‘Both sides’ in Meghan, Harry’s royal rift wants peace

Gayle King claims Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not yet reached a peace deal with the royal family, despite efforts by both sides.

“Efforts have been made on both sides to make up for this,” King, 67, told “Extra” after Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday.

“We will see.”

The CBS Morning host, who knows the Duke and Duchess of Sussex through her best friend Oprah Winfrey, said it is quite normal for “large families” to “go through drama.”

However, King adds that it “remains to be seen” whether the royal breach will ever resolve.

“Will they be pulled closer together or will they be pulled apart?” she said. “I have no idea. I have no inside information on that, but I’ll tell you this: it was good to see Harry with his family.”

King’s information comes amid reports that Markle has contacted King Charles III for a one-on-one meeting so they can make things right.

“She now wants to have a one-on-one audience with King Charles III before they return to California,” royal reporter Neil Sean claimed. “That’s right, Meghan one-on-one with King Charles III. You heard it right.”

Markle is said to have made the request in a “formal letter,” saying the meeting would serve as “an opportunity to clear the air, separate the rights from injustice, and share some of the rationale behind what they’ve done over the past two years.” have done to explain.”

As previously reported, Markle, 41, and Harry, 38, traveled to the UK ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s death on September 8. They left their two children – Archie, 3, and 1-year-old Lilibet – at home in Montecito, Calif.

The Sussexes reunited with their estranged members of the royal family to pay tribute to Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, who was 96 at the time of her death.

Prince Harry and Prince William, along with their husbands, gathered in public for a walk in Windsor Castle to mourn the late Queen with flowers.

The foursome continued to attend various events leading up to the late monarch’s funeral. Markle and Harry joined the royal family when they received the Queen’s coffin at Buckingham Palace, after which William, 40, and Harry dined together.

However, the Susexes were not invited to a pre-funeral reception for the family.

The couple returned as they attended the Queen’s funeral on Monday. They were seemingly snubbed as they sat in the second row behind King Charles III, Queen Consort Camilla, the Prince and Princess of Wales, their two children George and Charlotte, and put Prince Andrew to shame.

Notably, Harry was not allowed to wear his military uniform while on duty.

Harry and the “Suits” alum have been on the run with the royal family since they resigned from their royal duties in 2020 and moved to California a year later.

They added fuel to the fire when the couple sat down with King’s BFF Winfrey for a bombshell interview in March 2021 when Markle criticized the royal family.

During the sit-down, Markle claimed that “the company” did nothing when she came forward about suicidal thoughts. Markle claimed someone in the royal family had raised concerns about their son Archie’s skin color. She also claimed that Middleton, 40, made her cry days before her wedding, although others claim it was the other way around.

While it’s unclear whether Markle and Harry smoothed things out with the royal family, Winfrey claims the funeral could bring peace to the warring family.

“This is what I think, I think in all families – you know, my father passed away recently, this summer – and when all the families come together for a communal ceremony, the ritual of, you know, burying your dead is there’s an opportunity for peacemaking,” Winfrey, who is close friends with the Sussexes, told “Extra” last week.
