AceShowbiz - The alleged feud between Prince Harry and Prince William may be more serious than everyone has thought. Harry and his pregnant wife Meghan Markle have only recently moved out of Kensington Palace to settle in Frogmore Cottage, but a new report suggests that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may take a more dramatic move and it has something to do with Prince William.
According to The Sunday Times of London, the British royal family is trying to get Prince Harry and the former "Suits" actress away from England now that she may give birth anytime soon. The report continues stating that they are scrambling to try to contain Meghan's popularity as they are worried she could become "bigger than [Princess] Diana."
With that being said, they allegedly want the soon-to-be-parents to be as far away as possible from the media and also from Prince William. "There have been various ideas floated for them to take on a job abroad, such as governor-general of Australia or Canada, wherever," a source tells the publication.
However, the idea for the couple to move to Canada was "mooted, then booted" since Meghan had spent seven years in the country and that would only make them be an easier target for the U.S. and tabloid coverage. Australia apparently is also not a better idea as the source shares, "The trouble is that you effectively set them up as king and queen of a whole separate country. And 24-hour media means that Australia is not as far away as it used to be."
Another place that is also under consideration is Africa, which means a lot to the couple. Harry previously set up a charity in Botswana back in 2006 and the prince also referred to the country as his "second home."
"In some ways it would suit William to get his brother out of the country for a few years and Meghan as far away as possible," one pal of Harry and William claims.
William is starting to prepare to take over the throne and the massive global attention that Harry and Meghan have been receiving is deemed bad. His private secretary, Simon Case, reportedly tells the prince that a period separation between him and Harry may help them improve relations between them.
"It's a bit sad really," someone who knows both princes adds. "The wives don't get on. The brothers have fallen out."
"People are telling William, 'Don't worry. Your influence will grow and Harry's will fade,' " a source shares. "This is peak Harry."
However, Meghan and Harry reportedly are not down with the idea.
After moving from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate, "Meghan and Harry feel they have been cut adrift," says one source. "They sent them down to Frogmore to try to keep them out of the limelight for a bit. This is doomed to fail. They are worried that Harry and Meghan are going to establish a totally separate enterprise that nobody can get under control."
The source continues, "There are discussions in palace circles about how do we harness Harry and Meghan and this tremendous global attention they get. How do we draw them back, because laying down the law and ticking them off doesn't work at all."
In related news, it's said that Meghan's mom Doria Ragland has arrived in London ahead of the arrival of her daughter's royal baby. Back in October, Kensington Palace stated that Doria "is very happy about this lovely news, and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild."
