KEY POINTS

  • Prince Harry has not spoken privately with either Prince Charles or Prince William, a report says
  • They reportedly fear that Prince Harry's camp would leak a "twisted" version of their conversation if there were no witnesses
  • Prince Harry reportedly had a three-way "clear-the-air talk" with Charles and William at Frogmore Cottage

Prince Harry will be flying home to wife Meghan Markle and son Archie without having heart-to-heart conversations with either Prince Charles or Prince William due to their lack of trust in the Duke of Sussex, a report has claimed.

Prince Harry had a seemingly friendly reunion with his older brother at their grandfather Prince Philip's funeral at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle Saturday. But despite being due to return to California this week, he has not spoken privately to either the Prince of Wales or Duke of Cambridge following his and Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey last month, Page Six reported, citing unnamed sources.

The "one-on-one" chats didn't happen because neither his father nor brother trust him enough to speak with him alone, the insiders claimed. However, the sources said they had a three-way "clear-the-air talk" at Prince Harry's U.K. home, Frogmore Cottage, following the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral.

Prince Charles and Prince William would only agree to speak with Prince Harry if there were others present in the room, the report added. According to the outlet's sources, the two reportedly feared that Prince Harry's camp would leak a "twisted" version of their conversation to the media.

The concern allegedly came after Gayle King, a friend of the Duchess of Sussex, leaked Prince Harry's conversation with his father and brother. Following his and Markle's tell-all with Winfrey, King reported that Prince William and Prince Charles reached out to Prince Harry after but that their discussions were "not productive."

"Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father, too," King said on "CBS This Morning" in March. "The word I was given was those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation."

Following King’s revelation, Vanity Fair quoted an unnamed source as saying that Prince William was no longer comfortable talking to his younger brother over the phone for fear that their private conversation would leak to the press. There’s a lack of trust on both sides, which makes it hard for them to move forward, the insider added.

Following Prince Philip's service Saturday, Prince Harry was spotted exiting the chapel with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, talking to them as they walked. According to body language expert Judi James, the brothers appeared to have had a “genuine moment of unity.” Another expert said they were showing signs of reconciliation.

However, Prince William has not fully forgiven his younger brother for his interview with Winfrey, Vanity Fair reported, citing an unnamed source. Prince William and the other members of the royal family have “very strong feelings” about what Prince Harry and Markle revealed and claimed during the tell-all, with many of the royals still being cold toward the Duke of Sussex.
