BBC’s Nicholas Witchell hints at Harry and Charles ‘reconciliation’

Prince Harry ‘struggled being full time royal’ says expert

Last year, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry released a tell-all Netflix series addressing criticism of the Royal Family and the couple’s reasons for leaving to start a new life in the US. On top of this, the Duke of Sussex published a revealing biography, Spare, in January. However, it’s been insinuated that ahead of the King’s coronation, the father and son have reconciled.

Speaking on Wednesday’s BBC News, royal editor Nicholas Witchell addressed their reportedly troubled relationship.

He remarked: “He [Prince Harry] hasn’t seen his father since the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and an awful lot has happened since then, not least the publicity of his book and the bad feeling that has undoubtedly caused within the Royal Family toward him.

“A strong sense of betrayal towards Harry but at this moment it’s a moment of some reconciliation he will be there to see his father crowned in Westminster Abbey on May 6 as Charles III.”

The statement indicates the two will be working through the goings-on of the past couple of years, which has seen Prince Harry making several critical remarks about the King as well as Prince William and other royal members.


Preparations for the King’s May 6 coronation are currently in full swing, but the Royal Family had been left in suspense about whether or not the Sussexes would be attending the major event.

It was finally announced on Wednesday that Prince Harry will be travelling to the UK to attend, but Meghan will stay in California with their two young children, Prince Archie Harrison and Princess Lilibet Diana.

The Palace said in a statement: “Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that the Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on 6th May.

“The Duchess of Sussex will remain in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”

Prince Harry made headlines earlier this year due to the January release of his shocking memoir, Spare.

One controversial recollection in Spare was that of a”physical assault” by Prince William on Harry.

Detailing an alleged incident that took place in 2019, Harry explained his brother had called Meghan “rude”, “difficult” and “abrasive”.

Harry alleged the argument became more heated before William “grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and … knocked me to the floor”.

He also claimed the altercation left him with a visible injury on his back due to him falling onto a dog’s bowl and breaking it.

Spare was released following the late Queen’s funeral, so the upcoming royal landmark will be the first time the King and Prince Harry have seen each other since the revelations were made public.

The Netflix documentary also caused heavy controversy regarding the Duke of Sussex’s sharing of behind-the-scene royal details, and the couple’s criticism of their time as royals.

However, it seems the King is set to reunite with his son when the celebrations begin next month.
