Upcoming book, Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult written by author and British historian, Robert Lacey, suggests that Prince William, 38, may be at fault for the divide between the two princes after complaints about Meghan Markle, 39, were filed.

US Weekly reported that "Prince William went ballistic when he heard the 'dossier of distress' that [former communications secretary Jason] Knauf had gathered."

Lacey's book reportedly claims not only that the Duke of Cambridge believed the former actress had an "agenda" in regards to her relationship with Prince Harry, but also that she was "undermining some precious principles of the monarchy".

Prince William isn't the only Royal family member fuming about the situation. Sources say that Prince Harry is angry and hurt that his older brother is willing to listen to Royal staff over the words of his own family members, but apparently duty and title may win out for the elder Royal.

Lacey continued, referring to Prince William, "At the end of the day the British crown and all it stood for with it's ancient traditions, styles and values – the mission of the monarchy – had to matter more to William than his brother did."

The relationship between the brothers continued to spiral out of control, and Lacey stated that eventually, "William simply did not want her or Harry around anymore." The shocking snippet of the forthcoming book went on, noting that Markle and Prince Harry's move from Kensington Palace was potentially Prince William's doing as well.

"William wished to be separated from Meghan on a day-to-day basis – and that meant being separated from his brother as well." Lacey noted in the bombshell excerpt that William even said that a friend of his 'threw Harry out' at one point.

Determined to set the record straight, a representative of the Duchess of Sussex made a statement denying that Markle was responsible for the accusations against her of bullying and purposefully causing strife within the Royal family.

"The Duchess is saddened by the latest attack on her character, particularly as someone who has been the target of bullying herself and is deeply committed to supporting those who have experienced pain and trauma," the rep told Us Weekly this past March.

The rep also made sure to note to The Times that the bullying accusations were nothing more than a "smear campaign", and that the claims were based entirely on "misleading and harmful misinformation".

Any hope of patching things up between the royal brother's seems unlikely any time soon. Prince Harry may have hammered the nails into the coffin when he blew the lid off his family's dirty laundry amid his candid interviews in his CBS tell-all.

Another source told Us Weekly that "William feels that Harry should discuss his issues privately and can't comprehend why he continues to shade his own flesh and blood on TV." The source also mentioned, "There's no way they'll ever trust him after this. The damage is done."

Robert Lacey's new book, Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult is slated to be released on June 24.
