It was undoubtedly one of the interview’s most astonishing disclosures.
“That was relayed to me from Harry. Those were conversations that family had with him,” Meghan said. She declined to reveal who was involved in those conversations, saying, “that would be very damaging to them.”
For her part, Queen Elizabeth confirmed in a statement that the Royal Family would address allegations of racism within Buckingham Palace.’
“The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” the Queen said.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
It goes without saying that the Oprah interview did a lot of harm to Harry’s relationship with his family, especially with his brother Prince William and his father, now-King Charles.
Since then, relations between the parties have remained cold.
Indeed, according to sources, when Harry arrived at Balmoral on the day of the Queen’s dying, his position as an outsider was only further cemented. He reportedly did not receive an invitation to the Thursday night meal with King Charles and Prince William and instead joined the rest of the family.
But according to the same reports, there is now some optimism that Harry can heal relations with his father and brother.
It has long been rumored that Harry could be able to rejoin the royal family in the case of his grandmother’s passing. It is unclear exactly what kind of role Charles would play going ahead, but he is certain to be aware of the strength of a monarchy free from division, conflict, and in-fighting.
In any case, according to accounts, Harry offered an olive branch to King Charles while honoring his late grandmother.
Despite the fact that Harry and Charles haven’t spoken to one another in a while—some stories even imply that they haven’t spoken at all—it seems like efforts are being made to fix their relationship.
Harry made a pledge to honor his father in a statement posted on the website of the Archewell Foundation, which he and Meghan formed.
“And as it comes to first encounters, we now respect my father in his new capacity as King Charles III,” the message said.
Harry and Meghan have made it clear that they will remain in the UK until after the burial, with preparations for it being well under way.
This might imply that they decide to fly their two kids, Archie and Lilibet, and their maternal grandma Doria Ragland, across the Atlantic.
“The family has already spent more than a week apart, and the state funeral isn’t for another eight days. Meghan and Harry will stick around until the end of the royal mourning period, which ends seven days after the service.”
While Harry is in the UK, the once-unbreakable relationship between the two princes may be healed. According to reports, William and Kate invited Harry and Meghan to greet well-wishers and observe floral tributes left outside Buckingham Palace in remembrance of the Queen.
William is thought to have intended to put any hostilities to rest and present a unified front with his younger brother.
The goal is that the boys may finally bury any leftover bitterness after seeing Princess Diana’s sons strolling side by side once more.
I’m not sure how you feel about it, but I hope that Prince Harry can get back with his family and leave the past behind.
Given that, what do you foresee happening? Should Harry beg his family’s forgiveness, and vice versa? Please share your opinions in the space provided below.
