The birthday love comes amid reports of conflict in the royal family, specifically between Harry and William, which arose after Harry and Meghan’s departure from higher royal duties and their interview to tell everything with Oprah Winfrey.
Although the brothers they have met in person since the beginning of the reported dispute, Omid Scobie, a royal reporter and co-author of Find freedom, a book about Harry and Meghan, told Nischelle Turner from ET that their relationship “is still very far apart.”
“These are still two brothers who are not in regular communication, or in a lot of communication at all, and I think they remain on these very different paths,” said the author. “They are very different men. And I think William has certainly become someone who is really living his life for the crown, for the institution. Harry has really gone completely in the opposite direction. “
“They will never agree,” he added, “and until both parties recognize that, they will never move forward.”
