Brothers in arms?
When it comes to Prince Harry and Prince William these days, it's more like... two brothers who are up in arms.
With each other. Over the existence of Meghan Markle.
Indeed, as you have very likely heard by now, the Duchess of Sussex is allegedly stirring up trouble wherever she goes these days, possibly because she's a spoiled diva but maybe because she's simply American.
Markle is reportedly engaged in a feud with Kate Middleton and has even caused Queen Elizabeth to furrow her all-important brow over some of Meghan's fashion decisions of late.
Now, however, comes a report that claims Markle is also responsible for a riff between Harry and William.
And it's all based on how the latter feels about the former's relatively new wif.e
A source tells Entertainment Tonight that "tension does still exist" between the siblings after the Duke of Cambridge voiced his "concerns" about Markle way back she first started dating his sibling.
It's unclear exactly why William objected to Markle at that time, although we did hear at some point that he never comprehended the popularity of her USA Network drama Suits.
According to this ET insder, Harry and William have "not mended completely" after their initial disagreement over Markle as Harry's partner.
"Other members of the royal family also expressed their unease about their relationship," adds the source. "But Harry was steadfast and absolutely besotted with Meghan."
Besotted. We love British parlance, don't you?
Harry and Meghan, of course, are expecting their first child this spring.
But that news has been overshadowed over the past month or so with talk that they no longer get along with Middleton and William.
The parents-to-be will soon be moving out of Kensington Palace and taking up residence at Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle, presumably because they don't want to reside near their rivals any longer.
"The move to Windsor will allow them to raise their children away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi," another ET source explains, adding that William did also play a role in this decision;
"Naturally, Harry doesn't want to live in his brother's shadow for the rest of his life.
"Their lives are also moving in different directions as William prepares to be king one day."
As various staffers walk out on Markle, and chatter grows stronger by the day that she really is difficult to work for, many close to the Monarch are wondering why Harry doesn't do a better job of keeping his wife in line.
This is a sexist and antiquated argument, of course.
And it's also a fruitless one, writes Us Weekly.
"It has put pressure on her relationship with Harry. He’s very frustrated with how little can be done,” alleges this tabloid, continuing:
“Keeping her away from the negativity and harm has been hard for him. It’s been his purpose in their relationship to keep her away from the negativity."
Just a couple months ago, no one would have expected a magazine cover such as the one above to be printed.
Markle was widely embraced by the public and accepted by Harry's loved ones.
However, a lot can change in a short period of time and Kensington Palace doesn't seem certain how to handle the ongoing chaos among its young and attractive members.
