The King was reported to have asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to help broker peace with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ahead of his coronation.
“My understanding is that there’s been no real contact whatsoever so I don’t know where a lot of people are getting it from.
“I’m told that it’s not the case. The last thing they’ll want to be doing is having all sorts of reconciliation talks in the middle of a coronation.”
The royal commentator continued: “The world doesn’t revolve around Meghan and Harry even if they think it does.

King’s Guard yells at tourist after she tries to grab reins from his horse
A video posted on TikTok went viral after a tourist seemed to anger a King’s Guard as she grabbed at his horse’s reins while posing for a photograph. She was seen approaching the soldier and yanking at the animal’s reins, prompting a furious reaction from the guardsman.
“They’re focused on state visits to Germany and France and then the coronation.”
And he told Newsweek: “They’re not worried too much about Archie’s birthday or how Harry feels. If it happens, it will happen at a quiet time when trust has been rebuilt.”
But insiders close to the King have said Charles is keen to put the Sussex drama to bed, and is keen for a reconciliation to take place ahead of the Coronation to avoid his son overshadowing the historic event.
During his explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, the Duke of Sussex claimed his father had stopped taking his calls after he and Meghan Markle told the family they planned to take a step back from royal duty.
Harry said he had informed the late Queen about their idea while they were in Canada on a six-week duty break, also informing the then-Prince Charles of the plan.

The Duke told Oprah: “When we were in Canada, I had three conversations with my grandmother and two conversations with my father before he stopped taking my calls.”
He then said Charles asked him to put the strategy in writing and then stopped having direct conversations with him until after this departure.
Prince Harry has repeatedly claimed to want his relationship with both the King and Prince William back despite levelling extensive criticism against them both.
During an interview with ITV last month to promote his memoir Spare, the Duke insisted he wanted to reconcile with his family while at the same time accusing them of vilifying him and Meghan Markle.

Harry added: “I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back.”
Despite the repeated attacks against them, the Royal Family has so far maintained a united front in refusing to comment on any of Harry and Meghan’s claims.
The King is expected to invite the couple to his coronation on May 6 but it remains unclear whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would ultimately accept.
Harry and Meghan, however, did previously return to the UK to be part of major family events so commentators are positive about the couple opting to attend.
