Prince Harry is one of the most popular members of the Royal Family. The younger son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana was the more bubbly one compared to Prince William, which is why a lot of people were shocked when he suddenly decided to turn his back on the life that he had always known.
Earlier this year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they will be stepping down as senior royals. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex withdrew from their roles just two years after they tied the knot.
Many believe that Meghan Markle has a strong influence on Prince Harry and some royal fans are even convinced that she is the brains behind their decision to quit royal life. However, a new report revealed that the Duke of Sussex already showed signs of unhappiness before their withdrawal.
“Did you pick up on the fact that they weren’t happy?” Ann Gripper said in the podcast Pod Save The Queen, to which body language expert Judi James replied, “She clearly played it very well.”
Judi James added that Meghan Markle never showed her grief and pointed out that her "actress side" may have helped her with that. On the other hand, Prince Harry clearly showed his emotions and that he changed so much. The body language expert also noted that the rift between the Duke of Sussex and his older brother Prince William was pretty obvious.
Prince William and Prince Harry used to be really close, but many have noticed that they were drifting apart after the Duke of Sussex married Meghan Markle in 2018. Royal expert Camilla Tominey previously said that five months after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding, the royal brothers appeared to be distant from each other.
Although Prince William and Prince Harry were happy and close during the latter’s nuptials, earlier reports claimed that the Duke of Cambridge already voiced his concerns before the wedding regarding how fast his brother and the former actress’ relationship was going.
While Prince William only meant well when he advised Prince Harry to slow things down, the Duke of Sussex, reportedly, didn’t take it well as he saw it as criticism. He was also upset that he felt that his older brother was not being supportive of his relationship with Meghan Markle.
Speculations about Prince William and Prince Harry’s feud started in February 2019, and events after that ignited the rumors even more. The Sussexes suddenly removed themselves from their joint foundation with the Cambridges, which seemingly confirmed the rift between the famous couples.
