After years of being thought to be at odds with one other, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are establishing a strong bond with Prince William and Kate Middleton, according to a royal expert.
Prince Harry and Prince William are repairing their relationship, according to Stewart Pearce, while Kate and Meghan are close. “I know the four are talking to one another, and they’re talking by Zoom [and] FaceTime,” Stewart Pearce told US Weekly.
“They’re very close with one another.”
According to Pearce, Harry, 36, and the Suits star, 40, are “very different” from William and Kate, both 39.
“Their lens on the world is highly individualized. And what’s remarkable is that they all totally respect [each other], but this lens is different,” Pearce added.
Only 18 months after their wedding in 2018, Harry and Meghan opted to quit the UK royal family.
The royal couples’ discussions are “informal,” according to Pearce, with “Kate cooking dinner in the kitchen” and her husband “making cups of tea” as they converse with the Sussexes across the pond.
In the 2019 ITV documentary “Harry & Meghan: An African Journey” Prince Harry initially suggested that he and his older brother were “on different paths.” He and Markle revealed their decision to stand down as senior working royals a few months later.
In January 2020, a source told Us, “William was blindsided by Harry and Meghan’s decision and statement. William is incredibly hurt, but at the same time he has his own family to focus on and is trying to move forward with his life.”
Following Harry and Meghan’s candid appearance with Oprah Winfrey in March, tensions have heightened.
So far this year, Prince Charles’ sons have reconnected twice: first during Prince Philip’s funeral in April and again in July for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue. Sharing emotional moments appeared to lift the boys’ spirits above the drama.
In July, a source exclusively disclosed, “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.”
Prince William and Prince Harry’s interactions at the occasion drew varied reactions, but according to Pearce, they seemed at ease with each other. They “detonated the essence of peac,.” he believed.
Since the arrival of Meghan and Harry’s baby Lilibet, Kate and Meghan have allegedly resumed talking.
