"That’s well and truly done and dusted," a palace source spilled when asked about the heir and his future queen's mindset on the fiery-haired prince.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex left their public service commitments and Britain in March 2020, but many sources have since stepped forward to reveal the "Fab Four" rift was from the very start. Prince Harry himself wrote about animosity between the then-Duchess of Cambridge and his actress wife-to-be in early 2018, now known as "lip gloss gate." There was also the Princess Charlotte bridesmaid dress fiasco in the run-up to the Montecito couple's nuptials that spring.
Royal expert Duncan Larcombe mentioned the Fab Four feud when he told an outlet: "Another account would be a considerable spanner in the works during a time that [Harry] is said to hope to heal the rift with his family. In particular, the clash between Meghan and Kate is still live and is a thorny issue. There’s bad blood on both sides, so this would only fuel it."
In January, the commentator revealed: "It’s likely that Harry is now in the mindset of trying to build bridges. A new year could hopefully provide a time of healing."
Harry and Meghan's recent "publicity stunt" with the anti-monarchist prime minister of Jamaica is also said to be just another "moment of treachery" from the California transplants, in the eyes of William and Kate. The future king and queen memorably met with Andrew Holness in March 2022 during their tour of the Caribbean, where the head of government was accused of purposefully waiting to be on camera with the pair to announce his anti-royal views.
Another palace insider piped up in October 2023 to update the world on the Fab Four rift. "They’re the first to admit it’s been a tough year, but everyone agrees William and Kate have done a wonderful job staying strong in the face of such adversity," they spilled.
"Kate has no desire to communicate with Harry or Meghan. There has been too much that has happened, and she’s not ready yet. William wants his relationship with his brother to improve, but they’re not speaking right now. So when that will happen is still uncertain," the anonymous source added.
William and Kate are believed to have not spoken to Harry or Meghan since the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on September 19, 2022. Based on both insider and expert revelations, this will likely continue.
