Even though Prince Harry and Prince William seemed in good spirits while attending Princess Diana's statue unveiling on July 1, it seems like the two are not ending their feud anytime soon.
Queen Elizabeth has been trying to "smooth things over" with Meghan Markle and Harry for a while, but William now wants to "change tack."
"William had felt that the smoothing over hadn't been working for quite a long time at that moment," according to the Daily Mail's Charlotte Griffiths. "He felt decisive action was needed, that he needed to play them at their own game."
Since Harry, 36, lives in California with his wife and two kids, royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti predicted that his relationship with his older brother won't get any better as time goes on.
“Just remember that the Queen hasn’t met her latest granddaughter. It doesn’t seem likely that she’s going to anytime soon. She’s barely seen Archie for quite a while,” he continued. “On a human family level, forgetting them being the royal family, there’s already quite some frostiness and distance there. So, I suspect if things can go well, [then] maybe they’ll have the occasional meeting, but I don’t think it seems very high on anyone’s agenda.”
Sacerdoti noted that it remains to be seen if the two will be able to make up down the line.
“It’s like any family. Sometimes we keep a closer contact with people than other times, and some people we stay more in touch with than others. So, I think just the very distance between the United States and the United Kingdom and the complications of either parts of this family being able to travel means that jetting backwards and forwards isn’t necessarily going to happen though,” he said.
