King Charles and Prince Harry’s relationship was at rock bottom following the many allegations made in Harry’s book, Spare. Despite that, the Duke was invited to attend his father’s coronation in May. However, he was not invited to appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony with the rest of the royals. It showed the strict line between what a royal and a non-working-royal were allowed to do – and the question on everyone’s lips is whether the rift will ever end.
But now, it seems like Harry and Charles are trying to come to an understanding. Reports of peace talks have surrounded the royals over the past few days, and it appears that Charles and his son wish to bury the hatchet. Although Meghan won’t attend, King Charles has one strict demand before the two sit at the negotiation table.
Harry has not met his father since the coronation on May 6. He arrived in London on the day of the coronation, with reports insisting his trip to the UK would be brief. And that certainly was the case.
Prince Harry sat a couple of rows behind his royal family members, and as the ceremony at Westminster Abbey ended, the Duke left and headed straight back to the US via Heathrow. Harry was determined not to miss his son Archie’s birthday, as it was on the same day as the coronation.
While he didn’t stay for lunch with his royal family members, it was reported that several of them were happy that he didn’t join them. The relationship with several of them, including his brother, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, is the worst it’s ever been. Not strange, considering what Harry accused them of in his book, Spare, where he criticized several of his family members, including Prince William, of initiating a physical confrontation.
Reports suggest that there is no chance” for Harry to meet with William over ‘peace talks,’ as the future king refuses to meet his younger brother.
“He feels utterly betrayed by what Harry wrote about him in the book and said about him on Netflix,” a friend of William’s told the Daily Beast.
