Ignoring their problems. According to an insider speaking exclusively to Us Weekly’s new issue, Prince William’s public reunion with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle “wasn’t an easy decision” for the royal to make.

The decision by the Prince of Wales to welcome mourners alongside his brother, 37, following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II was made because it was “agreed by all of them” that it was the right thing to do, a source tells Us.
The insider claimed that William, 40, didn’t want any controversy to detract from his grandmother’s legacy.
The source says, “Despite all of their past disagreements, many of which still lingered, this was what The Queen would have wanted and William knew very well that it was not the time to be harboring resentments or separating himself from his brother.” For her sake, the sake of the monarchy as a whole, and the sake of the people she selflessly served during her reign, they needed to put up a united front and pay their respects.
William and his wife, Duchess Kate, were captured on camera on Saturday, September 10 in Windsor, England, meeting throngs of well-wishers. Harry and Meghan, both 41, joined the couple, who have three children together: Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, a few days after Elizabeth, 96, passed away.

It’s unfortunate because when they were younger, Harry would go to William first with important news like this.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have a 3-year-old son named Archie and a 15-month-old daughter named Lili, made their exit official in February of the following year before relocating to California. The two have been open about the difficulties they encountered while residing in the UK.

On Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast in May 2021, Harry said, “It’s a cross between The Truman Show and living in a zoo.” “The main problem for me was that you inherit the risk when you’re born into it. You are forced to inherit every component of it. Additionally, they feel like they own you because of the way the British media operates.
In my early 20s, I was in the mindset that I didn’t want this work, he continued. How am I ever going to settle down, find a wife, and start a family when I know this is going to happen again, considering what it did to my mother? I’ve had a peek behind the scenes, so I am familiar with how this business operates. I do not wish to participate in this. Once I began seeing a therapist, the bubble suddenly popped.
