Both Prince Harry and Prince William will attend the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla next week.
It will mark their first meeting since the publication of the Duke of Sussex’s tell-all memoir Spare, which focused heavily on the dynamic between himself and his older brother — the heir and the spare.
Although Harry has reportedly been in contact with his father King Charles, the same cannot be said for him and William.
According to Nick Bullen, Editor-in-Chief at True Royalty TV, the brothers have not been in communication at all.
The commentator sat down with Christine Ross and Christina Garibaldi for an episode of their podcast Royally Us.

When asked whether there had been “any sort of communication between William and Harry or Megan and Kate,” he responded: “My understanding is there have been no discussions between Harry and William. It is absolutely radio silent. It’s a very big void.
He added: “And no one that I’m talking to you seems to see a way that those two are going to have a reparation.”
His comments came after Harry mentioned his older brother in a written statement at the High Court.
In a witness statement supporting Harry’s legal action against News Group Newspapers, it was revealed that William reached a settlement with the Murdoch-owned publisher in a phone hacking case.
The revelation has reportedly infuriated the Prince of Wales, who was already upset at claims made about himself and the rest of the Royal Family in Harry’s memoir.
For commentator Kate Mansey, the assistant editor of Mail on Sunday, Harry mentioning his brother could be a push too far.
Speaking on GB News on Wednesday, Ms Mansey argued Harry’s “people could have let William’s know” regardless of whether the brothers are on “speaking terms” or not.
She added: “William didn’t know about this until it was made public. I think as a courtesy he should have let him know. And I think it’s just really damaging. It’s hard to see now how they can repair that relationship.”
Harry’s trip to the UK for his father’s Coronation is expected to be brief. The Duke is travelling alone as his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet will be staying in California.
May 6, the day of the Coronation, is also Archie’s fourth birthday, a suspected reason for Harry’s fleeting visit.
Princess Diana’s former confidante Paul Burrell claimed Harry could be “in and out in a flash,” explaining he believes the Prince could receive a “very icy reception from the Windsors” and “will be sitting ten rows back” at the ceremony and may not even see William or Charles.
Mr Burrell told GB News’ Dan Wootton: “It is not a surprise. He is coming to show face. He is coming to put his foot in the door. His father will be delighted that both his sons will be there to witness this incredible day in his life.
“But Harry is not going to hang around. He doesn’t want to spend much time around them. There is no chance of a reconciliation anytime soon, I’m afraid.”
That being said, other reports have suggested that Harry’s relationship with his father is showing more signs of hope.
Both the King and his second son are said to be willing to put the past behind them in order to move forward.
Mr Bullen said: “I do know that the King and Harry have spoken and the King is doing all he can to try and keep lines of communication open, but I think it’s pretty much between the King and Harry at the moment.”
