Royal Family LIVE: Prince Harry ‘ready to forgive’ | Royal | News

Prince Harry is ready to reconcile with the Royal Family but King Charles and Prince William appear to be resisting efforts, a leading royal commentator has claimed. Relations between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, have been strained since the pair stepped back from royal duties and went on to make a series of allegations against the Firm in their Netflix docu-series, Harry’s memoir Spare and in TV interviews.

Asked who is hampering efforts at reconciliation between the Duke of Sussex and the Windsors, the BBC’s former royal correspondent Jennie Bond told Times Radio it doesn’t appear to be coming from Harry.

She said: “Early on it was Harry, who was demanding an apology. There was going to be no meeting of minds or meeting in reality until there was an apology for the affronts he thought had been made to his wife. But now I think the tables have turned somewhat. Messages coming from Harry’s side are that he’s ready at least to forgive and that he loves his family. He’s said that quite publicly. He wants to see more of them.

“But it is Charles and William who seem to be resisting reconciliation at this point so I think it was first one, then the other.”

Quizzed on whether that chimed with what is known about William’s character, Ms Bond said once the Prince of Wales has set his mind on something it would be very hard to dissuade him.

She added that as the years go by she hoped there would be a reconciliation, saying time can be a healer, but can also lead to people feeling entrenched in their positions.

The comments came after Harry visited London for the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games but saw neither his brother nor his father.
