Prince William, reportedly, threw out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after he found out that his sister-in-law was bullying her staff.
While speaking with New Idea, royal biographer Robert Lacey said that shortly after Prince William heard the complaints, he drifted away from his brother and from Markle.
“For William, Knauf’s allegations also clarified something that the prince had long believed – that Meghan was fundamentally hostile towards the royal system, which she failed to understand as an outsider. William wondered if she had not wanted to leave from the very start – even dreaming, perhaps, that she could whisk Harry back with her to North America,” he said.
Prince William reached out to Prince Harry amid his wife’s bullying allegations
Following the allegations, Prince William also spoke with Prince Harry via the phone to ask what had been happening.
However, the brothers were unable to reach an understanding because the Duke of Sussex flared up while defending his wife.
“Harry shut off his phone angrily, so William went to speak to him personally. The prince was horrified by what he had just been told about Meghan’s alleged behavior, and he wanted to hear what Harry had to say. The showdown between the siblings was fierce and bitter,” the source said.
Prince William believed Meghan Markle had an agenda
Additionally, the Duke of Cambridge also became convinced that Markle had an agenda. After all, the accusations against her have been alarming. And even his wife, Kate Middleton had been wary of Markle from the beginning.
“William felt deeply wounded. Hurt and betrayed were the two feelings that he described to his friend. The elder brother had always felt so protective. He had seen it as his job to look out for Harry, but this was the moment the protection had to stop,” the source said.
The siblings have not reconciled
Until today, Prince William and Prince Harry have not ironed out their issues.
In fact, in the second part of his book, Battle of Brothers, Lacey claimed that the siblings got into another heated argument when they reunited at Prince Philip’s funeral.
Prince William has not also repaired his relationship with Markle. And it’s unclear if they will ever reconcile.
