The Queen’s blunt divorce warning to William and Harry: ‘Enough is enough!’ | Royal | News

Queen: ‘Lessons to learn’ on security says royal expert

Her Majesty, 95, spent her first Christmas in more than 70 years without her Prince Philip this year. She was originally scheduled to host a large gathering in Sandringham, but canceled those plans shortly before Christmas amid the sharp rise in Omicron cases. A source told Us Weekly that Prince William ‘contacted’ Prince Charles and Princess Anne, who were at home in isolation, to organize a group call with Zoom.

The source added that the virtual celebration “lit up” Queen’s Day.

Among the personal attendees at Windsor Castle was Prince Andrew, although his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson did not attend.

Andrew and Fergie divorced in 1992 and divorced four years later.

Along with Prince Charles and Princess Anne, three of the Queen and Prince Philips’ four children have all been through a divorce.

According to a 2006 report in the Sunday Express, Her Majesty was not very happy about this.

She reportedly warned William and his younger brother Prince Harry that “enough was enough” regarding royal divorces.

At the time, William was in a relationship with college sweetheart Kate Middleton, which only began when the couple was at St Andrew’s University.

Harry, meanwhile, was romantically involved with Chelsy Davy. After meeting each other in early 2004, they had an on-off relationship until mid-2010.

A Buckingham Palace aide told the Sunday Express: “The Queen is the head of the church and therefore she is in principle opposed to royal divorces.

“But she has witnessed the divorces not only from her sister Princess Margaret but also from her three eldest children.

“She feels now, to put it bluntly, that enough is enough.

“She does not want to name names, but she is determined that there will be no more royal divorces during her reign.”

Margaret, Her Majesty’s younger sister, married Antony Armstrong-Jones in 1960, but they divorced in 1978 after a series of extramarital affairs. It was the first divorce from a high-ranking member of the royal family since Princess Victoria Melita of Edinburgh in 1901.

The royal source continued: “The concept of divorce contradicts the entire queen’s upbringing, which is about duty and about soldiers in adversity.

“She has inherited many of her views from her mother, who was scarred by the King Edward and Wallis Simpson scandal.”

Edward VIII abdicated the throne to marry the divorced American Wallis Simpson in December 1936.

William and Harry were under no illusion of the need to find ‘the one’.

The source explained: “Both Princes William and Harry have not been in any doubt that when they get married, it is for preservation.

“It is believed that Harry would greatly benefit from several years as a bachelor.”

Harry eventually met his match about 10 years later when he began a relationship with Meghan Markle.

William married Kate five years after the first report.

The Duke of Cambridge admitted that he learned from his mother and father’s experiences before courting Kate.

During the engagement interview in 2010, he said of Kate: “I would give her a chance to look back and forth if she needed it before it all became too much.

“I’m trying to learn from the past. I just wanted to give her the best chance to fall for and see what happens on the other side.”
