In Battle of Brothers, a book published by historian Robert Lacey, we learn that in addition to a final icy reunion between members of the royal family, the Megxit gave birth to a very harsh statement from the eldest son. of Prince Charles.
It is no longer even an open secret, but a reality known to all: the tea towel burns between Prince William and his brother Harry. And the origin of their quarrel goes back a very long time, long before the arrival of Meghan Markle in the life of Duke of Sussex, things seem to have gone from bad to worse with the resounding Megxit of last January. The fact that the younger brother and his actress wife chose to part ways with their engagements with the British royal family created a rift that cannot be repaired. They now lead their lives as they hear from the California side, deciding to engage politically against Donald Trump to the chagrin of the good habits and customs of the crown. As she also recalled live on American television last night, Meghan Markle chose exile for the sake of her son Archie. A baby that even Queen Elizabeth no longer takes care to evoke and of which no trace or symbol appears Buckingham.

A meeting that smells of sulfur
And here is a shocking book, baptized Battle of Brothers and written by serious historian Robert Lacey, brings a new set of details on the rift between the two former inseparable brothers. The sons of prince charles and of lady Diana failed to come to an agreement at the most critical moment of the current year. On January 8, the announcement falls. Two days before, Harry and Meghan returned from their trip and specifically asked to meet with the family. A Queen’s Counsel lets them know it won’t be possible until the end of the month. Exasperated, they decide to rush things and post their decision to go away for good. Crisis meeting follows. Each party, armed with its private secretary, is invited to have tea around Lilibeth, at Sandringham Castle, to take stock and convince the refractories to retrace their steps.
“I can not do this anymore…”
But William, very upset too, refuses the previous lunch and confides in a friend that he “would much rather pass all the bargaining to the advisers”. The facade smiles and good manners disappear when he arrives at the family meeting. The atmosphere is freezing. And before making the effort to move, the husband of Kate Middleton blurted out this murderous sentence to the participants about Harry: “I have put my arms around my brother’s shoulders all of our life, and I can’t do it anymore. We are separate entities.”. Their grandmother won’t change that this time around. The separation is over, the Sussexes and the Cambridges have nothing to do with each other and will no longer pretend to appreciate each other.
