Royal enthusiasts worldwide are captivated by the evolving relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry. Once known for their close bond, the sons of the late Princess Diana and King Charles have experienced a noticeable rift. Omid Scobie, a royal expert, sheds light on the complexities of their relationship.

The brothers have been entangled in a royal feud that has puzzled many. The tension escalated following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s revealing interviews, including Meghan’s 2022 interview with The Cut and their Netflix docuseries “Harry & Meghan“. These events have intensified the scrutiny of the royal family.

This discord can be traced back to around Christmas 2018. Royal reporter Katie Nicholl reported that the feud was not between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, as previously speculated, but between Harry and William. The conflict reportedly arose when Harry felt William wasn’t welcoming Meghan into the royal family adequately.

An incident that caught public attention was during a Christmas gathering at Sandringham, where a video suggested William was cold towards Meghan. This was further fueled by media narratives like TLC’s documentary “Kate v. Meghan: Princesses at War?”.

In May, following a visit by William and Kate to Harry and Meghan’s Frogmore Cottage, there seemed to be a temporary improvement in relations. However, the brothers’ relationship remained strained, even during significant family events like Prince Philip’s funeral.

The unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue brought the brothers together, but their relationship continued to be distant. Harry even suggested hiring a mediator to improve their dynamics. Despite these efforts, their bond remained cool.

Omid Scobie’s book “Endgame” delves into this ongoing feud and its implications for the monarchy. He reveals that Prince William, once more averse to media attention than Harry, now finds himself in a challenging position as the future king. The release of Prince Harry’s memoir “Spare” added to the public disclosures that began with the infamous Oprah Winfrey interview, further complicating the brothers’ relationship.
