Did Playing Big Brother Ruin Prince William’s Relationship with Prince Harry?
Although there has been buzz about a royal feud between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, some think another feud might be brewing. Royal watchers speculate there might also be tension in the British royal family between Prince William and Prince Harry.
Prince William reportedly confronted Prince Harry about Meghan Markle
Why do some think tension might be brewing between Prince Harry and Prince William? According to a TLC documentary titled Kate v. Meghan: Princesses at War? Prince William reportedly confronted Prince Harry about his relationship with Meghan Markle.
According to Katie Nicholl, a royal journalist and author, Prince William was concerned with how fast things were moving with Prince Harry’s relationship with Meghan Markle. Although Prince William was trying to provide brotherly support, Prince Harry was reportedly riled up by the suggestion he was moving too fast. Here’s what Nicholls had to say:
William was quite concerned that the relationship had moved so quickly. And being close to Harry, probably the only person close enough to say to Harry, ‘This seems to be moving quickly, 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. 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.
Some think Meghan Markle is to blame for the alleged rift between Prince Harry and Prince William
Although Nicholl thinks the rift between Prince Harry and Prince William was due to a misunderstanding between the brothers, Lady Colin Campbell, a royal biographer, thinks the rift is linked to Prince Harry’s preoccupation with Meghan. “Everything I hear is that Harry is completely beguiled by Meghan and completely enthralled to her and has changed considerably. People do change when they get married,” she said.
Meghan Markle has reportedly been having a tough time as a member of the British royal family
Some say the Duchess is lonely and has had some difficulty adjusting to royal life. According to a People magazine source, Meghan hasn’t been able to keep in touch with some of her friends. “Meghan has lost touch with some of her close friends from before the wedding, which has been tough,” says the source. “She’s finding it hard to know who to trust.” Meghan has also reportedly clashed with some of Prince Harry’s friends.
Was there any truth to rumors of a feud between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle?
Prince Charles reportedly intervened so Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton could patch things up between them. Royal expert Robert Jobson implied the Prince of Wales had to force the royals to be cordial when interacting in public in Sandringham.
Jobson doesn’t think the feud was as big as the media made it out to be, but he does think Meghan and Kate did have a problem, reports The Mirror. Here’s what Jobson had to say in his interview with Sunrise: “I think there’s no smoke without fire. I do think it has been blown up a little bit, but there have obviously been a few problems between the two ladies and even between the two princes.”
