Prince Harry and Prince William are reportedly distancing themselves from one another, despite being very close growing up.

The pair relied on one another growing up, especially after their mother Diana passed away in a shocking car crash when the boys were teenagers.

But now there is set to be a massive shake up in the royal family as they are reportedly going their separate ways.

The princes are in the process of establishing separate ‘courts’ in preparation for their different roles in the future.

Up until now, William and Harry have shared the same media team, secretaries and support staff. As have Kate, Meghan, George, Charlotte and Louis.

However, now that Meghan is pregnant, the princes are planning to establish separate offices. 

The princes once relied heavily on one another, but a source told The Sunday Times, ‘They have their own families, they no longer rely on each other as before.’

When Charles becomes king, William will become the Prince of Wales, his and Kate’s roles will shift towards more formal duties, while Harry and Meghan can continue on with their duties as before.

Plans for an eventual division are believed to have began back in 2013 when their first joint private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton retired, according to the Daily Mail.
