Top members of the royal family including Prince Harry, Prince Charles, Prince William and Meghan Markle still have work to do to repair their relationship after Megxit and other fallouts, an expert says
The Sussexes, the Cambridges and King Charles III have been at a “stalemate” in talks to rebuild their relationships following Megxit and the bombshell memoir Spare, an expert has claimed.
The top royals had a much-publicised fallout with accusations flying around in Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix documentary and subsequent leaks to the media. The Sussexes have been raising their young family in California for more than three years now after stepping down as working royals, and despite trips back to the UK since then it has been reported that little progress has been made on improving relations with Buckingham Palace.
In the new book Endgame, royal writer Omid Scobie claimed Prince William and Prince Harry’s relationship is still on the rocks and ‘there’s no going back’ for the brothers who were once best friends. It shows little has changed from earlier this year, when one commentator claimed that relationships between top royals were unlikely to improve any time soon.
Camilla Tominey said in June that while some of the “frostiness” between the two parties had eased, the King is in “no hurry whatsoever to bury the hatchet”, reports the Express. She added: “The emergence of a letter written by Meghan to the King, expressing her concerns about unconscious bias in the Royal family, seems to have put paid to any imminent hope of reconciliation.”
While the Firm had begun to “come with terms” with allegations made about the royals in the Sussexes interview with Oprah Winfrey, the publication of Harry’s memoir Spare in January “took everything right back to square one”. A source claimed: “There’s a sense of high irritation about everything they’ve done.
“The Netflix documentary was viewed as largely anodyne and nothing much to worry about – it’s the book that, for the family, has really cemented the view that all Harry ever seems to want to do is air his unhappiness. There’s not a lot of trust left to allow the family to maintain a good and open relationship. How do you speak openly without it ending up in volume two?”
