Prince William & Prince Harry: Did They Just Cut Ties For Good?!

by at .

For months now, reports of a feud between Prince William and Prince Harry have been dominating British tabloid headlines.

Alleged causes of the spat vary from one outlet to the next, but the consensus seems to be that the formerly close brothers had a falling out sometime in the past two years.

A Fab Four

It's widely believed that Will was among the many members of the royal family who cautioned Harry against marrying Meghan Markle.

Some say Harry took his brother's words of warning in stride at first but became irate upon learning that William had been cheating on Kate Middleton while she was pregnant with his third child.

(We imagine it's tough to stomach relationship advice from a guy who's shagging his wife's best friend.)

Whatever the case, it's quite evident that Will and Harry are no longer as close as they used to be -- and they don't seem to care who knows it.

Over the course of the past year, the brothers have taken several steps to distance themselves from one another.

2 Princes

First, Harry and Meghan moved out of Kensington Palace and into Frogmore Cottage.

Shortly thereafter, the couple the Sussexes further cut ties with the Cambridge by breaking up their royal court and Kensington and dividing up their offices.

Now, in yet another sign that all is not well in the House of Windsor, the two couples have decided to bring an end to their joint charitable organization, the Royal Foundation.

The news was revealed Thursday morning by Emily Andrews, royal correspondent for The Sun:

Kate Middleton and 2 Princes

"The ‘Fab Four’ are no more," Andrews tweeted.

"The Sussexes & the Cambridges are set to split their last remaining bond: the Royal Foundation.

"Each couple will go their own way in their charitable work."

Earlier, the two couples participated in a forum in order to discuss their future philanthropic endeavors.

Sadly, it now seems those initiatives will never come to pass:

"That first forum last Feb was supposed to be 1st of many...sadly not," Andrews added.

This may not seem to be as obvious a sign of discord as Harry and Meghan moving out or establishing their own office.

But as Andrews points out, it's significant for one major reason:

Arm in Arm in Arm in Arm

The Foundation was the last tie joining the Cambridges with the Sussexes.

Without it, they could easily go months without crossing paths (though royal engagements that are effectively mandatory would eventually bring them into contact).

And it seems that's quite alright with all of the principal parties.

Insiders claim that when Meghan returns from maternity leave, she plans to pursue who own humanitarian agenda, one that will bring her to America, Africa, and other places close to her heart.

We're sure Harry will be by her side throughout -- and it seems the couple is unconcerned with what the rest of his family thinks of their plans.
