An insider told Nicholl that Harry, 36, is returning to the U.K. alone ahead of the statue unveiling honoring the brothers’ late mother ダイアナ妃. The event will take place on July 1 on what would have been her 60th birthday.
アウトレットによると, Harry’s grandmother エリザベス2世女王 です “desperate” to see her 2-year-old grandson Archie. しかしながら, the toddler will be staying at home in California with his mother メーガン・マークル and his baby sister Lilibet “リリ” ダイアナ, 6月に生まれた人 4.
“Meghan will stay at home with the children,” a pal told Nicholl. “Harry is flying alone.”
According to the friend, the duchess is allegedly “concerned” about Harry’s solo trip and the reception he’ll receive back home. Nicholl shared that the duke was “privately shocked” によって “frosty welcome” he received from some family members when he returned to England in April for his grandfather Prince Philip’s 葬儀.
Several family members “were still reeling” from the couple’s bombshell interview with オプラ・ウィンフリー 3月.
アウトレットによると, 兄弟 “have agreed to a truce” to avoid media spectacle surrounding their relationship. It is believed they will give separate speeches.
“They know the eyes of the world will be on them – watching their every move – so what you will see is a carefully choreographed show of unity for that day, 少なくとも,” a source claimed.
The outlet reported that Harry will likely stay at Frogmore Cottage, the U.K. base for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. He will be close to the queen and his cousin Princess Eugenie. It’s unknown how long he will stay in the U.K.
Royal author Ingrid Seward claimed the queen, 95, invited her grandson for lunch, but it is unlikely she will discuss current matters in great detail “because she does not like confrontation.” しかしながら, the meeting “will be an opportunity for them to have a private and open discussion.”
Nicholl’s report came shortly after new details emerged about William and Harry’s alleged fallout.
Royal biographer Robert Lacey, who is also the official consultant on Netflix’s “王冠,” has updated his 本 “兄弟の戦い: ウィリアムとハリー–騒動の家族の裏話” with added chapters and new material. In the original book, which was published in 2020, the British historian addressed the ongoing woes impacted by the royal family.
Rumors of a split came to light in 2019 when Nicholl claimed that after Harry announced his engagement to Markle, 39, に 2017, ウィリアム, 39, grew increasingly worried for his brother and his whirlwind romance with the American actress.
“William was quite concerned that the relationship had moved so quickly,” Nicholl claimed in the TLC ドキュメンタリー “Kate V. メーガン: Princesses at War?”. “And being close to Harry, ええと, probably the only person close enough to say to Harry, ‘This seems to be moving quickly. Are you sure?’ And I think what was meant as well intended brotherly advice just riled Harry.”
“Harry is hugely protective of Meghan,” Nicholl continued. “He saw that as criticism, he interpreted that as his brother not really being behind this marriage, this union. And I don’t think things have been quite right ever since.”
今, Lacey wrote that although relations between the princes improved by the time Harry and Markle tied the knot in May 2018, they worsened in October 2018 when William, 39, learned that a senior palace aide made bullying allegations against Markle.
According to Lacey, William confronted Harry after he learned of the allegations. しかしながら, it led to a “fierce and bitter” 引数. That confrontation led to William removing Harry and Markle from the joint office they shared.
“William threw Harry out,” a friend alleged, アウトレットが引用したように.
Lacey alleged that the angry confrontation first occurred over the phone and then in person when William asked Harry about the bullying claims.
“When Harry flared up in furious defense of his wife, the elder brother persisted,” read the excerpt. “Harry shut off his phone angrily, so William went to speak to him personally. The prince was horrified by what he had just been told about Meghan’s alleged behavior, and he wanted to hear what Harry had to say. The showdown between the brothers was fierce and bitter.”
William allegedly told a friend he felt “痛い” そして “betrayed” as it was his duty to protect his younger brother. しかしながら, the British crown – and everything it stands for – came first.
“ハリー, 彼の部分のために, was equally furious that William should give credence to the accusations against Meghan, and he was fiercely combative in his wife’s defense,” the excerpt read.
A rep for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, didn’t immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. しかしながら, Markle’s team strongly refuted the bullying allegations when they were first reported by the Times in March shortly before the couple spoke to Winfrey in a televised interview.
Lacey previously told フォックス・ニュース it will take a while for the relationship between the brothers to heal.
“I think it would always have happened that Meghan and Harry would live on the other side of the world,” 彼が説明しました. “I think Meghan and Harry will remain based in North America. Unless the brothers can find a way to reconcile, they will have to go their separate ways and keep mutual respect for each other.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departures from royal duties began in 2020 over what they described as the British media’s intrusions and racist attitudes towards the former “スーツ” 星. The family now resides in the coastal city of Montecito, カリフォルニア.
In the wake of quitting royal duties, they gave an explosive TV interview to Winfrey, in which the couple described painful comments about how dark their son Archie’s skin might be before his birth. The duchess talked about the intense isolation she felt inside the royal family that led her to contemplate suicide.
Buckingham Palace said the allegations of racism made by the couple were “について” and would be addressed privately.
