When Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, stepped back as working Royals and moved to America, William didn't just lose a brother, he lost his best friend. To this day, he cannot forgive Harry, not least because of the consequences for his wife, Kate, and for their children.

And it will be down to the future King William and Queen Catherine to provide the answers.

WORLD CUP 2022 INVESTIGATION BY NICK HARRIS: The Mail on Sunday can reveal that the deaths of 2,823 foreigners of working age in Qatar have gone unexplained - or 'unclassified' to use the official term - since 2011. The MoS has asked the Qatari government how many of these individuals worked on infrastructure projects with 2022 deadlines, such as roads, hotels and transport hubs that will be used by World Cup visitors, and we have been given no details. We are not suggesting that all these deaths were World Cup-related, nor even work-related; the figure includes migrants from around the world working across all industries. But as to whether the true number of work-related fatalities on World Cup projects is just three - as the Supreme Committee insists - or thousands, as advocacy groups such as Human Rights Watch have claimed, serious questions remain unanswered. The Mail on Sunday has also collated hundreds of case studies involving migrant workers who died working on infrastructure projects since 2011 - revealing their personal details and the circumstances of their death for the first time.
