Princes Harry and William used to be "inseparable" before "bitterness" ruined their bond, a royal source claimed.
Arthur Edwards has been a photographer for The Sun since 1975 and watched the royal brothers grow up before their relationship took a turn for the worse – and now he believes reconciliation may be off the table.
"I went everywhere with them," Edwards, author of Behind the Crown: My Life Photographing the Royal Family, told Fox News Digital.

"They were just sensational. They were like rock stars. The kids were crazy for them."
Edwards also recalled that while Harry's wife Meghan Markle initially appeared to settle into the royal family, things started to change after she became pregnant with Archie – and said the Duke of Sussex "completely changed".
"Meghan was brilliant. She was doing selfies with them, signing autographs, posing – she was just having a fabulous time with the people.
"They went everywhere and people loved them. But then towards the end, when she became pregnant, it changed. It was less fun.
"And then the last tour, it was just miserable. [Harry] completely changed. He cut himself off from the media.
"One day he just stopped talking to us. He just cut us all dead."

And it wasn't just the Duke of Sussex who totally transformed – his relationship with his brother, William, has never been the same since Harry walked away from his royal duties.
"The brothers were so close," Edwards added.
"They did everything together. They were absolutely inseparable.
"There’s a bitterness now that wasn’t there before. I remember watching them play football together, ride horses together – they were always together.
"At the moment, I can’t see them reconciling, but I’ve got my fingers crossed."
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex seemed to have a very different account of their life as working royals, which they discussed in their new Netflix documentary, Harry & Meghan.
The pair made a series of bombshell claims against the Royal Family, including that William had shouted at his little brother and "terrified" him, and lies had been told to protect other members of the Firm at the expense of the couple.
"It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me and my father say things that simply weren’t true, and my grandmother quietly sit there and sort of take it all in," Harry said.
Edwards said he was surprised to hear the couple's version of events and said he watched Meghan receive a warm welcome when she married Harry.
"I sometimes sympathise with Meghan [because] there were pretty tough things being written about her. Some of it was over the top.
"But that’s the problem of being a royal bride," he added.

"I remembered when Diana struggled. I remembered when the Duchess of York struggled.
"But Meghan seemed to adapt quickly. It was difficult to understand why things would be so upsetting."
Speaking of the pair's relationship with the remaining royals, Edwards said a reunion looked unlikely – but that King Charles would always love his son.
"William must be incredibly unhappy with the way his brother is talking about the family," Edwards added.
"I just hope they can fix it. But at the moment, it looks highly unlikely.
"[King Charles] loves them. You never stop loving your son.
"I imagine the king still loves him desperately and would love to see him back. The king would have him back tomorrow."
