Prince William is reportedly "sad" about how things have developed.
"I've put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can't do that anymore - we're separate entities," William reportedly said, per The Sunday Times.
According to the publication, William also spoke of his frustration that Harry is no longer part of the "team" by deciding to become financially independent. The royal said he hopes that there will "come a time when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be singing from the same page" once again.
In the days following the couple's announcement, the palace confirmed that a solution would be reached this week. Prince Harry will join a family meeting on Monday afternoon with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Prince William at Sandringham "to talk things through."
The face-to-face summit, which Meghan is likely to join by phone from Canada, follows a series of consultations and will see "a range of possibilities" brought to the table. These options, says the source, will "take into account the thinking of the Sussexes outlined earlier in the week. Making a change to the working life and role in the monarchy for the duke and duchess requires complex and thoughtful discussions."
