Prince William and Kate plan ‘secret’ US trip as brothers ‘committed to peace’

Prince William and Kate Middleton are expected to make a low-key visit to Santa Barbara to visit Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for "peace talks".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are believed to be taking their children to visit Uncle Harry and new cousin, Lilibet, who was born earlier this month.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now on parental leave in the US.

It follows news that Kate Middleton's title will change when the Prince Charles becomes King.

After being locked in a "bitter feud" following Prince Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey the brothers are expected to try and work things out during an upcoming reunion trip.

US Weekly reports the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are planning a secret trip to America to meet their new niece, Lilibet, and embark on "peace talks" with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

A palace insider reportedly said: "There’s a shared desire to move on. William and Kate want to meet Lili, and they agree it’s only fair that they visit Harry and Meghan on their home turf."

Royal watchers will be desperate to see how the reunion goes, but there's a mutual desire for the "peace talks' to be kept under the radar.

"There won’t be a lot of fanfare and you won’t see pictures of them building sand castles on the beach in Santa Barbara," the insider added

The ongoing effects of the global pandemic and Harry and Meghan in Santa Barbara, means it been difficult for the brothers to get together for a proper heart-to-heart in recent months.

The pair met at Prince Philip's funeral in April, but the reunion was short-lived as the Duke of Sussex had to return to America shortly after the event ahead of Lilibet's arrival.

US Weekly now reports a mutual understanding that more can be resolved in a face-to-face encounter than over the phone.

"The view is that it will do them a world of good to talk things out in person".

The brothers have drifted in recent month with Harry publicly claiming William is trapped inn the institution while criticising the parenting skills of Prince Charles.

Royal observers say there is much healing still to be done with the unveiling of Princess Diana's statue at Buckingham Palace.

And there is a general feeling that the brothers need to put their differences aside.

An insider told US Weekly: "At the end of the day, William and Harry both realise blood is thicker than water.

"It's not doing anyone any good to be locked in this bitter feud. They're all committed to finally making the peace."
