For months now, the rumors of a feud among Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, have been running wild. Fans and news media have been following their every move for quite some time, analyzing all that they do to determine if it is a result of tension between the two princes.
When Harry and Meghan Markle recently split their household from William and Kate Middleton, the rumors of a royal rift reached an all-time high. On Easter Sunday, usually a day of family celebration for the royals, it seemed as if the brothers were going out of their way to avoid each other and have no interaction whatsoever.
Now that Meghan and Harry have welcomed their first son, Archie Harrison, claims of a feud have pretty much died down. However, the question on everyone's mind is: Why did William and Harry have such a considerable disagreement? Was their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, actually behind the royal feud between her two grandsons

The rumors started back in the fall, and as it turns out, the original claims were not about William and Harry at all. Instead, she was told that their wives were at odds with each other, with many believing that Kate was having a hard time adjusting to Meghan's strong personality. Sources said that Meghan and Kate were very "different" people and that they really "did not get along" at all.
Before we knew it, Meghan and Harry announced that they were leaving Kensington Palace to live at a new home in the countryside of Windsor, further fueling the belief that Meghan and Kate were having problems. When the royal sisters-in-law were seen acting and cordial during an engagement at the Westminster Abbey, the rumors were put to rest. However, the focus was shifted to Princes William and Harry.
Princes William and Harry were always very close
Growing up close in age, the brothers always had an excellent relationship. They always got along wonderfully, supporting each other as they lived life in the royal spotlight. The two princes suddenly lost their mother, Princess Diana, at a very young age. It appeared as if William and Harry's relationship got even stronger, as they leaned each other during one of the most difficult and tragic times of their entire life
Prince William was concerned when Prince Harry was dating Meghan Markle
Fans could not have been happier when Harry and Meghan started their courtship and eventually married. It seemed to happen fairly quickly, especially in comparison to William and Kate's relationship. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been together for seven years before announcing their engagement, while Meghan and Harry have been dating for only two years before deciding to marry. Apparently, William was concerned that the relationship was moving so fast, and Harry 's feelings were extremely hurt as a result
Was the Queen Elizabeth behind the royal feud between Prince William and Prince Harry
The last thing that royal fans want it is a kind of tension between the two princes. The fact that they were arguing at one point raises the question as to whether the queen was actually behind it.
Apparently, her majesty issued and warned both her grandsons to choose their spouses carefully, as she did not want any more divorces in the royal family. Harry's grandmother was concerned that his relationship with Meghan was moving so fast, and she did not keep quiet about her feelings. Is Queen Elizabeth the reason why William did not approve of Meghan?
It seems that although the feud may have been indirectly caused by the queen's comment, William was only expressing concern because, like his grandmother, he loved and cares for his brother and that the queen did not intentionally cause tension.
