- Prince Harry and Prince William have reportedly ended their royal feud thanks to secret peace talks.
- Prince Harry's relationship with Prince Charles is more complicated, and there's a lack of trust.
You know what would be great? If we could get through 2020 without ever hearing the words "royal rift" again! And it looks like there might be a light at the end of this dramatic tunnel, because The Sun is reporting that Prince Harry and Prince William are finally ready to mend fences after months of royal tension.
Per The Sun's royal reporter Dan Wootton, William and Harry realized it was "now or never" and managed to repair their rift thanks to "secret peace talks" with the help of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
"William and Harry have spent time together privately away from the official Sandringham Summit working on their relationship and discussing their future," a source said. "It has been ground-breaking in terms of saving their bond as brothers and has been totally driven by them. But Kate and Meghan, who was in Canada, did join in with some of the talks on more than one occasion—which is another sign of a real thaw in their relationship. Things are better."
The source added that the brothers “decided to cut out all the toxic people stirring around them to deal with each other man-to-man as brothers. Given Harry is now permanently moving away, there was a realization if they didn’t sort things out now, they never would. Of course there have been serious differences in opinions but the family warmth is back. And they’re sad they’re going to be so far apart.”
The Sun also reports that things are slightly more complicated with Harry and Prince Charles, with a source saying there's a trust issue: “It’s fair to say that the past week has brought William and Harry back together but the relationship with Charles and Camilla is far more complicated and complex. There remains a real lack of trust there and it’s going to take some time to resolve.”
