Ahead of Meghan Markle's Oprah interview the relationship between Princes Harry and William has hit a 'potentially terminal' point according to one Royal commentator.

Royal commentator Peter Hunt has said there is a "serious, potentially terminal determination in the relationship between William and Harry."

He told LBC's Eddie Mair that this was being "played out by the brothers and by their proxies."

When Eddie asked what has brought things to this level, Mr Hunt said he thought it was "that interview" that has brought the situation to this point.

The comments come after the Duchess of Sussex has said she is not afraid of speaking out, accusing the Royal family of "perpetuating falsehoods".

Meghan makes the comments in the latest trailer for her and Prince Harry's Oprah Winfrey interview.
