Harry will not reconcile with William despite Diana statue unveiled as he “cannot afford to upset Meghan”, biographer claims
THE DUKE of Sussex will not be reconciled with Prince William as he “cannot afford to upset Meghan”, according to a royal biographer.
Despite the brother’s united front when the statue was unveiled in honor of their late mother, Princess Diana, Harry made a brutal exit after the ceremony.
The two seemed in sync as they pulled back the green curtain draped over the touching artwork, but he left only 20 minutes later after raising a glass of champagne to Di.
He returned to the United States to be with wife Meghan Markle, Archie and newborn daughter Lilibet – which royal commentator Angela Levin suggested is because “he does as he’s told” .
But the author isn’t holding her breath for a reconciliation, as she told the Andrew Pierce Show, “I think whatever Harry decides, Meghan will change him.”
“It will make it a negative thing, and I don’t think there will be any long term progress there.
“I think there will be some nasty comments about it, maybe William pulled the green fabric harder than Harry,” Ms Levin joked.
“Seriously, that’s a very big thing, what Harry did, said about William, the Royal Family, his father and the Queen.”
Prince Harry and Wills have not seen each other since Prince Philip’s funeral in April and have been embroiled in a bitter feud over Harry’s explosive comments about the Royal in interviews with the chat show host Oprah.
“You can’t just erase that. You can put a bandage on it for half an hour, but you can’t really get rid of it unless there’s a huge amount of conversation going on over a long period of time.”
“And Harry does as he’s told,” Ms. Levin continued.
“If Meghan tells him how to make a statement, he will, and that’s it.
“He can’t afford to upset Meghan now because he would feel such failure and misery and she would give him why, really. I think there is no way that would happen.”
Diana’s sons were seen laughing and joking Thursday afternoon surrounded by their late mother’s family in the Sunken Garden for the unveiling.
The couple even mirrored each other’s body language as they walked around, before being greeted by their former private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, who is Prince George’s godfather.
Sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, the mastermind behind the bronze memorial, said that Diana “was an icon who touched the lives of people around the world, so it has been a privilege to work alongside Prince William and Prince Harry “.
Harry and William chose some of Diana’s favorite flowers to plant near the statue, including 100 forget-me-nots, 200 roses, 300 tulips and 500 lavender plants.
Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the allegations.
