Prince William and Prince Harry Are Officially Splitting Their Royal Courts – The Cut

As of this spring, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s office (or “household, ” as it’s called) will be based at Buckingham Palace, while Prince William and Kate Middleton’s office will remain at Kensington Palace.It was first reported back in November that the Sussexes and Cambridges would be splitting their royal courts — which led to weeks of nonstop tabloid rumors that the two brothers are not as close, as well as extremely tiresome claims that their wives, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, did not get along. Since then, the two couples put up united fronts during public outings, and by February, the Sunday Times reported that the split was imminent.At the time, the report stated the split would happen ahead of the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan’s first royal baby (whose due date is in late April). It seemed well-timed, as the duke and duchess of Sussex are also moving out of their home ....


The official court split (which, in essence, means that the Cambridge and Sussex families will formally operate under two separate offices) makes sense.
The two princes have growing families: Kate and Prince William have three children (Prince George, 5; Princess Charlotte, 3; and Prince Louis, 9 months), and Meghan and Prince Harry are expecting their first child. Beyond that, Prince William will one day be king while Prince Harry will not, so the Cambridges and Sussexes just naturally have different roles. So, it seems perfectly logical that they should officially have two separate offices.Given that the Sussexes will soon be welcoming their first child, we hope all these big changes go as undramatically as possible, so they can focus on all the excitement of their own royal baby.This post has been updated throughout.Stay in touch.Get the Cut newsletter delivered daily Terms & Privacy Notice By submitting your email, you agree to our Terms and Privacy Notice and to receive email correspondence from us.... .
