Tom Bradby, 54, and Prince William, 38, have reportedly fallen out, according to senior royal sources, after being friends for two decades. It has been said that ITV’s News at Ten host has “annoyed” his friend Prince William by “seeming to side” with his brother Prince Harry and sister-in-law Meghan Markle following their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Mr Bradby has interviewed both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the past.
The journalist is also known to have been close friends with Harry and William.
The royal insider said: “The friendship between William and Tom is very much over.
“The Duke feels let down by Bradby and the way he’s acted over the past few months.

“William is a sensitive soul and believes it’s in times of crisis when you find out who your true friends are.
The source added: “The Duke will, of course, remain cordial and professional in his relations with senior media figures, but that special relationship he once had with Bradby is no more.
“William no longer sees him as a friend.”
The source also claimed some staff at Buckingham Palace believe Mr Bradby’s reporting on ITV News favours the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
They told the Daily Mail: “Some staff at the Palaces are even angrier about Bradby and the tone of his reporting at ITV News, which they consider to be pro-Harry and Meghan.
“It’s well-known Bradby personally communicates with Harry on a regular basis and that is pretty obvious to royal aides who know how things work.
“But it’s been very difficult to accept given the long history between Bradby and William.”

A spokeswoman for ITV News told the publication: “Unfortunately at this moment we won’t be in a position to comment.”
Bradby was also host of an ITV documentary filmed in South Africa in 2019 when Meghan opened up about her struggles in the royal family.
She said in the film: “Not many people have asked if I’m okay.
“It’s a very real thing to go through behind the scenes…it has really been a struggle.”
Harry also confirmed in the documentary that he and William were “on different paths at the moment”.
William previously showcased his friendship with Bradby as he was chosen to conduct the November 2010 engagement exclusive interview with him and wife Kate Middleton.
Bradby also attended the couple’s wedding at Westminster Abbey as a guest.
A spokesman for William said at the time: “The couple asked to record this interview specifically with Mr Bradby, whom they have both known for some time.”
