Prince Harry insists the split with Prince William wouldn’t have happened if Princess Diana was alive

Prince Harry thinks he would be on better terms with Prince William if Princess Diana were still alive.

During an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote his memoir Spare, the 38-year-old opened up about the tension between him and his brother in recent years following his decision to step down as a senior member of the family British Royal in early 2020.

As part of the chat, host Stephen asked Harry if he thought his relationship with William would be different if his mother Diana hadn’t died in a car crash aged 36 in 1997.

“We wouldn’t have come to this point,” he said. “It’s impossible to say where we would be now, where those relationships would be now, but it’s impossible for the distance between my brother and me to be the same.”

Harry went on to note that turning 36 motivated him to make a number of changes in his life and made him feel closer to his mother.

“I felt it more in the last two years than in the last 30,” the royal continued.

To conclude the interview, Stephen asked Harry if he saw his mother or grandparents at his children Archie, three, and Lilibet, 19 months, whom he shares with his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

“Definitely my mother. The ginger gene is strong!” he laughed as the TV presenter held up a portrait of the family.

“Look at that. They’re both redheads,” Stephen remarked.

“The Spencer gene is very, very strong,” Harry continued, referring to Diana’s family. “In fact, I really, sincerely thought at the beginning of my relationship (with Meghan) that it should go far and we have children that there is no way the ginger gene can resist my wife’s genes , but I was wrong. Come on redheads!”

Buckingham Palace representatives declined to comment on Harry’s claims.
