William, Prince of Wales, will run a very different type of monarchy compared to his father, King Charles III. This could also include a full severance in every possible way with his younger brother, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle.
"William is already planning for when he becomes King, and he doesn’t see a future for the Sussexes in the royal family," an insider spilled.
"The feeling is that allowing the Sussexes back into the fold is a bad move, and they should be resigned to the fringes indefinitely," they added.
The future king's ideas about how to address Team Sussex are radically different from how the current King views the situation. Although it could be many years before he becomes monarch upon his father's death, the heir to the throne is reportedly trying to envision how to neutralize "the Sussex problem."
The anonymous source continued: "William is completely adamant that they [the Sussexes] shouldn’t be welcomed back, while the King thinks it would help stop the media circus surrounding the family. William doesn’t think the Sussexes have much more ammunition, and they’ve already played their best cards. Charles is the only senior member of the family who is holding out any hope of a reconciliation, but that has more to do with Harry being his son than anything else."
If the 75-year-old King Charles III shares his mother and father's longevity, he could reign for another 20-25 years. This would place William, Kate, Princess of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their 60s when the former takes over the Crown. Numerous royal analysts have said that the unknown variables of how these years unfold make it difficult to even imagine a "stable monarchy" by that time.
But insiders are adamant that the current King's "bring them back in" approach is not the best way forward.
"The royal family has had more than enough of this very public tantrum. If it’s not books and TV appearances, it’s court appearances and stories appearing in the press. There’s not much more left to say, and it’s no surprise that the family are keeping them [the Sussexes] at arm’s length. They can’t be trusted," the palace insider observed when describing how senior royals view Harry and Meghan.
They concluded by sharing how "senior royals are more than aware that Harry and Meghan’s popularity has nose-dived since Megxit and are concerned that letting them back into the fold could prove catastrophic for the family. They don’t want to be part of being booed at public events, and they certainly don’t want to be seen as weak for allowing them back in after everything they’ve done."
