Prince William and Kate Middleton have “reconciled” to the fact that their relationship with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is “broken”, according to what has been revealed in a Channel 5 documentary.
The Duchess of Sussex celebrated her 40th birthday over the weekend with husband William and the Royal family — with one noticeable pair of members missing out on the revelry.
Since Harry and Meghan exited as senior Royals two years ago and headed to the US, it became apparent that their closeness with former fellow members William and Kate was no more, after not reuniting as a foursome.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex accusing the Royal family of bad treatment towards Meghan during their Oprah interview in March last year only fuelled reports of distance between them.
Now that the pair seem happy and settled living in Santa Barbra, California with their two children, a repairing of their relationship with William and Kate seems unlikeable, which they have accepted, former chair of GB News, Andrew Neil, has claimed.
“I’m pretty sure from what I’ve been told that Prince William and Kate are reconciled to the fact that this is broken, and it can’t be put together,” Mr Neil told Channel 5 documentary 2021: The Queen’s Terrible Year.
“Not in the foreseeable future anyway, and that they need to go their way and William and Kate will go their way.”
While Harry returned to the UK last year on duties where he was seen reunited with his brother William and some members of the Royal family, Meghan did not follow him.
The first time the Duke arrived in the country after moving to the US was to attend the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, in April 2021.
Meghan was unable to attend then as she was heavily pregnant with the couple’s daughter Lilibet, whom she later welcomed in June.
Harry then ventured back on British soil in July to unveil a statue of his and William’s late mother, Princess Diana, at Sunken Gardens in Kensington Palace in tribute of her on what would have been her 60th birthday.
Reports of the declined relationship between Harry, Meghan, William and Kate, has affected the Queen, according to broadcaster Stewart Purvis, who also spoke to the Channel 5 documentary.
“It must be galling for the Queen, I don’t think you ever quite get used to it when it’s so close to you personally,” Mr Purvis said.
“To see your grandsons being cross-examined in the sense of their body language constantly being pored over by the press.”
As Her Majesty celebrates her Platinum Jubilee in June of this year, perhaps a reunion between Harry and William will come again, leaving ample opportunity for the brothers at least to get together and work things out.
