HARRY CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE
Star|June 24, 2024
THE DUKE OF SUSSEX REACHES A TIPPING POINT AFTER BEING FORCED TO SACRIFICE ANOTHER FRIENDSHIPFOLLOWING A SNUB FROM HIS DYING FATHER AND BROTHER WILLIAM'S ICY SILENCE.
HARRY CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE

IT was the society wedding of the year. On June 7, billionaire Hugh Grosvenor, the 7th Duke of Westminster, wed Olivia Henson, 31, a food company account manager, at England’s historic Chester Cathedral. On hand to help his childhood friend on his big day, future king Prince William. Noticeably absent? Hugh’s other royal pal, Prince Harry. “Hugh’s family has been close to the royals for generations,” a source tells Star of the godfather to William’s son Prince George, 10, and Harry’s older child, Prince Archie, 5. But with the brothers still feuding, it was clear both couldn’t attend, lest their drama distract from the pomp — especially after William, 41, was tapped to be an usher. Although Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, were invited, the source explains, “a delicate decision was made and the Sussexes respectfully declined.”

Harry has sacrificed more than wedding invites. Since stepping down from royal duties four years ago, the 39-yearold has suffered a string of losses. The recent blows: being cut off from his father, King Charles III, 75, and sisterin-law Princess Kate, 42, as they each battle cancer. “The reality is he’s lost his place among Britain’s high society,” explains the source, adding that the latest snub — just weeks after Charles publicly claimed he was too busy to see his son during a rare trip to London — has proven a breaking point for Harry, who’s been spiraling as he struggles to come to terms with the consequences of his choices. “There are some days when Harry says he can’t take it anymore — the slights, the coldness coming from the palace, it’s like he’s no longer a part of that family,” says the source, adding that a “worried” Meghan, 42, “seems to be his only anchor these days.”
