Prince William and Prince Harry’s Feud Was “Very Real, Very Ugly, and Incredibly Intense”

Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship is finally back on track after their *breathes exhausted sigh* royal feud, but a source tells Us Weekly their drama was way more intense than anyone realized.

“William and Harry’s fallout was very real, very ugly, and incredibly intense,” the source said. “They’d reached an impasse, there was so much mud under the bridge and a lot of people felt their feud was beyond repair.”

Apparently, William and Harry are now “vowing not to let things get this out of hand in the future and have learned a lot from this difficult experience”—and there’s been “a lot of rejoicing” in the royal family now that they’ve reconciled.

While Harry and William haven’t reunited due to COVID-19 restrictions, they are “looking forward to spending time together in person the moment it’s safe to travel.” The brothers’ reunion will likely take place in England, but the source notes “at some point in 2021, the Cambridges will travel to Santa Barbara and see the Sussexes on their new home turf.”

According to an Us Weekly source, “Harry doesn’t have any regrets about leaving the royal family whatsoever and is really happy in Montecito…he and Meghan are enjoying their new life in California—being a normal family and having the freedom to make their own decisions without anyone watching over them.” The source also added that Harry has “grown in confidence since the move. Harry isn’t looking back, although he does miss his friends at home.”

While Harry seems to feel chill, it doesn’t mean the past year hasn’t seen him and Meghan facing their fair share of challenges. “2020 was a huge game-changer for Harry and Meghan and it came with its ups and downs—the stress of announcing their departure from the royal family, moving three times, dealing with the pandemic, making huge business decisions, setting up Archewell, coming to terms with the miscarriage,” a separate Us Weekly explained. “It’s brought them closer together and made them a stronger couple.”
