William Indifferent to Harry's Possible No-Show at Royal Christmas
Prince William reportedly would not be upset if his brother, Prince Harry, were to miss another Christmas with the Royal Family.
The brothers' relationship has been strained for years, with the divide deepening following the death of the late Queen and the accusations Harry made in his memoir, Spare, and his Netflix documentary.
Despite rumors of a thawing relationship between the Duke of Sussex and the King, thanks to a 'warm' phone call last week, Harry, his wife Meghan Markle, and their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, are unlikely to be welcomed back into the royal fold for the festive period. This would reportedly please William, according to royal expert Jennie Bond.
Bond stated, "I don’t think William will be shedding a tear over this. Deep down, I’m sure he still loves Harry, but I don’t think he can see a way out of the rift that has opened between them."
Instead of inviting Harry and Meghan to Sandringham, Charles could ask them to visit him in Scotland over New Year when William, Kate, and their family would be at their country retreat of Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
The relationship between Meghan, Harry, and the Royal Family has been fraught with tension since they stepped back from The Firm in 2020.
The couple has made several explosive claims about their time in the Royal Family, further deepening the divide.
