The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in their grace-and-favor UK home on the grounds of Windsor Castle before their next engagement on their pseudo-royal tour of Europe in London.
Harry and William have seen each other twice in the past 12 months – but instead of talking through their rift, the siblings have stuck to ‘polite hellos’ and ‘little else’, according to Omid Scobie.
One insider told him: ‘There’s a laughable effort to suggest the [Sussexes] have been shunned. The true story is, that they never reached out to the Cambridges’.
Mr. Scobie claims that Harry believes that William is guilty of ‘turning his back when support was needed’ – while William is still waiting for his young brother to say sorry for Megxit and the transatlantic ‘truth bombs’ he and Meghan have dropped in various US TV and magazine interviews.
A family friend told him: ‘People are desperate for steps to be made but behind the scenes, there hasn’t been moved.
‘What [Harry] is waiting for is accountability… Many lines were crossed by William. He was at the center of a number of painful moments, be it the actions of his own staff or turning his back when support was needed. It was a dark time and one that, so far, William has been unprepared to unpack.’
The same friend says the stalemate is cemented because Prince William is ‘still waiting’ for an apology for Harry’s decision to discuss private Royal Family matters in public, adding in his Yahoo column: ‘When you look at the bare facts, it becomes obvious why it is pretty much the same state of affairs as years ago.’
It was claimed this week that William won’t speak to Harry until his memoirs are released, fearing their conversation would appear on its pages.
