“But obviously William has got to do something about it. He spoke to his brother and said, ‘Let’s make a combined effort here.’

Fans were surprised to see the royal brothers reunite outside Windsor Castle

“They did it because if Meghan had turned up for the funeral on Monday all the papers would be talking about Meghan and the King does not want that. He wants it all about The Queen and nothing else. No distractions. Whether they will get back together who knows, there is a big rift between the brothers.”

“The man I’ve been working with… He’s a fantastic person. He knows everybody in the world, every Prime Minister, every Head of State. He’s so well connected. He’s travelled the world. We were in Rwanda in June with all the heads of government there and they all pay great homage to him.”

Arthur continued: “The reason I still work, Piers, is because I work with this man and The Queen, the new Queen Camilla. They are just fabulous people. I really enjoy it. If I’ve got a job with say the King, the next one will probably be on Wednesday when they follow the coffin. I will look to him, but he will be solid.”
