Two royal commentators speculated that the Royal Family were playing a “waiting game” instead of rebuilding their relationship with Prince Harry, which has been strained since his dramatic departure in 2020. The hosts of Royally Us said the royals “might be nervous” to reconcile with the Duke, incase their private conversations were then retold to the press. Prince Harry has openly criticised his family on multiple occasions since stepping down from the British monarchy. 

Royal expert Molly Mulshine told the Royally Us podcast: “The rest of the royals might be nervous that whatever they say might be reported in the news and that must make it even harder to get past it all.

“Maybe they’re just playing a waiting game until they can all hang out again and just never talk about any of this stuff.

“There doesn’t really seem to be many other options.

Co-host Christina Garibaldi continued: “Jumping off of that, now we have Harry’s book deals and who knows what he’s going to say in that, so I would feel the same way.

“I don’t know if I’d be able to trust them and be able to want to be on good terms with somebody who may turn around and tell all my family secrets.” 

Rumours of a rift between the Duke of Sussex and the Royal Family began to emerge in the months leading up to the couple’s Megxit announcement. 

During their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry and Meghan shared intimate details about the breakdown of their relationship with the royals and with Buckingham Palace. 

Accusations included the Palace refusing to correct damaging tabloid articles about the couple, the Royal Family ignoring Meghan’s mental health and an unnamed royal making an allegedly racist remark about their unborn son’s skin tone. 

Prince Harry also revealed that his father had “stopped taking my calls” and that their son was denied both a title and security. 

Whilst the couple claimed the Royal Family had been welcoming of Meghan at first, they said the relationship had cooled following the success of their South Pacific tour in 2018. 

As an example of the criticism she had received within the British press, Meghan revealed that Kate had made her cry in the lead up to the royal wedding, in a dispute over flower girl dresses. This story had been inaccurately reported at the time. 

Meanwhile, Harry said he felt “really let down” by Prince Charles, and characterised his relationship with William as “space”.

The interview caused a PR crisis for Buckingham Palace, who later released a statement to say that although “recollections may vary”, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remained “much-loved” members of the family. 

Prince Harry has continued to criticise his royal relatives in subsequent interviews, including during an appearance on Dax Shephard’s Armchair Expert podcast.

During the informal conversation, he compared life within the Royal Family to mixture of “being in a zoo” and “being in The Truman Show”. 

He has also announced the publication of his “wholly truthful” memoir, which is expected to cover his childhood and life as a working royal. The memoir, which is being published through Penguin Random House, is due to his bookshelves in 2022.
