PRINCE William was angry with Harry and Meghan over their “insulting and disrespectful” reaction to the Queen’s ban on them using the word “royal” in their new ventures.

He felt the couple had betrayed Her Majesty over the setting up of their Sussex Royal website as they took steps towards Megxit, sources have claimed.

And despite the brothers going for a long walk to try to clear the air after the “Sandringham Summit” Megxit deal in January last year, sources said they “did not part shores as friends”.

William, 38, was reported to be “upset the most” over Harry and Meghan’s surprise launch of their website featuring a blueprint of their future as part-time royals striking commercial deals.

The Queen later decreed that the Sussexes could no longer use “royal” in their ventures.

And a statement on the couple’s website hit back, saying: “While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy . . . over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ . . . or . . . ‘Royal’ . . . ”

According to The Sunday Times, a senior royal source said both “the content and that it is still online is staggering”.

The source added: “That was it for William, he felt they’d blindsided the Queen in such an insulting and disrespectful way.”

It was said to be still at the forefront of William’s mind at the Commonwealth Day service one year ago when there was a clear frostiness between the brothers and their wives.

That was it for William, he felt they’d blindsided the Queen in such an insulting and disrespectful way.

But it was reported that William misses Harry, 36, and the fun they used to have together — and that their parting is “still raw” and “he’s very upset” it happened.

It is claimed Wills was at the heart of all of the Royal Family’s crisis discussions after the recent bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview with Harry and Meghan, 39.

Sources said he spoke with the Queen, 94, and dad Prince Charles, 72, about how to respond.

He was reportedly keen that the issue of race should be acknowledged in the Queen’s statement as an area of particular concern that “will be addressed”.

It was said wife Kate’s “groundedness’ was a “critical anchor” in the Duke of Cambridge stepping up to the senior royal role.

A source close to William said he was “reeling” in the immediate aftermath of the Oprah interview, adding: “His head is all over the place on it.”
