In ruins. Prince William and Kate Middleton are keeping their distance from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Royal insider Katie Nicholl revealed to Entertainment Tonight that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge want to stay away from William’s brother and wife.
Katie Nicholl revealed to ET on June 30, 2022 that William and Kate’s avoidance of Harry and Megan is on purpose. “I think that not only signals a busy schedule on the part of the Cambridges, but maybe a little lack of confidence,” she told ET. “I know William and Kate are concerned that anything they might say or do might end up in the media. So I guess in case you really have to prove you can trust them now.”
She stressed the importance of how Harry and Meghan’s relationship with the royal family will continue to impact trust between the brothers. “If there’s any chance of moving on, repairing relationships and really trying to heal some pretty deep wounds, then I think Harry and Meghan have to respect the wishes of the royals,” continued Nicholl. “I think Harry and Meghan have to respect the wishes of absolutely [Queen Elizabeth II] and [Prince Charles] and that these meetings remain private.”
The two siblings and their wives did not meet at their grandmother’s platinum anniversary. Royal expert Russell Myers told the Australian news program Sunrise on June 6, 2022 that it was very cold between the two at the National Thanksgiving Service. “It was very, very cold in the church. You could cut the atmosphere with a knife. The brothers did not meet their eyes or even make eye contact. Harry craned his neck to look at William and William didn’t look at him.” Myers continued, “I think there’s still a lot of bad vibes and there needs to be a little more water under the bridge before these brothers get back together .” According to an insider speaking to Us Weekly on June 22, 2022, their relationship “is said to have hit rock bottom.” The Duke of Cambridge was “not in a good place” with his brother.
Harry and Meghan Markle invited William and Kate Middleton to Frogmore Cottage for their daughter Lilibet’s first birthday. However, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge previously had commitments on where to be in Wales to meet with performers for a Queen’s Jubilee concert at Cardiff Castle. Harry and Meghan joined Harry’s royal family for the celebrations from June 2-5, 2022, only to depart just before the platinum anniversary concert on Sunday June 5, 2022.
