Why Prince George and Prince Harry are never photographed together.
Now before you start panicking, don't worry—Prince Harry and Prince George aren't the latest pair of 'feuding' royals. There's no beef between the five-year-old prince and his uncle, but oddly enough there are no pictures of the pair together either. It seems strange, given how much Harry spoke about wanting kids before he met and married Meghan Markle. One would assume an uncle so keen to have kids of his own would be eager to spend time with his nephew and help out Prince William and Kate Middleton, especially when George first came along.
