The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are ‘on the charm offensive’ to prove to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex that they are happy and ‘not trapped’, a royal expert has claimed.
Prince Harry, 36, – who yesterday revealed he is releasing a comprehensive memoir, sensationally claimed earlier this year that his brother Prince William, 39, and his father Prince Charles were ‘trapped’ in the British monarchy’s system during a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Royal biographer Duncan Larcombe, who wrote Prince Harry: The Inside Story, told… Poet magazine: ‘William and Kate have kept a dignified silence, but now let their actions speak for themselves.
“It’s almost like they’re sending Harry and Meghan a secret message saying, ‘We’re moving on, we’re still here, we’re not backing down, we’re moving on.’ It’s a message to Harry that life goes on – with or without him.’
Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 39, are ‘on the charm offensive’, sending a subtle message to the Duke, 36, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, that they are happy and ‘not trapped’ as he said they were, a royal expert has claimed
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 39, recently attended the European Championship final at Wembley, bringing with them their eldest son George, who turns eight on Thursday, which royal fans adored.
Candid photos of the trio embracing the emotional rollercoaster of the competition offered an intriguing glimpse of their warm family dynamics, and commentators said they came across as “full of love and affection.”
Afterwards, William issued a statement condemning the racism aimed at black England players who missed their penalties in the shootout that saw the national team miss out on the trophy.
“I am sickened by the racist insults against English players after last night’s game. It is completely unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behavior.

“It must stop now and everyone involved must be held accountable,” he wrote on Twitter, garnering praise from fellow social media users.
And earlier this month, the pair were seen giggling and smiling as they stepped outside to watch Wimbledon together.
“William and Kate are definitely on the charm offensive right now — and it’s working,” Duncan told Closer.
He called the Duke’s statement about racism in football ‘really powerful’, adding that there is ‘no doubt’ that William and Kate have taken Harry’s claim that his brother is ‘trapped’ in a role he does not want and ‘being determined to show’ that is not the case’.
Meanwhile, royal pundit Katie Nicholl said the Cambridges “have become more than ever congealed as the darlings of the nation lately” in a “quiet, dignified way”
He suggested that the Duchess in particular had shown “all smiles” at recent engagements to show Harry and Meghan that she is “happy and fun”.
Meanwhile, royal expert Katie Nicholl told the publication that the Cambridges “have more recently solidified than ever as the darlings of the nation” in a “quiet, dignified way.”
“They’ve stepped up their game,” she added.
During the explosive interview in March, Prince Harry, sixth in line to the throne, told the American chat show host: “I was trapped myself. I saw no way out. I was trapped, but I didn’t know I was trapped.
Royal sources have claimed Prince William does not believe he is ‘trapped’ in the British monarchy’s system and Prince Harry’s suggestions that he is ‘far off target’
When asked what he meant, Prince Harry replied, “Caught in the system, just like the rest of my family.
“My father and my brother are trapped. They can’t leave.’
Prince Charles, the Queen’s son, is next in line to the throne, while Prince William is second in line.
Royal sources later claimed Prince William does not believe he is “trapped” in the British monarchy’s system and Prince Harry’s suggestions that he is “far off track”.
Instead, the Duke of Cambridge, who is second in line to the throne behind his father, has “accepted” his role and “the path that has been set before him,” royal sources say.
Meanwhile, royal author Penny Junor claimed that Prince William “models himself after his grandmother the Queen.”
Junor, who wrote “Prince William: The Man Who Will Be King,” told The Sun, “I think Prince William absolutely gets what his destiny is and he embraces it.”
