Prince William has taken a 'U-turn' in the Meghan and Harry feud and decided to "play them at their own game", royal experts say.

The Duke of Sussex has reportedly decided to take a different approach to the Queen, whose motto has always been "never complain, never explain".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's racism claims during an interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey sent shockwaves through the Royal Family, with William retorting: "We are not a racist family."

Now a royal expert tells OK! he is dramatically changing tack.

"William might be dreading Harry's next move, but he's prepared for it," our source says.

"He's the future King and is fiercely protective of both Kate and his immediate family, and the wider institution.

"He wants nothing more than for Harry to be happy but is sick of the constant bashing.

"He's taken a real U-turn. He won't just sit back next time Harry goes on the attack."

On Sunday, the Mail on Sunday’s diarist Charlotte Griffiths said William had changed the approach that his grandmother had been taking after the Oprah interview.

"He felt decisive action was needed, that he needed to play them at their own game," she said.

"The smoothing over that the Queen had been doing very diligently, the moment Meghan came on the scene, wasn't paying off at all so William thought he would try a different tack.

"A new picture is emerging that William is much tougher in this situation than we previously thought."

Royal author Duncan Larcombe, who is the former Royal Editor of The Sun and author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, told OK! last week that William is "dreading" Harry and Meghan's next move amid reports that the couple are planning to become "influencers".

Mr Larcombe said that William wanted the couple to stop "cashing in on the royal brand" by "continually talking about the royals".

Meghan and Harry announced they would be stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family early last year.

The couple's former chief of staff this week revealed their long-term plan is to become "social-impact influencers".

"What do they do next? That's a question Prince William is dreading the answer to," Mr Larcombe says.

"Ultimately, they have to find a way to do their work in LA while not trading in on the royal brand.

"Prince Harry hasn't exactly been subtle. He's revealed to the world that he pretty much hates his family and the whole system is rotten to the core, but by continually talking about the royals, they're cashing in on the brand.

"If they spend their whole careers selling that royal brand, they'll never speak to William again."
