Prince Harry and Prince William are 'very close' despite feud rumours

Prince Harry and Prince William are reportedly growing closer despite rumours of a feud and the great distance between them. As are Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, a royal expert reports.

"I know that the four are talking with one another and they’re talking by Zoom [and by] FaceTime," Stewart Pearce, author of Diana: The Voice of Change told Us Weekly.

Pearce predicted the couples' conversations are "informal" with "Kate cooking dinner in the kitchen" and her husband "making cups of tea" as they chat with the Sussexes.

The author added that Harry and Meghan are "very different" from William and Kate, "Their lens on the world is highly individualized."

"And what’s remarkable is that they all totally respect [each other], but this lens is different."


"It’s not that William and William and Kate leave all the controversy about Harry and Meghan alone," he added. "But... they just simply position it there because after all, it’s not their responsibility to be involved in, you know, verbalizing anything. What they do is just simply offer as much peace and tranquillity and calm as possible.

The brothers' rocky relationship first became known in 2019, when Harry said he and William were "on different paths" in the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

Soon after, the Sussexes announced they were stepping back from their senior royal roles.

In January 2020, a source told Us Weekly, "William is incredibly hurt, but at the same time he has his own family to focus on and is trying to move forward with his life."

Things were seemingly made worse when Harry and Meghan gave an interview to Oprah Winfrey, saying, "I love William to bits, he’s my brother, we’ve been through hell together, we have a shared experience, but we were on different paths.”

"The relationship is space at the moment. And time heals all things, hopefully.”

Harry has since returned to the UK twice since that interview earlier this year, once for Prince Philip's funeral in April and again for the unveiling of their late mother Princess Diana's memorial statue in July.

Kate and Meghan have been reconnecting in recent months with the Duchess of Cambridge "reaching out" to her sister-in-law after the arrival of baby Lili.
