National Enquirer - - FIRST TO KNOW -

PRINCE WIL­LIAM made a bold bid to make peace with his rebel brother, Prince Harry, but it ex­ploded into a bat­tle royal that may never be mended, sources told The Na­tional EN­QUIRER.

“Ev­ery­one is blam­ing

Harry’s diva wife, Meghan, for the roy­als’ bro­ken bond — and she cer­tainly hasn’t helped! But the rift started way be­fore she came on the scene and goes much deeper than any­one ever knew,” a high-level courtier re­vealed ex­clu­sively.

“The truth is Harry hates Wil­liam. Years of liv­ing in his brother’s shadow have left Harry tor­mented by one all-con­sum­ing be­lief: ‘No­body loves me.’

“They were raised to be the clos­est of brothers, but Harry’s painfully aware who was the fa­vorite.

“Wil­liam was born to be king while Harry be­lieves he was only brought into the world to be the royal ‘spare’ — to step in to se­cure the fu­ture of the monar­chy if some­thing hap­pened to Wil­liam.” Trag­i­cally, the red-haired royal “be­lieves he was never truly wanted,” ac­cord­ing to another source close to the fam­ily. “He knows his par­ents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, were al­ready in a rapidly un­rav­el­ing mar­riage when he was con­ceived.”

Things only got worse af­ter Wil­liam mar­ried Kate and had three kids, the sources said. Harry fell to sixth in the line of suc­ces­sion for the crown and “ba­si­cally felt he was not needed any­more.”

Harry was al­most 30 and strug­gling to find his place in life when he met Meghan, dished the courtier.

“He felt she loved him for

HIM, not his royal po­si­tion,” the courtier said. “He was so ex­cited to tell Wil­liam he had fi­nally found true love — but his brother threw cold wa­ter on his joy by fear­ing the ro­mance was mov­ing too fast. “That was the last straw for Harry — and they stopped speak­ing. The rift sim­mered for al­most three years un­til Wil­liam tried to make peace dur­ing the coron­avirus pan­demic.

“He urged Harry to for­get about a new life in the Hol­ly­wood spot­light that Meghan craves and come home. But years of Harry’s pent-up anger and frus­tra­tion sim­ply ex­ploded. I’m told he yelled at Wil­liam, ‘You were al­ways the golden boy. Mum loved you more than me!’

“He ac­cused Wil­liam of sid­ing with se­nior roy­als to strip him and Meghan of their ti­tles af­ter they quit royal du­ties. Fi­nally, he hissed, ‘Drop dead! You don’t care what hap­pens to me!’

“It was such a slap in the

face to Wil­liam, we can’t see the brothers ever get­ting back to the way they were.”

A rep for Wil­liam de­clined to com­ment, while Harry did not re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.

Now the palace is brac­ing for Harry, 35, to get re­venge in a new book, “Find­ing Free­dom: Harry and Meghan and the Mak­ing of a Mod­ern Royal Fam­ily,” due out next month. He and Meghan, 38, re­port­edly co­op­er­ated with the au­thors, and in­sid­ers fear Wil­liam, 38, will be painted as the bad guy.

“This could be the most dam­ag­ing thing to the royal fam­ily in decades,” said the source.

“But Harry clearly doesn’t care. He feels un­ap­pre­ci­ated and in­sists only Meghan un­der­stands his pain. With his wife and their son, Archie, he says he’s fi­nally got the REAL fam­ily he’s al­ways wanted. He doesn’t need or want his old life. The roy­als and their rules are dead to him!”

Harry has had enough of liv­ing in his brother’s shadow, royal in­sid­ers said

Wil­liam and Harry were raised by Diana to be the clos­est of brothers, but Harry still felt un­wanted, a source said
