Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent split from Prince William and Kate Middleton was a mistake, according to a royal expert.

While speaking with The Sun, Phil Dampier said that he thinks that it is wrong for the key members of the Royal Foundation to not stick together. After all, planning things and executing their projects would’ve been much easier if they are all under the same roof and if they are working together.

“You don’t want one of them to be launching an initiative on the same day as something else and taking away each other’s thunder. Whether they split up as they think it’ll work better or because of any tension, only they know,” he said.

However, royal expert Katie Nicholl said that there wouldn’t be any problem with the royal couples split because the palace makes it a point to prevent their diaries or schedules from clashing with each other. This way, there wouldn’t be any competition between the royals.

“With two very busy working royal couples, inevitably they will be away doing tours and engagements and official duties that will at times clash in the diary. I think that’s just the way it’s going to be… The whole point of splitting the household and splitting the foundations is so they can each pursue their own trajectories,” she said.

Months ago, Prince Harry and Markle’s split from Prince William and Middleton was confirmed. But rumors swirled that their decision had to do with an alleged ongoing feud.

Markle and Middleton have been pitted against each other ever since the Duchess of Sussex tied the knot with Prince Harry. But royal expert Carolyn Durand said that the two female royals have already patched things up.

In fact, the royal expert claimed that Markle and Middleton text each other regularly. She also said that they have bonded even more after Markle gave birth to her son, Archie on May 6.
