“Even when Harry spoke about the fall-out with William, there was no briefing from them. And by saying nothing, that is the smartest move," continued the source on the couple's reported plan of action moving forward.
William and Kate have listened to their advisors who instructed them to lie low.
“They don’t wish to elevate this soap opera — it’s honestly like watching Elizabeth Hurley in The Royals,” the source added.
“William and Catherine are surrounded by goodness, they have the Middletons, Carole and Mike, Pippa and her husband James, and James Middleton and his fiancée Alizee. They’re such a grounded, happy family.”
