In recent developments, sources close to the monarchy have revealed that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie have taken a drastic step by severing all ties with their cousin, Prince Harry. Their decision appears to be an effort to gain further support and favor from their grandfather, King Charles. The once-close relationship between the Sussexes and the York sisters has now fractured, leaving Harry and Meghan in despair as they navigate the complexities of royal dynamics.

The slimmed-down monarchy, a concept championed by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle since their departure as working royals in 2020, has made things “very difficult” for King Charles. His plans for restructuring the royal family have been met with challenges, especially as the rift between Harry and his cousins deepens.

While Princess Eugenie remains a steadfast friend to the Sussexes, their relationship with Princess Beatrice has become more distant. Despite this, both Harry and Beatrice have supported each other during major milestones. Beatrice attended Harry’s wedding in Windsor Castle, and the couple congratulated her and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi when they married during the pandemic in July 2020.

eatrice and Eugenie had been among the few royals who continued to maintain contact with Harry during the turbulent aftermath of “Megxit.” Although they have more limited frontline duties, they empathized with their cousin’s desire for more freedom and supported his pursuit of happiness in California.

However, according to sources, they have privately grown increasingly concerned by Harry’s antagonistic actions, such as his bombshell Oprah interview and recent criticism of the institution in interviews conducted in the US. They felt that he had crossed a line by airing “dirty laundry” that threatened the stability of the monarchy.

Meanwhile, King Charles is said to view Harry and Meghan’s public defiance as disrespectful towards the crown, especially during this fragile time of transition following Queen Elizabeth’s death. He demands unwavering loyalty from family members representing the firm.

Our sources inform us that Beatrice and Eugenie have now pledged their unwavering allegiance to King Charles alone, with hopes of rising through the ranks as senior working royals. They aim to take on greater patronages and duties to boost their public profiles internationally over time. They reportedly realize that stronger bonds with Charles are critical, and maintaining links to Harry, who is openly rebellious, poses a danger of being associated with disloyalty in the future.

A difficult choice had to be made, as one palace aide explained. The girls saw the writing on the wall, understanding that only full and uncompromised support of the monarch going forward would help elevate their roles. Unfortunately, that meant cutting off Harry for the sake of self-preservation within the firm.

It has undoubtedly been a heartbreaking decision for Beatrice and Eugenie, given their once-close relationship with their beloved cousin. However, they view it as a pragmatic assessment necessary to protect their potentially flourishing futures in service to the crown.

As for Harry’s reaction to this perceived betrayal, sources say he has been left reeling in sadness and despair, experiencing yet another blow from his own family. He feels increasingly isolated and unwelcome in his native UK while focusing frantically on his memoirs and upcoming Netflix projects in hopes of regaining some control of the situation.

Deep down, he longs for reconciliation and acceptance, but it seems to be slipping further out of reach with each passing day. The loneliness he must be feeling is profound.

Of course, questions remain about the long-term implications of this fully estranged period between Harry and his relatives. Could time and circumstance soften stances through forgiveness and compromise, or is the divide now so vast that any coming together feels impossible? Only they truly know the depths of scars and resentments harbored on both sides.

However, what is evident is that this latest rift signals that relations may have sustained irreparable damage, which no future olive branch could fully remedy or repair. It is a tragic fall from supportive familial grace.

Now, with King Charles holding the keys to advancement and Beatrice and Eugenie aligning themselves loyally by his side, Harry’s dwindling familial support network appears non-existent from within the palatial circles of his self-imposed exile. The king has effectively tightened control. This leaves the resentful Duke with a difficult choice.

Will he continue to burn bridges publicly in vengeance through his projects? Or will wisdom and care for his brother, Prince William, compel him to seek resolution through more constructive private channels over time? Only the coming months will provide clarity.

One thing remains certain: the schism between Harry and the royal institution he was born into seems deeper than ever before, with even cousinly bonds now forfeit on the Windsor succession altar of allegiance to the firm above all else.

It is an extraordinarily complicated situation with no easy resolutions in sight. On that complex note, I’ll wrap up today’s Windsor report.
