A reunion under high tension. Months after leaving the ranks of the British royal family to settle in the United States, Prince Harry has reunited with his loved ones, united in mourning. On the sidelines of the funeral of Prince Philip, the husband of Meghan Markle wanted to meet with his family, especially with his father and his brother, particularly touched and upset by his departure. And if the Duke of Sussex has succeeded in resuming dialogue with Princes Charles and William, the road to reconciliation still seems very long. “The discussions after Prince Philip’s funeral were a start, but they were clearly very tense and were just an opening move,” a Crown expert told The Sun.
According to Phil Dampier, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle “have everything they want to be happy” away from the royal family and should no longer harbor animosity towards members of the Crown. “It is unnecessary and counterproductive to wage a war with Harry’s blood family,” he continued, assuring that it was time for the couple to move on for good. In the rest of his interview, the royal expert was particularly vindictive about the Sussexes, especially because of their confession interview with Oprah Winfrey. “They should go on with their lives, stop pretending to be the victims and stop playing on their royal relations by divulging stories while posing as defenders of privacy,” he annoyed.
Harry and William, “a good start” but …
The hatchet is therefore not always buried between Prince Harry and his family. Yet the funeral of Prince Philip seemed to have brought them closer, even if the husband of Meghan Markle was not warmly welcomed on his arrival. While they marched a good distance from each other, the two brothers were seen chatting after the ceremony. An astonishing image, when we know that their relations are icy. But if this is “a good start”, as a relative of the royal family confided, it does not bode well for a better agreement in the long term. “It was beautiful to watch, but this whole argument is so deep that I don’t think there is a quick fix, so this relative told People. Knowing the family, it can heal a little, then can step back a bit. “
