Princess Eugenie will act as peacemaker for Prince Harry amid royal rift, expert says
While the ongoing royal rift between Prince Harry and the institution continues, Princess Eugenie could be seen as a glimmer of hope for the Royal Family by acting as a "peacemaker" as she is said to have remained close with the Duke of Sussex.
Jennie Bond told OK! the cousins have always been close, and after pictures emerged of Harry, 37, and Eugenie, 31, sitting watching the Super Bowl together in California, the royal author said she is convinced they have been in touch with each other throughout the crisis of the Royal Family drifting apart from Harry.
"This rift has got to be solved one way or another," Jennie says, while it has been said that Prince Charles, 73, and Prince William, 39, don't have lines of communication with Harry at the moment.

"It will be corrosive if it carries on for much longer," she continued. "Hopefully, Eugenie can be the peacemaker. I’m absolutely certain Eugenie and Harry are still as close," before touching on that many thought the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, would have been the one to help salvage the tensions between the brothers.
"I think we all thought Kate would be the peacemaker, certainly at the funeral of Philip when she was engineering a chat between Harry and William," she shared. "But I think if there is a peacemaker, it will be Eugenie."
Jennie added that seeing the dad-of-two spending time with Eugenie was a good sign before mentioning: "It’s so important to have someone in his family he can trust."
Eugenie was photographed next to Harry as they watched the Super Bowl on Sunday, which saw Kanye West with his children Saint and North, as well as J Lo and Ben Affleck also attending.
It comes after the rift heightened when Harry was reported to be taking legal action after saying it is unsafe for himself, Meghan Markle and his family to return to the UK without security.
Royal expert Duncan Larcombe has since claimed Eugenie is "breaking ranks" from other members of the Royal Family by being seen in public with Harry.

He shared with us: "The royals have stayed quite consistent and firm when it comes to Harry and Meghan, as we’ve seen. The Queen has continued to effectively punish Harry for walking away by stripping him of his titles.
"We know that Charles and William do not have lines of communication with Harry that are any good, let alone on terms where they could sit and watch a sports event together.”
Duncan went on to say that Eugenie could be the "only link" the Prince still has with his family.
"Eugenie is breaking ranks from the rest of the royals by being seen so publicly to endorse Harry and Meghan in their new life," he explained.
"It endorses what they said about the royals. No other member of the family would be seen dead anywhere near Harry and Meghan.
“There are those that think that Eugenie is Harry’s only hope of him being brought back in should things not work out in paradise, so at least he is talking to someone in the Royal Family. By seeing Eugenie there, it looks like the only link he still has with his family.”
