Prince Harry and Prince William "wouldn't have fallen out so badly" if Princess Diana was alive because she would have "quickly found a resolution," her former bodyguard has claimed.
Ken Wharfe, who guarded Princess Diana, said the late royal "wouldn't have allowed" Prince Harry and Prince William's argument "to escalate" to the point that it did.
His comment comes after insiders said plans for a new Princess Diana statue "would help to heal old wounds" before the pair reunite in the UK next year for the Rugby League World Cup.
Wharfe said the late royal had "tremendous influence" over the boys, and added: "If she could see the brothers at war, she'd be very upset about it."
Speaking to Vanity Fair, the former protection officer said: "She'd have quickly instigated a resolution.
"I don’t think Harry and Meghan would have left Kensington Palace if Diana was still around."
He explained the new Princess Diana statute the boys have funded to mark their mothers 60th birthday next month, is a fitting tribute to Diana.
The statue will stand in the Sunken Gardens of Buckingham Palace as a tribute to Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris on the 31st August 1997.
Wharf called the placement of the statue "very fitting," adding that it was "a place Diana loved and enjoyed" taking the children.

He went on: "Diana definitely would've got Harry and William together and made them work through their issues."
