Kate Middleton Thinks Life’s Too Short for Prince William and Prince Harry’s Feud

The royal family just can’t escape the negative press. And, in recent weeks, it has grown even worse. This time, the focus is on Prince William and Prince Harry.

Many sources close to the royal family claiming that the two are still feeling the effects of their long-running feud. Still, other members of the royal family might be getting fed up with it up, including Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton.

When did the royal feud start?

The origins of the feud between Prince William and Prince Harry began in 2016 when Prince Harry told Prince William that he was serious about marrying American actress Meghan Markle. Supposedly, Prince William asked Prince Harry if he was sure about making a move so quickly, and with someone that he had only been dating for a matter of months.

According to reports, Prince Harry didn’t like that Prince William questioned his relationship, even if Prince William did so with good intentions, and started to withdraw from his brother. The feud rumors intensified over the next year after the royal wedding between Markle and Prince Harry.

Amongst reports that the Duchess of Sussex was having difficulties getting along with the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Prince William officially separated their households. Royal fans saw this as proof that the brothers were not as close as they once were, even though the palace stayed silent about any supposed feud. 

What did Prince Harry say about the feud?

In an unprecedented move, Prince Harry actually addressed the feud in a recent interview with British TV personality Tom Bradby. In the interview, Prince Harry addressed a wide variety of different topics, but when Bradby asked him about any tension between him and his older brother, Prince Harry didn’t shy away from the difficult question. He admitted that “stuff happens” but that “we’ll always be brothers.” 

While Prince Harry didn’t specifically address why the feud started or what exactly caused the tension between the two, he did end his statement by saying that, “we’re certainly on different paths at the moment, but I’ll always be there for him, as I know he’ll always be there for me.” For a member of the royal family to talk about problems within the family is certainly not the norm, and his statements about the feud caused a media firestorm.

Kate Middleton doesn’t like the drama

Prince William has remained utterly silent about the feud, as befits a future king. After all, Prince William has always been held to a stricter standard than Prince Harry has.

However, a source recently claimed Duchess Kate has been making her feelings on the affair well-known in the royal family circle. The source states that Middleton doesn’t like seeing the drama currently surrounding Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. But, at the same time, she doesn’t want to get too involved in it. 

The same source reveals that Middleton has thoughts about the feud between her husband and his younger brother. Supposedly, Middleton believes that “life’s too short to make enemies” and really wants the brothers to “heal the rift” and move on.

Middleton could also be privately trying to help Markle’s morale improve: The source states that she has reached out to Markle over the phone and knows that she is struggling. While no one yet knows the extent of the situation in the royal family, it’s clear that something is going on – and it is only a matter of time before tensions boil over.
