Prince William and Prince Harry may have grown up together, but as time progressed the brothers have been forced to go in different directions. While Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle are expected to take on various royal duties, William and Kate Middleton will transition to more senior responsibilities.

Due to their different paths, Meghan and Harry split from the Royal Foundation, which will be renamed the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will instead start their own charity, which has yet to be named.

A Buckingham Palace source told, Meghan and Harry are “very excited” about the charity split. “This is their chance to stamp their own personality on their charitable work,” the insider explained.

“Not only will their new foundation stand the test of time, but it will allow them to do some very ambitious things. Their charity will provide them with an opportunity to create something that will be their defining work—and it’s entirely theirs.”

The palace aide claimed the split from Kate and Prince William would allow Meghan and Prince Harry to make their own decisions. “This allows the Sussexes to do things exactly how they want,” the insider explained.

“Their operating style is very different to the Cambridges and so having their own space to think as big as they like, working on a global scale, is perfect for them,” the source added.

Although there have been rumors suggesting the couples are embroiled in a bitter feud, Kensington Palace insisted the split was necessary for the monarchy.

“These changes are designed to best complement the work and responsibilities of Their Royal Highnesses as they prepare for their future roles, and to better align their charitable activity with their new households,” the palace said in a statement.

Although Meghan is still on maternity leave, she and Prince Harry are expected to launch their foundation by the end of the year.
