Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton «they don’t want to get involved in Harry and Meghan Markle’s soap opera“. He told this to Page Six a source very close to the royal family.
The Dukes of Cambridge, the insider says, they fear the uncomfortable attention that is about to hit the family real because of the«Explosive» interview granted by the Sussexes to Oprah Winfrey. The special it promises to to shake the Crown (the preview released by CBS does not bode well for the Windsors) will air on Sunday in prime time. “William and Catherine, supremely discreet people, don’t want to get involved in this nonsense festival. I’m sure William is desperately sad for all this », said a Page Six the real source.
William isn’t just sad. IS worried. The upcoming ninety-minute special evokes in him the memory of the infamous interview granted by his mother Diana, in 1995, to Martin Bashir of the BBC. A chat with which the princess – talking about her wedding “a little too crowded” (Camilla Parker Bowles case) with Charles of England – seriously embarrassed the monarchy. But William’s thoughts go above all to a much more recent precedent. In 2019, interviewed by Tom Bradby for ITV News, Harry spoke candidly about the tensions with the elder brother: “We are on very different paths at the moment, but I will always be there for him and I know that he will always be there for me ». William did not say a word at the time. And his, according to the royal source, was “the smartest move».
The Cambridge, continues the insider, “know how to listen to the advice of those close to them.” While “Harry and Meghan don’t listen to anyone”. And they have created a situation that William and Kate just don’t like: “The dukes don’t want anything to do with this soap opera. For them, honestly, it’s like watching Elizabeth Hurley in the TV series The Royals».
Their life, the real one, is surrounded by “goodness”. They have the Middletons by their side, Carole and Mike, Pippa and her husband, James Middleton and girlfriend Alizee. “I’m a united and happy family». William and Harry, on the other hand, would barely communicate by now. And “only via What’s App messages”.
