A lot could have happened during Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s visit to the UK to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee without the public knowing. Aside from an alleged secret meeting with Prince Charles, Prince William is reportedly upset at how his relationship with his younger brother has deteriorated.
A friend told him expressthat Prince William feels let down over his relationship with Prince Harry. In fact, the two princes didn’t get a chance to spend some private time during the Duke of Sussex’s return to the UK.
Although the two attended the televised thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral, they did not greet each other in public. The Cambridges were also invited to Frogmore Cottage for Lilibet’s first birthday party on Saturday 4 June, but they were in Cardiff for an anniversary gig.
Anyway, they wished the kid a happy birthday on Twitter. Happy birthday to Lilibet who turns one today! the site @KensingtonRoyal tweeted.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly left the UK before the anniversary celebrations were officially over. It was their first outing together to a major royal event after they will step down as senior royals in 2020.
While in the UK, they reportedly had a secret meeting with Prince Charles. The royal couple were reportedly expecting peace with the royal family but were disappointed as there were no touching feelings for Prince Harry.
Royal commentator Christopher Anderson told Royally Us (via Mirror) that the Sussexes had a cursory meeting with the Prince of Wales during the anniversary celebrations and were hoping for a rapprochement with the royal family. He said the curtain had apparently fallen on the possibility of father-son harmony.
He added that Princess Diana was heartbroken at the state of the relationship between the couple and Prince William. Anderson went on to say that the late People’s Princess understood why his youngest son wanted to live his own life away from the monarchy and start a new one with his own family in California.
But the Princess of Wales always saw Prince Harry as Prince Williams’ wingman and often said her boys were her revenge. She opined that they should have worked as a team and lead the monarchy into a more modern era.
But as the royal family’s relationship with Prince Harry unfolds today, it looks like the future of the kingdom will be dominated by Prince William, Kate Middleton and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
