Prince Harry Royal Rift With Prince Williams Is Reportedly Rooted in Duke of Sussex’s Sensitivity to Criticism

Unless you are a royal fan who is completely in the dark, you are well aware of the tension between Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry. Although the two are still on speaking terms, the truth of the matter is that there is a bitterness between them that has left a lot of onlookers confused and saddened to see.

Prince William and Prince Harry are living on different continents right now, and distance is not the only thing driving them apart. We have heard rumors for months about friction between some members of the royal family, and at first, it was said to be their wives, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, who couldn’t see eye to eye.

Everyone soon found out, however, that the real feud wasn’t between the duchesses — instead, it was Prince Harry and Prince William, who were once so close, now involved in some sort of disagreement. Let’s talk about how Prince Harry’s royal rift with Prince William is reportedly rooted in the Duke of Sussex’s sensitivity to criticism.

Prince Harry may put on a brave face, but in reality, he definitely has a soft side. We have seen this on many occasions, such as when he talks lovingly of his late mother, Princess Diana, or when he felt compelled on more than one occasion to come to the defense of his wife Meghan when she was being bullied by the British tabloids.

According to the Daily Mail, the Duke of Sussex actually takes things pretty personally, which is difficult considering how he has lived a life in the public eye. From the very beginning, fans as well as the news media have constantly been voicing their opinions regarding everything that Prince Harry does and even things that are out of his control.

Still, it is safe to say that it gets to him at times. As sixth in line to the British throne, the prince has always had a huge fan base, even more so in recent years since he and Meghan married and had their first son, Archie Harrison.

It wasn’t too long ago that Prince William and Prince Harry were practically inseparable. These days, however, things are a bit different, and it is strange, to say the least.

So, what is the rift between them all about? According to The Sun, the once close brothers had a falling out a few years ago, and things haven’t been the same since.

Apparently, before Meghan and Prince Harry were married, Prince William voiced concern that their relationship was moving too quickly. After all, he dated Kate for many years before proposing, so naturally, he couldn’t relate to a whirlwind romance.

Even so, Prince Harry got upset, and suddenly, there was tension between the two. Things began to escalate when Prince Harry felt that Meghan wasn’t being treated fairly by the royals, and before long, the princes were involved in a rift that no one saw coming.

Is it to be expected that Prince Harry ended up in a feud with his brother, or is he being overly sensitive? According to Daily Mail, the Duke of Sussex just may have a little trouble with criticism.

According to a source, Prince Harry tends to take things in a negative way, even when there is no negativity. The source told Daily Mail: “It’s my opinion that Harry feels he couldn’t protect his mother, so he’s going all out to protect his wife. He is so sensitive he often sees criticism or negativity where there isn’t any.”

Royal fans can only hope that the royal brothers can soon put their feud behind them and get back to the way things were.
