As you may already know, the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry is very strained.
Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle ruffled too many royal feathers, and their subsequent move to California after leaving their royal duties didn’t help the relationship either.

However, the status of his relationship with William is still pretty contentious.
The family of four is set to fly over to England to celebrate Lilibet’s first birthday this coming weekend.
It just so happens that Kate and William will be over 100 miles away from the party tending to royal duties in connection with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Prince William & Kate Middleton Will Not Attend Lilibet’s 1st Birthday
On Saturday, June 4, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be approximately 130 miles away from the rest of the family.
According to the Daily Mail, William and Kate will meet with performers and crew involved in the special Platinum Jubilee Celebrations Concert taking place on the grounds of Cardiff castle.
The royal couple will attend some rehearsals and see some acts included in the celebrations.
Harry and Meghan’s upcoming trip will be the first time Queen Elizabeth II gets to meet her great-granddaughter.
The outlet also reports the Queen will attend a Thanksgiving Service at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday, June 3, with the entire Royal family. Lilibet’s birthday is on June 4th.
Lilibet Will Celebrate Her First Birthday With The Queen
Prince Harry and Meghan have only been back to the UK together once since welcoming their second child.
In April, the couple paid a visit to Harry’s grandmother ahead of her 96th birthday on April 21st.
E! News reported that a senior Buckingham palace spokesperson said, “Her Majesty has travelled to the Sandringham estate for a private break.”
Her latest break from the public eye comes after slew of missed events.
Most recently, Buckingham Palace confirmed that Her Majesty would not be joining the other members of the royal family at the Easter Mattins Service at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on April 17. A reason for her absence was not disclosed to the public.
Despite keeping her distance from the public, Queen Elizabeth II did make time to meet with her grandson during his recent visit.
In April, Harry sat down with Hoda Kotb on “TODAY” and opened up about his grandmother’s well-being.
“It was just so nice to see her,” he told Kotb. “She’s on great form.”
Harry explained how he, Meghan and Her Majesty shared some laughs over tea during his visit.
“[The Queen’s] always got a great sense of humor with me,” Harry admitted. “It was really nice to catch up with her.”
And if you think Harry will let the Atlantic Ocean keep him from protecting his grandmother, think again.
Harry insured that he is making sure she is well looked after.
“I’m just making sure that she’s, you know, protected and got the right people around her,” the father-of-two said.
