Prince William and Prince Harry's royal rift began after a simple five-word question, according to an expert.
The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex have been warring for years and sources claim the pair barely speak, with Harry now living in California and his brother the heir to the throne.
Harry even once admitted to friend and ITV news presenter Tom Bradby: "We're certainly on different paths."

He added: "Part of this role and part of this job, and this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, inevitably, you know, stuff happens.
"But look, we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers. And we’re certainly on different paths at the moment, but I’ll always be there for him, as I know he’ll always be there for me."
Sussex pal and royal biographer Omid Scobie and co-author Carolyn Durand have now lifted the lid on the feuding brothers' row, claiming it began with a simple question.
It's thought the siblings' already fraught relationship reached a new low after Harry became engaged to Meghan Markle in November 2017.
According to the Telegraph, William took his brother aside and said: “Are you sure about this?”

A source previously told the Sun Harry "went ballistic and said: 'You’re trying to wreck this relationship before it’s even started.'"
Meanwhile other sources have claimed William and his wife, Kate Middleton, "did not make Meghan feel particularly welcome" after she moved to the UK.
"You have to remember that Kate and Harry were always very close too," said one insider.
"It wasn’t a rivalry between the brothers but more a sense that they would be competing over who would lead on their various issues."
Harry and Meghan stepped down as working royals in January 2020 and briefly moved to Canada before relocating to Montecito.
They live there with their two children, Archie and Lilibet, and have been attempting to make their own way in the world with a series of lucrative media contracts.
However, after their deal with Spotify was dropped the couple are now thought to be reconsidering their options – and one source even said the pair had discussed a royal return.
"Harry and Meghan have secretly reached out to Harry’s brother, Prince William, to discuss the possibility of returning to the Royal Family," the source told InTouch Weekly.
It is unclear where the Royal Family stand on allowing the pair back to Buckingham Palace after their media successes focused squarely on slamming the institution and some of its members.
But the source guessed William would consider allowing Harry to rejoin the family.
They added: "He will agree to let Harry come back but not as a 'part-time royal'."
