Express: Harry and Meghan are set to go their separate way from William and Kate
The two sons of Prince Charles of England will acquire, from next spring, different roles within the British Royal Family, something they had assumed for some time
For years, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex have been side by side like the brothers they are, have been godfathers of their respective weddings, and have overcome some of the toughest and most difficult moments of their lives like the death of his mother, the remembered Diana of Wales.
The brothers have shared laughter and confidences in public events, in which they made clear the good harmony and the complicity between them. None of this will stop happening next spring, but everything will take a different turn.
Prince Harry and his brother will no longer be part of the same office, and each one will assume a well-differentiated role. It is a logical and natural evolution according to the position that each one occupies within the Windsor clan and the role that it is destined to play.

The new challenges facing the two brothers respond to two reasons: On one hand, the different responsibilities assumed by each one within the British Royal Family.
On the other hand, the fact that both have formed their own families and the division of offices and roles makes sense and, moreover, is inevitable, as Express has reported.
It is recalled that the Duke of Cambridge is the second in the line of succession to the British throne, behind his father, Prince Charles of England.
He will be, therefore, the heir to the Crown, while his brother Harry occupies the sixth place in the line of succession. Separation is something, therefore, natural and logical.
The birth of the first son of the Dukes of Sussex, scheduled for next spring, has led to the division of offices and functions expected to occur on that date. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their first pregnancy on October 15.
Markle and Harry's daughter will join cousins Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 6 months, from Prince William and Kate Middleton.

It will be then, as stated by the aforementioned British media, when two independent administrations are created, in the same way that it happened in 2009 when the two brothers stopped being part of Clarence House - their father's room - and went on to manage their responsibilities from a new office, the one in Kensington Palace.
The administrative and institutional breakdown of the Dukes of Cambridge and the Dukes of Sussex will not prevent them from continuing to appear together in certain public events or stop working together on certain projects.
In this sense, The Royal Foundation will be the link between the two couples, as they will continue to collaborate with this body and lend their support to the various non-governmental organizations that comprise it.
The Kensington Palace itself will also be there because this is where the two families will live together, although in separate dwellings.
While the Dukes of Cambridge reside in apartment 1A with their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue in apartment 1 the common life they started in the modest house of Nottingham Cottage.
With Queen Elizabeth in her 90's now, more and more questions are being asked about the future of the monarchy, and whether Prince Charles will still inherit the crown.
Reportedly, the latest poll indicates that 63% of the British public would prefer that Prince Charles is passed over for the crown in favor of his sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. But the most important opinion on the matter is certainly that of Her Majesty, the Queen.
The Queen is also believed to have big plans for Harry in terms of the Commonwealth. She hopes that his good standing in the eyes of the public will help to re-energize the organization and help make it more relevant.
