Princes Harry And William At Odds Over Public Statement About Meghan Markle
Looks like Camilla Bowles isn’t the only hater in the royal family after all. Turns out that Harry’s big bro Prince William has some concerns about how quickly his little brother opted to go public about his rumored romance.
According to Daily Mail reports
William, 34, and Harry, 32, are very close, living yards from each other at Kensington Palace and sharing both an office and a charitable foundation.
But despite his support for Harry, William is fiercely protective of his family’s privacy and believes his more open brother made a mistake in wearing his heart on his sleeve.
‘He thinks Harry made a mistake in confirming the relationship and releasing such an emotional statement so soon [into it],’ one well-placed Palace source told the Mail.
‘He feels that the statement offered up too much information and only served to fuel speculation about how serious Harry is about Meghan. It could also put him in a difficult position in the future regardless of whether the relationship leads to something or not.
‘William knows that his brother can be hot-headed and understands that it is something he felt very strongly about. Privately, he shares a lot of the sentiments he and Meghan expressed as, make no mistake, she was very involved in the statement too.
‘But he believes it was wrong to make his feelings so public.’
Royal sources said yesterday that William was made aware of the statement before Harry put it out. A Kensington Palace spokesman added the elder prince ‘understood’ Harry’s concerns. They said: ‘The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him.’
The statement was certainly unprecedented, as the brothers have only issued a handful of releases in the past. They’ve shared concerns with the public about photos of their mother being printed of her pictured in her dying moments, a statement about her former butler Paul Burrell’s tell all book that they called ‘cold and overt betrayal,” and William spoke out against topless photos of his wife Kate Middleton as well as the paparazzi’s aggressive attempts to take photos of his kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
When it’s come to personal relationships they’ve chosen to stay silent rather than fuel any rumors.
‘William is of the opinion that you need to keep your powder dry on these sorts of things and they, as a family, should only resort to making public statements when there is no other option left,’ said the source.
‘He just doesn’t feel this was a big enough issue to make a fuss about.’
Do you agree? We personally think that he makes a good case, but especially in this day and age racist trolls should be taken to task.
On a more positive note, Harry’s expected to spend some time with Markle in December before spending Christmas with the Royal Family at Sandringham.
