Since the departure of Prince Harry from the United Kingdom and his interview with Oprah Winfrey last March, nothing goes more between the Duke of Sussex and Prince Charles. However, despite their differences, father and son would still be in contact.
Princes Charles and Harry on the road to reconciliation? Since the departure of the Duke of Sussex for California, relations between the father and his son are extremely tense. But according to US Weekly this Friday, December 3, the Prince of Wales and his younger son would have resumed contact: Charles and Harry communicate, said a source to our confreres before specifying: There is still a lot of work to do before their relationship is rebuilt.
It all started in January 2020. Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle indicated that they no longer wished to play a leading role in the British monarchical institution. The couple then left the United Kingdom and moved to Canada and then to the United States. A decision that deeply affected Prince Charles. Tensions were exacerbated last March, an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey on the American channel CBS. During this interview, Prince Harry blamed his father for cutting him off and stopped taking [his] calls. The couple also accused one member of the royal family of racism, without disclosing the identity of the person targeted.
In his book Brother and Wives, Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan, Christopher Anderson assured that Prince Charles made comments about the skin color of his grandson Archie. Comments that they would have made on the day of the announcement of the engagement of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, November 27, 2017. Accusations denied by Buckingham Palace.
In the midst of family drama, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their second child last June, little Lilibet. Although the Duke of Sussex returned to the UK in April, for the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip, and then in July, for the unveiling of the statue of Princess Diana, neither his wife nor his children accompanied him. According to royal expert Nick Bullen, the Prince of Wales really wants to meet his granddaughter and is incredibly sad about everything that has happened.
