The funeral of Prince Philip came with good tidings for Prince Harry and his father Prince Charles as it served as a stepping stone towards their reconciliation.
Sources from the royal family indicate that the two even plan to spend some quality time together and reconnect in the coming days.
Prince Harry and his family have been at loggerheads since January 2020 when he and his wife Meghan Markle stepped down from royal duties.
“There has been talk that Charles will walk around Windsor with Harry to look at some of the tributes and spend some time together,” a source revealed to Mail Online.
Harry will not remain at the royal castle for long as he is expected to head back to Los Angeles to be with his pregnant wife.
The reconnection comes a month after Harry revealed that after a series of conversations with his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and his father, the latter stopped picking my calls.
Harry and Charles have not had a physical meeting since March last year when he together with Markle left for Canada.
"I will always love him, but there’s a lot of hurt that has happened. And I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship,” Harry said during his interview with Oprah Winfrey.
One of the issues that came out during the interview was that the royal family was concerned about the skin color of Harry's son, Archie.
Although the couple did not reveal the actual member of the family who was behind the racist sentiments, there widespread speculation that it was Charles.
Previously, Briefly News reported Meghan Markle did not attend Prince Philip's funeral because she's too far along in her pregnancy and did not want to travel so far.
