Charles III ‘thinks he can fix rift with Harry and Meghan’ after Queen’s funeral

King Charles III believes he can salvage his relationship with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, according to a Palace insider.

A chat with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the Queen's funeral on September 19 is said to have given the new monarch reason to believe he can patch up their differences with love.

A source claims a conversation between Charles and his younger son and wife showed "tremendous flickers of hope" for repairing a rift which is feared to get worse with Harry's memoir release.

The insider told The Telegraph: "It remains the case that the King loves both of his children.

"Over the last 16 days or so, there were tremendous flickers of hope. In terms of the future, there is hope of a cause for unity."

The Firm hasn't looked the same since Harry and Meghan's so-called Megxit to Montecito, California, in 2020 and reports of dynamics within the Royal Family since have hardly been positive.

Comments the couple have made in various interviews including their chat with US TV host Oprah Winfrey last year have done little to build bridges with Harry's family.

Charles' first address to the nation as King, however, has been interpreted as a sign he wants to get past the fall-out with an "olive branch" to the couple.

More cynical viewers dismissed the monarch's comments as a PR bid for unity just hours after his mother's death.

The latest work from royal expert Katie Nicholl, The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown, said the Queen had been "exhausted" by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to step back as senior royals and move to the USA.

The author claims an anonymous friend of the Queen had said: “She was very hurt and told me, ‘I don’t know, I don’t care, and I don’t want to think about it anymore’”.

Another extract on Harry and Meghan from the same book, expected to be released on October 6, says: "They wanted to find a compromise whereby they could live part of the year abroad but carry out some royal duties at home. No such compromise was found.

"Crucially, it was the Queen who took the view that unless the couple were prepared to abide by the restrictions that applied to working members of the Royal Family, they could not be allowed to carry out official duties."
