Once united, Prince William and Prince Harry are now far from the perfect picture of what a bond between two brothers should look like.

Their relationship became a rocky one ever since Harry and Meghan stepped down from the royal duties and started revealing information about the members of the Firm, accusing them among the rest of racism.

How deep the wounds of their broken relationship are is something we can never know for sure, but one thing seems certain, the bridges they burnt won’t likely be rebuilt in the near future as the anger between them is still hard to fade away.

Currently, the royal family is experiencing hard times as two working royals, the King himself, and Catherine the Princess of Wales are battling cancer.

After numerous speculations about her health and her whereabouts, Kate decided it was the time to put the stop to the rumors and open up of her condition, revealing she had cancer.

“In January, I underwent major abdominal surgery in London, and at the time, it was thought that my condition was non-cancerous,” she said in the video released on Friday.

Kate further video detailed that tests following her ‘planned’ abdominal surgery revealed the presence of cancer.

“My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy and I am now in the early stages of that treatment,” said the statement. “This of course came as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family.”

But Kate is not alone. She has the support of her people, her family, and her friends, who all sent messages with well-wishes.

Among those who reached out to both Charles and Kate are the Sussexes. Following the announcement of Kate’s diagnosis, Harry and Meghan issued a formal statement, though it’s also now been said that the couple “reached out privately” as well.

Royal expert and author Tom Quinn said: “Harry and Meghan have been in contact with William, but their private message was simply one of sympathy and didn’t include any suggestion the brothers should make up and let bygones be bygones or that Harry should fly back to the UK soon.”

Quinn added that William’s response to his brother’s message was not in the “warm, informal” way two grown up siblings who have gone through so much together are expected to communicate.

“There is just too much ill-feeling for that. William, who is still hurt by everything Harry has said in the past, has responded, but the response is very much engineered by the palace and it’s hardly the kind of warm, informal response you would expect from one brother to another. It’s more like the sort of communication you would get between two slightly wary diplomats.”

What exactly Harry wrote to William and Kate will likely never be exposed publicly.

There are different reports on the way Harry and Meghan learned of Kate’s cancer diagnosis. Some sources believe they were entrusted with the information before Kate’s public video, while others are convinced they found out about the cancer diagnosis in real-time along with the general public.

During these tough times for the British royalty, we hope the brothers would be able to reconcile and but aside their differences.
