Prince William and Prince Harry are rumored to be feuding. A new book detailed the alleged falling-out between the two princes.
Prince William and Prince Harry were very close growing up. However, the two dukes decided to have a separate household when Prince Harry married Meghan Markle. Since then, there were claims that they were feuding.
A new book entitled Battle Of Brothers: William, Harry And The Inside Story Of A Family In Tumult detailed the alleged falling-out between the two princes.
Prince William allegedly refused to see Prince Harry
Royal biographer Robert Lacey released a new book entitled Battle of Brother, which is serialized in Daily Mail. In the book, he discussed Prince William and Prince Harry’s relationship.
In January, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they were stepping back as senior members of the royal family. According to Lacey, the Queen called them together for a “Sandringham Summit.” However, Prince William allegedly refused to have lunch with Prince Harry beforehand. So, the Duke of Sussex ended up dining with their grandmother alone.
Duke of Cambridge on the Queen’s photographs
There are rumors that Prince Harry and Markle felt blindsided during Queen Elizabeth’s 2019 Christmas speech. They were allegedly hurt that there were no photos of them on the Queen’s desk.
Her Majesty’s desk featured four picture frames – one of her dad and another featuring her husband, Prince Philip. The other two frames featured the Cambridges family and Prince Charles and Camilla.
It was reportedly Prince Charles’ idea to “promote a slimmed-down monarchy.” Prince William allegedly agreed. Palace sources believed the move was a message for the Sussexes, who reportedly started thinking of their future without the monarchy.
The Sussexes decided to extend their Christmas break in Vancouver. Prince Harry had reportedly spoken to his father and grandmother about the changes for himself and his wife in the royal structure before they left London. Prince William was reportedly furious that he decided to stop speaking up with his brother because Harry had become “un-brothered.”
William on Harry and Meghan’s ‘primadonna’ maneuvers
The Duke of Cambridge is also reportedly not a fan of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “prima donna” maneuvers to conceal the birth of their son. So, Prince William and Kate Middleton waited for full eight days before they met Archie.
Prince William also allegedly wasn’t supportive of the Sussexes’ decision to keep Archie’s godparents a secret. Instead of mentioning their names, the royal couple just called them “sponsors.” The second in line to the throne could not comprehend the need to keep the list of names a secret, according to his friends.
“How could any new Windsor royal be christened in a meaningful sense without the newcomer’s sponsors being known, if not present?” Rebecca English of Daily Mail wrote.
“One thing we may conclude is that Harry and Meghan had developed an exaggerated idea of their own importance.”
