The Palace Is Facing Pressure to Bring Prince William and Prince Harry Back Together

Their estranged relationship remains untouched with King Charles' crowning ceremony right around the corner.

Buckingham Palace is feeling the heat. The royal family is less than three months away from King Charles’ coronation ceremony and Prince William and Prince Harry still haven’t reached some sort of truce, despite their father’s efforts.

Just last month it was leaked that Charles had enlisted the help of archbishop Justin Welby, who has acted as the family’s mediator in the past, to bring his sons back together. Now, however, a source tells Us Weekly the brothers are moving in the opposite direction of a reconciliation.

“The longer the feud continues, the less likely there’ll be a reconciliation,” the source told the outlet. “With the coronation just a few months away, appropriate actions need to be taken imminently.”

It’s all up in the air, the source added. The Firm is trying to gauge whether William and Harry’s estranged relationship can be healed in time. The three-day celebration will kick off with Charles’ official crowning ceremony at Westminster Abbey on May 6th.

The date is another issue for Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, as it is their son’s fourth birthday. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have yet to receive their formal invitation. Should their attendance be requested, it’s unclear whether their kids, Archie and Lilibet, will be invited as well.

“The palace is trying to come up with solutions to keep the peace and form some kind of reconnection and unity between William and Harry. It’s now or never,” the source said. “The coronation is a time to celebrate, and no one wants this dark cloud hanging over the festivities on such a significant occasion.”

The brotherly duo haven’t seen eye to eye for quite some time. Fans got a taste of their tumultuous relationship during the Harry & Meghan Netflix docuseries. Things worsened after the release of Harry’s tell-all memoir, Spare, in which the Duke didn’t leave one stone unturned.

The royal family including Charles and William have not publicly addressed the couple’s docuseries or Spare. However, the delay in Harry’s coronation invite speaks for itself.

Fans can pick up a copy of Spare, which is officially available wherever books are sold. Volumes one and two of Harry & Meghan can be streamed on Netflix.
