Prince Harry and Prince Andrew are definitely the black sheep of the royal family, but it seems like the former is in bigger trouble.
“The Prince Andrew issue has been ring-fenced, making Harry a bigger problem for the monarchy," author Tina Brown claimed, adding that The Firm "isn't going anywhere."
She believes that once Prince Charles takes the throne, he will "get things in shape" for his eldest son, Prince William. But when William and Kate Middleton take over, they will have a "more European, less traditional" way of doing things.
Prince William seems to have both issues with both Andrew — who was sued by Virginia Roberts for allegedly raping her when she was 17 years old, but they later settled the case — and Harry.
For one, the 40-year-old does not want Andrew at any events going forward. According to a source, he "would have cut [Andrew] loose a long time ago if it had been up to him."
"He understands that when it comes to mother and son the situation is complicated, but honestly I think he just wishes he would vanish from public view," they continued.
Meanwhile, Harry, 37, and William haven't been on great terms in quite some time, and it doesn't seem like they are willing to make up.
"He's actually always been very protective of Harry and has a very low tolerance of people being disrespectful about him, even now. I think he'll keep the door open to him for ever," a source told the Daily Mail. "In some ways, it's not like any of this was a surprise. Harry always had concerns about life within the Royal Family. And in hindsight the pressure that was put on him and William, living and working together as some sort of dynamic duo, placed a massive strain on their relationship. They had no room to breathe. But Meghan complicated it."
They continued, "Harry had to pick a side — and there was only one side he was ever going to choose. But I also find it impossible to believe there is anything these two brothers could say about each other that means they will never find a way to repair things. They were too close and have been through too much together for that to happen. He alternates between grieving for what he has lost and feeling really, really angry about what his brother has done. He truly loves Harry and feels he has lost the only person, aside from his wife, who understood this strange life of theirs. But he believes there are things you just don't do. And Harry has 100 percent crossed that line."
