Princes Harry and William Have a 'Secret Sister' | 22 Words

It turns out that Princes William and Harry have a "secret sister" that nobody knows about.

Read on to find out exactly who she is...

Because right now, who isn't obsessed with the British royal family?


Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey aired last week, the global obsession with the royals is perhaps bigger than ever.

And there's no doubting that William and Harry are firm favorites of the historical monarchy.


The pair are the sons of the infamous Princess Diana and it's clear that they've grown up to become just like their late mom.

Princess Diana undoubtedly revolutionized the royal family...


And she broke so many strict royal boundaries by embarking upon her own charity work and, of course, being one of the first public figures to shake hands with and hug an AIDS sufferer in the late '80's.

There's a reason why they called her the people's princess!


When Diana welcomed William in 1982 and Harry in 1984, she strived to raise them as normally as possible and taught them important, real-life values.

When Diana divorced Prince Charles in 1996, she carried on with her extensive charity work and activism...


Which is what made the news of her death in 1997 all the more tragic.

After being tragically killed in a car accident in Paris, Diana's death shook the entire world...


And alongside the millions of mourners worldwide, the young William and Harry were forced to grieve the loss of their mom in front of a global audience.

​We can't imagine how difficult this must have been for the boys...


But nevertheless, they both went on to grow into well-rounded young men who carried on their mom's legacy and humble values.

Prince William is, of course, the future king of England...


And his wife, Kate Middleton, will be by his side.

The pair have 3 children together...

Prince George (who is third in line to the throne), Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis... and they make for the cutest family, we must say!

And as for Prince Harry?


Well, we all know his story, don't we!

Harry married former actress Meghan Markle in 2018...


Which didn't only just make royal history with Meghan being a woman of color, but it also broke down traditional royal values due to the fact Meghan was a divorced American woman.

The couple welcomed their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, in 2019...

And they're currently expecting their second child while living in Los Angeles following their dramatic departure from the royal family last year.

Harry and Meghan have been dominating global headlines in the last few months...


And their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired last week dished a lot of dirt on the British monarchy, including accusations of racism and the refusal to help Meghan when she was feeling suicidal.

The heat has certainly been turned up on the senior members of the royal family...

And the hashtag #AbolishTheMonarchy soon started trending on Twitter.

Things haven't been looking good.

But we feel it's time to focus on another part of the royal family entirely...


And that's William and Harry's so-called "secret sister."

Yep, the princes actually have a secret sister that nobody knows about!


Laura Lopes, who is the daughter of Prince Charles' second wife Camilla, has reemerged into the lives of William and Harry in the last few years to put aside past difficulties and finally strengthen their family ties since she became a part of the family in 2005.

Up until now, Laura, a mother of 3, has lived away from the spotlight and hasn't been close to her relatives...


But Harry and William have found a new opportunity to rebuild the relationship with Laura.

"When their father married Camilla, Harry and William really tried to bond with Laura, but it was difficult. There was a lot of tension between the 3 of them because of Camilla and Charles' affair for all those years," a source close to the family said.

"So, while Harry and Wills wanted to be close to their new sister, it was difficult in those early years."


And according to the source, Diana's desire for a daughter also encouraged the boys' enthusiasm over their new stepsister.

"William and Harry grew up knowing how much their mom wanted a daughter and would've loved to have had another baby – hopefully a little girl. So they always wanted a sister."

William and Harry are honoring their mother by building a relationship with their stepsister.


"The brothers are committed to having a closer relationship with Laura. They want her to become a close auntie to George, Charlotte, Louis, and Archie."

Unlike her step-siblings, Laura, whose biological brother is well-known food critic Tom Parker Bowles, has only ever attended a handful of official royal events.


She's never publicly discussed her mother's relationship with the future King of England, but according to brother Tom, the pair found it tough when the affair was made public.

"The paparazzi used to follow us everywhere and lurk around like spooks. We used to keep binoculars in my mother's bathroom and one of us would look out every morning to see how many paparazzi were hiding in the bushes."

He then revealed how he and his sister have always felt like outsiders.


"We are not part of the royal family, because we're commoners, straight out commoners."

So there you have it!


We hope William and Harry can rebuild their bridges with their step-siblings soon.
