Prince William is claimed to be locking the door and throwing away the key to his younger brother, Prince Harry.

"Make no mistake, William is keeping Kate and his family well away from Meghan and Harry," former royal butler to Diana, Princess of Wales, Paul Burrell told an outlet.

The Duke of Sussex accused The then-Duke of Cambridge of assaulting him in 2019.

"The door of Adelaide Cottage is shut, and there is no way in for Harry and Meghan," he added. "William knows that Harry can’t be trusted and doesn’t want any more upset in his family."

Burrell worked for the late princess from 1987 to 1997, after her tragic death. During this time as her assistant, the bestselling author also helped look after a young William and Harry, who both later criticized Burrell for writing a book about their mother in the early 2000s. Now it would seem that the future king may agree with some of the ex-royal aide's criticisms about the Duke of Sussex.

Burrell went on to say that His Royal Highness only considers Harry as "background noise" at this point and is likely okay with never speaking to him ever again due to what he wrote about him in Spare. In the tome, the fiery-haired prince joked about his elder brother's "bald head" and accused him of assaulting him in 2019, among many other disparaging excerpts.

The one-time butler also said the monarch-in-waiting would "explode" if Harry ever said anything negative about the Princess of Wales during a theoretical in-person meeting. He also shared how William is now the Prince Philip of the monarchy and "rules the family" due to King Charles III's busy schedule as head of state.

In a recent conversation about the rift, veteran royal author Ingrid Seward shared: "William is sensitive, he likes structure and has perseverance. He does not give up easily. His relationship with brother Harry upset him more than he would care to admit. But he found it easier to cut ties rather than allow himself to be continually annoyed."

"His father got cancer and Kate had a serious abdominal operation," she added. "Later to announce she too had to have cancer treatment. William played both mother and father to the children while he carried on with his royal duties supporting the Queen in his father's absence. The traumas of the past year have made him a stronger person. He has become the kind of man Diana always hoped he would be. Kind considerate and able to take on whatever life throws at him."
