The Queen’s former press spokesperson has spoken amid ongoing rumours of a Prince William and Prince Harry feud.
Dickie Arbiter discussed Harry and Meghan Markle’s move from Nottingham Cottage in London to Windsor’s Frogmore Cottage, admitting that this was where all the rift rumours began.
He told Us Weekly, “It’s all based on Harry and Meghan moving out of Kensington Palace to move into Windsor.
“The reason [Harry and Meghan] are moving from Kensington Palace is the way they’re living at the moment is too small. There’s two bedrooms and a living room and a dining room downstairs. There’s no outside space and it’s just not big enough for a growing family.”
He told the mag, “Harry has decided that he wants to set up his own office, which is fair enough. While he was single, he was living in his comfort zone with his brother and his sister-in-law.
“But now he’s married, he’s creating his own comfort zone, with his wife, and it just makes sense. You can’t have a small staff running the offices of two people. Harry is now moving on and setting up his own office. Nothing unusual in that.”
Arbiter added that he doesn’t think the Queen has any issues with the brothers dealing with their work and personal lives separately.
He insisted, “It’s called evolution. The monarchy has been chosen for 1,000 years and Harry is now in his mid-30s… it just makes sense that now he’s married and he’s got his own interests — that some of which he shares with his brother, but most of them, he doesn’t share with his brother — that he has his own office to run his job. It just makes sense. It’s logistically the right thing to do.”
