A close friend of Prince Harry's has confirmed he and Prince William will be seeing each other in July this year and will need to "come together" and "rebuild that communication".

Dean Stott spoke to TMZ about how Harry and wife Meghan Markle have been dealing with the fallout from the interview with Oprah Winfrey and why it's important for Harry to start speaking regularly with his brother again.

William shocked on Thursday when he revealed he hadn't spoken to Harry since the interview aired, a sign of their reported rift.

"I haven't spoken to him yet but I will do," William told reporters while visiting a school in east London.


When asked by a reporter if the royal family is racist, William said: "We're very much not a racist family."

Dean believes the brothers will repair their relationship in coming months, as they are scheduled to attend events in July in honour of their late mother Princess Diana.

"I think Harry had mentioned at the end of his interview that there's going to be space between him and his brother," Dean told the website. "Obviously, what's come out this week - they need to rebuild that communication and they need to obviously come together and they ought to move forward."

"I know in July, Harry will be going back to unveil a memorial for his mother and his brother will be there at that event, so obviously there needs to be dialogue between the guys. You know, all families, all brothers and siblings fall out," he added.

TMZ's Harvey Levin asked Dean if he knew of the conversation that was had at the Palace with Harry about the colour of Archie's skin.

"I was aware of some of the things, that I wasn't aware of and that was one that shocked me," Dean responded.

Harvey followed up by questioning whether Harry had told Dean who was involved in that conversation around his son's skin colour, Dean said he had no idea.
