The tough reason why Prince Harry and Meghan are splitting from Prince William and Kate
It's sad but understandable.
Ever since Meghan Markle officially became a Royal, she, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton, and Prince William have become something of a Royal Family Fab Four.
They're cool, they're young, they're hip, and they're in tune with the times, so it was quite the fitting label.
But sadly, it appears that the band may be breaking up.
Following reports that Harry and William are considering setting up separate offices in anticipation of their changing royal duties, royals author Sally Bedell Smith tells PEOPLE that Harry and Meghan are looking to go their own way.
She also says that the Royal Fab Four split is natural as Harry and Meghan's interests and pursuits may not be what William and Kate want, thus it is the right time for everyone to do their own thing.
“The arrival of Meghan has changed the dynamic of the relationship in a fairly significant way. It is inevitable and practical because it gives Harry and Meghan some freedom to build up their own collection of interests and charities.
“Meghan has very strong views on what she is interested in and that may be what Harry shares, but not what William and Kate share.”
But while the band may be splitting, Bedel Smith says that they're likely to keep their Royal Foundation running, which is the banner in which they organise charitable endeavours.
And of course, there's also the whole thing of Harry and Meghan starting their own family soon.
“They have brought many charities working in the same sector together to empower them and lend their positions. But they will increasingly follow their own respective interests.
“I think it really is just a shift in priorities and interests
"William is a husband and father of three and his focus is primarily on them, and Harry will soon be a father."
Yes it's a little sad that we won't see the Fab Four together as often, but everyone has to grow up and move on at some point.
But let's look at this from a glass half-full perspective. They're all still obviously super-close, and it just makes all subsequent Fab Four get togethers even more special for them and us.
