Prince Charles may 'never forgive' Prince Harry, maddening Queen - report

Prince Charles may "never forgive" Prince Harry for his tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, maddening Queen Elizabeth II, a new report suggests.

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle spoke to the television personality in March about life within the royal family, claiming there were concerns about how dark their son's skin may be and also accusing Charles of letting them down and ignoring their calls.

The explosive interview further damaged relations within the family but there were hopes the father and son could sort out their issues while Harry was in the United Kingdom for Prince Philip's funeral. 

While it's been reported that Charles, Harry and Prince William met for peace talks following the funeral, a source has now told US Weekly that the father is having trouble moving on - and it's annoying the Queen. 

"With the way things are going, Charles may never forgive Harry, which hasn't gone down well with Elizabeth," the insider told US Weekly.

"She feels that he's putting his pride before the best interest of the monarchy. She has enough on her plate dealing with the loss of her husband. It's drama she can do without."

Harry and William were spotted chatting directly after the funeral service raising hopes that frosty relations between the pair may be thawing. While the source says they are still not speaking regularly, "William wants to be the bigger person and set a precedent". 

He wants to keep things civil and not fan the flames, which the source says is making the Queen happy. 

"Elizabeth is proud of William for taking the dignified approach, unlike Charles, who still hasn't forgiven Harry for dragging his name through the mud."

Despite the reported two-hour long peace talks, another source said Harry and Charles barely talked in the UK and there continues to be a "huge wedge" between them.

Meghan, who is expecting a baby girl, did not accompany her husband to the funeral service, with Buckingham Palace announcing she had been advised by doctors not to fly. 

William and Harry may reunite again in July if the younger brother returns to the UK for the unveiling of a statue of their late mother Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday.
