Prince William is allegedly considering ending the rift between him and his younger brother, Prince Harry. However, the Duke of Cambridge is worried that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might pull a stunt during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebration.
Prince William Allegedly Wants To End Rift With Brother Prince Harry
The Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex have reportedly been feuding for years since the latter decided to marry Meghan Markle. Prince William advised his younger sibling to take his time and not tie the knot immediately, which Prince Harry allegedly didn't take well.
However, an unnamed insider claimed that Prince William wanted to mend their relationship. But the future king found new concerns involving the Sussexes.
"William wants to talk to Harry to try to heal the rift between them but he’s fearful it will find its way on to Netflix, Oprah or into Harry’s upcoming book," an unnamed source said, The Sun reported.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are working on a documentary for Netflix, and the second in line to the throne doesn't want any private conversation to be discussed on the streaming service.
Another cause of concern is their grandmother Queen Elizabeth's upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebration. The Sussexes already confirmed their attendance, and there are fears that they might steal the British monarch's thunder at the event.
"William will worry that Harry and Meghan will pull a stunt to try to get the limelight," royal biographer Tom Bower added. "Kate and William would be foolish not to be suspicious and would be unwise not to be cautious."
Prince William And Prince Harry's Relationship Depends On Duke Of Sussex's Choice Of Wife
Prince Harry and Prince William were very close growing up. When the Duke of Cambridge started dating and eventually married Kate Middleton, they became a royal trio. The three royals were inseparable that Prince Harry was deemed the Cambridge's third wheel.
When Prince Harry started dating Meghan Markle, royal fans thought the royal trio would become a fab four. However, it didn't happen as the royal siblings decided to have separate households until the Sussexes stepped down from their royal duties and moved to California.
Princess Diana's former royal biographer, Tina Brown, believed that had Prince Harry married someone like his sister-in-law, Middleton, his relationship with Prince William would have never changed.
"It all depended on who Harry married. If Harry married somebody like Kate, I’m quite sure their relationship would have been preservable," Brown told Marie Claire, referring to the relationship of Prince Charles' two sons.
"But he’s pursued such a different course now from William, going off to live an essentially Hollywood life...Meghan showed him another world that he found much more exciting. I understand it, but it’s been very disruptive to their relationship."
The Sussexes will fly to the U.K. next month, and it will be an opportunity for Prince Harry and Prince William to sort out their issues. The Cambridges were not in the country when Prince Harry and Markle visited the Queen and met Prince Charles last month.
