Prince Harry’s Recent Documentary Is Not the First Time the Duke of Sussex Has Made a Heartbreaking Confession About Prince William
Prince Harry’s relationship with Prince William has certainly seen better days. Following months of feud rumors, Harry finally opened up about his fractured relationship with the Duke of Cambridge in the shocking documentary titled, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey. The documentary pretty much confirmed that the brothers are feuding, yet it is not the first time the Duke of Sussex has made a heartbreaking confession about William.
Prince Harry dishes on his relationship with Prince William
Rumors of a rift between the brothers surfaced earlier this year when Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, moved out of Kensington Palace. The couple relocated to Frogmore Cottage, which is on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The feud rumors continued until this past October, when Harry all but confirmed the reports in the surprising documentary.
As fans will recall, Harry confessed that his relationship with William has gone through a few rough patches over the years and that they do not talk as frequently anymore.
He then admitted that he and Prince William are on separate paths, which could be the reason he and Meghan decided to leave Kensington Palace in the first place.
Royal watchers were shocked by Prince Harry’s interview, as were other members of the royal family. But this is hardly the first time Harry has dished on his relationship with William.
A look at Harry’s previous comments about William
Back in 2009, Prince Harry and Prince William took part in RAF training and shared a cottage with each other in Shrewsbury instead of living on the base. According to Express, the brothers sat down for an interview while they were living with each other and talked about the ins and outs of their daily lives.
Throughout the interview, William joked about how he constantly had to clean up after Harry, whom he insisted was the messier one. Things turned serious, however, when Harry confessed that he had a difficult time with the exams.
“Exams have never been my favorite and I always knew that I was going to find it harder than most people,” Harry shared.
Prince William quickly added that he helped Prince Harry through the tough times much in the same way he supported their mother, Princess Diana, when she was going through her divorce from Prince Charles.
This includes praising Harry for his good qualities and being there whenever he needed help or encouragement.
Prince William is reportedly worried about Prince Harry
Given how close the brothers used to be, it is understandable that William is worried about Harry and Meghan. After hearing about the documentary, William reportedly admitted that he is concerned about Harry and hopes his younger brother is doing okay.
The last time we saw Prince William and Prince Harry together was in November when the royals gathered for Remembrance Day. The two appeared for several royal engagements that weekend, though they never interacted with each other in public.
This, of course, has only fueled the feud rumors even more, and things are not likely to get any better as we get closer to Christmas.
Harry and Meghan recently flew to the United States to spend the holidays with her mother, Doria Ragland, in California. The couple is expected to remain in America through Christmas, so it might be a few weeks before we see them in public.
Do William and Harry talk?
Sadly, inside sources say that the documentary has done little to bridge the gap between Prince William and Prince Harry. One source even claims that the brothers do not speak at all, which has left Harry feeling very isolated from the rest of his family.
“There hasn’t been this complete 180,” an insider explained. “Nothing has changed. They don’t speak, no one is checking in, no one is texting.”
That said, the documentary opened the eyes of the royal family, who are now aware that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are struggling with the constant media attention.
We can only hope that the royals will eventually reach out to the couple and start the healing process. If that does not happen, there is no telling what Harry and Meghan might do.
The sad part is that Prince William is also focused on becoming king someday, and his relationship with Harry is unfortunately not part of those plans. This is one reason why Prince Harry said they are different paths, though there is still plenty of time for the brothers to make amends.
