Prince William and Prince Harry are rumored to be feuding. However, the Duke of Cambridge is reaching out to his younger brother, but their reconciliation may depend on Duke Sussex's memoir.
Prince William Sensible Enough To End Rift With Prince Harry
The Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex were very close growing up. Prince Harry also developed a close bond with his sister-in-law Kate Middleton. He was even branded the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third wheel.
However, the royal siblings' were divided after Prince Harry married Meghan Markle. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex eventually stepped down from their royal duties and moved to Los Angeles.
Multiple sources claimed there was a falling-out between Prince Charles and Princess Diana's sons. However, the second in line to the throne is allegedly showing hints that he wants to reconcile with his younger brother when he recalled during the Apple Fitness Time To Walk podcast how he and Prince Harry would sing Tina Turner's hit Simply the Best with their mom. Royal expert Duncan Larcombe felt Prince William was extending an olive branch to his brother by sharing the sweet memory.
"We have to hope that even the most subtle words from William here and there act as little signals to Harry," Larcombe said, per Express. "It’s as if he’s saying, ‘Look, come on. Let’s sort this out.’ As the older sibling, William is sensible enough to know that he has to fix things."
However, the former Royal Editor for The Sun may depend on the content of Prince Harry's memoir. The Duke of Sussex has a book on the way, which the publisher described as "intimate and heartfelt."
So, Prince Harry's memoir could either help him reconnect or break his relationship with his sibling.
"We don’t yet know if or how strongly he’ll slate his father and brother in the book," he continued. "It’s hard to imagine what might be coming, but until that book hits the shelves, the stalemate is highly likely to continue."
What To Expect In Prince William's Brother Prince Harry's Memoir
Prince Harry announced in July that he was working on a memoir. The book will be released later this year.
"Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him," Random House announced, per USA Today.
The book will cover Prince Harry's lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day as a dad and husband. It will also feature his years in the royal service and military.
"Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous, and uplifting human story," the publisher added.
Prince Harry also released a statement about his memoir. According to him, it would be a "firsthand account" of his life that is "accurate and wholly truthful."
"I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become," his statement said. "I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think. I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far."
