Prince William and Prince Harry will soon reunite at King Charles' coronation on May 6. But royal fans who are hoping for a reconciliation between the brothers might be disappointed to know that their relationship remains strained.
Prince William And Prince Harry Have Not Had Any Conversation Since Spare
A royal expert told People that Prince William and Prince Harry have not spoken to each other. And there's also no hope for the brothers to have peace talks ahead of King Charles' important day.
Throughout the past couple of years, the siblings' relationship deteriorated due in part to their differences. But Prince William and Prince Harry's respective spouses, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, also played a key role in the brothers' falling out.
Prince Harry Detailed His Altercation With Prince William In His Memoir
In his book Spare, the Duke of Sussex claimed that he and his older brother previously got into a heated argument while he was still residing at Kensington Palace. Their feud escalated to the point where the Prince of Wales grabbed Prince Harry by his collar and knocked him to the ground.
"He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor. I landed on the dog's bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out," he wrote.
Prince William And Prince Harry's Relationship Reportedly Hit Rock Bottom
During a recent interview, royal editor Russell Myers claimed that Prince William and Prince Harry's relationship had reached rock bottom ahead of King Charles' coronation. As such, there's little to no hope for the brothers to reconcile anytime soon.
"William and Harry are still pretty much at rock bottom. I don't think anything has changed there. I don't think the Prince of Wales will have time or the inclination to speak to his brother. He feels immensely hurt by the barbs that were in Harry's book and the way that he [Harry] has carried on speaking knowing it will hurt the family. The issue is Harry has earned an incredible amount of money off the back of these attacks. Whether William has cause to speak to him - I very much doubt," he said (via Express).
As of writing, it has also been confirmed that Prince Harry won't play a special role at his dad's upcoming coronation. He was, reportedly, simply invited because he's the son of King Charles. But the fact that the monarch did not send him an invite personally proves that his relationship with the royal family has not improved in recent months.
