Royal Family news – Prince Harry must DIVORCE Meghan Markle if he ever wants to heal rift with William, expert claims

PRINCES Harry and William will NEVER heal their rift all the time Meghan Markle is in the frame, a royal expert has claimed.

The feuding brothers are said to have been "at each others throats" behind the scenes at Prince Philip's funeral, having barely spoke to one another since Harry and Meghan fled to the US to live a supposedly "private" life.

Now royal expert Hugo Vickers has said their is no chance of the brothers ending the feud while Meghan is around because her husband is simply too "under the thumb" to realise the damage he's done to his brother.

'I don't know what they can do under the present circumstances… Harry has got to wake up to what's going on. It's a very unpleasant situation," he told The Express.

'Harry is so under the thumb of Meghan it is not really possible until he emerges from that," he added, hinting that ending his relationship with the Duchess might be the only way to fix relations with his brother.

    According to Robert Lacey’s ‘Battle of Brothers’ friends of the feuding royals are seeking to reconcile the pair.

    Lacey said friends “frequently discuss how to heal the breach — though with an increasing sense of despair”.

    But he also points out that supporters of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex acknowledge how Meghan rubs William up the wrong way.

    “Sussex supporters have noted the bizarre combination of self-promotion and self-pity that characterises Meghan, and can see why it has infuriated William,” he writes in the Daily Mail.

    “Meghan can be a 500 per cent nightmare,’ some close friends of Harry are among the first to admit. ‘The never-ending PR. She’s just so . . . American!”

    PRINCE WILLIAM ‘UNLIKELY TO ADMIT ANY WRONGDOING’ TO PRINCE HARRY

    The brothers will reunite on Thursday when they unveil the memorial statue of their late mother togethe, on what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday.

    While Harry’s trip back to the UK was originally touted as an opportunity for the Duke to reconcile with William, it now seems unlikely that peace talks will make any significant headway, royal commentator Camilla Tominey has said.

    However, the brothers are expected to make a temporary truce in their reported row to ensure their mother’s legacy is the primary focus of the day.

    Speaking about the brothers’ upcoming reunion in The Telegraph’s Royal Insight video series, Tominey said: “I think there’s an expectation that publicly, the brothers will appear to be on the same side.

    “But I think we’re overstating it if we think that one event can somehow bring them together.”

    PRINCE CHARLES UNVEILS PLANS FOR OUTDOOR CLASSROOM

    Prince Charles has unveiled plans to build an outdoor classroom for schoolchildren in the grounds of his Scottish stately home.

    The facility is to be erected in woodland at Dumfries House near Cumnock in Ayrshire to encourage pupils to learn about the “natural world”.

    The timber framed structure will hold science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) workshops on the 2,000 acre estate.

    Plans have been submitted to East Ayrshire Council who are due to make a decision next month.

    A design statement submitted by The Prince’s Foundation said: “When it comes to the specific themes of the STEM programme, there will be some potential advantages to the build and design of the outdoor classroom and education area that could be enhanced.

    “Making use of the natural environment around the classroom and integrating it would be a great way to continue to invite exploration of the natural world by pupils taking part in the environmental science workshops.”

    QUEEN'S LETTER FINALLY ENDED CHARLES AND DIANA’S MARRIAGE

    Not long after Diana sat down with Martin Bashir she was given a letter hand written by the queen according to the Mirror.

    The Queen wrote in the letter: “I have consulted with the Archbishop of Canterbury and with the prime minister and, of course, with Charles, and we have decided that the best course for you is divorce.”

    It reportedly left Diana furious as she felt she was being forced to agree to a divorce – despite not wanting one.

    It is thought she told her butler Paul Burrell: “That’s rich! They get to decide whether I divorce!”

    Days after receiving the letter Buckingham Palace formally announced the divorce saying “after considering the present situation the Queen… gave them their view, supported by the Duke of Edinburgh, that an early divorce is desirable”.

    Simone Simmons, a pal and confidante of the late princess, said Diana thought the chat show host was “only after sensationalism” and showed a “lack of respect” to her interview subjects.

    The fierce revelation comes just months after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry let loose on the Royal Family in their explosive chat with Oprah in March.

    Harry claimed his dad and brother were “trapped” in the Royal Firm, while Meghan revealed she had had suicidal thoughts during her time as a working royal.

    The bombshell interview was a result of Meghan and Harry’s friendship with Oprah – who Diana, it seems, did not feel as comfortable to be around.
