Prince Harry and Prince William Must End Their Feud in Order to Save the Monarchy, Source Reveals
Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana may have had their fair share of differences. However, the former royal couple was on the same page about how they raised their sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. The brothers were raised as close friends and unlike previous royals, their parents exposed them to various aspects of the world, both negative and positive.
The brothers remained close following the tragic death of their mother, and many royal experts envisioned Prince Harry by Prince William’s side when the older prince became the Crowned King. Now, that vision seems nearly impossible.
After forming his own family, Prince Harry has struck out on his own. Following some tension with Prince William and his reported frustrations with the royal family and royal life, the Duke of Sussex is no longer a senior working royal and he’s also moved to LA. However, one royal expert is urging the brothers to put their differences aside.
Tensions between Prince William and Prince Harry reportedly began because of Meghan Markle
According to reports, Prince Harry had been increasingly frustrated as the spare to the heir. Though he remained tight with his brother for years, the red-headed prince felt stifled as the third wheel to Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Therefore, when he met Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and introduced her to his family, he was thrilled.
Unfortunately, Prince William’s response to meeting Meghan was not what he expected. In fact, Prince William warned Prince Harry to slow his romance down and in doing so, made a flippant remark about the duchess.
“Don’t feel you need to rush this,” William told Harry, according to sources quoted in the book, Finding Freedom by Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie. “Take as much time as you need to get to know this girl.” Prince Harry felt that there was a “tone of snobbishness” that was “anathema to his approach to the world” from his own brother.”
Prince Harry and Prince William have been having hard conversations lately
This 2016 conversation seemingly sparked the initial divide between the brothers. In fact, though Prince William knew his brother was unhappy, he never expected Megxit.
Thankfully, these days, the princes are talking through their issues. Amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the duo is trying to mend fences. In order to do so, they’ve been having very challenging conversations with one another.
“The pair are speaking at the moment, but the conversations are stilted and difficult,” royal author Phil Dampier recently told Daily Mail. Hopefully, the brothers can work through their issues. In fact, the monarchy may depend on it.
Prince William and Prince Harry must end their feud in order to save the monarchy
Though Queen Elizabeth II is still respected and beloved across the U.K. for her lifetime of service, the monarchy is seen as an archaic and out of touch institution with no real relevance in modern-day times. Since Prince Charles is older and not nearly as popular as his mother and sons, the monarchy might be in for some tough years ahead.
While Prince William and Kate are doing everything possible to connect with fans and the public, it is up to the future King and Prince Harry to retain the stability of the institution. A palace courtier explained in the summer of 2019 via Finding Freedom,
We cannot have them at war. We need to design a system to protect the monarchy full stop. The future of this monarchy relies solely on the four people currently in Kensington Palace. The public popularity only lies with them. When [Prince Charles] becomes king, the only way it lasts is if the four of them are not at war.
Hopefully, things will pan out so that everyone feels heard and acknowledged.
