The Duke of Sussex is set to be “haunted” by the rift that means he’ll spend Christmas without his family, despite it being the Queen’s first without her beloved husband.
- Prince Harry will remain in his $14 million Santa Barbara mansion with his wife and two children for Christmas, while the rest of the family rally around the Queen.
- Royal author, Duncan Larcombe, says he’ll “regret” burning the bridges and will “miss them” this Christmas.
- It follows royal news that Prince William and Kate Middleton have a "secret" third home
Having recently welcomed a daughter into the world, The Duke of Sussex will no doubt revel in his first Christmas as a father-of-two, basking in the Californian sunshine with his wife Meghan Markle.
But, deep down, royal author and expert Duncan Larcombe, has revealed Prince Harry will “regret” not being there for his grandmother as she navigates her first Christmas without Prince Philip.
Having never been one to particularly enjoy Christmas at Sandringham, one of Harry’s fondest memories used to be his “happy hours” with Prince Philip, which “helped forge both William and Harry’s love of the great outdoors”.
So, as the family prepare to mark the first Christmas without Prince Philip, how will Prince Harry be feeling hundreds of miles away?
Writing in his Woman royal column, Duncan says, “When Harry finally hits the pillow exhausted from a Christmas Day on daddy duty, surely his mind will be taken back to those childhood Christmasses with his brother and grandfather.
“Under his now-familiar public mask, Harry will understandably be haunted by the rift that sees him left out in the cold this Christmas.”
As tensions between Prince Harry and Prince William continue to rumble on, Duncan is convinced the Duke of Sussex may regret some of his actions of the past year—including that tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“The Harry I have known since he was a teenager will regret burning his bridges this year so spectacularly. Deep down he will miss them all as they mark a first Christmas without Prince Philip.”
