Prince Harry and Prince William are unlikely to repair their fractured relationship before seeing each other at the historic coronation of King Charles III on May 6, a royal insider revealed.
The brothers are not believed to have spoken since the bombshell release of Harry’s memoir Spare in January, which included several personal and embarrassing revelations about William and his wife Kate, the Princess of Wales.
In Spare, Harry mentioned William’s “alarming baldness” and accused the heir to the throne of physically attacking him during an argument about Harry’s wife Meghan Markle.
Despite returning to London last month for the first time since Spare was released for a legal hearing against a British tabloid newspaper, Harry did not visit his father or brother.
Instead, Harry took to the witness stand and doubled down on criticisms of the royal family and accused family members of withholding information from each other about phone hacking by the tabloids.
Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine, told The Sun newspaper that arranging a meeting between the Sussexes and the royal family is challenging due to their busy schedules.
“They all have really tight schedules but it would be nice to stick around and be friendly,” she said.
Although Harry is not believed to have spoken to William, the Duke of Sussex has somewhat broken the ice with his father King Charles, which Ms Seward believes is a positive sign for the coronation.
“I’m glad he has spoken to his father, which has eased the path to rapprochement. Charles will welcome his son,” she said.
“I think his relationship with William is for another time.”
Last week, Buckingham Palace confirmed Harry would attend the coronation ceremonies which ended months of speculation about whether the Sussexes would snub the event.
“Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that the Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on 6th May,“ they said in a statement.
Prince Harry will travel to London to attend the King’s coronation solo without his wife Meghan Markle or the couple’s children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
Instead, the rest of the Sussex clan will remain in California to celebrate Archie’s fourth birthday, which coincidentally also falls on May 6.
A source close to the couple has speculated that Harry may dash out after the ceremonies at Westminster Abbey and fly back to Santa Barbara to celebrate his son’s birthday.
“Harry’s going to make every effort to get back in time for Archie’s birthday,” a source told Page Six on Sunday.
