But before he left London, Harry reportedly took care of some other very important business: mending fences with his older brother, Prince William. Rumors of a rift between the brothers have been rampant for the past two years—with their wives, Markle and Kate Middleton being dragged into the press coverage too. Now, according to The Sun, the boys are back on better terms. “William and Harry have spent time together privately away from the official Sandringham Summit working on their relationship and discussing their future,” a royal source told the paper. “It has been ground-breaking in terms of saving their bond as brothers and has been totally driven by them.”
The Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge apparently joined in on the conversations as well. “But Kate and Meghan, who was in Canada, did join in with some of the talks on more than one occasion—which is another sign of a real thaw in their relationship,” the source continued. “Things are better.”
So what allegedly changed? Well, Prince Harry’s big move to North America for one thing. “Given Harry is now permanently moving away, there was a realisation if they didn’t sort things out now, they never would,” The Sun reports. “They decided to cut out all the toxic people stirring around them to deal with each other man-to-man as brothers.” Of course, as with any family, nothing is totally smooth—especially when your family business is the monarchy. But it sounds as though things are on the right track. According to the paper, “Of course there have been serious differences in opinions but the family warmth is back. And they’re sad they’re going to be so far apart.”
Sounds like it’s time to start planning a family vacation.
