'Harry is under intense pressure to choose. It is sad,' a source close to the prince told The Times.
'He loves the Queen. He loves this country. He loves all his military stuff and I think it will genuinely break his heart to leave. I don't think that's what he really wants. I think they want some halfway house.'
As for Meghan, 'She wants to leave,' the source explained. 'She thinks: "It's not working for me."'
It's believed the Cambridges have been competitive with the Sussexes since Meghan arrived on the scene in 2016, however both camps deny this.
Over the weekend, a friend of William's told of the heartbreak after he was blindsided by Harry and Meghan's announcement to resign from 'senior' royal duties.
'I've put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can't do that any more; we're separate entities,' Wills told a friend, according to the Sunday Times.
He added, 'I'm sad about that. All we can do, and all I can do, is try and support them and hope the time comes when we're all singing from the same page. I want everyone to play on the same team.'
