Did the Media Create Prince William and Prince Harry’s Feud?

No one really knows quite what goes on behind the scenes at Kensington Palace. After the frenzy surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s picture-perfect royal wedding died down last year, reports of a massive feud between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge began to circulate. And, at the time, many believed it had something to do with the brothers’ plan to split their royal court. But, after months of speculation, the royal family finally confirmed the split — and the very logical reason for it.

Did the media create Prince William and Prince Harry’s infamous feud or were the royal brothers actually in a tiff? Find out, ahead.

Prince William and Prince Harry separate households

Last week, the royal family confirmed what has been haunting us for months: Prince William and Prince Harry are going their separate ways. However, the details aren’t as dramatic as many early reports believed. While we are sad to hear that the royal brothers plan to split their courts, the reason for it is completely logical and has nothing to do with a feud between the two.

According to the announcement, the split was a long time coming and has more to do with Prince William and Prince Harry’s different roles in the royal family. After all, Queen Elizabeth probably doesn’t have time for their fussing. “The long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for the Duke and Duchess’s work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage,” the statement explained.

Royal feud rumors

Every family has their differences and, believe it or not, the royal family is no different. Over the last eight months, rumors surrounding feuds between both Prince William and Prince Harry as well as Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have sparked a lot of media attention.

Prince William and Prince Harry were allegedly in a quarrel because the Duke of Cambridge felt his brother and Meghan Markle’s relationship moved too quickly. However, that’s not that crazy of a claim. For one, it did move kind of fast and two, he was just being protective of his little brother. Additionally, some believed Meghan Markle caused Kate Middleton to cry at a bridesmaid dress fitting ahead of the royal wedding. However, that rumor came and went fairly quickly. The two women attended a tennis match together not too long after and have been warm towards each other in their public outings.

Initially, some also believed that the reason Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are moving to Windsor was to put some distance between them and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. However, the real reason for the move stems from their desire to raise children outside of the hustle and bustle of the city and Kensington Palace spotlight.

Did the media create Prince William and Prince Harry’s alleged feud?

Since the news first broke, there has been a lot of back and forth between whether or not Prince William and Prince Harry are actually fighting, or if the feud is between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. However, all of it could just be hearsay, especially since the royal family has provided enough information to diffuse the allegations.
