The Duke of Cambridge is reportedly "worried" about his younger brother The Duke of Sussex, following a remarkably honest and emotional interview he gave as part of the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired in the UK on Sunday evening.
The documentary, which followed the Sussexes' recent tour of southern Africa, featured rare one-on-one interviews with Harry and Meghan who opened up about how the constant media scrutiny has affected them, admitting they were struggling behind-the-scenes.
Talking to the BBC, a Kensington Palace source has revealed Prince William is worried about Harry and Meghan and hopes they "are all right", after Harry spoke candidly about how the media presence has affected his mental health – admitting it takes him "straight back" to how he felt following the tragic death of his mother Princess Diana.
According to the BBC the source down-played suggestions that Prince William was angry with his brother after the documentary aired.
In the documentary, Prince Harry also finally addressed the rumours of a rift between himself and William, saying just like all siblings the two have their "good days" and their "bad days".
When asked by ITV News presenter Tom Bradby whether there was any truth in the 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," Harry said.
"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 used to, because we're 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 and you have bad days."

Prince Harry also spoke of how he wants to protect Meghan from being hounded by the press like his mother Princess Diana was, telling Bradby: "I will not be bullied into a game that was responsible for killing my mother," Harry said.
"So everything that [Princess Diana] went through, and what happened to her, is incredibly important every single day, and that is not me being paranoid, that is just me not wanting a repeat of the past."
He added, "Part of this job, and part of any job… means putting on a brave face, but for me and my wife, there is a lot of stuff that hurts, especially when the majority of it is untrue."
Harry & Megan: An African Journey airs Monday 28 October, 7pm on TVNZ 1.
