Kate Middleton and Prince William set to ‘avoid Harry and Meghan’ during US tour

Prince William and Kate Middleton recently announced they would be travelling around the US next year after Prince William's Earthshot Prize ceremony last month.

It will be the first time the Cambridges have visited the US since their official visit to New York in 2014.

But the thrilling news of a royal tour brought widespread speculation over a reunion between the Cambridges and the Sussexes.

Duncan Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, claims he does not believe a reunion will take place during the visit.

Speaking to OK magazine, he said: “An American trip was inevitable because they’re our closest ally, but it’s tricky because as things stand, there’s no way on earth that Prince William would want to share any part of an official royal tour representing the Queen, Britain and the Commonwealth with Prince Harry.

“What we’re seeing are increasing signs that Harry and Meghan are setting themselves up almost as a satellite royal family in America.

“Meghan trades on her title to try to influence major political figures in America.

“Harry is still Prince Harry and is able to be whisked around New York like they were recently, as though nothing has changed.

“But of course they’re not royals and what, we’re being told by palace officials, won’t happen, is for Harry and Meghan to join William and Kate for any official part of this visit.”

The royal expert also revealed Kate and William's visit is being organised in an official royal capacity, which means protocol will be have to be followed.

He continued: “We don’t know the details of the trip yet but last time William and Kate went to America, they went to a red carpet event with rising stars of British film in LA.

“Even if there’s an event arranged in LA this time, I’m told that Harry and Meghan wouldn’t be a part of it unless they were invited separately and privately.

“So there’s going to be no reunion of the fab four, that’s for certain.

“There will be a lot of focus on the visit purely because of the rift between the two brothers.”

Mr Larcombe also predicted that Kate and William would likely to be travelling across the pond alone, leaving their three children at home.

He said: “When Prince William was a baby he spent his six weeks on a trip to Australia and New Zealand with his parents being paraded in front of the cameras.

“I think he wants to avoid that for his children.”

Representatives for the Sussexes and Cambridges have been contacted for comment.
