In the latest twist of the ongoing Royal rift, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly been excluded from the high society wedding of Prince Harry's childhood friend, Hugh Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster.
The decision comes amidst soaring tensions between the royal brothers, exacerbated by the release of Omid Scobie's controversial new book.
The Duke of Westminster is said to have initially considered inviting the Sussexes but ultimately opted for Prince William and Kate Middleton to prevent potential clashes during his big day.
The move was apparently made to avoid awkward moments for King Charles and Queen Camilla, considering the strained relations between the royal siblings.
Hugh Grosvenor, one of Britain's richest men at the age of 32, recently proposed to his fiancée Olivia Henson at his family's estate, Eaton Hall in Cheshire.
The couple is set to tie the knot at Chester Cathedral on June 7 in what is anticipated to be the wedding of the year.
Adding complexity to the situation, it was revealed that Hugh Grosvenor is the godfather of both Harry's son, Archie, and Prince William's son, Prince George.
Being a lifelong friend to both brothers, he is believed to be the only friend chosen by both to mentor their respective children.
To further underscore the apparent division, rumors circulate that Prince William is being considered for the role of best man at Grosvenor's wedding, intensifying the contrast between the two brothers' relationships with the Duke of Westminster.
The exclusion of Harry and Meghan from the guest list for this high-profile event serves as a poignant reminder of the ongoing tensions within the Royal Family, contributing to the speculation and public interest surrounding the dynamics between the once-close siblings.
As the wedding date approaches, all eyes will be on the Duke of Westminster's ceremony, further highlighting the complexities of royal relationships in the public eye.
