Prince Harry recently returned from a long trip to the United Kingdom, where the royal family celebrated the late Prince Philip’s legacy.
The retired senior royal is coming off a shocking conversation with Oprah Winfrey in which he and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, leveled racist allegations towards the royal family.
According to reports, the Queen has “made it clear” that she is “united” with Charles and William after Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive Oprah chat.
Former royals accused the organisation of racism and failing to help Meghan for her mental health issues during the frank conversation.
Her Majesty was “disappointed” by the Duke of Sussex, according to MailOnline, when he and wife Meghan Markle threw the royal family under the bus. The Sussexes accused the royals of racism and refusing to help Meghan when she was suicidal.
“The Queen has made it clear to senior advisers that she is united with Charles and William, and was disappointed with aspects of Harry and Meghan’s interview.” a source told the portal.
“There is much pain and hurt on both sides, so this reconciliation will take place in baby steps. First, they need to decide on some ground rules as to how they conduct business going forward in a way that makes all parties feel safe and protected,” added the insider.
It comes amid contradictory news on the scale of any private negotiations between the Prince of Wales and his feuding sons after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral on Saturday in Windsor.
According to the Mirror’s Royal Editor Russell Myers, Harry sent his father a “deeply personal” note before the service to alleviate strains within the household.
After the ceremony, Charles hoped to see his son, but the Duke of Sussex informed him that he would not be staying.
The mourning queen marked the first birthday of her rule without her late husband, Prince Philip, 99, who died in his sleep on April 9 at Windsor Castle.
According to reports, she has offered her support to Charles and William in dealing with Harry’s dispute and the backlash from the Sussexes’ Oprah interview, which is reported to have enraged William and deeply hurt several royals.
It’s been suggested that the Queen was “not be in the mood” to hold a summit and would also delegate the Oprah interview and other topics at the center of the rift to Charles and William.
Prince William and Prince Harry have long been royal favourites. Fans all over the world adored the two brothers’ intimate friendship, and many saw them as sparkling models of what a real monarchy might look like. Stuff began to go downhill when Prince Harry and Meghan started dating.
The rivalry allegations first emerged in early 2019, when it was reported that Prince William attempted to persuade Prince Harry to “slow down” in his pursuit of Meghan Markle’s hand in marriage. According to sources, Prince Harry was dissatisfied with Prince William’s alleged disapproval, and their friendship deteriorated as a result.
Prince Harry revealed in late 2019 that he and Prince William were on different pages, claiming that they were all under “pressure.”
Outside St George’s Chapel, Harry was seen speaking with William and Kate Middleton, and the duchess then stepped away to give the two brothers some alone time as they went back to the castle’s private apartments.
Following the release of photographs and video of the incident, Kate has been dubbed a “peacemaker”
She is said to find the split “upsetting” and needs to reconcile her husband and brother-in-law.
““Being so close to her own siblings, Pippa and James, and having witnessed first hand the special bond between William and Harry, she has found the whole situation difficult and upsetting,” a source told the Telegraph.
“Her natural instinct is to try to smooth things over.”
Following his father’s burial, Charles, the Royal Family’s current patriarch, has returned to his estate in Llwynywermod, South Wales.
