Prince William ‘forfeited’ a brother and key ally as future king due to Megxit – expert | Royal | News (Reports)


Royal commentator Rebecca English cast a new light on the impact Megxit may have had on Prince William. The expert claimed the Duke of Cambridge was the person who was most affected within the Royal Family by Meghan Markle and Harry’s decision to leave their royal roles.

She wrote: “It is William, however, who has felt Harry’s decision to leave the family most keenly.”

In the eyes of the Duke of Cambridge, the expert said, the Duke of Sussex did not just break away from his role of working member of the Royal Family.

Ms English wrote in the Daily Mail: “He has forfeited not just a beloved brother, but someone he expected would stand shoulder to shoulder with him and share the burden of responsibility when he becomes king.

“William was also deeply hurt by suggestions from the Sussex camp that he, and particularly his wife, had cold-shouldered Meghan.”

Asked by Mr Bradby to comment on the rumours of a fallout, the Duke of Sussex said “inevitably stuff happens” as a result of “this family being under the pressure that it’s under.”

He added: “We are brothers. We will always be brothers.

“We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me.”


Prince William, the firstborn of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, is to become King after his father.

The Duke and his wife Kate have reportedly been included in what has been dubbed ‘New Firm’.

According to a source, the members of this New Firm are to work together on projects close to their hearts and take part more often to joint engagement.

The source told the Daily Mirror: “The family are united in exploring the possibilities in working with each other to highlight the causes dear to their hearts, helping each other and the country at the same time.

“They are working on opportunities for next year and beyond already.

“As soon as they are able it will be all hands on deck to make up for lost time.

“The Queen has often said they ‘need to be seen to be believed’ – this is coming from the very top.”

The seven members of this New Firm reportedly are those who joined the Queen at Windsor Castle in early December, at the end of Kate and William’s Royal Train Tour.

Princess Anne, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Cambridges and the Wessexes are all believed to be part of this new project.

Prince Harry and Meghan, who stepped down as senior royals at the end of March last year, are not part of this New Firm.

The couple now live in California with their son Archie, and have undertaken a new path through their foundation, Archewell, and work as TV and podcast producers.

The couple announced last year they had struck deals with two streaming platforms – Netflix and Spotify – with which they are set to work for years to come.
