All good things must come to an end, they say, and unfortunately the day has come for Prince William and Prince Harry to go their own way. Although Kensington Palace has been a much loved double player all their lives, it has announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will formally split households with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
In a statement released by the palace, it was confirmed that "the Queen has agreed to set up a new household for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May of last year." The household, which will be made with the support of The Queen and The Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring, "the statement said. Currently, Prince William, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are all at Kensington Palace Household, but that will change when Meghan and Harry & # 39; s office will move to Buckingham Palace, and the couples will have separate communication teams (and social media accounts, we suppose). Meghan and Harry & # 39; s office will join with those of his aunt and uncles – Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward – they are also based on Buckingham Palace.
The division arrives shortly after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex leave Kensington Palace and enter their new home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. Although the formal distribution of households may seem like a surprise, it has actually been in the pipeline for a while. In the palace statement the relocation was described as "long planned", and the Daily mail royal correspondent Rebecca Engels said it was "5/6 years plus" in the making.
And it is logical that the brothers and their families divorce in a professional manner. With Prince William & # 39; s new role as Prince of Wales on the horizon when Prince Charles becomes king, his work will take a slightly different direction on Harry. Plus, with their growing families (who over time will take on their own royal roles) it is imperative that they become two separate units as opposed to one.
So get the best out of the last few weeks of the & # 39; Fab Four & # 39; – because together you will see much less of them. Sob.Follow Cat on twitter.
