Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to return to California ‘without a peace deal being struck’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are returning to Los Angeles without any peace deal being struck with King Charles and Prince William, the Duchess’ friend Gayle King has claimed.

The CBS Mornings host has been in London for the Queen’s funeral and said that the ‘turmoil’ caused by Megxit and the Sussexes interview with Oprah Winfrey has not been resolved.

Harry and William have repeatedly stood side-by-side with their father King Charles III as he mourns his mother’s death. There was also a joint engagement with Meghan and Kate – but it remains to be seen if this fragile truce will hold, especially with Harry’s memoirs due out later this year.

Ms King got to know Meghan and Harry after being introduced by Ms Winfrey and attended the Duchess’ lavish baby shower organised by Serena Williams and Amal Clooney. She is viewed as one of the couple’s main allies in the US media.

Speaking following the Queen’s funeral, outside Westminster Abbey, she said: ‘There have been efforts on both sides … to sort of make this right’.

Admitting that there had been no rapprochement despite these ‘efforts’, she added: ‘Big families always go through drama, always go through turmoil. It remains to be seen — are they going to be drawn closer together or are they going to be drawn apart? I have no idea, I have no inside information on that, but I will tell you this: It was good to see Harry standing with his family’.

Meghan and Harry stayed at Frogmore Cottage at Windsor on the evening of Monday’s funeral – but were reported to be heading back to California as soon as possible to be with Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, after two weeks away.

As the Royal Family mourns for another week, with all engagements cancelled until next Tuesday, the Sussexes have not been seen in public since Harry puffed his cheeks and Meghan stared ahead while leaving St George’s Chapel when the Queen was laid to rest.

It is not impossible, however, that they are already in their Montecito mansion. 

Gayle King has revealed that efforts have been made ‘on both sides’ to heal the rift between the Sussexes and the Royal Family – but there has been no breakthrough

Extraordinary new photos have emerged of the Royal Family waiting together at Windsor Castle as they prepared to escort the Queen to her final resting place in St George’s Chapel. 

The pictures show a family scene that is both ordinary and – given their positions, uniforms and the intensely public nature of their grief – unlike any other. 

They also offer a glimpse of the personal dynamics within the Royal Family following the much publicised breakdown of the relationship between Prince William and his brother, Harry, and the latter’s regular criticisms of the institution following Megxit.  

In the photos, a stony-faced King Charles III stands with a ceremonial sword in one hand, occasionally chatting to fellow royals including Prince Edward. 

At other moments, Edward is seen talking to his brother Prince Andrew, and Prince Harry with Peter Phillips, son of Anne, the Princess Royal, as they crossed a immaculate lawn close to St George’s Chapel. 

Harry also shares a conversation with Anne and her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Lawrence. Also present are other royals including Prince William and Lord Linley, one of Charles’ cousins. 

The week saw several rare displays of public unity between Harry and William. On September 10, the Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan, were invited to join the Prince and Princess of Wales to inspect floral tributes outside Windsor Castle, while yesterday William was seen appearing to direct the couple to their seats in St George’s Chapel.

The service in St George’s Chapel ended with the Queen being finally laid to rest next to her parents, her sister and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Her coffin was placed in the tiny King George VI Memorial Chapel, an annexe to St George’s Chapel in Windsor, with those of Prince Philip, her father George VI and the Queen Mother.

Her Majesty’s wish was to be interred with her parents, her husband and the ashes of her sister Princess Margaret, away from the much larger Royal Vault in St George’s Chapel. 

Prince Harry ‘has a big role to play’ in the Royal Family but needs to ‘ditch’ his upcoming memoir to regain his relatives’ trust, Tina Brown said yesterday. 

The former Vanity Fair editor suggested the freeze in hostilities between the Duke of Sussex and his brother, the Prince of Wales, made it a good time to build bridges if he wanted to become more involved. 

She told Lorraine: ‘This is an incredible moment to be used. The country loved that feeling of unity and seeing the brothers back together, it was a beautiful sight.

‘But unless he gives up his book and the tell-all documentaries and interviews then there can be no trust. I think if he does that there can be a way.  

‘The Royal Family needs him and there’s a lot of work to be done. Kate doesn’t want to be travelling the world, she’s the mother of three children.

‘They have to somehow divvy this stuff up and Harry has a big role to play if he wants to. And if Meghan wants to, because of course she hated every bit of it.’

Brown suggested the Sussexes could spend ‘four or five months’ in California and the rest on royal duties. 

She continued: ‘The question is whether they’ve each got the give to do it, because as we know family rancour can go very deep.

‘If Harry doesn’t want to bin the book then I can’t see a way forward.’

Brown went on to suggest that the Sussexes would have far more potential to ‘do good’ within the Royal Family than outside it. 

‘Diana always knew that it was being inside that gave her the power,’ she said. ‘When she shook hands with the Aids patient she did that as Princess of Wales, and it was bringing the lustre of the monarchy to the moment that made that gesture go around the world.’
