Prince Harry and Prince William Have Spoken Since Megxit Believes Royal Expert Melanie Bromley — ‘They Love Each Other’ [Exclusive]
Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship is reportedly still strained but that does not mean they have given each other the cold shoulder. Royal expert Melanie Bromley believes Harry and William have spoken since the Megxit scandal rocked the royal family. Bromley does not think the brothers have buried the hatchet, but she does think they still “love each other” and have reached out.
Inside Prince Harry and Prince William’s royal rift
Reports of Harry and William’s falling out first surfaced in 2018. At the time, there were also rumors that Meghan Markle was feuding with Kate Middleton over an incident that happened during her royal wedding that spring.
According to Cosmopolitan, a source claimed that Prince Harry confronted Prince William about not “rolling out the red carpet” for his wife. The brothers reportedly experienced a brief falling out before Prince Charles got involved and persuaded them to make amends.
The rumors of a royal rift, of course, did not stop there. Fans began to pick apart every public outing that featured The Fab Four and quickly came to the conclusion that something was amiss.
A TLC documentary titled Kate v. Meghan: Princesses at War? fueled the speculation. In the film, royal expert Katie Nicholl said that William thought Harry’s romance with Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, was moving too fast and asked his brother, “Are you sure?”
“I think what was meant as well-intended brotherly advice just riled Harry. Harry is hugely protective of Meghan. He saw that as criticism,” she added. “He interpreted that as his brother not really being behind this marriage, this union, and I don’t think things have been quite right ever since.”
Harry admits he and William are on ‘different paths’
Until the fall of 2019, Prince Harry and Prince William remained mum on their reported feud. That all changed last October when Harry opened up about the rumors in the documentary, Harry & Meghan: An Africa Journey.
Harry revealed that “stuff happens” when people are put under the pressures of the royal spotlight. He also revealed that he and William are “on different paths at the moment” before saying that they will “always be there” for each other.
“We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy, but you know, I love him dearly. The majority of this stuff [in the press] is created out of nothing, but you know, as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days,” Prince Harry noted.
The interview pretty much broke the internet and confirmed that things were not right between Harry and William. Unfortunately, the situation did not improve over the next few months.
Their relationship suffered a major blow in January when Harry and Meghan announced that they are stepping down from their royal duties. At the time, sources said that William was completely “blindsided” by the announcement.
Harry and William address the feud rumors
Shortly after the Sussexes confirmed their exit in January, Prince Harry and Prince William released a statement regarding their rumored feud. According to Time, the brothers called the reports “offensive and potentially harmful” in what was a rare statement on behalf of the royal family.
“Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a U.K. newspaper today speculating about the relationship between the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge,” the statement read. “For brothers who care so deeply about the issues surrounding mental health, the use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially harmful.”
The royals did not cite the specific story in the statement, but it was thought to have been directed at a source who said William’s “bullying attitude” is what drove Harry and Meghan away.
Royal expert believes Prince Harry and Prince William have spoken
Harry and William have not said anything about their relationship in recent weeks. But royal expert Melanie Bromley, who is the E! News Chief News Correspondent, says that she is “certain” the brothers have reached out.
“I’m almost certain,” Bromley shared when asked if Harry and William have spoken. “You don’t have to make up to love each other again, right? We all go through ups and downs. They are just like everyone else.”
Bromley added that recent events have brought Prince Harry and Prince William closer. This includes Prince Charles’ battle with the coronavirus. Bromley noted that Harry and William love their father deeply and still have plenty of love for each other.
Harry and Meghan are currently living in Los Angeles, where they will spend the majority of their time moving forward. Their exit from the royal family became official on March 31.
Prince Harry and Prince William have not commented on the latest reports surrounding their feud.
