THE rift between Prince Harry and Prince William could be blown wide open by the Duke of Cambridge’s upcoming US visit, according to one royal commentator.
The brothers are not believed to be on the best terms since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex aired their tell all interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021. But Prince William’s upcoming visit to New York could stoke the fire even further, coming not long after Prince Harry made an appearance at the United Nations conference just a month ago.
Columnist Daniela Elser wrote for news.au: “That William is now undertaking a New York climate event of his very own, and with all the opportunities to flaunt his statesman credentials, may well only inflame family tensions further.”
Ms Elser continued: “Whether entirely coincidental or not, this all feels like William not so much treading on his younger brother’s toes but enthusiastically clog dancing over Harry’s bare feet.”
The end of this year could be a difficult one for the family, with the added pressure of Prince Harry’s memoir, expected before Christmas, and his visit to the UK in September.
She said: “Between the Sussexes descending on London, William launching himself on the US market and the mystery of Harry’s book all nearly simultaneously bubbling away, are things about to reach boiling point?”
