Royal expert and biographer Tim Ewart made the sensational claim, according to Newidea.com.au. Mr Ewart was ITV News’ royal editor. The broadcaster revealed details about the “real Prince William” during a 2015 BBC documentary, ‘Reinventing the Royals’.
Mr Ewart, who was as part of the team covering the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, revealed Kate, the Duchess Cambridge’s husband was “not quite the warm and fuzzy” character during the royal couple’s first major public engagement in Australia in 2014.
He said: “These are the first people I’ve ever covered who will not speak to me at all.
“More than that, the people who represent them will brief me about their movements, about where I can go and where I stand.
“But they won’t tell me anything about what these people think.”

The documentary also claimed some Australian journalists were “not so comfortable” around the Cambridge couple.
Daily Telegraph columnist, Sarrah Le Marquand, said: “The affection William enjoys in Australia is because the Australian public genuinely thinks the affection is mutual.”
Ms Le Marquand also claimed the father-of-three is “very standoffish” in character.
She said: “For all of his easy-going facade, Prince William is obviously a very controlling character.”
Prince William and Catherine will be formally dividing their royal household, Kensington Palace, from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex ahead of the birth of Meghan and Harry’s first baby.

The Sussexes are due to move away from Kensington Palace to their new home in Frogmore, the Queen’s 33-acre estate in the grounds of Windsor’s Home Park.
They will live there in a 10-bedroom bolthole, which has been refurbished ahead of their arrival.
The exact due date of their baby is not known but it is expected to be born sometime in the spring.
Speaking about the arrival of the royal tot, an excited Kate said: “It’s such a special time to all have kiddies.
“And a cousin for George and Charlotte as well, and Louis. So it will be really special.”
