Prince Harry and Meghan Markle must be the ones to say sorry to William and Kate who would have ‘brutally rebutted’ any request to meet at Windsor this week because they ‘no longer trust them’, royal experts told MailOnline today.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex continue their engagements in Britain this afternoon by attending the WellChild Awards in London before heading back the US, perhaps as early as tonight.
But despite staying at Frogmore Cottage – a stone’s throw from the Cambridges at their new Adeleide Cottage home – the Cambridges and Sussexes have not met amid claims Harry never told Prince William they were coming to the UK, with the Duke of Cambridge reportedly finding out from the media.
And Omid Scobie, the couple’s biographer and considered their mouthpiece in the UK, claims Meghan and Harry will not reach out until that Cambridges to take ‘accountability for crossing a line’.
But royal experts say that the reality is that William ‘no longer trusts his brother’ and the Cambridges ‘have good reason to dislike him and Meghan’ after their regular transatlantic ‘truth bombs’ – so would have refused to attend any summit.
Journalist and author Phil Dampier, who has penned a book about the Sussexes romance, said: ‘It’s terribly sad that it’s come to this but it’s really up to Harry and Meghan to put down their weapons and think about a peace deal.
‘William certainly no longer trusts his brother.If in his book Harry criticises Kate for making Meghan cry in the run up to her wedding, or if he accuses Camilla of ruining his parents’ marriage, I fear there will be no way back for him and William and Charles will cut him off permanently.
‘The trouble is they’ve signed up for big money deals and can’t pull out yet without losing a fortune’.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said: ‘Why on earth should William reach out to a couple who rely on their royal status for their work and are currently undertaking a mini-royal tour of sorts, yet at every opportunity publicly attack the royal family.The Sussexes are unpredictable and any conversation might well be repeated, especially as they feel so bitter’.
And Tom Bower, author of the recent Megan Markle biography, claimed her ‘revenge’ on the Royal Family ‘has taken a new and nasty twist’ after the Sussexes failed to make peace with the Cambridges.
He said: ‘Both Sussexes know that any attempt to meet their neighbours would be brutally rebutted.Not only because Harry has been crudely offensive about William, Kate and his father on American TV, as has Meghan in her outrageous smears about Kate in her Oprah Winfrey interview.
‘But because their current visit to Britain shows that the Sussexes are obsessed by self-promotion at the expense of the royal family.Harry’s fate now depends on successfully promoting his poisonous auto-biography. High sales success depend on smearing his family.
He added: ‘Harry prefers to protect himself from a confrontation which inevitably would end in an argument and accusations of betrayal’.
