Royal Family News: Prince Williams Invitation
Royal Family news reveals that Harry and the Duchess of Sussex spoke to Times reporter Tom Bradbury in 2019 in an interview that was released while Prince William and his wife Catherine, Princess of Wales were touring Pakistan. According to 7 News, during the interview, Meghan spoke of her struggle with life in the Royal spotlight as a newly married mother, while Harry revealed that he and his brother the now-Prince of Wales were on “different paths.”
William had sent his brother a message asking for a meeting as he feared his brother was in “crisis.” Now, Page Six reports, a new book is claiming that a potential reconciliation meeting between the two brothers never went down because Harry was terrified of the press finding out.
What Made Prince Harry Back Out?
Royal expert, Valentine Low who authored the upcoming book “Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown,” wrote that William, 40, wanted to speak to his brother, who he feared was in “crisis,” but the Duke of Sussex bowed out of the meeting. The Duke of Cambridge allegedly messaged Harry to ask if the two could meet up following Harry and Meghan’s explosive interview given while they were on their South African tour, per The Sun.
The younger sibling reportedly agreed to the meeting, initially, in order to heal the divide that was opening between the two in the wake of The Sussex’s attacks on the monarchy. However, when Harry discovered that William’s private secretary would be privy to the meeting, allowing for Prince William to “take time out of the diary,” Harry reportedly turned down the offer quickly and dramatically.
Was it Fear of the Press?
Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown makes a lot of shocking allegations about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle surrounding their time as working royals. Low claims that Harry was “concerned” enough that William’s team would leak news of the visit to the press that he decided not to see his brother rather than risk the news getting to the papers.
The book outlines the chaos that erupted in the wake of the Cambridge’s Pakistani tour when Harry and Meghan spoke from the garden in Johannesburg, per MailOnline.
