‘Royal expert’: Meghan Markle is hindering détente between Princes Harry and William

April 8, 2024

The intricacies of royal relationships have once again come under scrutiny as the rift between Prince Harry/Meghan Markle and Prince William/Kate Middleton, persists. Despite attempts at reconciliation, the specter of estrangement looms large, with royal expert Tom Quinn shedding light on the ongoing saga, reports Marca, Spain’s national daily sport newspaper.

Quinn suggests that while efforts have been made from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge‘s side to extend an olive branch, Meghan Markle’s purported grievances on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s side are proving to be a stumbling block.

In an interview with Britain’s The Mirror, Quinn remarked on the challenge faced by Prince William and Kate Middleton in their bid to mend fences—particularly in light of Kate’s recent illness, which traditionally tends to bring families together.

There has been a shift here since Kate’s illness. Harry and Meghan do feel they need to extend an olive branch, but Meghan’s sense of grievance is still preventing anything really meaningful happening,” Quinn remarked.

Despite Prince Harry’s purported desire for reconciliation, Quinn underscores Meghan’s influence—suggesting that until she feels adequately appeased by the Royal Family’s actions and apologies, any meaningful progress may remain elusive.

Quinn also revealed recent attempts by William and Kate to bridge the gap—including a suggestion to bring together both families and their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, for a visit to the UK. However, Meghan’s reported reluctance to entertain the idea has hindered progress.

There is no way Meghan would bring the children to the UK. William and Kate have suggested that Meghan and Harry bring the children and that the two couples and their families try to make up, but the suggestion is not leading anywhere so far,” Quinn stated.

The strained relations stem from a series of public disagreements, including the Sussexes’ revelations in their Netflix docuseries and their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, further exacerbated tensions, with detailed accounts of heated exchanges and accusations against his brother and sister-in-law.
