The royal family simply can not resist the negative press. And in the last few weeks it has gotten worse. This time, Prince William and Prince Harry are the focus.
Many sources close to the royal family claim that the two are still feeling the effects of their long-standing feud. However, other members of the royal family may be sick and tired, including Prince William's wife Kate Middleton.
When did the royal feud begin?
The beginnings of the feud between Prince William and Prince Harry began in 2016, when Prince Harry told Prince William that he was serious about marrying American actress Meghan Markle. Allegedly, Prince William asked Harry if he was sure he was going to do something so fast and be with someone he had only met for a few months.
According to reports, Prince Harry did not like Prince William questioning his relationship, even though Prince William did so with good intentions, and began withdrawing from his brother. After the royal wedding between Markle and Prince Harry, the feud rumors intensified next year.
Under the reports that the Duchess of Sussex had difficulty getting along with the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Prince William officially separated their households. For the royal fans, this was proof that the brothers were not as close to each other as before, though the palace had been silent about alleged feuds.
What did Prince Harry say about the feud?
In an unprecedented move, Prince Harry quarreled in an interview with British TV star Tom Bradby. In the interview, Prince Harry addressed a variety of topics, but when Bradby asked him about tensions between him and his older brother, Prince did not shy away from Harry's difficult question. He admitted that "stuff happens" but that "we will always be brothers".
While Prince Harry did not specifically address why the feud started or what exactly caused the tension between the two, he ended his statement by saying, "We are certainly in different ways at the moment, but I will always be there for him, there I know he will always be there for me. " Family is certainly not the norm, and his statements about the feud caused a firestorm in the media.
Kate Middleton does not like the drama.
Prince William has been completely silent about the feud, as befits a future king. After all, Prince William was always stricter than Prince Harry.
However, one source recently claimed that Duchess Kate expressed her feelings about the affair known to the royal family. The source states that Middleton does not like the drama about Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. At the same time, she does not want to get involved too much.
The same source reveals that Middleton is concerned about the feud between her husband and younger brother. Supposedly, Middleton believes that "life is too short to make enemies" and really wants the brothers to "heal the gap" and carry on.
Middleton could also privately try to improve Markle's morality: according to the source, she contacted Markle over the phone and knows she's having trouble. Although no one yet knows the extent of the situation in the royal family, it is clear that something is going on – and it is only a matter of time before tensions worsen.
