Leaked extracts of Prince Harry’s all-revealing book have been reported in the press, including the time he wore a Nazi costume, a revelation that he had a frostbitten penis at his brother’s wedding, as well as claims of a physical altercation with William. That’s not including the confession that he has killed 25 Taliban fighters, and the belief his mother, Diana, faked her own death.

Further details are still emerging from interviews airing in the US. Among them, Harry calls Camilla “a villain” and “dangerous”, as well as claiming he wasn’t invited to fly to Balmoral with the family after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Harry told Good Morning America it would be “very sad” if reconciliation with his family doesn’t happen. But could some of these bombshells be too much to surmount?

Last week, prior to the latest revelations, we asked: Is there any way back for William and Harry?

@mannion_tony pointed the finger, tweeting: “I think one of them is doing his utmost to ensure they don’t.”

@Judythedoglover doubted they saw it in their best interests: “Why??? I think they enjoy the ‘game’ of sticks and stones..focuses the "poor me ’syndrome on them and the royal family...any publicity is good publicity..”

On Instagram, amir_hessam doesn’t think he’s going about it the right way: “Harry is a lost cause. You have a family dispute resolve it in private. Not in the public eye”.

But fellow Instagram user k_church1 was more optimistic: “Of course. Brothers fight and make up all the time. One person has to humbly make the first move.”

On Facebook, Margaret Mba also holds out hope: “Yes there is, have seen worst situations yet they got back together. Blood is thicker than water, I think it’s more like does the haters want them to get back together, the answer is no. Haters thrive on negativity so will fuel the situation so that they never get back together.”

Meanwhile, Andrew Manzi says there’s only one person for the job: “Get Jerry Springer on the phone!!!”
