The Duke of Cambridge is alleged to have purposefully avoided meeting his brother on his April visit to Windsor.
According to a source, Prince William does not want Prince Harry to attend the Platinum Jubilee celebrations because he does not want his younger brother on British soil again.
An insider told The Daily Beast that the Duke of Cambridge was disappointed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s visit in April. Prior to their departure to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games, the pair stopped by to greet Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Camilla.
The source said, “Harry’s presence on British soil is not welcomed by his brother. The last time Harry came to the U.K., William managed to be in the Alps.”
Some speculated that the visit was untimely because Prince William and Kate Middleton were on vacation with their children skiing. However, the insider claimed that “these things don’t happen by accident,” and that the 39-year-old had refused to visit his younger brother because he “is sick of the sight and sound of his kid brother.”
The Duke of Cambridge is alleged to prefer Prince Harry not attend the Platinum Jubilee celebrations because “he doesn’t want him there.”
He’d be ” quite content” if his brother chose to play polo in Santa Barbara, California, so he wouldn’t have to be put in the difficult position of “standing next to his brother pretending to be friends.”
The duke has committed to playing polo throughout the summer, according to Omid Scobie, co-author of “Finding Freedom.” The tournament runs from June 3 to 19, which coincides with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which
run from June 2 to 5. However, these are only tournament dates, not the dates of the Duke of Sussex’s match.
According to CNN, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may still fly to the United Kingdom for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, although they have yet to confirm their appearance.
The duke had also expressed concerns over his family’s safety in the country during his interview with the “Today” show in April. They will have complete security for family functions, including their expected appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony, according to royal experts.
