Brothers Harry and William they will have to see each other next Thursday July 1 at the tribute to his mother, Lady Di, to be held in London. This fact occurs at the worst moment in the relationship between the princes. Many blame this distancing on Meghan Markle, whom they have come to define as a “real nightmare”.
British royal expert Robert Lacey, who is promoting his latest book, “Battle of Brothers: The Inside Story of a Family in Tumult,” revealed when friends asked Prince William about his sister-in-law, he complained about the “ruthless” way in which, in his words, “that damn woman” treated her employees.
In a column for the tabloid Daily Mail, Lacey reveals that she spoke with a group of friends of the children of Diana of Wales and Prince Charles, and assured that people close to Prince Harry admitted that “Meghan can be a 500 percent nightmare.”
The relationship between them has been distant since last year when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex left the royal family, moving first to Canada and then to Los Angeles. Everything got worse after Harry participated in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
Lacey also claimed that Harry and William had a fight after their grandfather’s funeral last April. Although the brothers had a brief public talk outside of St. George’s Chapel that day, it all ended in an argument, according to the royal historian.
In 2018, the Duke learned that his brother’s wife was being accused of intimidating her Kensington Palace staff. These accusations were leaked a few months ago by the newspaper The Times and later denied by the Dukes of Sussex.
When Prince William was informed of the allegations against Markle, he confronted Harry face to face. “The prince was horrified by what he had just been told about Meghan’s alleged behavior, and wanted to hear what Harry had to say.Lacey notes in her book. “Harry turned off his phone angrily, so William went to speak to him personally. The confrontation was fierce”, Details the writer.
“William wanted to be separated from Meghan on a day-to-day basis, and that meant separating from his brother as well.Lacey points out another passage in the book. William then decided to evict the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from Kensington Palace in June 2019.
The couple opened their own press office and moved into a house on the Windsor grounds.. Then the so-called “Megxit” would arrive, with the departure of Harry and Meghan to the US, thus moving away from the institutional representation of the British royal family, at the beginning of 2020.
It also states that Kate middleton he had been “distant with Meghan from the start” and that the allegations he was hearing from staff supported his initial reservations about Harry’s wife. “Meghan presented herself as the victim, but she was the abuser. They thought I was a narcissist and sociopath”The source told Lacey.
On Thursday Harry will participate with his brother in the event that will take place in the gardens of Kensington Palace, coinciding with what would have been Lady Di’s 60th birthday. Due to the regulations imposed by COVID-19, the number of attendees will be reduced.
Buckingham Palace has reported that it is quite possible that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, did not attend the event. The princes will only be joined by the close family of Lady Di, sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley and garden designer Pip Morrison.
Markle stayed in California with her children, Archie and Lilibet Diana.
Prince Charles will not be present at the ceremony either.reported this Monday The Times. The heir to the throne and Diana divorced in 1996, a year before his death in a traffic accident in the tunnel that passes under the Pont du Alma in Paris.
