Royal brothers, Harry and William might have mended their relationship a bit during Diana’s statue unveiling ceremony in July, but they are not likely to spend their holidays together, Jonathan Sacerdoti, royal expert and London correspondent, told US Weekly.
Sacerdoti told in detail to the US about the royal members coming together:
“It’s perhaps unlikely that they’re going to be spending what we would think of as quality family time together at Christmas and New Years and birthdays,” The magazine further wrote, “While the recent birth of Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle’s daughter, Lilibet, brought everyone a little closer, there is still a distance that exists between everyone.”
“Just remember that the queen hasn’t met her latest granddaughter. It doesn’t seem likely that she’s going to anytime soon. She’s barely seen Archie for quite a while,” Sacerdoti noted. “On a human family level, forgetting them being the royal family, there’s already quite some frostiness and distance there. So I suspect if things can go well, [then] maybe they’ll have the occasional meeting, but I don’t think it seems very high on anyone’s agenda.”
After the Duke of Sussex stepped down from his royal duties permanently, the relationship between William and Harry took a turn. However, they put on a united front during their reunion at the statue unveiling of their late mother.
At the start of this month, a source told the US following their public event in the UK that: “William and Harry spent the morning before the statue unveiling looking through old keepsakes, notes from Diana and bonding.”
“They have absolutely turned a new page in their relationship and have started the healing. Everyone around them was thrilled to see how close they were on the day of the statue unveiling.”
Duchess Kate and Meghan, 39 had personal issues in the past but they have been trying to reconnect – a second insider revealed.
A source said, “Kate has been reaching out to Meghan a lot more since [Lilibet] was born, she’s sending [notes and] gifts and trying to build up a relationship, the firm has been instructing staffers to reach out more to Harry and Meghan to get them to soften a bit.”
Sacerdoti explained that there isn’t “animosity” between the siblings.
William and Harry were very close in the past but now the bonding between them is not such strong.
“It’s like any family. Sometimes we keep closer contact with people than other times, and some people we stay more in touch with than others. So I think just the very distance between the United States and the United Kingdom and the complications of either part of this family being able to travel means that jetting backward and forwards isn’t necessarily going to happen though,” he clarified.
