Prince Harry felt ‘sidelined’ by Prince William, says expert
It has been questioned whether Harry will appear on the balcony of Buckingham palace with his wife Meghan Markle and the rest of the Royal Family this summer. The couple were invited to join the Firm in celebrating the Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee after they paid a secret visit to see Her Majesty in April before heading to The Hague in the Netherlands for the Invictus Games. But Harry could miss out on the historic event after it was announced on Wednesday that he could play polo alongside his Los Padres teammates in California until mid-June.
If true, this would see Harry potentially compete in the Cheval Athletics USPA Intra-Circuit, which starts on the same weekend as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee events.
While Harry and Meghan’s recent visit to see the Queen was brief, they did manage to meet with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
However, they did not meet again. prince william and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, as the couple was on a skiing vacation with their children.
The last time Harry and William met was to unveil a statue of his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, in July last year.

Many royal watchers suggest that their relationship has yet to be mended since Harry and Meghan left the Royal Family in 2020 and continued to talk about their trials and tribulations to figures such as the American presenter Oprah Winfrey at an international level.
Since then, experts have tried to pinpoint the exact moment that indicated that relations between Harry and Meghan and the rest of the Firm had worsened.
Many have had trouble doing this, saying that a series of events were to blame for the ultimate consequences.
But others have argued that a sour relationship can be found in a smaller-scale feud between Harry and William that soon escalated into a family feud, something explored during the Channel 5 documentary ‘Royals at War’.

During the show, several royal insiders claimed that the now-infamous moment, when William is said to have warned Harry not to move too fast in his relationship with Meghan, it marked the moment when things spiraled out of control.
After several months of dating Meghan, William sat down with his brother and urged him to take it slow in their relationship, but Harry reportedly took offense at the suggestion.
Carole Malone, a female broadcaster, said: “The biggest cause of their supposed breakup was Will trying to warn Harry when he met Meghan not to be too hasty – he had only known her for less than a year when they got engaged.
“He sat him down and told him to slow down a little bit, not to run.”
Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine, said: “It all happened so fast William and Kate didn’t have time to meet Meghan because Harry barely knew Meghan.”
And Emily Andrews, a real author, added: “As multiple sources told me, he was furious and said ‘you’re trying to ruin this relationship before it even starts’.”

Katie Nicholl, another royal author, later claimed that it was at this point that their relationship “changed”.
She said: “And that was the moment, sources very close to the brothers told me, that the dynamic changed, that there was a change, and it was largely because Harry resented his brother.”
She offered her opinion on why Harry was so angry about the event, saying: “He supported William from the beginning of his relationship with Kate and was very disappointed that he wasn’t getting 100 per cent of his brother’s support with the relationship”. with Meghan, and things changed.”
Various reports of drama unfolding between Meghan and Kate abounded, but were later deemed fictional, with Cosmopolitan describing the suggestions as “ridiculous”.
In 2018, the Daily Telegraph camila tominey spoke to a royal who claimed Meghan “left Kate in tears” “after a fitting bridesmaids dress for Princess Charlotte.”

Meghan herself later dismissed these reports, stating that “the opposite happened” during her interview with Oprah.
However, Ms Tominey told This Morning last year that she stood by her report, and when asked if she thought Meghan’s denial of the report had been a lie, she said: “No, but I think, like any story, maybe it was more nuanced.” I originally reported it, I said that Kate was left crying and I said that she was confused, what had happened here? But I got it right and subsequently received messages saying the story was accurate.”
Shortly after claims of a feud between the duchesses surfaced, Mrs Nicholl released the bombshell report that it was in fact Harry and William who were not getting along.
Many observers later suggested that the two women were simply siding with their partners.
According to Ms Nicholl’s source, relations between the brothers took a definite turn at Christmas 2018, when Harry is said to have told William that he was not doing enough to include Meghan in the royal family.
The source told Ms Nicholl for Vanity Fair: “Harry felt that William was not rolling out the red carpet for Meghan and told her so.
“There were some fallouts, which were only resolved when Charles stepped in and asked William to make an effort.
“That’s when the Cambridges invited the Sussexes to spend Christmas with them.”
Mrs. Nicholl later claimed, “I don’t know if things will ever go back to the way they were between William and Harry.”

Subsequently, other symbolic gestures hinted at a burgeoning separation.
In June 2019, for example, Meghan and Harry officially parted ways with the joint charity they shared with Kate and William.
Cosmopolitan stated, “Honestly, it was just a logistical decision and had nothing to do with the drama.”
But that didn’t stop many from reading it as part of the ‘fight’.
In the same month, it was claimed that Harry and William weren’t speaking to each other before Archie’s birth, after Ms Nicholl told ET: “I was told by a very senior royal source that they weren’t actually speaking to each other at one point. .
“I certainly think that now that Archie is here, he’s probably really helped improve the relationship. William is delighted that his brother is a father.”
Harry and Meghan have since had a second child, Lilibetwhom the Queen, Charles and William have yet to meet in person.
