A reconciliation between Prince Harry and the British royal family could take place before King Charles III’s coronation in May, a report said on Saturday, following the publication of his torrid memoir “Spare”.
A source close to the king who also knows Prince Harry and his wife Meghan told The Sunday Times they thought a meeting would take place in the coming months before the coronation on May 6.
“It will take flexibility from all sides, but it can be done, it is fixable,” the newspaper quoted the source as saying in a report published on its website.
“It needs Harry here, in the room with the King and Prince of Wales, a few other relatives, some of ‘his people’ who he trusts and who have always had his back, so he doesn’t think he’s being ambushed. lured.” source added.
After months of anticipation and a general publicity blitz, Harry’s book “Spare” went on sale Tuesday, with a record 1.4 million English-language sales in the first 24 hours.
“Both sides need to hold up their hands and admit that we didn’t do everything right, and we did a lot wrong, and we need to say to him ‘we understand the pain you’ve been through’. The king can do it”‘, said the source.
While the royal family has not commented on the book, the source said Prince Harry’s older brother, heir to the throne, Prince William was “burning inside” over his brother’s infidelity.
“Not everyone here behaved well, but Harry needs 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 very good at,” the source added.
Prince Harry, who accuses his brother in the book of pushing him to the ground during an altercation in 2019, has said he would like to be reconciled with his family but needs “accountability” first.
The source said time was now of the essence.
“We have to get to work on it and have it ready before April. Then we have to bring in the women. The king needs a walk for the coronation.’
Another royal source agreed, telling the paper that Harry and Meghan – who gave up royal life in the UK for California in 2020 – should be invited ahead of the historic royal event.
If that didn’t happen, the twisting feud between the brothers would become “a circus and distraction.”
In his blockbuster autobiography, Harry complains bitterly about his treatment as the second son of Charles and the late Princess Diana.
The book also details a series of often petty grievances after becoming engaged to Meghan, who also complained that she was not supported by the royals.
Public opinion in Britain has turned against Harry in the wake of the book’s publication – amid the country’s most serious cost-of-living crisis in a generation.
A YouGov poll published daily in The Times found that only 24 per cent of people now have a positive view of the prince – up from 80 per cent a decade ago – and 68 per cent critical.
