How Prince William And Prince Harry’s Broken Relationship Could Be Tragic For The Royal Family

Prince Harry’s relationship with Prince William has deteriorated quickly over the past few years, and royal experts believe that the rift could spell disaster for the rest of the royal family. Harry has always been viewed as a beloved member of the royal family, not just in Britain but also across the globe. But many royal watchers believe that Prince Harry has undergone significant changes ever since he tied the knot with Meghan Markle, and his “soured” relationship with Prince William could divide the royal family like never before.

William and Harry grow apart

Prince Harry and Prince William have faced feud rumors for the past year. The reports were seemingly confirmed when Harry and William announced plans to split their houses. The brothers also decided to disband their joint charity, the Royal Foundation, a company they started along with their wives, Kate Middleton and Markle.

William and Middleton will continue with the charity while Harry and Markle have started their own company. The move against working together came as a huge surprise to royal watchers, especially considering how William and Harry used to be super close.

“William and Harry were once so close: friends, allies, brothers, always teasing; so obviously happy in each other’s company. Kate seemed to fit into the relationship seamlessly,” a source shared. “They had each other’s backs and there was every expectation they always would have.”

The feud rumors first surfaced when Prince Harry and Markle moved out of Kensington Palace in the fall of 2018. The couple moved to Windsor following the renovations of Frogmore Cottage, where they currently call home. The move sparked reports that Harry and William were at odds with each other, and the decision to split their houses all but confirmed the sad news.

Harry and Markle have already hired several new staff members to lead their team, so the chances of the couples making amends and working together are not looking good.

Why are Prince William and Prince Harry feuding?

The royal family has not commented on the feud rumors, making it difficult to determine exactly what went wrong. Inside sources claim that Harry got offended after William gave him some advice about taking things slow with Markle.

Prince William and Middleton dated for several years before getting engaged, and the Duke of Cambridge allegedly told Harry that he should take it slow before popping the big question. William also had reservations about Markle because she had been married once before.

Although the advice was given out of concern for Harry’s wellbeing, he reportedly felt like William was trying to ruin his relationship with Markle. Sources claim that Harry went off on William during a heated confrontation and their relationship has never been the same. To make things even worse, Harry did not feel as though the rest of his family accepted Markle earlier in their relationship.

That said, the couples have never shown any outward signs of a rift and have even appeared together for royal events. Only time will tell if there is any truth to the rumors, though it sounds like Prince William and Prince Harry still have a lot of things to work out.

Harry and Markle recently welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison. The pair is preparing to go on a tour of South Africa, their first trip as a family of three.

Harry and Markle face backlash

Prince Harry’s feud with Prince William is not the only thing on the couple’s plate at the moment. According to Express, Harry and Markle recently came under fire after using private jets for personal vacations. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex allegedly traveled on private jets four times over the course of two weeks, and none of their destinations were related to their royal duties.

In fact, Markle is technically still on maternity leave after giving birth to Archie in May. One of their trips was to Ibiza, while another was to visit Elton John in Southern France.

In light of the backlash, several celebrities have come to the couple’s defense on social media. Elton John also allegedly stated that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle used one of his private jets for security reasons. The legendary singer sent the pair a jet so that they could travel to his home without fear of the media. Harry and Markle have yet to comment on the reports.

Neither Prince William nor Prince Harry have commented on the status of their relationship.
