Prince Harry and Prince William were allegedly feuding due to Meghan Markle, but other sources claimed that there was another reason.
Prince William and Prince Harry were very close growing up. In fact, when the Duke of Cambridge started dating Kate Middleton, Prince Harry was their third wheel.
However, when Meghan Markle joined the picture, the fab four that the public expected didn’t happen. Instead, Prince Harry decided to have a separate household from his older brother.
Prince William and Prince Harry feuding
Prince William didn’t rush her romance with Kate Middleton. In fact, he waited for almost a decade before he proposed to the duchess. The long wait on Middleton’s part earned her the moniker “Waity Katie.”
Meanwhile, the Duke of Cambridge felt that Prince Harry and Markle’s romance was too fast. Being a protective older brother, Prince William voiced his concerns to his sibling.
However, Prince Harry reportedly went mental after hearing it. The Duke of Sussex allegedly accused Prince William of ruining his relationship with Markle, Daily Mail reported.
An insider said that following the incident, their relationship never recovered. That is reportedly the reason Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s sons aren’t as close as before.
Frosty relationship due to infidelity
In 2019, there were speculations that Prince William cheated on his wife with Rose Hanbury. British writer and TV presenter Giles Coren confirmed the affair.
“yes. it is an affair. i haven’t read the piece but i know about the affair. everyone knows about the affair darling,” he wrote on Twitter.
The post had been deleted but not until someone captured a screenshot of it.
Journalist Nicolle Cliffe shared her thoughts about the issue. According to her, Prince William told his brother Prince Harry of his infidelity, and the latter disapproved of it causing the rift. Thus, their beef had nothing to do with Meghan Markle.
“Here’s where my personal editorializing kicks in: this is the actual reason that Wills and Harry have been ‘frosty’ for the last several months. It’s had NOTHING to do with Meghan,” Cliffe wrote.
“Wills would absolutely have told Harry about the affair, bc of how those two are, and I think that Harry was like ‘this is exactly what ruined our childhoods, this is pulling some Dad [explicit], you have three small children, what the [explicit]?’” she added.
Just like Coren, Cliffe also deleted her series of tweets about the issue.

A reporter claimed that Prince Harry was leaning on George Clooney because he sees the latter as a big brother figure. However, according to royal biographer Katie Nicholl, they have already reconnected.
On May 14, Prince William mentioned Prince Harry for the first time in months on his post on Instagram. The post only confirmed that the two princes were indeed on speaking terms already.
