A lot has been going on among the members of the Royal Family, especially when it comes to Prince William and Prince Harry. All the speculations and reports have led many to conclude that there's likely a rift between the two brothers.

However, one royal author claimed that it isn't just about the brothers but the situation of the monarchy in general. Royal author Juliet Reiden explained that Queen Elizabeth started to have a stronger influence on Prince William when compared to Prince Harry because the Duke of Cambridge would one day become King.

Queen Elizabeth is slowly starting to prepare William for his eventual role as King of England, after his father Prince Charles.

Despite the fact that both Harry and William have been known to have a close relationship with their grandma for a long time, things might be starting to change.

Reiden pointed out that, for the most part, the public has viewed William and Harry as equals but, ultimately, they have different roles.

As the Queen continued to work more closely with William, Reiden stated that this meant Prince Harry had to redefine his own role within the family. This might explain why he and his family have chosen to keep up with their charities and other duties independently from the Cambridges.

But does this mean that the Queen no longer cares about what Harry does? Queen Elizabeth did not attend the christening of Harry's son Archie because she reportedly had other engagements. This did not stop people from speculating that, perhaps, it could be because Her Majesty just didn't care enough.

We cannot really say for certain whether the Queen prioritizes her relationship with William more, but we can understand why the Duke of Cambridge would engage more closely with Her Majesty if she is preparing him for the throne. Nevertheless, there's no proof that this means she doesn't value her relationship with the Duke of Sussex.
