For the first time, Prince Harry admitted to a falling out with his brother, Prince William. Palace aides had repeatedly denied reports of a rift between the Sussexes and the Cambridges, who had once been championed as the Royal family’s ‘Fab Four’.
‘William and I are on different paths… brothers have good days and bad days’ said Prince Harry. In the candid interview, the Duke of Sussex acknowledged there had been deepening tensions between himself and William, following months of speculation about the state of the brothers’ relationship.
The 35-year-old initially laughed in response to the question, then added: ‘Part of this role, part of this job and this family being under the pressure it is under, inevitably stuff happens.
‘But look, we are brothers, we will always be brothers. We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and, as I know, he will always be there for me.’
He added: ‘We don’t see as much as we used to because we are so busy but I love him dearly and the majority of stuff is created out of nothing.’
‘I will not be bullied into playing a game that killed my mum.’ the Prince said. The extraordinary attack against the media comes after he and Meghan launched legal action against several British newspapers. Following the documentary #WeLoveYouMeghan became the top trending topic on social media with users offering positive messages in the wake of the Duchess’s recent media scrutiny.
It has been announced that the couple will be taking six weeks off from their royal duties over the Christmas period to spend time together as a family. The couple is expected to spend their first Christmas with their son Archie with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at Sandringham in Norfolk.
It is understood they will fly to Los Angeles next month to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.
