A once-close relationship between Prince Harry and his brother's son, Prince George, is said to have "suffered" because of rumoured bad blood between the royal siblings.

It is said that the Duke of Sussex had "embraced the role of fun uncle" with Prince George, who celebrates his ninth birthday July 22, and also Princess Charlotte.

But that "free and easy spirit" which garnered him the reputation of being a fun uncle for the nieces and nephews was reportedly strained due to tensions between Harry and Prince William.

One royal expert has alleged that the relationship between George and Harry had "suffered" due to tensions between the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex.

Speaking on the reported warring factions, royal expert Christine-Marie Liwag said: "There's nothing more fun than being an aunt or uncle.

"It certainly seemed like Prince Harry embraced the role of fun uncle. An inside source told the Daily Mail that Kate and Harry really bonded over his 'free and easy' spirit.

"And his attitude came in handy when playing with her kids. The source shared, '[Kate] adores the way Harry plays with her children'.

"'He is very good with them, a charming big kid and silly uncle'."

Expert Liwag added: "But, as you can imagine, things went downhill pretty quickly. And given the rift between Harry and William, Harry's role as an uncle suffered."

Difficulties for the bond between Harry and George appear apparent not just due to the alleged rift between the brothers, but also because Kate Middleton is "fiercely loyal" to her husband, Daily Express reported.

Liwag continued: "According to the 2020 book Finding Freedom, Harry's bond with George and Charlotte suffered as a result of the feud between the brothers.

"The authors also alleged that Kate was 'fiercely loyal' to William. And that even during his feud with Harry, she did 'little to diffuse the situation'."
