PRINCE Harry is said to have bluntly rejected brother Prince William's offer for a heart-to-heart meeting, a new book has revealed.
The relationship between the Royal duo, Prince Harry and Prince William, is reported to have reached an all-time low.
However, despite the recent tensions it's been said the two siblings have attempted to resolve the issues in the past before things escalated even further.
But a new book has claimed that the youngest of the duo, the 39-year-old Prince Harry, rejected a meeting between him and Prince William, 41, with two simple words, OK! reported.
Prince Harry first hinted at a feud during a 2019 interview, which aired months before they stepped back from Royal duties, a move that later became known as Megxit.

According to the book Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown, after the interview aired, William tried to reach out to Harry.
But although initally Harry appeared to be open to the proposal, he later decided to decline it due to fears the meeting would be leaked by Royal staff.
Author Valentine Low said: "The day after the documentary aired, William WhatsApped his brother to ask if he could come and see him. Initially, Harry was in favour.
"Then he spoke to his brother again and asked him whom he would tell. William explained that he'd have to clear his schedule, which would mean telling his private secretary.

The book revealed that the ultimate failure to meet in person was "heart-breaking" for those close to the Royal duo.
Although the brothers used to share a close bond growing up, the relationship has been strained for some time now.
According to experts, the tension reportedly started before Harry married the former Suits star and actress, Meghan Markle, as Harry felt as if William was being snobbish towards his wife-to-be.
Unfortunately, things got even worse after the late Queen's death in 2022, following the accusations Harry made against William in his memoir, Spare, as well as his documentary on Netflix.
In his bombshell royal autobiography, Harry made sensational claims, accusing William of physically attacking him and pushing him into a dog bowl during an argument over Meghan.
Harry also revealed how his dad, King Charles, pulled the two for a chat after Prince Philip's funeral, pleading: "Please, boys. Don't make my final years a misery."
