According to Prince Harry, they are looking in different ways now. The brothers have lost their deep connection. Let’s look at several facts that we have.
We want to start from the UK premiere of the documentary about the royal couple «Harry and Meghan: A Journey Through Africa» on ITV. Filming took place during the tour of the royal couple in Africa. Tom Bradby, a director, and journalist who managed to not only follow his heroes for ten days but also talk with them on a variety of topics, including rather personal ones, concerning relationships within the royal family. So, with Harry, he discussed a widely discussed media fight with his older brother.
Lately, the relationship between the two men is far from ideal. However, there is no kind fight that is mentioned in the media sources every day. As told Harry, such things are actually inevitable. But still, they are family and always will help each other. Of course, they are now going in different ways, but they are still connected. Even though the brothers see each other not as often as before, because they both are really busy, but they deeply love each other. Most rumors are made up of nothing. They, like any normal family and absolutely normal people who have fights from time to time. It’s ok to have good and bad days.
As far as we know from several royal sources, the older brother is sincerely worried about Megan and Harry after their interview. Besides, the recent behavior of Prince Harry, the declaration of media war, and tears outbursts are a clear sign that everything is not very good. He seems out of whack. Even in his attitude to the press, Harry believes that they destroyed his mother and now got at his wife. In turn, William refers to the issue of the media more composedly, he doesn’t like the interference of the media as well, but he understands that otherwise is impossible.
Presumably, the tension in the royal family started back in 2018. William and Harry always had a close relationship. Of course, Harry asked his older brother to be his best man at the wedding. However, as we later found out, before the «big event,» William told Harry about his fears. The older brother was very concerned about one thing: the relationship between Megan and Harry (he thought that it developed too quickly). He asked Harry if it was a rush, but his brother reacted with hostility. Harry is very warm-hearted to everything related to Megan, and he considered William’s words to be criticism. Perhaps this marked the beginning of all the problems.
As it became known to the media, now brothers are not even connected by a common memory of the mother, in the form of the charity Princess Diana foundation. According to the Royal Foundation report for 2019, the funds of the Princess Diana Foundation have already been divided between the charitable organizations of the two brothers, who worked together until last year.
We already know the result of this. Later the world saw the formal separation of the Dukes of Sussex from Cambridge – in June 2019, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were no longer involved in the work of the Royal Foundation Brothers Common Fund and found their own charity foundation SussexRoyal. Few people then could have imagined that the matter would end with a family breakdown to such an extent that the Dukes of Sussex would completely abandon their royal duties and leave for the USA after the birth of Archie.
