In a startling development within the British royal family, Prince Harry has expressed feelings of distress and exclusion following a series of perceived snubs at significant royal events. Sources close to the situation have revealed that Harry is attributing these exclusions to his brother, Prince William, fueling further tensions between the siblings.
Central to this rift is the controversy surrounding the Duke of Winchester, Hugh Grosvenor's wedding in June. Reports indicate that Prince Harry suspects Prince William's influence in Hugh's decision not to extend an invitation to Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle.
Hugh Grosvenor, who holds the significant position of being a godfather to both Prince William's eldest son, Prince George, and Harry's son, Prince Archie, appears to have made this choice to avoid potential conflicts with the Royal Family.
Royal Rift Intensifies
Contradicting these reports, an insider associated with the Suss*xes claimed that the couple did receive a preliminary invitation to the wedding. However, they chose to decline to prevent any uncomfortable encounters with Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton.
This decision underlines the ongoing rift within the royal family, heightened by the couple's decision to step back from royal duties. In Touch magazine recently reported that Prince Harry is privately aggrieved, believing that Prince William has orchestrated various social exclusions and snubs against him and his family.
A source remarked, "The fact that Harry and Meghan are being excluded from these types of events is a clear sign the British aristocracy has closed the door on them”. The source also lamented the change in public perception of the Suss*xes, noting that while Meghan initially brought a refreshing change, the constant controversies and negativity surrounding them have led many to distance themselves.
Despite Meghan's efforts to console him, Prince Harry reportedly remains disheartened. “Being such an unpopular figure is an extremely difficult reality to live with,” the insider noted, highlighting the complex and challenging situation the Duke of Suss*x finds himself in amidst ongoing family tensions and public scrutiny.
