Prince Harry (opens in new tab) has been speaking out about the lack of support he and wife Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) received from the rest of the royal family—and Prince William (opens in new tab) reportedly isn't a fan.

A source close to the Duke of Cambridge (opens in new tab) told the Mail on Sunday that William is "greatly concerned" about the fact that Harry has continued to speak publicly about the issue.

"Prince William fears his brother’s 'truth-bombing' will go a step too far and further damage relations with the Royal Family," the Daily Mail (opens in new tab) wrote. 

The "great concern" in question is apparently in response to Harry's latest discussion with Oprah Winfrey (opens in new tab) on The Me You Can’t See (opens in new tab)in which Harry alluded to "shame" the royal family may have felt when he and Meghan came to them for support with mental health issues.

"As parents, as siblings, certainly from what I’ve learned, there’s an element of shame we feel because we’re like, 'How could we not have seen it?'" he said on the show during a segment with Glenn Close (opens in new tab). "But we all know when people are suffering and people are struggling that we’re all incredibly good at covering it up."

According to the Daily Mail report, a royal source says that Buckingham Palace has "concerns rather than fears" that Harry and Meghan (opens in new tab) may make more allegations against the royal family.
