Prince William is reportedly concerned about his younger brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle following their ITV documentary.
A palace source told the BBC Online that William was “worried” about Harry after he opened up about his mental health in the documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.
The source added that William hoped his brother and Meghan are “all right” and that the Royal Family fear that Harry and Meghan are in a “fragile place.”
But the source also played down reports that William was “furious” over his brother’s claims made in the documentary.
Prince Harry and Meghan made several concerning comments during the ITV special, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.
Harry addressed the alleged rift between him and his older brother, William, and confessed that the two were “on different paths.”
Admitting that he and William had “good days” as well as “bad days”, he continued to say they would ultimately always be there for one another.
He said: “We are brothers. We will always be brothers. We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me."
Harry also said that while he had originally thought his mental health struggles were behind him, he still faced some difficulties.
He said: “I thought I was out of the woods and then suddenly it all came back and I realised that this is something that I have to manage.
"Part of this job, part of any job, means putting on a brave face and turning a cheek to a lot of stuff. For me and my wife there's a lot of stuff that hurts.

“But all we need to do is focus on being real, and focus on being the people that we are, and standing up for what we believe in. I will not be bullied into playing a game that killed my mum.”
Meghan talked too of struggling to cope with her new duties as a royal and the scrutiny of the media.
Speaking to the documentary’s narrator Tom Bradby, Meghan said she had had "naivety" in terms of what to expect from the British press.
She said: “It's hard. I don't think anybody can understand that. In all fairness, I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand, but when I first met Harry, my friends were so excited, my US friends were happy because I was happy.
"But my British friends, they were sure he was lovely, but they said I shouldn't do it because 'the British tabloids will destroy your life'.
"Because I'm American I very naively didn't get it. It's complicated. I never thought that this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair and that's the part that's really hard to reconcile.”
When broadcaster Tom asked if it was fair to say she was “not really Okay”, she agreed that she wasn’t.
