While their relationship has not been good for several months, it so happens that before Prince Harry’s departure from the royal family, his brother William had a gesture towards him, which was not without good intentions towards him.
Prince William not so closed towards his brother? Last March, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially left the British Royal Family, renouncing their official duties to embark on a new life in California.
An announcement that was a sledgehammer blow for the Windsor family, but also for Prince William, who was forced to live away from his brother, on whom he had relied for several years. But as the Megxit was fast approaching in March, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex honoured their last family engagements on Commonwealth Day. And on that day, Prince William made a special gesture to his brother.
Although he was said to be cold and aloof towards the Sussex couple when he entered Westminster Abbey with his wife Kate Middleton, the Duke of Cambridge had decided not to go up the nave with Elizabeth II and Prince Charles as tradition dictates, because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had been excluded from the royal procession. “He therefore decided that he and Kate would be happy to dispense with the procession and take their places, without ceremony, in the assembly,” Robert Lacey told Point de vue.
The Megxit, the best decision for Meghan and Harry
A thoughtful gesture that was perhaps intended to patch things up with his brother Harry, who was there for his last royal engagement with the family. Since then, it is in California, with Meghan Markle and her son Archie, that the prince has been living.
A Megxit which proved to be the best solution the Sussex couple found to stand on its own two feet, and which according to Robert Lacey would be an initiative of Prince Harry himself, supported by his wife. And which, according to his wife, was “the best decision” for their family, even if it was not “very popular” in their entourage.
