Harry and William’s truce ‘overdue’ as tensions threatened to ‘overshadow’ Queen’s death | royal | New

Royal commentator Jonathan Sacerdoti was speaking after the brothers united for a walk, with their wives Catherine, Princess of Wales and Meghan Markle. The precise circumstances that led to their teaming up remain unclear – although insiders claim the newly minted Prince of Wales texted Harry to suggest the idea.

Mr Sacerdoti, who frequently appears on Sky News to discuss royal affairs, as well as contributing to The Spectator, told Express.co.uk: “I don’t think we know the whole story yet of how it happened.

“But I think everyone was happy to see it happen.

“I think it was overdue and I think there was great fear, especially probably within the Royal Family themselves, that the ongoing tension between the Sussexes and particularly the Cambridges could somehow deflect attention or eclipse the historic moment of the Queen’s passing. ”

Mr Sacerdoti added: “Whatever the cause, this walk together has been much appreciated by the public, and I dare say if they have time to think of such things, by King Charles himself .”

Speaking of the new monarch, he speculated: “I don’t know if King Charles would have laid down the law and told them this had to happen, and there had to be a show of unity.

“Or if, as some rumors have it, Prince William heard that Prince Harry and Megan had informed an American news network that they were planning to go for a walk, and therefore prompted one where the four of them would go and invite Harry and Meghan. , I don’t know if that’s correct.

They added: “It happened very quickly – remarkable considering they didn’t see each other in Scotland.”

Another outright dismissed the suggestion that William acted after learning that Harry and Meghan were planning to wave to the crowd with a film crew.

Tensions between Harry and William have been brewing since the Sussexes stepped down as frontline Royals and moved to California in 2020.

The situation deteriorated when Meghan and Harry told talk show host Oprah Winfrey that an unnamed Royal had speculated about their unborn son Archie’s complexion.

William then took the extraordinary step of telling a reporter, “We really aren’t a racist family.”

The so-called Fab Four have not been pictured together since the 2020 Commonwealth Day church service.

King Charles today makes Britain’s parliament ‘the living, breathing instrument of our democracy’ and vowed to follow the example of his late mother Queen Elizabeth in maintaining its independence in an address to both houses.

Charles arrived at Westminster Hall in London to a trumpet fanfare with his wife Camilla, Queen Consort, for the address – part of a series of pageant-filled ceremonies following the Queen’s death on Thursday at her holiday home in Balmoral, Scotland, after 70 years on the throne.

Then he set off for Edinburgh to join his siblings for a solemn procession when Queen Elizabeth’s coffin is taken to the city’s historic cathedral.
