This year, Prince William and Prince Harry have been plagued by rumours of a royal 'feud'. Harry and Meghan Markle officially split from William and Kate Middleton's royal household, prompting speculation that there has been a fallout between the brothers. The 'Fab Four' as they were known appear to have gone their separate ways, and even decided to break away from their joint charity. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also created their own Instagram account, and moved into Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
Some people have argued that the reason they are parting is simply due to succession, but a royal expert claimed that William and Harry didn’t see each other for six months after the royal wedding, despite at the time, living in the same Kensington Palace area.
But the princes stood side by side earlier this week at a charity polo match. All eyes were on Meghan Markle and baby Archie turning up to support Harry, but he appeared to be making a statement when standing next to his brother on the podium after the match.
William beat Harry with a narrow 7-6 win, and Harry took the loss graciously. He smiled at William, put his arm around him and kept it placed on his back as they posed for photos.
Could this be his way of ending the 'feud' rumours?
The families appeared to be enjoying the day out, quashing the speculation that there is also tension between the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge.
So there you have it.
