The two clashing posts came as a source told the Sun: 'Indeed he [Prince William] is glad that he is returning, however briefly - he wishes that it wasn't at the same time as his Irish trip because he knows what will happen is that the spotlight as far as papers and TV are concerned will be fully on Harry and Meghan.' 

'He recognises that for the media this will be "the big story."'

The source went on to say that while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will not be 'jealous' of the coverage, the tour of Ireland is particularly important as it's the first carried out by any member of The Firm since Brexit.

  Canada to stop paying Harry and Meghan's security bills 'in coming weeks' Canada will stop paying any of Prince Harry and Meghan’s security costs ‘in the coming weeks’ according to a spokesman. According to Global News CA, Canadians have been paying some of the costs for the duke and duchess since November 2019, but that will not continue for much longer. A statement given to Yahoo News UK from the Office of the Minister of Public Safety in Canada read: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex choosing to re-locate to Canada on a part-time basis presented our government with a unique and unprecedented set of circumstances.

He will then be joined by his wife Meghan – and, possibly, the couple's son Archie – early next week for five further official appearances.

These include the official opening of the Silverstone UK Experience, Mountbatten Music Festival and an occasion to mark Independent Women's Day.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton were at the theatre in London last night and will be on a royal tour in Ireland from March 3 to 5.

However, the 'Fab Four' - as William, Kate, Harry and Meghan were once known - are expected to join together with other royals at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.
