connectVideoRoyal expert claims prince Harry and prince William may have argued about Meghan Markle

Prince William ‘ s care for his younger brother Harry may have caused a gap that still continues today, says a royal expert.

Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry will join Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William on March 5 for a morning reception at Buckingham Palace, despite the persistent reports claiming the royal family at war, Fox News learned Wednesday.

A rep for Buckingham Palace confirmed to Fox News the reception will mark the upcoming 50th birthday of Prince Charles’ investiture (on 1 July), when he was formally made the Prince of Wales.


Besides Charles, 70, and his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, his wife Duchess of Cornwall Camilla and his sister Princess Anne will be present.

“Among the guests will be leading figures in the Welsh and uk public life, as well as representatives of The Prince of Wales, many Welsh charities and patronages,” a rep from Buckingham Palace confirmed to Fox News in a written statement. “The Inauguration Regalia worn by The Prince of Wales in 1969, will be exhibited, including the Inauguration Coronet, Sword, the Ring and the Rod, as well as the Letters of Patent for the creation of Charles, Duke of Cornwall, the Prince of Wales in 1958.”

Brothers William and Harry were last seen in public, together with their wives at their annual Christmas day church outing. However, royal experts have insisted that Prince William’s worry for his younger brother Harry may have caused a rift that still continues today.

Princess Diana’s former butler Paull Burrell claimed William, 36, will not be happy to hear that Markle, 37, had a star-studded baby shower on the other side of the pond.


The 60-year-old previously served as a bear to Elizabeth, 92, before he began working for his mother Diana, the late Princess of Wales.

“I think Prince William will be angry by all Meghan luxury, extravagance this week and the fact that her baby shower looked so ‘celebrity’ in place of ‘royal,’ he wrote for The Sun and Friday. “He has worked for many years with the press to give them what they want, but also gets what he wants back privacy. Meghan is doing exactly what he is not — love all the attention for her and her baby.”

Burrell pointed out that while Middleton, 37, had a baby shower for their firstborn, Prince George, that the celebration “was [a] very own contained thing.”

“I think William and Kate Middleton, will be completely bewildered by why Meghan is to do this, because there is no excuse for over-indulgence or over and that is what it is, seems to me,” claimed Burrell. “Although William mingles with the A-list celebrities, he will not take them home with him, they are not his friends. They are people with whom he works. The celebrity world in which Meghan had sunk seems to be where all her friends are, and that can only be a disaster.”

Burrell suggests that the lines between Markle’s former life as a Hollywood star and her new as a member of the British royal family “are becoming increasingly blurred.”

“There is a clear line between the two, and Meghan don’t know the difference,” he claimed. “The baby shower was clearly stipulated in the spotlight. Why would you invite a CBS anchor of your event if it was private?”

Burrell claimed that when it comes to public life, the royals are fiercely protecting of their privacy, and put duty first, before fame. While she is seen and photographed by the public at events, or when the support of the causes, the royals prefer to keep their life behind the palace doors. And while Markle is an American and a newcomer, they have to learn the ways of royal life.

For William, who is second in line for the throne, Burrell said he focuses on the role that fate has in store for him.


“The two different families… drifting further and further from each other, and that can be a good thing, because Kate and William have to remain spotless,” said Burrell. “They have never put a foot wrong. Kate is an exemplary example of a queen in waiting and that is what she has in our eyes. They may not be involved in all of this. I am glad that they do not get to New York, because if they were it would be reflected on her. And again, why was there no family in the baby shower? Why wasn’t her mother there? It all seems very strange to me.”

“Prince William tries to keep his family out of the spotlight, so the fact Meghan’s baby shower was so vain, it will be frustrating for me, and it caused a rift in the family,” added Burrell. “…. I think there are more surprises to come, where Meghan is involved and she will buck against royal tradition. With the baby coming, she has the ideal platform to do this. She is going to do it Meghan the road and not the royal way.”
