As Prince William allegedly puts an end to a friendship spanning two decades with Tom Bradby because he is Team Sussex – here are some of the other Royal friendships which have crumbled under scandal.
The host of ITV News at 10 reportedly sided with Meghan and Harry in the increasingly bitter "war of the Windsors" that was sparked after the infamous Oprah Winfrey interview, Mail Online reports.
William, who once had regular calls with Bradby, has since reportedly cut ties.
Many friendships have been left in the ashes after the burn of a scandal – and here's just a few of them.
Princess Margaret and Princess Diana
Piers Morgan demands Meghan Markle reveal royal behind her explosive race claim
Princess Margaret and Princess Diana had shared a close friendship in the early years of the Princess of Wales settling in her new role.
But the Queen's youngest sister allegedly cut Diana out of her life after she "betrayed the Queen's trust" by discussing her fraught relationship with Prince Charles in public.
The Countess of Snowdon had proven her commitment to the Crown through several personal sacrifices and had hoped Diana would do the same.
But according to her biographer Christopher Warwick, Margaret could not forgive the Princess of Wales for "betraying" the monarchy by going public with the details of the relationship breakdown.
Meghan Markle and Jessica Mulroney
Prince William shouted 'The King is in the house' in Ibiza DJ set, Kate's uncle claims
Jessica and Meghan were once best friends but last year after one 'hugely offensive' scandal, sources told US weekly that their attachment had been severed.
The Duchess of Sussex was reportedly 'distraught and absolutely done' with the stylist's white privilege scandal, in which, Mulroney is said to have made 'tone-deaf comments' towards influencer Sasha Exeter.
Exeter had posted a 12-minute long video calling for action from fellow bloggers during the Black Lives Matter protesting of 2020, where Mulroney allegedly took offence and "wrongly assumed" the post was directed at her.
Sources said: "Meghan could not get over that Jessica brought up her relationship with Meghan when she commented about her ‘closest friend’ in the discourse with Sasha. That was hugely offensive to Meghan and the deciding factor for her. Meghan considers the relationship to be done."
However, it is believed the pair were already growing apart before that but Jessica claims that there was no damage done.
Sarah Ferguson and Diana (AGAIN)
Prince William 'ends 20-year friendship' with ITV's Tom Bradby for 'siding with Harry'
Princess Diana lost many friends as her marriage to Charles went sour – but this Royal dispute is seemingly even pettier than that.
The former Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, published a book telling an unflattering story that reportedly left Diana angry and upset.
My Story, published in 1996, recorded an anecdote about the Princess of Wales, where Fergie got a verruca after borrowing a pair of Diana’s shoes. The pair never spoke again.
In 2018, Fergie revealed that she had always wanted to repair the friendship between them but tragically Diana died before she had the chance.
