Did Prince William Just Indirectly Comment on Prince Harry & Meghan Markle?

The show must go on. Even though the royal family is having a bit of a crisis at the moment with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's seemingly abrupt departure, its members still need to carry out their duties. Prince William and Kate Middleton paid a visit Wednesday to the Khidmat Centre in Bradford, Yorkshire, to sit down with leaders from various faith and community groups -- and while they were there, the duke made what many are taking to be an indirect reference to Harry and Meghan.

  • Wednesday was the first time William and Kate carried out a royal engagement since The Meeting on Monday. 

    Before Queen Elizabeth released her statement, declaring that she gives Harry and Meghan permission to forge their own path, there was a top secret gathering at Sandringham involving herself, Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry.

    Wednesday, however, Wills was all smiles. Naturally, though, people couldn't help but read into some of the things he said at Khidmat Centre.

    "It's sometimes trying to get people to understand that's it's OK to have these challenges," William said during a speech. "We just need to deal with them and we need to move forward rather than just be stuck in paralysis."

    What does it all mean, Wills?!

    On the one hand, a thinly veiled remark about his current situation certainly doesn't jive with the royal family's "never complain, never explain" unofficial mantra.

    But on the other, it's actually kind of nice if the duke was referencing his brother with his words -- after all, Harry and William seem to have been "stuck in paralysis" for some time. 

  • Since Prince Harry brought Meghan Markle into the picture, things have reportedly been tense between William and Harry.

    Evidently, the tension stemmed from the fact that William asked Harry if he felt things were moving too fast with Meghan -- something Harry didn't take to kindly. Shortly after the royal wedding, we watched Harry and William drift apart in their work life, against a backdrop of salacious gossip about how bad things had gotten between the two. 

    Maybe it's time to move forward now? Maybe, in so many words, William is saying that it's OK to disagree; sometimes people need to just accept things and get on with their life?

  • In the coming weeks, the state of William and Harry's relationship will become more clear to the public.  

    In the meantime, though, we're going to choose to believe they're "moving forward."

    Because if anything needs a little evolution, it's the relationship between the Cambridges and the Sussexes the past few years.
