To make his brother listen to reason, Prince William has multiplied the solutions. In November 2017, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially announced their engagement after just a few months of dating. A joy for the British at the idea of attending a new royal wedding, but which proved to be difficult for Prince William to accept. Not tender with the future Duchess, whom he described as “snobbish” and “condescending” after their first meeting, did everything to prevent this marriage. And for this, he even appealed to Lady Diana’s brother.
Indeed as reported by the Daily Mail, worried that his brother would marry Meghan Markle too quickly, Prince William asked Charles Spencer for help to make him listen to reason, which he accepted. After which, if Prince Harry did not hold it against his uncle, he did not fail to reproach his brother for having put this idea of marriage too quickly in the heads of several members of his family. And an event that marked the beginning of a deep separation between the two princes, who even today have trouble talking to each other.
Harry’s departure was the most “hurtful” for William
Bickering at Kensington Palace which continued in the months following the wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, to the point that the latter decided to settle in Frogmore Cottage. A rupture definitely consummated when the Sussex couple announced their decision to renounce their status as senior members of the royal family, and their move to Los Angeles. And that was a real blow to Prince William. “This is really what caused the most injuries to William, because he wears two caps (that of the brother and that of the future king),” said Omid Scobie. “He is not only the brother, he is also the future king and he felt that this could damage the reputation of the family.”
