One of the most riveting royal conflicts to befall the British monarchy in years is showing no signs of subsidence. The massive fissure caused by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to seek “financial independence” by keeping Buckingham in the line of fire has now had widespread ramifications. At a time when the estranged royal couple is looking to bolster their presence and relevance in the US, their UK counterparts are light years away from being pleased.

In the latest of snubs to his youngest son, King Charles III declined to extend him an invitation for his incumbent birthday. Turns out, the reason has significant depth to it.

Two weeks into 2023, Prince Harry dropped bombshell claims on the royal family of Britain in his memoir, Spare. The allegations included explosive charges of physical altercations on Prince William. Moreover, he had also said his brother was “abrasive” to his wife, Meghan Markle. Thus, these barbed attacks may have played a factor in King Charles III’s birthday snub for the Sussexes. Now, Entertainment Tonight reported via its sources that “there is no reconciliation expected anytime soon.”

Leaving none to spare, Prince Harry had also implied a lack of love from his father. The added accusations have now created an environment of distrust within the royal quarters and, hence, no invitation. A further disdain may have come with the Duke of Sussex’s unannounced visit to Queen Elizabeth’s memorial, earlier this year, hours before a planned visit by the Prince and Princess of Wales in another side of the country. Thus, a rebelling factor at play, the source, added that “There’s a great deal of hurt on both sides”.

The development has taken shape when Prince William is resentful of his brother’s dealings with Netflix. The UK royal stands miffed at the rampant ‘exploitation’ by the streaming giant of their family in the form of The Crown and the Sussexes. Regardless, the estranged duo is still moving ahead with their 5-year $100 million deal, while also exploring other options such as an appearance on The Kardashians.
