The Duke of Sussex is in Britain with Meghan Markle who gave a speech at the One World summit on Monday. Their visit has ignited a debate about whether the couple is set to meet Prince William and Kate Middleton, despite a speculated row between the Sussexes and Cambridges.
Speaking to Newsweek, Robert Jobson, the author of William at 40: The Making of a Modern Monarch, said that the Duke of Sussex’s forthcoming autobiography could mean a meeting is less likely.
He said: “Why should either do this when they’ve got the book hanging over them and there’s obviously friction?
“If they don’t feel it’s time for either side to share an olive branch, then they’re not going to meet.
“I don’t see how anybody could really be at ease with Harry and Meghan when the whole book is waiting to come out.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are based at Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Castle estate when they are in the UK.
It is very close to the new home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Adelaide Cottage.
However, the royal brothers reportedly haven’t made any plans to meet up.
The Sussexes have a packed calendar of events as they will be in Germany on Tuesday before returning to London on Thursday for the WellChild Awards 2022.

“This isn’t a book by someone else with their help.
“Every word he is going to have to take ownership for.
“It’s a very different situation. I think they’re going to have to wait and see.
“I don’t really blame William anyway with that because there’s a lack of trust.
“There’s not a great deal of love between Meghan and him by the looks of it anyway.
“It’s going to be very difficult to build bridges after this book.
“I think it was probably an unwise decision, taken probably purely for money, and he will say it was done to put his side of the story but equally there will be things that they do not want to share and William will not want out there.
“It’s private and he’s going to be the king. Whatever Harry says about him whether it’s good, bad or indifferent it’s going to have an impact on his life story as the king. It’s a dangerous game.
“I don’t think the problem is necessarily what is said but the fact that it’s being said.”
