William allegedly cuts ties with reporter pal over Harry rift

Prince William has fallen out with a longtime reporter pal after he sided with Prince Harry amid the brothers’ much-publicized rift, royal sources have claimed.

The heir to the throne is believed to have cut off Brit Tom Bradby, who hosts ITV’s “News At Ten,” as he has become increasingly close to Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.

Bradby spoke to the Sussexes during their Southern Africa tour in 2019, where Harry first admitted to a fall-out with his brother — and Markle revealed just how unhappy she was in her royal life.

“William can’t trust Tom,” a source told Page Six. “Tom has tried to be friends with both Harry and William, but to my mind it doesn’t come across like Tom is an honest broker.

“The brothers don’t need some person in the middle — without knowing if they can trust them — when they can speak to each other directly.”

Both William and Harry grew friendly with Bradby when he worked as ITV’s royal correspondent.

Bradby was even given the first interview with William and Kate Middleton upon their engagement in November 2010.

His wife Claudia worked with Kate — now the Duchess of Cambridge — at Brit fashion brand Jigsaw.

Kate worked there briefly as an assistant accessories buyer before her engagement.

However, a palace source told the Daily Mail on Wednesday: “William is a sensitive soul and believes it’s in times of crisis when you find out who your true friends are.

“It would be fair to say Bradby hasn’t been one of them.”

The source claimed certain Palace staff are “even angrier” at Bradby’s allegedly “pro-Harry and Meghan” reporting of their dramatic exit from the royal family.

Bradby is also believed to have worked to get the UK rights to the Oprah Winfrey interview — even though rival broadcaster BBC refused to air the interview.

“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,” the source added.

Bradby’s reps did not respond to calls for comment. ITCV declined a request, and a rep for the Sussexes was unavailable for comment.
