The Duke of Cambridge has ended his long and trusted friendship with ITV’s Tom Bradby because of “the way he’s acted” over the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry fallout, an insider has claimed.

Princes William and Harry have been pals with the News at 10 presenter for about 20 years and he was a guest at both royal weddings. They also trusted him with Kate and William’s engagement interview.

However a senior source claims that while Harry still speaks to him regularly, William does not and their relationship is “very much over”.

They told the Daily Mail : “The Duke feels let down by Bradby and the way he’s acted over the past few months.

“William is a sensitive soul and believes it’s in times of crisis when you find out who your true friends are. It would be fair to say Bradby hasn’t been one of them.”

Most famously, Bradby joined Meghan and Harry for their tour of South Africa and filmed a behind-the-scenes documentary.

In the programme, Meghan revealed that nobody had asked her if she was okay, and admitted that she wasn’t.

Harry also used the documentary to confirm a rift between him and his older brother, saying they were on “very different paths”.

The source also claims that Palace staff are also angry at Bradby and the “tone of his reporting”, which they believe is in favour of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

They said: “It’s well-known Bradby personally communicates with Harry on a regular basis and that is pretty obvious to royal aides who know how things work. But it’s been very difficult to accept given the long history between Bradby and William.”

Bradby has spoken out about the brothers’ relationship a number of times since the rift began.

Speaking on Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh, he said: “I think Harry is heartbroken by the situation with his family… the whole thing has just been incredibly painful.

“I felt a little bit caught in the middle of them with that documentary… it’s a deeply uncomfortable place to be.

“[They] wrestle with their position in life… I think William does too. I don’t think he finds it easy.”

The Mirror has contacted ITV for comment.
