Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘snubbed’ Kate in statement, royal watcher claims

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been accused of snubbing Kate Middleton's most personal project by a royal commentator who spotted it missing from a recent statement.

The Sussexes recently published a statement responding to the violence in Afghanistan, where they recommended a list of mental health charities for veterans to contact if they need help.

But Heads Together, Kate personal charitable foundation she co-founded with William and Harry in 2017, was nowhere to be found on the list.

News.au royal columnist Daniela Elser claimed this was a clear snub and a betrayal of one of the Royal Family's most hardworking and beloved members, even though Harry also founded the charity.

She wrote: "In the light of the events of more recent times, given the brotherly feuding, the score-setting TV outbursts and thin-lipped leaking to the media, the question is, was the decision to not include Heads Together simply accidental or a more pointed move?

"In fact, none of the three of the three mental health organisations suggested by Team Archewell were British.

"It is a curious situation given it was under the British flag that Harry so bravely served two tours on the frontline in Afghanistan."

Elser added including Heads Together would have been a much-needed conciliatory gesture to Kensington Palace.

She explained: "If Harry and Meghan had taken the couple’s Afghanistan statement as a moment to include Heads Together, it would have sent a very powerful signal – that, when they trotted out of Westminster Abbey, approximately 89 months ago, he had not turned his back on his homeland."

During the launch of Heads Together in 2017 Harry, Kate and William posed in headbands and ran a 100m sprint to generate media attention and raise money for the project.

At the time Kensington Palace described the campaign as the “biggest single project Their Royal Highnesses have undertaken together".

It comes following months of reports of a falling out between the Sussexes and the Cambridges. In their interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan claimed Kate had made her cry in the build-up to her wedding.

Meanwhile, Harry admitted he was on "different paths" to his brother William and described their relationship as "space".
