Washington D.C. [USA], Feb 18 (ANI): Prince William and his brother Prince Harry’s royal household will be split “within weeks”, said a source.
In October last year, the Sunday Times had reported that the two were “considering a formal division of their joint royal household, which is based at Kensington Palace, and the creation of separate courts to reflect their increasingly different responsibilities."
On Sunday, a source told E! News that William and Harry are all set to split their household within weeks, thus confirming a new Sunday Times report about the same. 
The report had stated that the division will happen before the birth of Harry and his wife Meghan Markle's first child this spring.
The source also told E! News that it is hoped that the split will help ease the tensions between the brothers and their wives. 
It also added that the first major division of the royal household will be of their media team, adding that William and Harry are "working together" on the plans. According to the insider, the two courts would also have separate staff.
"When William becomes the Prince of Wales, he will take on a lot of extra responsibility, including the Duchy of Cornwall. Harry and Meghan have none of that, and seem ambitious about forging their own paths,” a source told the Sunday Times.
However, Kensington Palace has not commented on any of the reports yet.
The palace, however, did announce in November that Harry and Meghan plan to move out of Nottingham Cottage in the Kensington Palace complex. The Sunday Times also reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's new separate office is expected to remain at the Kensington Palace only.
According to a royal correspondent writing for The Sunday Times as cited by E Online, Harry and William will reportedly split their royal households "within weeks."
However, William and Kate will continue to work with Harry and Meghan on charitable causes headed by the quartet's Royal Foundation.
The two couples were last spotted together on Christmas, where they were all smiles. (ANI)
