Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have split the Royal household and moved out of the palace and into Frogmore Castle in Windsor, a longtime royal filmmaker has revealed that the feud in the family is not between Meghan and Kate Middleton. Instead, the rift is between brothers Prince Harry and Prince William.
Royal filmmaker Nick Bullen says that all families have a falling out at some point. But, the one between Harry and William just happens to be taking place in front of the entire world.
“I think people don’t want to think about that with these two boys. These are two boys who lost their mother [Princess Diana] at a really early age, and the fairytale is that they are closer than ever and need each other, and I think that’s probably true. But, equally, they are two grown men in their 30s, starting their own families, different wives. They are moving to different parts of the country, different duties.”
Bullen says that both Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth are working hard to reunite the family.
According to Us Weekly, even though the problem was between the brothers, the rumors focused on the Duchesses because it was a “much sexier story.” The narrative of two glamorous women – one who is an American and former actress, and the other a Brit who will one day be Queen – at war with each other was a juicier story than two brothers who have hit a rough patch in their relationship.

The theme of this year’s service was ‘A Connected Commonwealth’. The Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, sent a Commonwealth Day message in which HM highlighted how people around the world are drawn together because of the collective values shared by the Commonwealth. 📷PA
However, calling it a “feud” is a little overblown, says an insider. William and Harry may not be the best of friends at the moment, and they aren’t speaking to each other every day. But that doesn’t mean they hate each other.
When it comes to Meghan and Kate, they are two women who are in a worldwide spotlight, and that is a ton of pressure. No one can relate to what they are going through, so it is a common bond between them that can’t be broken.
Kensington Palace confirmed last week that Harry and Meghan had officially split households from William and Kate, but it was a long-planned move.

Earlier this month, William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan all reunited at Buckingham Palace when they attended an event celebrating Prince Charles.
