Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision of stepping back from their royal duties came out a shock for everyone.
A source revealed US Weekly magazine that “William was blindsided by Harry and Meghan’s decision and statement.
There have been so many rumors about the rift between two brothers. In 2018, Harry and Meghan moved from Nottingham Cottage in London to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, England and people speculated everything is not alright between the Royal brothers.
“There’s still a rift between the two brothers,” the insider told Us on January 8. “It’s sad because when they were younger, William would be the first person Harry would go to with big news like this.”
“William is incredibly hurt, but at the same time he has his own family to focus on and is trying to move forward with his life.”
“The other royals didn’t know of the statement,” royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told Us on Wednesday. “This really is extraordinary. It’s totally irresponsible.”
The couple shocked everyone when they announced they are stepping back from their role as senior royals.
The joint statement read: “We have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.”
We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.
This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.
