Prince William says he is "sad" that he and younger brother Prince Harry are now "separate entities," in comments made public just before the two will come meet together with the Queen and their father to discuss the Duke of Sussex and wife Meghan Markle's historic announcement that they intend to "step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family."
Last year, the couple moved from Kensington Palace, figuratively and physically, and formed their own household amid months of rumors of a rift between the couples. In October, Harry confirmed in a documentary that there was tension between him and William, without elaborating.
"I've put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can't do that any more; we're separate entities," the Duke of Cambridge, who is third in line to the British throne, told a friend, the Sunday Times reported. "I'm sad about that. All we can do, and all I can do, is try and support them and hope that the time comes when we're all singing from the same page. I want everyone to play on the team."
