Prince Harry’s drastic decision that will take him even further away from his brother William
He will not attend a party in honor of his mother; a royal expert felt his absence will further widen the wedge between the two
On Tuesday evening, Kensington Palace will hold a ceremony in honor of Lady Di on the day she would have turned 60. The event was supposed to take place in July when the statue of Diana was discovered, but had to be postponed due to the pandemic. The objective of the meeting is to thank the donors who financed the commemorative figure which is in the gardens of the palace.
However, unlike what happened in July when Prince Harry made a special trip to London to see the statue, this time he will not be attending the meeting, hosted by his brother William.
In that sense, according to a royal expert, Harry’s absence will increase the gap that currently exists between the siblings. “I think it’s very sad that Harry didn’t attend. He will be sadly missed,” Duncan Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, told The Mirror.
“Obviously he now lives very far away and we still have travel restrictions, but there is a real possibility that he will return to the UK, as he demonstrated in July for the unveiling of the statue. Both Diana’s children should be there. Unfortunately, this is just further confirmation that things are not going well between the brothers, “he concluded.
The royal expert, in turn, thinks William should refer to Harry when thanking donors at the event. “It will be interesting to see if he makes any comments regarding his brother,” Larcombe said, adding: “William should thank the people who will be meeting there on behalf of him and his brother. be able to draw conclusions about the worsening of the discomfort. ”
With the news that Harry is writing an autobiography and the memories of Oprah’s interview still fresh in the minds of the Royal Family, it’s no surprise that relations between the brothers remain bitter. Duncan said.
“It’s not easy to forget how personal Oprah’s attack on Kate was,” the expert said. “William is naturally very protective of Kate. Let’s not forget that Meghan directly accused her of making her cry and not the other way around. Then she also pointed out that she was responsible for telling reporters against her, or at least not clarifying the truth of the story, when in reality this is a very strong accusation to be made publicly. », He added.
Despite all the resentment, Duncan describes Harry’s absence from the memorial party as “a missed opportunity”: “I was told there is currently a ‘wait and see what’s in the book’ attitude. Harry ‘enters the royal family. But the reality is that Diana’s memorial party is another missed opportunity for the two brothers to reunite. ”
