While many royal experts hope Prince William and Prince Harry will end their family feud, it’s doubtful that will ever happen.
The feud between Prince Harry and his brother Prince William, which reportedly began in 2018 and stemmed from falling out over Harry’s relationship with Meghan and the Sussexes’ place in the royal family, seems to have no end in sight.
Andrew Morton (opens in a new tab)a royal historian and author who wrote ‘Diana: Her True Story’ in 1992, told the Daily Beast: ”I very much doubt they will reconcile. There’s a lot of wishful thinking about it. “
He said royal fans should look no further than recent platinum jubilee celebrations to confirm the family feud has no end in sight, explaining the brothers couldn’t even bother to interact with each other.
“When the time they spent in London was brief to say the least, there was no suggestion of having dinner or lunch or bringing the children together,” he explained. The longer this breakup lasts, the more likely it will be that William and Harry will “go separate ways.”
Morton also shared that geographic distance between family members was a big part of the equation. “They will separate, and the longer Harry and Meghan stay in America, the more comfortable they will be there,” he added.
The historian clarifies that Prince Harry and William are not the first brothers in royal history to fall out, comparing the royal family to Queen Elizabeth’s father, George VI, and older brother, Edward III.
“George VI adored his brother, like Harry adored William, they were inseparable, but then he abdicated, moved abroad and the relationship was never the same again, William and Harry are in a similar situation.”
He also thinks Diana would have been “concerned about the breakdown of the relationship between her children” but would likely have been supportive of Harry’s unique journey outside of royal life.
