Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lost something important to them after their royal split.
Last year, Prince Harry announced that he wanted a separate households from his older brother, Prince William. Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also announced that they were stepping back as senior members of the royal family.
Following their exit from the royal family, Prince Harry and Markle are now residing in the U.S. Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge remain in the U.K., fulfilling their royal duties.
According to royal correspondent Daniela Elser, before Markle joined the royal family, Prince Harry was not only the most famous ginger, but he was also the most famous third wheel. The duke was so close to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge that they were dubbed the royal trio. He was often spotted accompanying Prince William and Middleton, thus earning the moniker.
When Markle was about to join the Firm, many thought the trio would become the “Fab Four.” However, it didn’t happen. Instead, the two princes decided to live separately. And Elser said the “Fab Four spectacularly failed” and it was “one of the greatest royal failures in recent history.”
“In the wash up, Harry has lost the chance to represent and work for the country he loves so much; Meghan has lost the opportunity to realise her full vision and impact as a working member of the royal family,” Elser wrote. “William has lost his lifelong fraternal support and Kate has lost one of the people in her life who intimately understood the pressure of royal life, along with the chance to find an ally behind palace gates.”
The Cambridges and the Sussexes were allegedly feuding. Some claimed it was Middleton and Markle who had issues. Meanwhile, others suggested it was Prince William and Prince Harry who had a falling-out. Prince Harry reportedly didn’t like it when his big brother told him to slow down with his romance with Markle.
But according to royal biographer Katie Nicholl, Prince Charles’ sons are on speaking terms again. In fact, Prince William mentioned his younger sibling in a post on Instagram.
An insider also told Us Weekly that the future king advised his younger brother to return to the U.K. or move somewhere safer. Just recently, Prince Harry and Markle contacted LAPD due to drone flybys over their property.
