Meghan and her husband Prince Harry sent shockwaves around the globe when they announced they would be stepping back from their royal duties earlier this year. The stunning news followed months of reported feuds between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Initially, many believed the tensions were between Meghan and Kate, but Harry confirmed that he and his brother William had been having “good days” and “bad days” in 2019.
The four young royals had once been pipped as a solid team who would regularly work together, known as the ‘Fab Four’ so many royal fans were devastated at the prospect of a potential fallout – especially as relations between the couples seemed to start off very well.
During the couples’ engagement interview in 2017, the BBC’s Mishal Husain asked them what the introduction was like with Kate and William.
Harry responded: “It was exciting. I mean, I’ve, you know, I’d been seeing her for a period of time when I literally didn’t tell anybody at all.
“And then William was longing to meet her and so was Catherine, so you know being our neighbours we managed to get that in a couple of — well, quite a few times now and Catherine has been absolutely…”
Meghan interrupted: “Wonderful.”
Harry continued: “Amazing, as has William as well, and then my father as well.
“A handful of teas and meetings and all sorts of gatherings over at his place as well.
“So no, the family together have been absolutely, you know, a solid support and my grandparents as well have been — have been wonderful throughout this whole process and they’ve known for quite some time.
“So how they — how they haven’t told anybody is — is again a miracle in itself.

Harry continued: “And the corgis took to you straight away!
“I’ve spent the last 33 years being barked at; this one walks in, absolutely nothing…”
Meghan laughed and said: “Just laying at my feet during tea, it was very sweet.”
Harry commented: “Just wagging tails, and I was like just, ‘Argh’.”
Some royal insiders have suggested that William told Harry he was rushing into his relationship with Meghan – he proposed to the American actress after approximately a year and a half of dating.
This may have triggered months of dispute between the brothers.
However, William is said to be keeping “tabs” on Harry now he’s in LA by regularly calling his younger brother, which leads some to believe the rift between the two has healed.
