Prince Harry and Kate Middleton were very close before he dated and married Meghan Markle and he wanted to keep it that way.

In the recent months, there were rumors that Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s two sons were feuding. This affected Middleton’s relationship with her brother-in-law.

On Easter Sunday, a body language expert said that Prince Harry was “anxious” and desperate to avoid Prince William. However, he was photographed chatting and laughing with the Duchess of Cambridge.

An insider said that Prince Harry doesn’t want to destroy what he has with Middleton despite his issues with his big brother.

“He'll hate that their relationship has suffered and this public apology could be the first step towards ending this royal drama for good,” the royal insider told Women’s Day.

The source was referring to Prince Harry and Middleton’s reunion at Anzac Day Service. The Duke of Sussex was reportedly not scheduled to attend the event. However, he decided to accompany Middleton at the last minute because he felt that it was a perfect opportunity for them to spend some time together as Prince William was in New Zealand.

“They've always had a great connection and Harry would do anything to safeguard that. This was his way of apologising for everything that's happened and showing his sister-in-law he's still standing by her.”

Royal fans were delighted to see Prince William’s wife and brother together. One netizen even said that Prince Harry and Middleton are a “beautiful duo.” The three royals, Prince William, Middleton and Prince Harry, worked closely together in the past earning them the moniker “the royal trio.”

Meanwhile, Omid Scobie said that Markle somehow replaced Middleton’s role in Prince Harry’s life. Prior to the Duchess of Sussex, it was Middleton who provided Prince Harry the supportive female presence. In addition, the royal expert recalled how Prince Harry and Middleton would be seen “giggling together.”
