Queen Elizabeth II’s decision to step back from her royal duties may highlight Prince William and Prince Harry’s ongoing feud.

During a recent interview, 9News Australia presenter Belinda Russell said that the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex, together with their wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, will have a very busy autumn ahead.

“We’ve got the tale of two tours – Harry and Meghan heading to South Africa and William and Kate heading to Pakistan,” she said.

Royal expert Juliet Ridden added that the upcoming royal tours prove how different the siblings really are from each other. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge won’t be bringing their three children with them to Pakistan in what is being considered a Brexit love-in. This suggests that the future King and future Queen Consort are working in a diplomatic capacity.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, on the other hand, have decided to bring their son to South Africa with them. The trip will make Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor the youngest member of the royal family to ever join a royal tour.

But Markle, who is still on her maternity leave at the moment, won’t be joining Prince Harry when he visits Angola, Malawi, and Botswana.

In the past, the Queen is the one who travels to different countries during royal tours. But since she’s now 93 years old, it has become difficult for her to go to different parts of the world.

Her Majesty has passed on this task to the younger members of the royal family. And since the tour of South Africa and Pakistan will take place around the same time, there’s a huge possibility that comparisons will be drawn.

Additionally, there have also been claims that Prince William and Prince Harry are feuding. Their competing overseas tours could only pose more conflict between the royal siblings, their wives, and their respective families.
