At the beginning of June, Queen Elizabeth II invited to big celebrations: The monarch celebrated her 70th anniversary of the throne, which was celebrated with parades and events over several days. Queen’s grandson Prince William and Duchess Kate made a grand entrance with their three children on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the “Trooping the Color” parade. But William’s brother Harry and his wife Meghan also appeared in London at the request of the Queen.

However, there is said to be great tension between the brothers and their wives, after all Harry and Meghan gave US talk show host Oprah Winfrey a well-received disclosure interview in March 2021, in which they made serious allegations against the royals, which included racism. The couple previously relocated to the United States and now play a smaller role in British royalty, returning to Harry’s homeland together for the first time.

The meeting at the Queen’s anniversary is said not to have smoothed the waves between the princes, on the contrary: Meghan and Harry’s children were also with them in the UK, but Kate and William are said to have made no move to introduce their children to each other, according to aristocratic expert Christopher Andersen.

Lilibet did not meet her cousins

Andersen is the author of the bestseller “Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan” and claims to be well connected with the royal family. He now said about the meeting of Harry, Meghan, William and Kate to the US portal “Us Weekly”:

“William and Kate made no effort at all to introduce Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to little Lilibet.”

There was an ideal opportunity for that. Although Harry and Meghan were only onlookers at the “Trooping the Color” parade and without their children, shortly afterwards they celebrated their daughter Lilibet’s first birthday at Frogmore Cottage, where they lived during their stay in London. The celebration took place with close friends and family, but Kate and William took their two older children, George and Charlotte, to an event in Wales instead.

Even her youngest son Louis did not visit his cousin at her little birthday party, which would certainly have been possible with the help of a nanny. Overall, the relationship between all four royals was cool. The author reiterated the atmosphere during the anniversary: “As far as I know, they didn’t speak to each other during the celebrations.”

More tension at family dinners

Harry and Meghan made their first public appearance since moving to the US on June 3, where they attended Thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Here, too, William and Kate apparently sat as far away as possible from the two and did not appreciate them a glance.

The distrust between the former “Fab Four” is even said to go so far that there was upset the day before when the Queen had invited to a family dinner. A palace insider told InTouch about the meeting, where the four also got together: “Kate got a little nervous when Meghan took out her phone to take some photos.”

So she is said to have felt uncomfortable because the royals are concerned about what Meghan and Harry want to unpack about the family in a planned Netflix documentary. As a result, there is still no trust, which in turn pissed Meghan off: “Meghan was deeply offended that Kate would even think she would take advantage of such a private family moment.”

It remains to be seen what will ultimately actually be seen in the documentation. The associated filming has been taking place for at least a few months, and Harry and Meghan have always been accompanied by cameras during public appearances.
