Kate and William avoid Meghan & Harry despite being just mile away amid key speech today

The Sussexes arrived back in the UK yesterday as they prepare for a whistlestop tour of various charities – with first up being the One Young World opening ceremony in Manchester.

Their return to the UK has attracted a fresh round of criticism from palace insiders and a claim from a Royal biographer that the pair are being intentionally avoided by the Cambridges.

In her first public address in the UK since March 2020, Meghan, 41, will be speaking today about gender equality at the opening ceremony of the One Young World summit.

The charity aims to identify and promote young leaders and give them a global platform.

But the visit has become partly shadowed by comments from Royal experts about what they claim is a fractured relationship between Prince Harry and Prince William.

Royal biographer Angela Levin said: “I think it’s likely that Catherine and William will try to avoid any contact with Harry and Meghan until they know the contents of Harry’s memoirs and their Netflix documentary.

“They have lost their chance of being trusted as the chance is they will use any conversation.

“It’s their own fault for vastly exaggerating and being rude.”

Meghan and Harry’s Frogmore Cottage sits just a fifteen minute walk, or a five minute drive, from William and Kate’s new home, Adelaide Cottage.

They moved to the four-bed cottage to be closer to their children’s new school in Ascot, ready for when term starts next week.

Princes George, nine and Louis, four and Princess Charlotte, seven are due to start at the £7,000 a term Lambrook School in Berkshire after switching from St Thomas’s School in Battersea.

With the kids heading back to school this week, the Cambridges will be in their new home, very close to Harry and Meghan, for the next few days.

Referring to the relationship between the two Princes, a well-placed source told the Mail: “Trust, particularly at the moment, is a big issue”.

In the interview with The Cut, Meghan said that “just by existing”, she and Harry were “upsetting the dynamic of the hierarchy” while they remained with the Firm.

She added it takes “a lot of effort” to forgive, hinting that she can “say anything”, having not signed any confidentiality agreements with the Royals.

Harry is set to release a memoir later this year, which a biography expert told Express.co.uk is likely to continue revelatory emotional insights into the Prince’s life with the Royal Family.

One disgruntled Palace insider told The Sunday Times: “Everyone hoped they would go off to be financially independent, pursue their philanthropic endeavours and be happy – and that in going their own way, they might no longer feel the need to rail against the system as much as they still do.

“But then the star power of them requires an association with the Royal Family, and the fuel on those flames is the family discord.”

Another unnamed source added that the Queen, 96, does not “want to be on tenterhooks” and constantly waiting for the “next nuclear bomb”.
