PRINCE William thinks Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview “crossed a line” – and the pair were “downgraded” at the anniversary as a result, royal insiders claim.
The Sussexes have only attended one event in public since returning home for the celebration.
They beamed at the crowd outside St. Paul’s for a thanksgiving service before walking hand in hand into the cathedral.
The couple sat opposite Kate and William and did not exchange glances with the Cambridges during the service.
Afterward, they promptly left without joining a reception with other royals and VIPs.
The Sussexes were also spotted watching Trooping the Color from a window in the Major General’s office, although reports suggested Her Majesty invited them to stand beside her on the palace balcony.
And on Saturday they celebrated daughter Lilibet’s first birthday “in private” at Frogmore Cottage, rather than traveling to London for the Platinum Party at the Palace.
But sources claim it’s no coincidence that there hasn’t been any interaction between William and Harry over the long weekend.
An insider told the Telegraph that the Sussexes’ conversation with Oprah in March 2021 – during which they made the now infamous allegation of royal racism – is still outraged.
“The media might try to highlight them, but in reality they won’t be prominent. A line has been drawn,” said one adviser.
It is understood that some senior royals believe the interview “crossed a line”.
Harry and Meghan have made no “acknowledgment of the damage caused,” the newspaper reports – and have been “downgraded” as a result upon their return.
In comparison, the Cambridges have been the focus of celebrations over the past four days.
They were the focus of almost every major event, including last night’s concert and the Thanksgiving service.
They took their seats at St. Paul’s nearly 20 minutes after Harry and Meghan and left about 60 seconds early.
The precautions are said to have been in place for months and were specifically designed to prevent the brothers from coming face to face.
It comes as…
Harry and Meghan are believed to have met Her Majesty privately as they introduced little Lili to their namesake.
They are also said to have visited Charles and Camilla.
During Friday’s service, Harry was spotted laughing with family and friends.
He was paired alongside cousins Eugenie, Beatrice and Peter Phillips for the event.
Meanwhile, Charles and William are said to have been “encouraged” and “touched” by the outpouring of goodwill towards them last night.
Both heirs gave speeches in the Queen’s honor, with Charles paying tribute to “Her Majesty, Mummy”.
The Prince of Wales also spoke movingly of her “strength and endurance”, husband Prince Philip.
