Will the Birth of Baby Sussex Strengthen Harry and William’s Relationship?
Baby Sussex could arrive any day now, as Meghan Markle has officially started her maternity leave. Meghan and Prince Harry have settled in at their new home, Frogmore cottage, and it has been confirmed that Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, will be traveling to the United Kingdom in anticipation of her grandchild’s arrival. The royal family is no doubt extremely excited to welcome the new baby.
However, there have been rumors circulating recently of tension between Harry and his older brother, Prince William. While it is natural for even the closest of siblings to drift slightly apart once they start their own families, fans can’t help but wonder if the birth of Baby Sussex will help to strengthen the relationship between Harry and William.
Prince William and Harry were always extremely close
The world’s most famous royal brothers were always close friends. Growing up in the spotlight, they supported each other amid all of the pressure. And, because they were so close in age, they always had a lot in common. When they unexpectedly lost their mother, Princess Diana, at a very young age, they seemed to get even closer as they bonded over her memory and helped to ease each other’s pain. As the boys entered their adult years, they appeared to be the best of friends, always sharing a good laugh and playful banter.
Did Prince William’s marriage impact his relationship with Harry?
When William married Kate Middleton in 2011, he and Harry seemed to get even closer. Kate, William, and Harry became known as the “royal trio,” often appearing at events together. Upon the arrival of each of Will and Kate’s three children, Harry was always there with all of the love and support that would be expected from a wonderful uncle. Things were going great for the two princes.
Why Prince Harry and William grew apart
The past few years have been extremely busy for Harry, as he met, fell in love with, and married Meghan. Now, Harry and Meghan are expecting their first child. Fans have been concerned that William and Harry don’t seem to be as close as they once were, and they are blaming everything from Harry’s marriage to the fact that everyone in the royal family is so busy with their duties.
Will Baby Sussex bring Prince William and Prince Harry closer together?
With the arrival of Baby Sussex set to happen any day now, we can only imagine that William must be ecstatic to become a first-time uncle! Although Harry now lives over 40 miles away, in the countryside of Windsor, fans are hoping that William will make plenty of time to visit and spend time getting to know his new niece or nephew. Meghan and Harry will likely also bring the new baby to London whenever possible, so there will be more than enough time for William to bond with the new arrival. Chances are, this will allow him to strengthen his relationship with Harry as well.
What about the rest of the family?
Prince Charles and Camilla, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, and the rest of the royal family will probably be spending time getting to know Meghan and Harry’s baby as well. It will be a happy and exciting time for everyone, with so much to celebrate. Hopefully, it will ease the tension between William and Harry, and perhaps they can set aside some time to talk about whatever the problem may be. We are confident that they can come to a resolution that allows them to put the tension behind them so that they can move on and grow stronger!
