The royal family simply cannot escape the negative press. And in recent weeks, it's gotten worse. This time the focus is on Prince William and Prince Harry.
Many sources close to the royal family claim that the two continue to feel the effects of their longstanding feud. Still, other members of the royal family may be bored, including Prince William's wife Kate Middleton.
When did the royal vengeance begin?
The origin of the altercation between Prince William and Prince Harry began in 2016 when Prince Harry told Prince William he was seriously marrying American actress Meghan Markle. Prince William reportedly asked Prince Harry if he was sure he would go so soon and with someone he'd only been dating for a few months.
According to reports, Prince Harry did not like Prince William questioning his relationship, even if Prince William did so in good faith, and began to withdraw from his brother. The conquest rumors intensified the following year after the royal wedding between Markle and Prince Harry.
Among reports that the Duchess of Sussex had difficulty comparing herself to the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Prince William have officially separated households. Royal fans saw this as proof that the brothers were not as close as they used to be, though the palace was silent on any supposed altercation.
What did Prince Harry say about the feast?
On an unprecedented move, Prince Harry actually addressed revenge in a recent interview with British TV personality Tom Bradby. In the interview, Prince Harry addressed a variety of different topics, but when Bradby asked him about any tension between him and his older brother, Prince Harry did not refrain from asking a difficult question. He admitted that "things were happening," but that "we would always be brothers."
While Prince Harry did not specifically address why the altercation began or what exactly caused the tension between the two, he ended his statement by saying, "We are on different paths at the moment, but I will always be there for him, as I know he will always be there for me. "Talking about problems within the family is certainly not the norm for a member of the royal family, and his statements about the quarrel have caused a media storm.
Kate Middleton doesn't like drama
Prince William remained completely silent about the altercation, as was fitting for the future king. After all, Prince William has always been of a stricter standard than Prince Harry has.
However, a source recently claimed that the Duchess Kate expressed her feelings about an affair well known in the royal family. A source says Middleton does not like to see the drama currently surrounding Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. But at the same time, she doesn't want to get too involved in it.
The same source reveals that Middleton has thoughts of an altercation between her husband and his younger brother. Reportedly, Middleton believes that "life is too short to make enemies" and really wants the brothers to "cure discord" and move on.
Middleton could also privately try to help Markle improve morale: A source states that she has contacted Markle over the phone and knows she is struggling. Although no one knows the extent of the situation in the royal family yet, it is clear that something is going on – and it is only a matter of time before the tensions rise.
