In case you were wondering if King Charles and Prince William have reached out to Prince Harry amid the release of his bombshell-filled memoir, nope. Not so much. According to a source who spoke to The Sun, “there [have] been no conversations or contact,” including via text, email, or phone.
The outlet also noted that recent claims of a “reconciliation summit” ahead of King Charles’s coronation were “dismissed.” Said claims came from The Times, which spoke to a royal source who “has the King’s ear” and “knows the Sussexes well,” who said a meeting could happen in the “coming months.”
“It’s going to take flexibility on all sides, but it can be done, it’s fixable,” the insider alleged. “It needs Harry over here, in the room with the King and Prince of Wales, a couple of other family members, some of ‘his people’ he trusts who always had his back, so he doesn’t think he’s being ambushed. Someone like Elf [Ed Lane Fox, Harry’s former private secretary] and Christopher [Lord Geidt, the late Queen’s former private secretary who advised the Sussexes]. Both sides need to hold their hands up and admit we didn’t get everything right and we got a lot wrong, and we have to say to him, ‘We understand the pain you’ve been through.’ The King can do it.”
There’s some debate, however, about whether William can do it—although according to insiders, “he is loyal to the throne and understands what needs to be done for the country. Not everyone here behaved well, but Harry’s got to be able to sit down and say, ‘We didn’t behave well either.’ That takes a lot of academic flexibility, which Harry isn’t great at.”
When it comes to timing, The Times’ source says, “We’ve got to move on it and get it done by April. Then we need to get the wives in. The King needs a clear run for the coronation.”
So…guess we’ll see what happens?
