According to the recently published reading, ‘Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Formation of a Modern Royal Family’, Harry distanced himself from William to protect his wife.
Their relationship is still icy as William remains distraught over the fallout on Megxit. “It’s not anger, it’s hurt,” said a source.
“We have to design a system to protect the complete shutdown of the monarchy,” a source said during a palace retreat before Harry and Meghan moved from Kensington Palace to Windsor.
“The future of this monarchy rests solely on the four people currently at Kensington Palace. The popularity of the public is not theirs, ”said the insider, launching a war cry. “When [Prince Charles] becomes king, the only way it lasts is if the four of them aren’t at war.
As Harry and Meghan now spend their days working on their new charity business, Archewell, at their home in California with their one-year-old son Archie, a friend of Harry’s admitted it would take time to heal the wounds of the family.
The pair were put together by friends Misha Noonoo, a designer, and Markus Anderson, the book confirms for the first time. But when the former “Suits” actress stepped into the prince’s life, one senior royal called the American “Harry’s showgirl,” while another told an aide that “she comes with a lot. of luggage ”.

William didn’t know much about Meghan and she expected him to “grill” her when they first met. Instead, his future brother-in-law told him that he “couldn’t wait to meet the girl who put that silly smile on my brother’s face.”
Harry was aware of the gossip about his wife. “He’s extremely protective of Meghan. He understands that a lot of people are against them, and he will do whatever he can to keep her safe and away from getting hurt – even if that means distancing himself from those people, ”said a close friend of its authors Omid. Scobie and Carolyn Durand.
So Harry started blocking his brother.
As for William’s wife, Kate, she is “an extremely guarded person,” a friend told the book.
“The distance came from both directions. Harry spent less time visiting the kids, but William and Kate’s invitations were the first to dry up, ”a source said. “Kate hasn’t done much to bridge the gap. She was fiercely loyal to her husband and his family.
