Most recently, it had appeared that Prince William and Prince Harry could still work well together despite their disagreements.
However, a new report is now claiming that the future king of the United Kingdom is working behind the scenes to make sure that Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, know that their nonsense will now go on notice, and he will take action to dispute them.
Despite all the drama, interviews, and bombshells, the two brothers put their differences aside when they appeared wearing matching suits to the unveiling ceremony of the statue of their late mother, Princess Diana, this month.
The siblings gave royal fans hope that they had started the healing process because they were all smiles. They arrived at the event that took place at the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace and were seen together for the first time since the funeral of Prince Philip in April.
However, almost immediately after Prince Harry’s landed in California, a negative story leaked via his friend and reporter, Omid Scobie.
Royal author Scobie hinted that Prince William’s team leaked embarrassing stories to the media about Prince Harry’s mental health.
He stated: “I would say that it was no coincidence that it was shortly after that aired, even the next day, there were source quotes that came from a senior aide at Kensington Palace saying that William was worried about his brother’s mental health.”
He went on to explain the consequences of Prince William’s staff sharing the ugly story about Prince Harry: “That fed off such an ugly thing for Harry and it did not go unnoticed. Now, whether William directed that or not, no one will ever know, but it came from his household that he is the boss of.”
The story did not sit well with Kate Middleton‘s husband, who took measures behind the scene to refute the claims that he leaked the story about Prince Harry.
Some media outlets deleted the story. At the same time, the producers for the documentary Harry and William: What Went Wrong? were forced to modify their reporting and commentary on the topic.
Royal experts say that it all points to the new and fed-up Duke of Cambridge, who has decided that he will no longer accept the lies being spread about himself and the rest of the royal family.
Journalist Jo Elvin said: “It is another sign that William is keen to correct what he sees as untruths.”
The Mail‘s Royal Editor Rebecca English added: “We are not going to be seeing William complain about any article or program. But what is clear is that there is a line in the sand for him. The suggestion that he had briefed about his brother and mental health issues was just a step too far for him.”
The Mail on Sunday‘s writer Charlotte Griffiths shared her point of view by saying: “Most people thought the main blame for the fall-out was not Meghan, but instead the brothers themselves. A new picture is emerging that William is much tougher in this situation than we previously thought. He is very, very firm. He was much tougher behind the scenes very early on. He was not taking any more nonsense from very early on, it seems.”
It seems Prince William’s new way of doing business has calmed things down because the negative stories have stopped leaking, and Prince Harry and his wife are now seeking to make peace with the royals.
