It appears that the long-standing rift between Prince William and Prince Harry of the Royal Family is getting to a height in recent times from what onlookers have noticed in the two’s mannerisms and lives. This isn’t exactly new to most that keep up with the Royal Family since William and Harry have been uneasy at best with each other for quite a long time, but it’s certainly worth learning a little more about.
Recently during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations the royals came together for the usual ongoing festivities, but things were clearly just as icy between Prince Harry and the family. This was especially noticeable in the conclusion where the royal party passed by Harry and Meghan without a single look or facial expression, both parties essentially ignoring the other quite pointedly.
Over a year ago was the last time the two Princes were together in any situation or acknowledged each other in any non-bad way, which is quite some time for the issues that occur within the Royal Family. Of course this drama has a lot to do with the principles and rules that Prince Harry chose to step back from or outright deny in his life, which is not looked nicely on by the family.
Since the main issues erupted between Prince Harry and Prince William, the pair have been seen having words only once or twice. Things became more and more heated when the controversy continued surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as well as their family together, and it often seemed that Harry did not want to waste time trying to repair the rocky and then broken relationship between him and family.
However, up until this recent event at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee the two boys did still at least try to pretend to have a good relationship for the sake of traditions and outward appearances. They would appear near each other when needed or seem friendly until the events and performances were over. Which seem a little two-faced, but most pointed out it’s at least a definitive attempt to be civil or fix the rift.
Which is why it was such an important and shocking point when the royals ignored Harry and Meghan entirely, and the couple did the same. This is bold for a family in such close public eye. Usually they try to appear fine until absolutely not possible any more, and to see that put viewers in a situation where they know something is certainly going awry with this rift.
The more you know! We’re not sure what this means for the Royal Family or for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the future, but it is a sign that things may finally have pushed too far for the family to heal or even pretend to heal. It all depends on them, and those of you that like to keep up with the royals will be able to see how this ends up in the coming months.
