The Duke of Sussex said the alleged cancellation of the Prince of Wales was among a number of factors that made him feel “down” in the days leading up to his wedding day.
She said she was feeling particularly sad on the eve of her wedding, partly because of the dispute that allegedly occurred between Kate and Meghan over the bridesmaids’ dresses.
The royal added that friends who were with him at the luxury hotel asked ‘where Prince William was’.
He claimed the brothers had planned to spend the night together and take a public walk, just as they had done for William’s wedding to the Princess of Wales in 2011.
Prince Harry said a number of factors contributed to his feeling depressed in the run up to his wedding, pictured.
The Duke of Sussex said he wondered what had changed his brother’s mind, and whether it was the dispute over dresses or the fact that he was going to marry with a beard, which had been another point of tension in the race. until the wedding.
He also said he wondered if William was unhappy about making his childhood best friend, Charlie van Straubenzee, his godfather over his brother.

He also added that his brother had been reluctant to take part in a walk, allegedly telling him: ‘you don’t have to do everything (the press office) tells you’.
