If “tomorrow is Prince William's Super Bowl, then here's your halftime show,” Omid Scobie quipped on Twitter by sharing the trailer.

William, heir to the crown, has been notoriously at odds with his brother since last year they revealed with Meghan that a member of the 'Firm' questioned their son's skin color before he was born. , Archie.

Since then, the two brothers have only appeared together on rare occasions, the last time in September, a few days after the death of Elizabeth II, in an icy atmosphere at Windsor Castle .

Prince Harry is also due to release his memoir in early January, again promising his share of embarrassing revelations.

The beginning of Prince William's visit to the United States has already been disrupted by a racist controversy at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening. The black head of a charity association claimed that, at a reception, the prince's godmother and close friend of Elizabeth II, Susan Hussey, asked her insistently where she “really came from”. /p>
