Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s break from the Royal Family has been a hard transition for the Firm to make. But speaking on the Royal Round Up, royal correspondent Richard Palmer discussed with host Pandora Forsyth how Prince William and King Charles have found more time to bond amid Harry’s absence.
Mr Palmer told Royal Roundup Prince William and King Charles’ growing closeness was “essentially a product of the falling out with Harry”.
He said: “Up until that point it was Harry, who was closer to Charles than William was.
“William and Kate, and their kids had quite a long spell where they very rarely saw Charles and Camilla at Highgrove or anywhere else for that matter.
“It was only after makes Megxit that Prince William and Prince Charles, as he was, really sort of started speaking and seeing each other much, much more regularly again.”
Mr Palmer also discussed the fallout from the release of the final episodes of Harry and Meghan’s Netflix series.
On how Harry has handled the media, he said: “Because Harry was so invested in her, he went completely over the top in reaction to some of the media coverage at the very start of their relationship.
“Some of it was objectionable, let’s be honest about that, but he went over the top and fueled, or created a really toxic situation that has defined them.”
Mr Palmer added: “Later when they announced their engagement, everyone in the press, everyone in the public, was delighted for them.

“But that reaction sowed the seeds for the problems we have seen later on.”
In the latest episode to drop Prince Harry recalled a shouting match with his brother during a tense meeting in Sandringham over the Sussexes’ royal plans.
Prince Harry says in episode 5 of the Netflix documentary that William “shouted” at him during the family sit down.
He says: “It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me and my father say things that simply weren’t true. And my grandmother, you know, quietly sit there and sort of take it all in.”

The same episode sees Harry claim the meeting had been timetabled to exclude Meghan who had left the UK to look after baby Archie, so he had to attend alone.
Harry says: “I went in with the same proposal we had already made publicly.
“But once I got there, I was given five options. One being all in, no change. Five being, all out.
“I chose option three in the meeting. Half in, half out. Have our own jobs, but also work in support of the Queen.”
