Prince Harry and Prince William being pulled apart as Kate and Meghan reportedly 'don't really get on'
A close friend of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has come forward and suggested that any kind of unease that exists is between the princes' wives
Prince William and Prince Harry have always had a pretty close relationship, so the two brothers living apart has come as a shock to most royal fans. If anything, the two brothers solidified their relationship after the tragic loss of their mother, Princess Diana, but now it looks like their wives are the reason for the crack in their relationship.
According to a recent report, Harry and Meghan Markle are planning to move out of Kensington Palace next year and set up their own residence at Frogmore House. And the reason for this separation between the brothers is none other than their spouses, Meghan and Kate, who according to a palace source "don't really get on."
A close friend of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has come forward and suggested that any kind of unease that exists is between the princes' wives. "Kate and Meghan are very different people," the source said, adding: "They don’t really get on."
However, if one were to look at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's move into Frogmore House in a more practical way, it would make a hell lot of more sense. Reports say that Frogmore has ten bedrooms compared to just two at Nottingham Cottage, which is where Prince Harry and Meghan have set up their residence.
Moving to Frogmore would also allow Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, who has recently moved to the UK following her daughter's pregnancy, to join the couple at home. The new house would also ensure that the couple can have separate living quarters for the nanny of their future kid.
However, before Meghan and Harry's move, Frogmore is said to be undergoing a multi-million-pound refit, which will essentially be paid for by the taxpayers. It is being set up as soon as possible so that the couple can have the house fully functional by the time the Duchess of Sussex is ready to give birth.
Palace sources said there was "nothing available as an official residence in London." One said: "They are expecting a baby early next year and obviously need a bit more space. It is not like this has just come up."
Earlier this year, it was reported that Prince Harry and William would soon be looking at a formal division of their joint household at Kensington Palace. At the time, it was said that separate courts would "better reflect their very different duties and needs" following Harry’s marriage to Meghan.
