Moving fast: the main gist of a rift
There were rumors of a rift between our two princes. Although they have had a close bond throughout their lives. Things seem to change after Harry began dating his now-wife Meghan Markle.
William felt Harry was moving too fast with the relationship. It all started after Harry decided to marry Meghan, less than a year into the relationship. Moreover, Harry and Meghan married on May 19, 2018. Welcomed first son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor on May 6, 2019.
Things were not this same in William’s life. He dated his wife Kate Middleton during his college days. They dated eight years before getting married in April 2011. So, it is pretty obvious for William to feel some sort of hurriedness regarding Harry’s decision.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

Addressing the rumors, Prince Harry the Duke of Sussex told:
“Inevitably stuff happens, but we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers. We’re certainly on different paths at the moment. I’ll always be there for him and as I know, he’ll always be there for me, We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy but I love him dearly.”
Officially split from Kensington Palace
Other than formal appearances, Willian and Harry do not seem to spend much time together. The brothers were residents of Kensington Palace for years in the home of their late mother, Princess Diana.
This foursome has officially split in March, breaking their joint “court” at Kensington Palace by creating two separate offices. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved out of London to Windsor Castle’s Frogmore Cottage. This is about 25 miles away and also launched its own Instagram page.
“The majority of stuff is created out of nothing, as brothers, we have good days and we have bad days.”

“If an international ban on mines can be secured it means, looking far ahead, that the world may be a safer place for this generation's grandchildren.” – Princess Diana, 1997 Today in Angola The Duke of Sussex will retrace his mother’s steps to see the legacy of her work and how her connection with this community helped make the elimination of landmines a reality. In 1997 Diana Princess of Wales visited Huambo to bring global attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed. Two decades later, the area has transformed from desolate and uninhabitable to lively and vibrant, with colleges, schools and small businesses. The Duke is humbled to be visiting a place and a community that was so special to his mother, and to recognise her tireless mission as an advocate for all those she felt needed her voice the most, even if the issue was not universally popular. Princess Diana’s visit helped change the course of history, and directly led to the Convention against Anti-Personal Landmines, also known as the Ottawa Treaty. Today, with the support of @thehalotrust, Angola now has a stated aim under the Treaty to be clear of known mines by 2025. Despite great progress, 60 million people worldwide still live in fear of landmines every day. During his visit today, The Duke will walk along the street which was once the minefield where his mother was famously pictured. #RoyalTourAfrica #RoyalVisitAngola Photo©️PA
Harry lived with more freedom
This move is believed in an effort to form their own as only weeks before Meghan gave birth to Archie. As of now, there has not been any official confirmation, regarding the pair changing their roles in the royal family.
William is set to be King of England one day alongside wife Kate. This also means Harry is the sixth in line to the throne. As a person from a royal family, Harry has lived with more freedom, particularly also choosing his wife.
There is no doubt Harry and Meghan make the perfect couples thing. But Meghan’s bi-racial background, American citizenship, and career as an actor made her an unconventional choice for a royal family.
