Meghan Markle, a royal biographer has claimed.
The Duke of Cambridge, 39, and the Duke of Sussex, 36, are expected to put any tensions aside for unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue on Thursday at Kensington Palace to mark what would’ve been their late mother’s 60th birthday.
But according to Hugo Vickers, any attempts of a reunion in London could result in Prince Harry having to answer for it when he returns to his wife in their £11million mansion in Montecito, California.
‘I don’t know what they can do under the present circumstances,’ he said, speaking to The Express about the possibility of the pair mending their relationship. ‘Harry has got to wake up to what’s going on. It’s a very unpleasant situation and I don’t think it’s going to be the right moment this week.
‘Harry is so under the thumb of Meghan it is not really possible until he emerges from that.’

The royal biographer, who doesn’t think Prince Charles will intervene, went on to say that the brothers could speak via videolink or phone but claimed neither Harry or his wife Meghan Markle wanted to.
‘He has thrown in his lot with his wife,’ said Hugo. ‘That’s it, isn’t it? Slagging off his family didn’t help anybody. It’s a dreadful situation.’
He continued: ‘You’ve got to remember that Harry has to return to his wife in Los Angeles. If he starts reconciling, he will get his head bitten off, won’t he?’
The royal expert also went on to say how the tension between the brothers is likely to steal the limelight from the poignant event – adding that ‘everyone will be focusing on’ the two boys being together.

It will mark the first time Harry has both travelled to Britain and spent time with his brother since the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral at Windsor Castle on April 17.
His wife Meghan Markle has remained at their £11million mansion in Montecito with two-year-old Archie and their second child, Lilibet Diana, who was born 21 days ago at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
The reunion comes in the aftermath of Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive two-hour CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey which aired in March, where the royal made reference to his relation with William amid reports the brothers had fallen out in the wake of Brexit.
Prince Harry told the talk show host: ‘As I’ve said before, I love William to bits. He’s my brother. ‘We’ve been through hell together. I mean, we have a shared experience. But we’re on different paths.
