Royal split: Prince William, Harry drift further apart in charity move

Sarah Ferguson Duchess of York and Prince Andrew Duke of York

While the newlyweds did so for the Queen and Prince Philip, they didn't do the same for William on Friday, but instead commented a happy birthday on William's shared Instagram account with Duchess Kate.

There have been reports over the past year of a rift, first between Kate and Meghan, and then between William and his younger brother, Harry.

The inaugural event was billed as an annual affair.

Harry and Meghan at the Endeavour Fund Awards in February 2019.

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex take part in the Trooping the Colour parade in central London, Britain June 8, 2019. The celebratory greeting was really brief and easy to miss and so, fans of the future King are upset.

Prince Harry and Meghan will break away from the Royal Foundation, which Prince William and Catherine will stay with.

Meghan and Harry's unceremonious birthday wishes for Prince William, especially in comparison to the rest of the royal family's, come just two days after the couple officially exited the Royal Foundation, the charity that they ran with William and his wife, Kate Middleton. "For years, before he met Meghan, he was the royal, third wheel, standing behind William and Kate", Larcombe added.

Royal aides said the decision was a mutual one between all four royals, as the couples are on divergent paths. The Royal Foundation unites people to help tackle society's biggest challenges.

But it's a major blow for the Royal Foundation, which Meghan only officially joined after her wedding last May, which had meant to harness the star power of all four.

Royal commentators said the move was the final act in the division of the couples' public duties.

- Will they still work together?

Kensington Palace said: "These changes are created to best complement the work and responsibilities of Their Royal Highnesses as they prepare for their future roles, and to better align their charitable activity with their new households".

- What about the two Foundations being seen as rivals? A name has not yet been chosen for the new foundation.

- What did the duke say?

"You wonder whether they got back to their 11-bedroom tiny cottage and Harry was told off".
