KEY POINTS

  • Princess Diana‘s former voice coach Stewart Pearce gave more insight into Prince Harry and Prince Charles' strained relationship
  • He said Charles is known for "distancing himself" from emotionally heightened situations
  • He shared he is hopeful that the arrival of Harry and Meghan Markle's baby girl will lead to a reconciliation with the royal family

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby girl may be the key to a reconciliation between the Duke of Sussex and his father Prince Charles, according to Princess Diana's former voice coach.

Prince Harry and Markle welcomed their second child, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, Friday. Many are hopeful that the newest addition to the royal family will help mend the divide between the Sussexes and the rest of the royals, including Stewart Pearce, who recently released his book "Diana The Voice of Change: Revelations About Diana's Life Principles."

"Babies always bring inordinate love, joy and hope and so yes," he told Us Weekly of Lilibet's arrival.

Princess Diana's former voice coach also gave more insight into Prince Harry's strained relationship with his father.

"As far as Meghan and Harry were concerned, they were ‘troubled’ by the lack of support received from the ‘men in grey suits,’ namely the household staff, and then the unfortunate lapse of contact with his father [Prince Charles]," Pearce

"Charles is well known for distancing himself from emotional heightened situations as he is a very caring, sensitive man, and therefore chooses to wait to let strong feelings settle down before responding.," he added.

During his and Markle's March interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry claimed that Prince Charles stopped taking his calls after they announced their plans to quit royal duties last year.

"I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar, he knows what pain feels like … Archie is his grandson," the duke shared. "I will always love him. There’s a lot of hurt that’s happened. I will continue to make it one of my priorities to heal that relationship."

The Prince of Wales reportedly took issue with Prince Harry discussing their family's private matters during interviews.

"Charles does not agree with Harry trashing his whole family in public," Us Weekly quoted an unnamed source as saying. "Charles thinks these matters could have easily been addressed in private."

Meanwhile, royal biographer Katie Nicholl, author of "Harry: Life, Loss, and Love," shared Pearce's views when it comes to baby Lili's potential role in unifying the members of the royal family. 

"Well I think, everyone thought that this little baby is going to be a rift healer because this family division has really going on for a very long time now," Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight.

She continued, "For years, many, many months since Charles, the Queen, and the Cambridges have seen Archie in the flesh and we know that there has been really difficulties between Harry and William, difficulties between Harry and his father, and I think, it's everyone's hope that this baby will be a peace offering in many ways and that she will help to bring this divided family back together."
