William, Charles and Kate ‘ironed things out’ with Harry in talk after funeral – source

The four royals reportedly came together for a long talk after Prince Philip’s funeral at the weekend. The Duke of Sussex returned to the UK last week to attend the funeral, after relocating to the US last March. It was the first time Harry has been seen in public with the Royal Family members in over a year.

The royals met up at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s former Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, The Sun claims.

A royal insider told the newspaper that Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, who have been living at the Windsor cottage, “made themselves scarce as Harry, William, Kate and Charles hammered things out”.

The source added: “Harry obviously felt outnumbered as there are three of them and only one of him so wanted it to be on his home turf.

“There is no way this is the end of the crisis in their relationships but it’s a good gesture and a nice way to take the first step towards healing.

“William, Kate and Charles all left after about two hours, which was long enough for the process of getting father and brothers talking again to start.”

Relations between the Sussexes, the Cambridges and Prince Charles have reportedly been tense since Harry and Meghan’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Last month, the Sussexes sat down with the US chat show host to discuss their decision to step back as senior members of the Royal Family.

Harry told Oprah he felt “really let down” by how Charles had handled his decision to leave the UK and step back from royal duties with Meghan.

The Duke of Sussex also claimed his brother and father were “trapped” in the Royal Family.

Harry and William were filmed chatting as they left the funeral on Saturday afternoon.

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief at Majesty Magazine, told The Sun: “I think it would have been small talk.

“Unless Harry brought up Oprah. The last thing you want is to have a row after a funeral.”

The brothers walked apart at their grandfather’s funeral. Harry and William were separated by their cousin Peter Phillips as the family walked behind the coffin of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Before the funeral, Buckingham Palace explained they would not be drawn into “perceptions of drama”.

A Palace spokesman said: “This is a funeral, we’re not going to be drawn into those perceptions of drama, or anything like that, this is a funeral.

“The arrangements have been agreed, and they represent Her Majesty’s wishes, so we’re not going to say anything more on that.”
