Prince Harry claims his brother Prince William broke a pact the pair made not to let negative press reports from their office get on each other.
“William and I both saw what happened in our dad’s office and we agreed that we would never let that happen to our office,” he said in the latest episodes of their docuseries. Netflix, “Harry & Meghan”.
“I would much rather be destroyed in the press than play with this game or this trading business,” said the Duke of Sussex, 38, “and see my brother’s office do the same as we have promised to do both. never do, it was heartbreaking.
Harry and his wife Meghan Markle also detailed when the negative press about them started after their successful tour of Australia in 2018.
“The problem is when someone who gets married, who should be a supporting act, then steals the show or does the job better than the person who was born to do it, it upsets people,” Harry explained elsewhere. in the doc. “It shifts the balance because you’ve been led to believe that the only way for your charities to succeed and the only way to grow or improve your reputation is to make the front page of these newspapers.”
There have been been rumbling for years of a break between William, 40, and Harry since the latter started dating Markle in the summer of 2016.
However, the rift widened further after the Sussexes were infamous quitting their royal duties in January 2020 and sat down for a explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.
Harry and Markle alleged to the famous talk show host at the time that members of the royal family had done racially insensitive comments on the skin color of their firstborn.
The former “Suits” star also told Winfrey, 68, that Middleton, 40, made her cry before her royal wedding in May 2018 on her choice of bridesmaid dresses.
The allegations immediately prompted the Prince and Princess of Wales to go into defense mode and debunk the claims.
A few days after the interview, William told reporters that the royal family was “very not a racist family.
Royal Family author Katie Nicholl, who has had close ties to the Royal Family for years, then said Middleton was ‘mortified’ about the crying incident which was exposed because she is “very careful with how she treats other people”.
Investigative reporter Tom Bower claimed months later that Markle was the one who made his sister-in-law “burst into tears.”
Since then, Harry and William have been spotted avoiding each other at royal events.
In June, it was reported that the brothers had no plans to go out during Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee despite Harry now living across the pond in California with Markle while William still resides in the UK.
Even the The death of the queen in September failed to reunite his grandsons.
A source close to Harry told the Sunday Times of London to be in each other’s company was “uncomfortable” for siblings, but “everyone does their best”.
Nicholl explained at the time why William had so much trouble forgive Harry.
“He always thought Harry would be his wingman, now he’s doing it all on his own,” said the author of ‘The New Royals – Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown’. “Thank goodness he has Kate by his side.”
The remark referred to Harry’s previous claim that William is “trapped” in royal lifesince the former Duke of Cambridge is the heir apparent to the British throne.
“Time heals everything, hopefully,” Harry told Winfrey in his 2021 interview. “I love William to pieces. … We went through hell together.
