The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex are not currently on speaking terms

Prince William had "jealousy" over the success of Prince Harry's Invictus Games, a royal commentator has claimed.

A new documentary, titled Prince Harry's Mission: Life, Family and Invictus Games, is taking a look at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's recent trip to Canada.

Meghan, 42, and Harry, 39, were promoting the 2025 Invictus Games, where the duke also gave an interview with Good Morning America.

Footage from this interview is being used in the new documentary, which will air on ABC News and stream on Hulu, despite the Sussexes signing a lucrative deal with Netflix four years ago.

The documentary will additionally explore the Invictus Games's history as well as Harry's relationship with the Royal Family.

Robert Jobson, a royal commentator, spoke about the adaptive sports competition for veterans and service personnel being the Duke of Sussex's "number one passion project".

During the documentary, Jobson said: "It's been very successful since its outset.

"It doesn't come cheap, it costs a lot of money, and he's been able to continue to raise that money throughout this period, which is impressive.

"But I think there was a degree of jealousy about how well it had gone.

"I do think that William was surprised how much this had been such a success and how much money was being thrown into it and how many governments were getting involved."

The Invictus Games were created in 2014 by Prince Harry under The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

But since the Sussexes stepped down as working royals, Harry's family have not mentioned the Games or attended any of the events.

Royal commentator Victoria Murphy said during the special: "Harry is no longer a working royal.

"Invictus no longer sits under the umbrella of organisations that the Royal Family officially are part of and therefore, they haven't mentioned it at all since Harry stepped back as a working royal."

Murphy added: "I thought it was really interesting not just that William didn't want to see Harry when he came over to the UK, but he was happy for people to know that he had no plans to see him.

"I think that says a lot about how significant those hostilities still are."
