WINDSOR, UK: With Meghan and Harry on a trip to the UK and to Germany, there were many wondering if the Sussexes and Cambridges would meet up, despite no indication from either family. Now, it has come to light that Prince William was not even aware of his little brother crossing the Atlantic — he found out about the trip from a news report.

This implies that the lack of communication between the two brothers is even more stark than it has ever been before. With The Sussexes taking up residence at the Frogmore Cottage during their stay in the UK, chances of them visiting the Cambridges were possible. However, this is no longer the case, despite the two families currently living in close proximity to one another in Windsor

Notably, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had recently moved to the Adelaide Cottage with all three of their children. Their new residence is merely a 15-minute walk from the Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. However, there are no plans of either visiting the other.

Today would have been the 60th birthday of Princess Diana, who died in 1997. At a ceremony here today, her sons Prince William and Prince Harry, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex respectively, will unveil a statue in her memory.

According to The Telegraph, Omid Scobie, who acts as the unofficial UK mouthpiece and biographer of the Sussexes, has written, "the true story is they never reached out to the Cambridges." He further adds that the two brothers have reached a deadlock, with neither making the next move. "What [Harry] is waiting for is accountability… Many lines were crossed by William. He was at the centre of a number of painful moments, be it the actions of his own staff or turning his back when support was needed. It was a dark time and one that, so far, William has been unprepared to unpack," said Scobie, also quoting an unnamed source who is a family friend of the Royals.

The British journalist and writer also added that there is tension between the Cambridges and the Sussexes because the former feel a lack of mistrust towards the latter, owing to the constant replaying of family matters to the public by Harry and Meghan. This has heightened ever since the news of Prince Harry's upcoming memoir has begun making the rounds. According to the source, the Royal family has been kept in complete darkness over the contents of the book, which may be used as a tool to settle scores.
