Will the Royal Family reconcile with Harry and Meghan?

Since Prince Harry’s memoir, ‘Spare’, hit bookstores last month, the royal family has remained silent and kept a united front.

Since Prince Harry’s memoir, ‘Spare’, hit bookstores last month, the royal family has remained silent and kept a united front.

With King Charles III’s Royal Coronation approaching in May, the Royal Family is reportedly having intense family discussions behind closed doors on the subject of reconciliation with Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, before the event.

The Coronation is meant to be a lavish celebration to usher in the next monarch, but family rifts are somewhat overshadowing the grand occasion.

The accusations Prince Harry unleashed in his book, and the Royal secrets the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed in their Netflix docuseries have added to public scrutiny of the Royal family.

According to Royal correspondent Valentine Low, if prolonged, the estrangement between the Sussexes and the Royal Family will only get worse.

“The longer it goes on, the less hope there is for reconciliation,” Low said.

A tale of two Princes

‘Spare’, released January 10, is peppered with claims toward the Palace and its members, including memories where the elder Prince reportedly got too physically aggressive with his younger brother at times.

A Royal insider revealed what is happening in the behind-closed-door discussions being carried out within the Palace walls.

The source said that William felt fatigued as a consequence of his younger brothers’ estrangement, while recognizing that someone must bridge the divide.

“William is the one who is most upset and needs time to calm down,” the source said.

However, the 40-year-old father of three has made no movement toward reconciling with his brother, while Prince Harry maintains his position.

As Coronation Day approaches

On the general climate of the Royal Family with the big Coronation Day approaching, the insider said that the whole thing is “all so ghastly.”

“Although there is sorrow because the Queen has died, the coronation should be a joyful moment, too, because Charles will be crowned,” they explained. “But this is a massive shadow.”

According to Low, Buckingham Palace didn’t want to make matters worse by making a public statement.

“They didn’t want to fan the flames of the rift and the dispute,” Low said. “They know that anything said in a statement or a briefing would prolong it.

“They wanted it to calm down as soon as possible.”
