Earlier this year, the Sussex family parted royal households with the Cambridge family, amidst all the theorizing of a rising rift between the two royal couple. Meghan and Prince Harry moved to Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor before the arrival of their first child, while Prince William and Kate stayed at Kensington Palace.
The rift reportedly started when the two brothers clashed as Prince William thought that his brother married the US-born actress too speedily. Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter insisted that, despite all of them being big fans of tennis, the “fab four” will not make an appearance together.
She insisted that the main reason for the Sussex and Cambridge not making a joint appearance is the risk of “upstaging” the tennis match. Speaking on Yahoo’s Royal Box, royal commentator Victoria Arbiter said: “I think we may see Kate and Meghan at Wimbledon together again, which would be great. It would be a lovely show of togetherness.
“They clearly had a great time when they went before and they are the two major tennis fans.
“William really likes tennis as well.
“I don’t think we’d see the four of them because I think, again, you’ve got to be aware that if you see the four of them it would totally detract from the tennis that was going on.
“It’s such a balance, you’re constantly thinking about who you’re upstaging, who’s writing about what.”
Royal expert Katie Nicholl is certain that both Prince William and Prince Harry had a falling out. She said: “I was told by a very senior royal source that actually they weren’t talking to each other at one point.
“I certainly think that now Archie is here it has probably really helped to improve the relationship.
“William is over the moon that his brother is a dad.”
Ms Nicholl previously has stated that the whole feud between the two brothers started over the Duke of Cambridge’s fears over Harry’s relationship with Meghan Markle developing at an “astoundingly fast pace”.
Speaking on a TLC documentary on the royals, she said: “William was quite concerned that the relationship had moved so quickly.
“And being close to Harry, you know, probably the only person close enough to say to Harry ‘this seems to be moving quickly, are you sure?’
“And I think what was meant as well-intended brotherly advice just riled Harry.”
Recently we got the news that Meghan and Harry have split from their joint charitable foundation with Prince William and Kate, reigniting all the rumours of the supposed rift between the Sussex and Cambridge.
But some royal experts and palace aides are assuring us that this was just the next step for the couple.
The charity announced the split in a statement last week and said the decision had been taken following a review of the charity’s structure.
The statement read: “These changes are designed to best complement the work and responsibilities of Their Royal Highnesses as they prepare for their future roles, and to better align their charitable activity with their new households.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are incredibly proud of what they have achieved together through the Royal Foundation.”
