Meghan believes Harry and William will patch up their differences eventually: 'Her conscience is clear'
She’s not beating herself up for things she can’t control, says an insider
Although Meghan Markle considers herself somewhat responsible for the ongoing drama between the royal brothers, Princes William and Harry, she believes that the sibling feud will not last forever.
As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex gear up for the official end of their tenure as working members of the royal family on March 31, a source told US Weekly that Meghan's “conscience is clear and she’s not beating herself up for things she can’t control.” The insider added that the former 'Suits' star also believed that Harry and William “will patch things up eventually."
In an interview for the ITV documentary, titled, 'Harry & Meghan: An African Journey,' which aired in October, last year, Harry confirmed what up till then was a rumored rift between him and the Duke of Cambridge.
"Part of this role, part of this job, this family, being under the pressure which it's under, inevitably stuff happens. But we are brothers. We will always be brothers," he said.
"We are certainly on different paths at the moment, but I will always be there for him, and as I know he will always be there for me. We don't see each other as much as we used to as we are so busy. But I love him dearly and you know the majority of the stuff is probably — well, the majority of the stuff is created out of nothing. But as brothers, you have good days and you have bad days."
The brothers were also forced to issue a joint statement, slamming a newspaper report on January 13, this year, describing a severe strain in their relationship, owing to Harry being subjected to "bullying" inside the palace walls by William.
The statement called the story offensive and potentially harmful as the siblings entered into Megxit talks.
“Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a UK newspaper today speculating about the relationship between the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge,” the princes’ spokespeople said. “For brothers who care so deeply about the issues surrounding mental health, the use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially harmful.”
Following Harry and Meghan's announcement that they were going to step down as senior members of the royal family, it was reported that William was distraught and frustrated by his younger brother's decision to redefine roles within the royal family. “William’s done everything in his power to help his brother over the years and feels totally let down by his ‘reckless’ and ‘selfish’ actions,” the insider said. “The way he sees it, Harry’s thrown all the good advice he gave him back in his face.”
Nevertheless, the Queen at the time urged the brothers "to put on a united front" despite allegedly being "furious" herself. “But right now, William and Harry refuse to make amends — they’re both being stubborn, especially Harry,” the source added.
Even when William attended the Commonwealth Day Service in London's Westminster Abbey, on March 9 alongside Harry, Meghan and many of the royal family members - which was the last time the brothers were seen out in the public together - he appeared to be suppressing his anger, as analyzed by body language expert Patti Wood.
