Prince William and Prince Harry have been sharing an office for their whole professional royal lives. But according to The Sunday Times, that joint office will be no more, as William and Harry have decided it’s time for separate big boy offices.
Roya Nikkhah, the royal correspondent for The Sunday Times, says that William and Harry have decided that it’s time to split up their shared office in Kensington Palace, and it’s all because their lives are moving in different directions. William’s got a wife and three kids, and Harry is about to be a dad.
“The brothers have leant on each other and looked after each other since their mother died. But now they have their own families, they no longer rely on each other as before.”
I’m sure this has nothing to do with William’s daily Minesweeper game getting interrupted by Mr. Popular’s phone ringing every five minutes. “Oi, can you switch it to vibrate or something? Kinda busy over here.”
Roya adds that it’s not just the office that will get split. Both William and Harry are reportedly considering plans to split the Kensington Palace household, and create two separate courts. This is mostly because Duchess Meghan and the baby will mean more things will be done as a family, which means way less bro’ing out with his older brother. Harry and Meghan might also be moving out of Nottingham Cottage, one of the smallest residences at Kensington Palace, for something a little bigger for their growing family.
The decision to get their own offices wasn’t a dramatic one, I don’t think, and that it was based solely in practicality. But still, anytime I think about siblings sharing a room, my mind goes straight for every sitcom in which said siblings finally lose their shit and defiantly mark a line down the middle of the room. Until I’m told the opposite, I choose to believe the decision to get separate offices happened after The Queen walked in on William and Harry fighting each other over who gets control of the roll of duct tape.
