The only thing that saddens me; the media has pushed the narrative that there’s a strain in the relationship between William and Harry. The separation of households for the Cambridge’s and Sussex’s are just a natural progression in their roles and responsibilities within the Firm. The whole narrative about the two senior couples were and, still is, very much unnecessary and unfair.

Which is probably the same as most families. For example, the older Kents & Gloucesters are 1st cousins to the Queen so the family link between William's generation is distant. Very few of us have a close relationship with our grandmother's cousin's grandchildren. Many people wouldn't even know of their existence.

Right, exactly! To be honest, I think the Queen has been mostly close to Princess Alexandra, courteous and friendly to Prince Edward, Duke of Kent. I do not believe the Queen was ever very close to Prince Michael of Kent since he was so much younger. And indeed, Prince Michael's choice of bride was problematic. And personally, Princess Michael seems to have never been especially well-liked among senior royals.

Reportedly, none of the senior royals are invited to Lady Gabriella's wedding. Neither did they attend her brother's wedding. And they were not invited to either of the Wales brothers' royal weddings. Although, out of courtesy, their parents, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent were invited to the weddings of the Wales brothers. Pippa Middleton is invited to Lady Gabriella's wedding on May 18th, since the bridegroom is a former boyfriend of Pippa's. Lady Gabriella and her fiance were invited to attend Princess Eugenie's recent wedding, and I suppose Freddie and his wife were there too since their daughter was in the bridal party.

However, it's not unusual for parents' and/or grandparents' cousins to be known to their offspring, particularly if they all live in the same town and get together for family reunions. Living in the same town though is generally a rare occurrence for most large extended families in this day and age. The royals are a bit different though than most families. While I wouldn't expect extended cousins who are not first cousins to be particularly close, in the royal family, they do all know each other fairly well. And the British royal extended families do mostly all join the Queen for annual Christmas lunch in December.

Gabriella, Freddie and his wife were at the Cambridge wedding. They even attended the pre-wedding dinner on April 28th. That's why being excluded from the Sussex wedding was so intriguing to royal watchers.

Ah okay. Well, Freddie and his wife have a daughter around Prince George's age, and they attend the same school. Plus, the Cambridges were married at a larger venue. The Sussexes preferred a smaller wedding.

Maybe there were some bad feelings over Lady Gabriella's old boyfriend telling tales in the media about his time at KP when they were dating. The stories came out around the time of H&M's engagement. More likely, Harry is not as friendly with the Kent cousins as perhaps William might be.

Princess Eugenie will surely be attending Lady Gabriella's wedding. It remains to be seen which other royals will be invited.
