Why Prince William ‘can’t forgive’ Prince Harry, according to royal expert

There will never be a reconciliation between Prince William and Prince Harry, according to a royal expert.

The heir to the throne ‘simply can’t forgive’ his brother for giving up royal life, Kate Nicholl, author of The New Royals – Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown said on “Dan Wootton Tonight” Thursday.

“He always thought Harry would be his sidekick, now he’s doing it himself. Thank God he has Kate by his side,” adds the author.

The once-close relationship between the siblings began to sour even before Harry married Meghan Markle.

In September 2017, when Harry hinted he was about to propose to the Suits actress, William asked him: “Why the rush?” prompting Harry to angrily reply: “Who the hell do you think you are ?”

Prince Harry and his American-born wife left royal life in January 2020 and moved to California.

The relationship hit a new low when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down for an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021. In it, Harry said he felt sorry for his father and brother, who were trapped in their royal roles and couldn’t left as he did, and Markle claims she was driven to suicidal thoughts and ignored by palace officials.

The Duchess recently added fuel to the fire when she said in an interview that “just by existing” she and Harry are “upsetting the hierarchy dynamic” and that’s partly why they’re stepping back.

In the interview, she noted that she had never signed anything to prevent her from speaking about her experiences with the royal family.

Royal watchers had hoped the relationship between the brothers could be mended following the Queen’s death earlier this month.

They were delighted when the estranged brothers and their wives got out of a car to greet crowds gathered outside Windsor Castle, two days after the Queen’s death.

The foursome spent 40 minutes looking at a vast sea of ​​flowers laid outside the castle in the UK and talking to well-wishers.

However, a source close to Harry told the Sunday Times of London that although being in each other’s company was “awkward” for the brothers, “everyone is doing their best.”
