For months, rumors of a coward among Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, have been running wild. Fans and news media have been following their every move for some time, analyzing everything they do to determine whether it is the result of tensions between the two princes.
When Harry and Meghan Markle recently split their household from William and Kate Middleton, rumors of a royal rift came to an all-time high. On Easter Sunday, usually a day of family celebration for the royalty, it seemed as if the brothers went out of their way to avoid each other and had no interaction at all.
Now that Meghan and Harry have welcomed their first son, Archie Harrison, there has been a feud that has largely died. But the question of everyone's mind is: Why did William and Harry have such a great deal of disagreement? Was their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, actually behind the royal feud between her two grandchildren?
When did royal sweep rumors begin?
Rumors began far back in the fall, and as it turns out, the original claims were not about William and Harry at all. Instead, it was said that their wives were contrary to each other, with many believing that Kate had difficulty adapting to Megan's strong personality. Sources said Meghan and Kate were very "different" people and that they really "didn't come together" at all.
Before we knew it, Meghan and Harry announced that they left Kensington Palace to live in a new home in the country of Windsor, further exclaiming the belief that Meghan and Kate were having trouble. When the royal sons-in-law were seen kindly and cordially during an engagement at Westminster Abbey, the rumors were put to rest. But the focus shifted to Prince William and Harry.
Princes William and Harry were always very close.
The brothers grew up close to age, always had an excellent relationship. They always came together wonderfully and supported each other as they lived life in the royal spotlight. The two princes suddenly lost their mother, Princess Diana, at a very young age. It turned out that William and Harry's relationship became even stronger as they leaned on each other during one of the most difficult and tragic times of their entire lives.
Prince William was worried when Prince Harry was dating Meghan Markle
Fans could not have been happier when Harry and Meghan began their courtship and eventually married. It seemed to happen quite quickly, especially in relation to William and Kate's relationship. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were together for seven years before announcing their engagement, while Meghan and Harry dated only two years before deciding to marry. Apparently, William was worried that the relationship was moving so fast, and Harry's feelings were extremely hurt as a result.
Was Queen Elizabeth behind the royal feud between Prince William and Prince Harry?
The last thing that royal fans want is to see any kind of tension between the two princes. That they argued at some point raises the question of whether the queen was actually behind it.
Apparently, her majesty issued a warning to both her grandchildren to carefully choose their spouses as she did not want more divorces in the royal family. Harry's grandmother was worried that his relationship with Meghan was moving so fast and not keeping quiet about his feelings. Is Queen Elizabeth the reason why William did not approve Meghan?
It seems that although the feud may have been indirectly caused by the queen's comment, William only expressed concern because he loves and cares for his brother like his grandmother, and that the queen does not deliberately cause tension.
