According to historian Robert Lacey, the brothers ' relationship soured after Kensington Palace staff accused Meghan Markle of rude behavior and bullying.

Robert Lacey writes that Harry fiercely defended his wife and deliberately turned off the phone so that William could not reach him. However, the Duke of Cambridge did not back down and came to talk to his brother in person.
He was horrified by what he had been told about Meghan's alleged behavior, and he wanted to hear what Harry had to say. The showdown between the brothers was fierce and furious,

After that, William, according to him, decided that the families needed to separate and demanded that his brother and his wife leave Kensington Palace.
Lacey also noted that Kate was cautious about Meghan from the very beginning. And William, according to him, allegedly confessed to a friend that Megan had a certain plan.The accusations he had heard against her only confirmed his suspicions. He believed that it shattered the cherished principles of the monarchy,
