The controversy surrounding Megxit has sent shockwaves throughout the Royal Family.
Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle caused a major disruption when they chose to go their own way.
Now Prince William and Prince Harry are at odds for one startling reason.
William and Harry, sons of the late Princess Diana, had been close for years.
But according to palace intrigue, the current rift between the two brothers has never been bigger.
The source of the strained relationship appears to be the turmoil caused by Harry and his wife – American actress Meghan Markle – and their split from the Royal Family.
Prince Harry and Markle returned to the United Kingdom for their final duties as royals, and the visit was an alleged disaster.
According to sources, the event went downhill quickly when Harry and Markle agreed to be “low-key” during their trip, but that quickly went awry when Markle upstaged other members of the family with a surprise PR photo shoot.
Also, Markle supposedly fashioned a “Hollywood red carpet” presentation around the ceremonial end of Harry’s military service.
The entire ordeal caused tension between Harry and Markle, and put the two brothers at loggerheads.
The strained relationship between Harry and Markle and William and his wife Kate Middleton has been bad enough to break into the public eye.
According to the Daily Mail:
“William is said to feel insulted by his brother’s recent comments, including the stream of remarks on Harry and Meghan’s Sussex Royal website, which many have taken as implied criticisms of the Royal Family. William feels his brother has ‘disrespected’ the institution of the monarchy and – most woundingly of all – their grandmother the Queen.”
The hubbub over Megxit won’t seem to simmer down, and Harry and Markle don’t seem interested in defusing the situation as evidenced by the histrionics at this most recent gathering.
Harry’s decision to shirk his royal responsibilities in favor of pursuing a film and television career seems incredibly short-sighted.
The move will cost the couple a lot of money, and it will also bar them from using the brand “Sussex Royal.”
It’s impossible to know if William and Harry will ever patch things up, but it’s unfortunate their bond has been threatened because of petty bickering and a half-baked goal of being a social influencer.
Will the two brothers eventually heal the damaged relationship?
