Prince Harry has finally addressed the persistent rumours that there is a rift between himself and his brother Prince William.
The new father put paid to the rumours in an interview with ITV News anchor Tom Bradby in the documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Adventure, which screened on ITV on Sunday evening in the UK.
Bradby raised the issue with Harry by saying: "It has been a year of big change, with all the complications that brings.
"This includes the decision to split his office off from that of his brother, to whom he has always been close."
He then asked Harry if there was any truth to speculation of a rift.
Harry replied: "Part of this role and part of this job and this family being under the pressure that it's under inevitably, you know, stuff happens.
"But look, we're brothers. We'll always be brothers.
"We're certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and as I know he'll always be there for me.
"You know, we don't see each other as much as we, as much as we used to because we're so busy.
"But, I love him dearly and, you know, the majority of the stuff is created out of nothing.
"Just as I said, as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days."
The documentary was made during Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex', recent tour of south Africa.
Speculation about the brothers' rift has been circulating for several months, with some saying issues between the two princes arose as early as 2016 when Harry began dating Meghan.
One royal insider revealed that after Harry introduced William to Meghan, William sat Harry down for what was meant to be a brotherly chat and advised him to take things slowly with Meghan because they still knew so little about her.
The advice was not well received.
"Harry... accused his brother of trying to finish his romance before it had begun. The brothers' relationship hasn't really recovered," one insider said.
Speculation was further fuelled when it was announced that Harry and Meghan would be moving out of their cottage at Kensington Palace to live at Frogmore Cottage.
Then it was revealed that they would be splitting their royal households and would even split to form their own royal charities.
Prince Harry also discussed his mother Princess Diana's legacy, explaining: "Being here 22 years later trying to finish what she started will be incredibly emotional but everything that I do reminds me of her. But as I said with the role, with the job, and the sort of pressures that come with that I get reminded of the bad stuff, unfortunately."
Harry and Megan: An African Journey airs Monday 28 October, 7pm on TVNZ 1.
