Royal Family news – Claim Prince William's staff planted stories about Harry's health ditched from ITV doc at last min

ROYAL aides insisted ITV cut out allegations William was leaking information about Prince Harry from a new documentary, reports have today claimed.

Omid Scobie, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s biographer had suggested on the show that senior palace aides had briefed newspapers over concerns regarding Harry’s state of mind. 

He claimed that it was following an interview with journalist Tom Bradby in 2019 where Harry said that he and his brother were on “different paths”.

However Kensington Palace are understood to have warned ITV that the suggestion, if aired, would be defamatory in that it was substantially untrue.

The claims were meant to air in the prime-time documentary “Harry and William: What Went Wrong?” But the MailOnline have reported that they were cut from it at the 11th hour over defamation fears. 

Mr Scobie explained that he believes that the interview about a rift between the brothers was given a negative spin by palace sources.

    DIANA’S VOICE COACH THAT TURNED HER INTO A CONFIDENT SPEAKER

    In November 1955, Stewart Pearce, was asked to meet a young lady who was in need of voice training classes.

    Not long after her panorama interview was aired, despite feeling liberated, Diana did not like the way she came across and so was in search of a voice specialist.

    By the time Diana sadly passed away, Stewart said he had helped Diana with her transformation into an assertive and confident speaker.

    “She had found a way of balancing her private and public self so that there was no change between the two. She could stand on a platform and feel relaxed and confident about whatever it as she needed to say.” Stewart said.

    A former actor, turned voice coach and drama teacher, and a former Master of Voice at London’s Globe Theatre, Stewart, now 69, has just published a book, Diana the Voice of Change – something he describes as a “call to arms for women”.

    PRINCE WILLIAM WON’T DISCUSS ROYAL RIFT WITH PRINCE HARRY AS ALL DISCUSSIONS HAVE TO GO THROUGH MEGHAN, EXPERT CLAIMS

    Prince William avoided talking about his rift with his brother Prince Harry this week as all discussions have to go through Meghan Markle, a royal expert has claimed.

    Richard Eden said that when the two brothers were seen chatting on Thursday during an event to unveil a statue for their mum Diana, probably they did not discuss any serious topics.

    The expert claimed that even though the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex seemed close at the ceremony on July 1, it is unlikely that they spoke about the ongoing tensions between them, the Daily Mail reports.

    Mr Eden said: “Whatever discussions they’ve had between Harry and William whether it’s about the football or whatever while Harry’s here, they won’t have been very serious.

    “I mean William knows [that] without Meghan being there, there’s no point in discussing anything serious, because it will have to go through her anyway.”

    ARTHUR EDWARDS SAYS ‘WILLIAM AND HARRY FRICTION IS REASON SO FEW PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INVITED TO DIANA MEMORIAL’

    Royal photographer, Arthur Edwards, has had his say on the rift between the two Princes ahead of Diana’s statue unveiling.

    Arthur Edwards has said: “If they had wanted more people there for the unveiling they could have done it somehow.

    “It is sad the Queen, Prince Charles and other members of the Royal Family who were close to Diana can’t be there.

    “I believe the on-going friction between William and Harry is the real reason so few people have been invited. In many ways I find that unacceptable.”

    Close friend, Colthurst said: “I felt, when she joined the Royal family, she may not have been fully aware of the machine she was in,” he wrote.

    “The Firm, for its part, was unaccustomed to having a superstar in its midst, and I don’t think they knew how to cope with the enormous amount of publicity she generated.”
