A new report says peace talks between Prince Harry and the royal family could take place before King Charles’s coronation in May.
Sources close to the royal family have told The Sunday Times that “the only way forward” is for the exiled prince and his wife Meghan Markle to kiss and reconcile with Harry’s estranged relatives before Charles’s official coronation on May 6.
The couple, who live in California with their two children after leaving royal life infamously in 2020, are expected to attend the King’s Big Day at Westminster Abbey.
“It will require flexibility on all sides, but it can be done. It is salvageable,” said a source close to the King familiar with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“She needs Harry here, in the room with the King and the Prince of Wales and a couple of other family members.”
The source continued, “Both sides need to put up their hands and admit we didn’t get everything right, we got a lot wrong, and we need to tell him, ‘We understand the pain you’ve been through.’ The King can do that.”
The source also pointed out that Harry needs to swallow his pride and admit he made a mistake.
“Not everyone here behaved well, but Harry had to be able to sit down and say, ‘We didn’t behave well either.’ We have to move in and get it done by April. The King needs a clear path to the coronation,” they said.
Friends of the royal family have told The Times that Harry must realize his attacks on the so-called office in his memoirs are not well received as he moves on with his new life.
“Now they should be quiet and carry on with their affairs in America,” said the friend.
“You said your article, but why are you trying to burn the whole house down?” they asked.
Last week, Harry told Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes” that he was “looking forward” to reconciling with his brother and the royals, and having a “private” and “constructive” conversation with them in the future.
“Meghan and I have continued to say we will publicly apologize for any wrongdoing,” Harry said. “But every time we ask that question, no one tells us the details or anything.”
He continued, “I’m really looking forward to getting that family element back.” “I am looking forward to having a relationship with my brother. I am looking forward to having a relationship with my parents and other members of my family.”
More bluntly, Harry demanded that his family “clean up” about their treatment of his wife in an interview with The Telegraph this week.
“You know what you did, and now I know why you did it. You got caught, so just be clean,” he said.
In “Spear,” Harry shockingly claims that he was only raised as “spare parts” for his older brother, who is two years his senior and heir to the throne. He also called William a bully, accusing him of physically attacking him and pointing a finger in Meghan’s face.
Harry said on “60 Minutes” that the two had not communicated with each other “for some time.”
Appearing on “Good Morning America” last week, Harry admitted he “without a doubt” was “sure” he bore at least some responsibility for the breakdown of his relationship with his brother.
“Silence now is the right thing to do, but it’s not going away,” a close friend of the brothers told The Times.
“This has to be sorted out and neutralized so that when William is in the highest office his brother still isn’t sniping from the sidelines. I honestly don’t think that’s the end of things. Harry simply can’t do without his brother.”
