The Queen’s Death Was A ‘Missed Opportunity’ For Harry And William To Make Up For

The death of Queen Elizabeth II was “a missed opportunity” for brothers Prince William and Prince Harry to make peace, a royal expert says.

“I find it very sad [that] in the days when Harry was here, there was a chance given that they were only a few hundred yards from each other for a meeting or dinner or some sort of gathering where they could really just try and figure things out,” The New Royals,” author Katie Nicholl tells Vidak For Congress exclusively.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were in the UK for 11 days after the Queen passed away on September 8 at the age of 96.

During that time, the couple stayed at Frogmore Cottage, not far from Adelaide Cottage where the Prince and Princess of Wales reside.

Nicholl notes that although William “expanded the olive branch” by inviting his estranged brother and sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, to take him and his wife Kate Middleton for a walk outside Windsor Castle, it wasn’t the icebreaker that royal watchmen had hoped. on.

“If you look back on it, there’s no real warmth,” Nicholl says. “There’s no real convergence, it’s very clear that the ‘Fab Four’ aren’t fantastic anymore, they went through the motions.

“I’ve had it on very good sources that there was no private meeting and so yes” [there was] a missed opportunity, but a reflection of how intensely both brothers think about things.”

Nicholl explains that a relaxation seems weak as both brothers dig in their heels.

“William can be very stubborn and hold a grudge,” she says. “Harry is emotional and hot-headed and they are both very passionate and there is a lack of understanding on both sides and resentment on both sides and anger on both sides that could not be appeased and processed.”

Prince Harry and the alum “Suits” tied the knot in May 2018, but less than two years later they announced their intention to “take a step back” from their duties as senior royals.

Harry’s relationship with his brother and family hit a new low in March 2021, when he and Markle sat down for a great interview with Oprah Winfrey. In it, they accused an undisclosed relative of doubting the skin color of their then-unborn son Archie.

Days later, Prince William strenuously denied the accusation, telling reporters, “We are not a racist family.”

The Queen also issued a carefully worded statement.

In it, she said the “issues raised, particularly those of race, are of concern,” but tactfully said that “memories may differ” rather than denying them.

Since then, the brothers have only seen each other briefly at events such as the funeral of their grandfather Prince Philip, where they chatted after the service, and the unveiling of a statue of their mother, Princess Diana, on what would have been her 60th birthday. .
