Don't expect to see Prince William and Prince Harry spending the holidays together. According to author Robert Lacey, the Duke of Cambridge recently hinted at his animosity toward his brother when he held a bash to thank those who were involved in the making of the Princess Diana statue at Kensington Palace.
"There is no immediate possibility of any reconciliation," Lacey added. "I mean, it’s not wanted on either side. Too many bitter things have been said."
The worst could still be yet to come, as Harry announced this summer that he'll be releasing a memoir next fall, and biographer Andrew Morton believes the tome will focus heavily on "his relationship with his father and brother."
Next year, there's a good chance that William and Kate Middleton will take a trip to America for the first Earthshot Prize Ceremony, but royal expert Phil Dampier predicted that the parents-of-three won't make an effort to visit Harry and Meghan Markle in California.
"I don’t think William and Kate would want to meet up with Harry and Meghan, who could try and steal their thunder on the Earthshot project. They are very much rivals now, not brothers in arms, and I’m afraid I can’t see a reconciliation soon," he explained. "If Harry dropped his book project and admitted some of his and Meghan’s comments were over the top there might be some progress, but I can’t see it happening."
"William and Kate have always been very popular in the U.S. but have not been there for some time so they will want to boost their profile, and next year, during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year, would be a golden opportunity," Dampier continued. "If they stayed with Harry, it would turn into a circus and also be a security nightmare, taking attention away from the green cause, so I expect William and Kate to concentrate on their efforts and not meet up with them."
