On any given day there are numerous rumours surrounding the royal family, most of which are likely not even close to being true. But one storyline that has followed the monarchy for the past year is about a falling out between Prince Harry and Prince William, and Prince Harry confirmed this weekend that this particular story actually had some truth to it.

On Sunday night, the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey aired in the U.K. and included many emotional and revealing moments from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. During his one-on-one time with Prince Harry, interviewer Tom Bradby asked the Duke about the current state of his relationship with William amid reports of tension between the men.

“Part of this role and part of this job, this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, inevitably stuff happens,” said Harry. “But look, we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers. We’re certainly on different paths at the moment but I’ll always be there for him and as I know he’ll always be there for me.”

Noting that the pair aren’t as close as they once were, Harry continued, saying “We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy, but I love him dearly. The majority of this stuff is created out of nothing, but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days.” So, there you have it. The Princes are brothers who don’t always get along. Royals; they’re just like us!

The new documentary also included an interview with Harry’s wife Meghan Markle, who spoke candidly about the pressure of being the newest member of the royal family. Speaking with Bradby, Meghan said that her British friends warned her against becoming involved with Prince Harry knowing the aggressive nature of their country’s media. “In all fairness, I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand and hear,” said Meghan remembering when she and Harry began dating in 2016. “But when I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy but my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.'”

Meghan said that at the time she didn’t understand their concern. “And I very naively — I’m American. We don’t have that there — [I said,] ‘What are you talking about? That doesn’t make any sense. I’m not in any tabloids. I didn’t get it. So it’s been, yeah, it’s been complicated.”

Markle added that since becoming a royal she’s attempted to employ the ‘stiff upper lip’ coping mechanism but thinks it has damaging results, admitting that she’s not okay. Earlier this month the couple launched a lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday for what they call ‘relentless propaganda.’

The full documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey will air on Wednesday, October 23 in North America.
