Prince William and Meghan Markle’s relationship has, reportedly, been estranged for years. Even before Markle wed Prince Harry, Prince William already had some concerns about their relationship. In fact, the Duke of Cambridge tried to talk Prince Harry out of marrying Markle after less than two years of dating each other. But this did not sit well with Prince Harry.
Reports also revealed that Prince William publicly snubbed Markle during the royal family’s church outing on Christmas Day 2018. Videos show Markle trying to strike up a conversation with her brother-in-law, but Prince William ignored him.
Prince William and Markle’s relationship has not recovered since the latter quit The Firm. And there are claims that there’s even more tension between the two.
Prince William Doesn’t Trust Meghan Markle
Woman’s Day, in its Nov. 29 issue, claimed that Prince William is willing to testify against Markle in court after she lied about her involvement with the book, Finding Freedom.
After Prince William’s right-hand man, Jason Knauf exposed Prince Harry and Markle, the latter was forced to apologize to the court. Markle also said that she forgot about such an important detail to her case.
Following her admission, several royal experts started doubting Markle’s credibility. And they are also convinced that a new hearing with a different judge could take place in the coming months.
If this happens, Knauf may reportedly be asked to testify and so will Prince William.
“William has never trusted Meghan. She’s been twisting narratives from day dot. If this ends up going to trial, Jason will be called as a witness, which means William might be as well, given they work so closely together. It would certainly be unprecedented for him to take the stand, but I imagine he’s considering it,” an unnamed source said.
Prince William’s testimony will reportedly have a huge bearing on Markle’s case since the royal is second in line to the throne and the future king of Britain.
“Meghan must be scrambling at the mere idea of this. She’s had a lot to say about the Cambridges behind their backs, but coming face to face with William in a courtroom is a whole different story,” the unnamed source concluded.
Even though Prince William and Markle’s relationship has not completely recovered, it’s unlikely for Kate Middleton’s husband to testify against his sister-in-law.
After all, the royals do not involve themselves in these kinds of issues. And regardless of what’s going on between the Cambridges and the Sussexes behind closed doors, they’re still a family at the end of the day.
Prince William, Prince Harry Featured In New Documentary
Sources previously revealed that Prince William and Markle never had a problem with each other. It just so happened that the two never became close. The real issue is, reportedly, between Prince William and Prince Harry.
The siblings’ feud will once again take center stage in the BBC documentary, The Princes and the Press.
According to Newsweek, the documentary will look at how the brothers deal with the media.
No one from the royal family has seen the documentary ahead of its release. But some sources are saying that this could be the final nail in the coffin for the British clan to officially cut ties with the network.
“There is upset about it. The households are all united in thinking this is not fair. No one at the Palace has seen it,” a source told Daily Mail.
