PRINCE William was so angry with Prince Harry's behaviour over Megxit that he "un-brothered" him, a bombshell book claimed today.
The future king was even so furious with his younger brother than he refused to sit through lunch with the 36-year-old before the Sandringham Summit, it was reported.

In an explosive new book, Battle of Brothers, it was claimed the unique bond between Harry and William, 38, had been shattered.
Sources said William was stunned at Harry’s decision to throw away his duty and service to the crown, and furious that the Queen had been backed into a corner.
And author Robert Lacey claimed Harry had spoken to his father Prince Charles and grandmother the Queen about how things could change for himself and his wife in the future.
But he added: "It was a pity that William was now so angry that he was not speaking to him any more. It was as if Harry had become un-brothered."
Other claims in the book include:
- The Royal brother's rift started when Harry announced Megxit without consulting the Queen
- Prince William was so angry with Harry's behaviour it was as if he had "un-brothered" him
- Palace insiders thought Meghan's ITV Africa interview was 'miserably self-indulgent'
- The Sussexes were "non-personed" when the Queen deliberately left Duke and Duchess of Sussex picture off the table during her Christmas speech
- Harry and Meghan gave just ten minutes' notice to the palace over their decision to quit the Royal Family
- The couple's refusal to reveal who Archie godparent's were showed they had an "exaggerated idea of their own importance"
Among William's frustrations were claims that Harry and Meghan had given the palace just ten minutes' notice over their announcement to quit the Royal Family.
Wills, 38, was distraught when they announced in January they were quitting for a life in Canada.
And while he reportedly agreed to keep things civil at the Sandringham Summit, which hammered out the first details of the Megxit deal, he was unwilling to go any further.
Lacey wrote: “The Queen had suggested the family should gather for lunch before their big pow-wow in the library that afternoon, but (William) refused his grandmother’s invitation.
“He would obviously turn up at 2pm for the meeting, he said, but he only wanted to talk business.
“The Prince himself has not confirmed his friends’ speculation that he was so furious with his younger brother that he would not be able to endure the hypocrisy of smiling at him over lunch.”
It was the last time Harry and William spoke at length as aides and courtiers were left to hammer out the finer points of the Megxit terms.
Sources say William was stunned at Harry’s decision to throw away his duty and service to the crown, and furious that the Queen had been backed into a corner.
And within days after Sandringham Summit, Harry joined Meghan in Canada and did not speak with William for the next two months.
When they both returned for “farewell” engagements in March there was no scheduled meeting with William and Kate.
The formerly-tight “Fab Four” exchanged only brief nods of the head and mouthed ‘Hello’ at Westminster Abbey for Commonwealth Day Service on March 9.
A source added: “The only time they saw each other was at the Abbey.”
The author, who wrote a biography of the Queen in the 1970s titled Majesty, believes there is time to heal the rift but that the Palace “is not working in that direction”.
The Sun can reveal that William and Harry have barely spoken in the past few months, other than to wish each other Happy Birthday.
The rift has only worsened as William and Kate have been left carrying out royal engagements during the virus pandemic.
Harry and Meghan have continued to make public announcements on their new life including their multi-million-pound Netflix deal.
In August they revealed they had taken out a mortgage on a nine-bed house in Montecito, California.
