Prince William, Prince Harry feud fueled by ‘betrayal’?

Prince William, Prince Harry feud fueled by 'betrayal'?

Prince Harry and Prince William shared a tight, close relationship.

Prince William and Prince Harry have become the center of many feuding allegations since last year. Following the Sussex couple’s “bombshell” interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby, many have since concluded that the royal siblings no longer share the same relationship they once had.

Months after the talks began, things seemingly went further down south. Earlier in January, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shocked the world upon announcing their decision to quit the royal life, and the Duke of Cambridge deemed it as a “betrayal,” according to Cheat Sheet.

How Prince Harry “betrayed” his family

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took their shocking announcement to Instagram. However, royal biographer Robert Lacey claimed that this “rubbed” Prince William the wrong way.

Writing in his book, Battle of Brothers, Lacey claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not discuss their plans with the Queen before making it known to the world. For the eldest Wales Prince, this is a total “disrespect” toward the British Monarch, he added.

The royal expert continued that the British Monarchy is an “institution based on hierarchy and respect.” This is reportedly some of the things they learned growing up. Hence, it did not go over well with the British Royals, especially the future King of the United Kingdom. It is as if the Duke of Sussex “drove a horse” and “cart through royal protocols,” Lacey said.

Prince William loves and cares for his brother

The events that occurred earlier this year reportedly “deeply hurt” Prince William because he loves his brother. Some royal experts even added that things might have gone the other way if only Prince Harry and Meghan Markle talked it out first with the rest of the British Royal Family. Unfortunately, they pursued a different path, which the Duke of Cambridge has since “struggles to understand,” the experts noted.

Aside from the reported “betrayal,” there were also other speculations about the alleged rift between the royal siblings. Previous reports claimed that the fallout began when Prince Harry revealed his plans to marry Meghan Markle.

In Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s Sussex-centered book, Finding Freedom, the authors claimed that the Duke of Sussex took offense when his brother expressed his concerns toward the former Suits actress, according to the Daily Express. Prince William “advised” his younger brother not to rush things with Markle. Despite his good intentions, many reportedly branded his concern as “snobbish,” adding that the royal siblings hardly spoke since.
