It goes without saying that it's been a rocky year for Prince William and Prince Harry's relationship.

The brothers had a falling out and reportedly weren't even speaking at one point in 2019, but the birth of Harry's son, Archie, seemed to ease the tension between them. However, now that Harry and Meghan Markle have blindsided Will and the rest of the royal family with their bombshell announcement last week, things are back to being complicated.

According to The Times, William privately broke his silence on the drama to an unnamed friend, and his comments are truly heartbreaking.

“I’ve put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can’t do that any more; we’re separate entities,” he told his pal, adding that he does have hope for the future. "All we can do, and all I can do, is try and support them and hope that the time comes when we’re all singing from the same page. I want everyone to play on the team."

A resolution regarding Meghan and Harry's future should be reached soon. Queen Elizabeth called an emergency family meeting, in which herself, Harry, Will, and the boys' father, Prince Charles will come face-to-face to discuss the avenues for a potential separation. A source explained that "there is a range of possibilities for the family to review" at the summit, and that a final decision will be made in "days not weeks."

"Next steps will be agreed at the meeting,” the insider told People. “The request for this to be resolved ‘at pace’ is still Her Majesty’s wish. The aim remains days not weeks. There is genuine agreement and understanding that any decision will take time to be implemented."

Another source told ET that despite everyone's hurt feelings, the family (including William) only want what's best for Meghan and Harry. "All of the parties are trying to find a workable solution," the insider explained. "William is upset, understandably. There was a lot of hurt to go around but people want to get this fixed and are working together."
