Prince William and Prince Harry were allegedly denied grief counselling by the Queen following the death of Princess Diana, according to bombshell allegations in a new book.
Prince Charles reportedly approached the Queen to ask about grief counselling for his sons shortly after their mother’s funeral.
The Queen initially agreed to the request but was later allegedly “talked out of it” by some of Her Majesty’s advisors.
The claims have been made in Christopher Andersen's new book ‘Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan’.
Buckingham Palace has labelled the book as "without authority or credibility".
In the book, a St. James’s Palace staffer reveals Prince Charles is said to have approached the Queen regarding counselling for William and Harry.
The staffer said: “The Queen initially agreed that it was a good idea but was talked out of it.”
The Queen’s advisors allegedly persuaded Her Majesty that it “would simply not look good at the moment” Royal Family members “to be seen to have mental health issues.”
Andersen wrote in the book that William was reportedly getting the message from Charles of "let’s get on with it".
