‘It’s impossible!’ Queen and Prince Charles struggling to contain ‘poisonous’ Sussex rift

244

THE Queen and Prince Charles have struggled to contain the rift between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal Family, royal biographer Tom Bower has claimed.

“Especially with Harry’s memoir about to come out.

“But ever since Meghan left Britain and then did the Oprah Winfrey it has been really poisonous.”

The Sussexes flew back to the UK for a brief last month to join celebrations marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee but the visit failed to produce a wider reconciliation.

The couple’s absence from the closing pageant outside Buckingham Palace was “telling” according to royal expert Victoria Arbiter, who believes an opportunity to heal the ongoing rift between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal Family may have been missed.

Ms Arbiter told Sunrise: “I think what is quite telling is the fact that Harry and Megan weren’t at the concert at the Palace on Saturday night.

“They weren’t at the pageant, and that speaks to there perhaps being an ongoing frostiness.

“This was not the weekend in which there was going to be a lot of time for this family to come together and talk behind the scenes.

“This family needs that private time behind the scenes, but the schedule was just incredibly intense.”

She added: “So I think some people were hoping that they might stay on a couple of days in order to have some private bonding time with a family and opportunity perhaps to talk through their difficulties.

“But Harry and Megan jetted off for California even before the pageant had started on Sundays.

“So I think yes, there is ongoing tension, but in order for this to be resolved, all parties are going to want to have to talk and perhaps they’re not ready yet.”

Far across the aisle from the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Harry and Meghan sat in the second row, behind the Wessex family and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

Working royals filled the front-row chairs, meaning there was no place there for Harry and Meghan in the prime positions.

They no longer use their HRH styles and the event was their first public appearance alongside the Windsors since they stepped down as senior royals two years ago amid the Megxit storm.
