Royal Family: Were Prince Harry and Prince William Feuding During Easter Services?
The relationship between siblings is unlike any other. You fight and then you make up like nothing ever happened. Usually, the arguments between siblings die down the older the siblings get. But with Prince Harry and Prince William, the case might actually be the opposite.
Were Prince Harry and Prince William feuding on Easter?
Several outlets have reported that there has been some tension between the men as of late but there hasn’t been any concrete evidence to back those claims up.
But sources told Entertainment Tonight that there was an obvious distance between the brothers at yesterday’s Easter service at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
William and Harry arrived at the church separately and stood quite far apart. In past years, Harry would walk in with William and Kate Middleton. Instead, this year, Harry spent more time with his cousins Peter Phillips and and Zara Tindall and their significant others.
According to the source, the men are at “different stages” in their lives and are “no longer the boys” they used to be.
Meghan Markle did not attend the services.
Are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moving to Africa?
The reports of distance could have something to do with rumors that Markle and Harry are planning to put physical distance between them and the rest of the royal family by moving to Africa.
The Sunday Times reported that the Sussexes may be planning to move to Africa in 2020 to do charity work for two or three years after their baby is born. The outlet said that the plan would be led by Sir David Manning, who is the former British ambassador to the US and special adviser on constitutional and international affairs to Harry and William.
Surprisingly, Buckingham Palace did not deny this.
“Buckingham Palace is not denying a report that officials have discussed sending Harry and Meghan to Africa as a way of capitalising on their appeal to young people in the Commonwealth – and of putting further distance between them and the Cambridges,” royal reporter Richard Palmer tweeted.
“Buckingham Palace: “Any future plans for The Duke and Duchess are speculative at this stage. No decisions have been taken about future roles. The Duke will continue to fulfill his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador,” he continued.
Prince Harry and William splitting the royal household
The royal family recently announced that they would be splitting the royal household and creating two separate offices.
“They have always been different, they are very different characters,” a source told People of the royal brothers. “They drew great comfort from each other when their mother died, and as they’ve grown up together. But they need to be separate. Now Meghan has arrived it is the right time to make that break.”
Though the split may sound abrupt, it may be for the greater good because now both brothers can focus on their own interests.
“The arrival of Meghan has changed the dynamic of the relationship in a fairly significant way,” royals author Sally Bedell Smith told the outlet. “It is inevitable and practical because it gives Harry and Meghan some freedom to build up their own collection of interests and charities.”
