Queen’s blunt divorce warning to William and Harry: ‘Enough is enough!’
THE QUEEN once decided “enough is enough” after a string of royal divorces, with Prince William and Prince Harry warned that their marriage must be “for keeps”, an unearthed account claims.
Her Majesty, 95, spent her first Christmas in more than 70 years without her Prince Philip this year. She was originally supposed to host a large gathering at Sandringham, but cancelled these plans shortly before Christmas amid the sharp rise in Omicron cases. A source told Us Weekly that Prince William ‘liaised’ with Prince Charles and Princess Anne, who was at home isolating, to organise a group Zoom call.
The source added the virtual celebration “brightened up” the Queen’s day. Among the in-person attendees at Windsor Castle was Prince Andrew, though his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson did not attend. Andrew and Fergie separated in 1992, and divorced four years later. Alongside Prince Charles and Princess Anne, three of the Queen and Prince Philip’s four children have all gone through a divorce.
According to a 2006 report in the Sunday Express, Her Majesty was not overly happy about this. She reportedly warned William and his younger brother Prince Harry that “enough was enough” in terms of royal divorces.
At the time, William was in a relationship with university sweetheart Kate Middleton, which first began when the pair were at St Andrew’s University.
Harry, meanwhile, was romantically involved with Chelsy Davy. Having met in early 2004, they had an on-off relationship until mid-2010.
A Buckingham Palace aide told the Sunday Express: “The Queen is the head of the Church and so from a point of principle she is opposed to royal divorces. “However, she has witnessed the divorces not just of her sister Princess Margaret, but also those of her three eldest children.
“She now feels, to put it bluntly, that enough is enough. “She does not want to name names, but she is adamant that there are going to be no further royal divorces during her reign.”
