Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are divided.

Prince Harry is very close to his brother and sister-in-law. The Duke of Sussex was previously often spotted with Prince William and Middleton that royal fans dubbed them “the royal trio.”

Many were hoping that the royal trio would become the fab four when Prince Harry started dating Markle. Unfortunately, they did not unite, instead the four royals divided.

Earlier this year, Prince Harry and Markle decided to leave Kensington Palace. The couple moved to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor and opted to have a separate charity.

According to Alyssa Bailey of Elle, their division is partly because of their different roles in the monarchy and partly because Prince Harry and Markle felt isolated.

“Everyone was doing their duties, doing what they needed to do on behalf of the family – and that was that,” a source said.

“But there is a divide between the four of them. It’s hard for people to digest, because everyone wants them to be such a unit.”

Prince William and Middleton are the future king and queen. On the other hand, Prince Harry and Markle are said to be struggling with “ongoing feelings of isolation from the rest of the family” as they deal with the constant scrutiny from the press.

“They’re going to have to try to figure out how to be civil, but they are on different paths now. It’s just the reality of the situation.”

The palace just announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be spending their Christmas with Markle’s mom Doria Ragland. This is the second time Prince Harry and Markle snubbed the Queen’s invitation. According to royal expert Ingrid Seward, the Queen was hurt but she was too gracious to let her true feelings about the matter be known.

Meanwhile, an insider told Us Weekly that Prince Harry and Prince Willam’s rift was the main reason why the couple decided to spend the upcoming holidays away from the royal family. Also, it will be Archie’s first Christmas and they want it to be super special by spending it with Markle’s mother.
