Prince Harry doesn't want to live in the shadow of his brother William anymore, say the royal's friends
Meghan and Harry are planning their move so that Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, could come live with them and become a hands-on grandmother for their expected child
When Kensington Palace announced the news this weekend of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's future plans to move into Frogmore House in Windsor, a lot of royal fans speculated it to be the end of the royal 'bromance' between late Princess Diana's two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Sources close to the Duchess of Sussex, who is currently pregnant with her first child, say that Prince Harry has become extremely tired of living in the shadow of his older brother William and sister-in-law Kate, and he no longer wants to be a resident of their magnificent home.
The friend explained, "Harry knows he will always be in William’s shadow and for many years he has felt like a bit of a spare wheel, dragging along behind his brother and Kate. Now he has a life of his own and a family of his own. It is perfectly natural to want to be more independent."
"This isn’t the end of a great relationship but the start of something new. Harry and William will always be close, but they don’t have to be twins." According to other friends of the royals, Harry realized that Meghan and Kate were not going to be close friends, which further sharpened the royals' relationship dynamics with each other.
One said: "His priorities have changed. It’s now about his wife, his family. He’s not trying to please anyone else." It was only a few months ago that Prince William, Kate, Prince Harry, and Meghan were collectively called the 'Fab Four' by royal fans, but now things seem to be rapidly changing between them.
One royal aide said, "Even The Beatles broke up eventually. The brothers aren’t children anymore, they’re approaching middle age very fast."
Kensington Palace, which made the official announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan's move to Frogmore house over the weekend, tried very hard to play down any claims of a rift, either between the brothers or their wives. A spokesman said: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will move to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate early next year as they prepare for the arrival of their first child."
"Windsor is a very special place for their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate. The Duke and Duchess’s office will continue to be based at Kensington Palace."
