    Prince William and Prince Harry have always been close as far as siblings go, breaking royal protocol to be each other’s best man. And since the two brothers have married, with growing families of their own, they have proved to have formed a popular group.

    In fact, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have even been given an affectionate nickname – the Fab Four.

    Yes, we all love the Fab Four, and whether they’re laughing on Buckingham Palace balcony or walking to church on Christmas Day together, they never fail to make news for all the right reasons.

    This week however it was bad news that prompted the Fab Four to come up in conversation, as it emerged that their work as a group of four might be coming to an end.


    Why? Well, now with different official titles and jobs, Prince Harry and Prince William have separate responsibilities and might have to retire their ‘double act’ in order to progress separately.

    In fact, the brothers are reportedly planning on splitting Kensington Palace.


    ‘The brothers have leant on each other and looked after each other since their mother died,’ a royal source told the Sunday Times. ‘But now they have their own families, they no longer rely on each other as before.’

    It’s sad that the Fab Four’s days as an official group might be numbered, but we’re sure they will continue to be the Fab Four in private.
