The Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly attempting to heal the ‘ongoing rift’ between Princes William and Harry.
Kate is said to have advised Harry to offer William ‘an olive branch’ to end the tension between the two.
For months rumours have circulated about the fractured relationship between the two brothers, when it was revealed last year that Harry and Meghan would be moving to the grounds of Windsor from their Kensington Palace cottage, so their child does not grow up ‘in a goldfish bowl.’
Behind the scenes reports soon suggested that it was due to a rift between the Cambridges and the Sussexes.
A body language expert has suggested that Harry was ‘desperate to avoid’ William at the Easter Church service attended by the Royal Family on Sunday. Speculation about the rift was fuelled when Harry walked ahead of William into the service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
The Mirror have suggested that Kate has attempted to 'repair a complete and utter breakdown of communication' between the Princes. They have also claimed that insider sources have said that the brothers had a ‘disastrous row that could not be defused’ over the different paths of life they are now on.
Harry and Meghan reportedly invited William and Kate to their Windsor home for tea on Easter Sunday, after the talk.
Body language expert Judi James told the Daily Mail: 'Watching them at the Easter service was almost like watching strangers. With Meghan about to give birth soon, Harry was by himself but there were no signs of him joining up with William and Kate on arrival or leaving the church. If anything Harry appeared to avoid his brother.'
Royal insiders have previously claimed that the Cambridges and the Sussexes are ‘very different people.’
Daily Mail's Rebecca English was previously informed by a source that: ‘While there are some tensions behind the scenes, Kate is pretty unflappable and nothing has become bad enough to make Harry and Meghan want to move out. People are genuinely pleased to see them so happy. The truth is that there simply isn't enough room at Kensington Palace for them and I know they have been looking at Windsor as a possibility since before the wedding.'
Harry looked relaxed yesterday as he joined Kate at a service to mark Anzac Day, the day of remembrance for all Australians and New Zealanders who have died in wars. According to the Mirror, a palace source claimed: ‘The Duchess (Kate) and Harry have developed a very close bond over the years.’
Meanwhile, William is on a whistle-stop tour in New Zealand to meet survivors of the Christchurch attack, and Meghan was at stayed at home due to the expectation of her baby any day.
