Prince William and Harry's relationship has come under strain in recent months, with a new royal book dropping the biggest bombshell yet.
In January Prince Harry, 36, and wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, 39, made the controversial decision to give up their roles as senior working members of the Royal Family in order to live a financially independent lifestyle in Los Angeles.
A move that hadn't been seen since the abdication of King Edward which shattered the monarchy.
Now, a new book, Battle of Brothers claims that Harry and Meghan's decision tore through the Windsor family, "betraying" Her Majesty The Queen, 94.
Prince William, 38, is believed to have been distraught after Harry and Meghan made their announcement via social media, before telling the family.
Following their controversial announcement, the Royal Family organised a swift meeting at the Queen's home in Sandringham to talk about their future.
Despite the Queen inviting everybody to eat lunch together as a family before the "Sandringham Summit", Prince William is said to have refused and only wanted to attend the meeting.

Royal author Robert Lacey penned: "The Queen had suggested the family should gather for lunch before their big pow-wow in the library that afternoon, but he refused his grandmother's invitation.
"He would obviously turn up at 2pm for the meeting, he said, but he only wanted to talk business."
Addressing the rage William felt towards his brother, Lacey added: "The Prince himself has not confirmed his friends' speculation that he was so furious with his younger brother that he would not be able to endure the hypocrisy of smiling at him over lunch."
Sources say that this is one of the last times both William and Harry spoke to one another.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Lacey, a former journalist said that the feud between the two brothers could in fact be worse than the abdication or the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
If this breach between the brothers is not healed in some way it will come to stand with the Abdication crisis and the death of Diana as one of the traumas that changed the monarchy."

Since their resignation, Harry and Meghan have begun working with Netflix and live in Los Angeles.
