Sharon Osbourne has insisted the idea of a reunion for Prince Harry and Prince William is ‘a load of old b*****ks’.
The 70-year-old presenter has weighed in on comments made by the Duke of Sussex in an interview due to air on ITV News this weekend in which he admitted he wanted to ‘get his father back’ and to ‘have his brother back’ in his life.
In different outtakes from the interview, he says: ‘It never needed to be this way. The leaking and the planting’, before adding: ‘I want a family not an institution. They feel as though it is better to keep us, somehow, as the villains.
‘They have shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile. I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back.’
The idea of a reunion was brought up during a discussion on TalkTV on Thursday night, and Sharon made it clear she doesn’t expect a reconciliation.
She said: ‘What a load of old b*****ks, because that is never going to happen!’

The interview will come a day before Harry’s autobiography Spare is due to hit shelves, which in turn follows the success of the tell-all Netflix documentary series Harry & Meghan in which the duke and duchess opened up about the fallout from their decision to step down as working royals.
In the book, Harry is said to brand his brother his ‘arch-nemesis’, according to a quote revealed by Good Morning America host Michael Strahan.
He released a short clip from a one-on-one interview with Harry, which is due to air in full on Monday morning.
In the short seconds-long glimpse at the sit-down chat, Strahan is heard telling him: ‘There’s a quote in the book where your refer to your brother as your “beloved brother and arch-nemesis”. Strong words. What did you mean by that?’
Harry responds: ‘There has always been this competition between us, weirdly. I think it really plays into or always played by the “heir/spare.” ‘
