King Charles believes he can mend fractured Harry and Meghan relationship after seeing flickers of hope

King Charles is said to be optimistic that the relationship between the Royals and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is repairable.

After stepping down from royal duties two years ago and relocating to the US, Prince Harry, 38, and Meghan Markle, 41, have had a some-what estranged relationship with the royals – in particular between Harry and his brother Prince William.

However, following the pair’s trip to the UK and them coming together as one with the rest of the family in the wake of Her Majesty the Queen’s death, it’s said there were “flickers of hope” that their relationship is salvageable.

“It remains the case that the King loves both of his children,” a source told The Telegraph.

“Over the last 16 days or so, there were tremendous flickers of hope. In terms of the future, there is hope of a cause for unity.”

It comes after King Charles III appeared to offer an olive branch to his estranged son in his first ever public address as monarch.

In the televised address to the nation, he paid tribute to his wife Camilla, his son and now heir to the throne Prince William, and to his youngest child, Prince Harry.

During his speech King Charles said: “I want to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas.”

The extension of an olive branch to his son marks the beginning of a new era, and once again shows King Charles' commitment to reconciling with his son, in the wake of their family tragedy.

Following this, Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told us that the monarch is “determined” to fix the rift.

“King Charles has indicated that he is determined to heal the rift between his sons,” he told OK!.


"The speech was a very carefully considered and perfectly executed olive branch from a person who was, frankly, not only burying his mother but he was also burying Prince Charles.

"The father that Harry knew almost doesn't exist anymore, he has changed.”

"Charles needs to solve this dreadful and harmful row between his sons," Duncan continued.

"There's only so much you can do, but I think publicly declaring his love for Harry and Meghan during a speech where he barely mentioned a soul was a deliberate and strategic attempt by The King to say, 'Right, enough is enough, this is how much I still love you, everything has changed’. That was a message to Harry."
