 King Charles aims to settle the rift with Prince Harry: ‘The door is always open’


“The door is always wide open,” King Charles III, amidst the intricacies of royal family dynamics, demonstrates a determined commitment to addressing issues with his son, Prince Harry, while also embracing a pragmatic stance when confronted with circumstances beyond his influence. This profound understanding of the Monarch’s perspective is unveiled in the latest work by Robert Hardman, titled “Charles III: New King, New Court, The Inside Story.”

According to the Mirror, Hardman’s book sheds light on the perceived preoccupations of the King and his staff, especially concerning the challenges posed by Prince Harry and Prince Andrew. Contrary to popular belief, King Charles has developed a method of managing these family matters, learning to compartmentalize and maintain focus on his royal duties.

Hardman, a renowned historian, elaborates on the King’s sentiment towards the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan. There is a blend of sadness and exasperation from the King’s side, as he feels that he has extended his efforts towards reconciliation but now must prioritize his responsibilities as the head of the monarchy.

A close friend of the King is quoted in the book, stating that while King Charles has been open and listening in the past, he now chooses to focus on his life and duties, rather than dwelling on problems.

Despite this, the possibility of reconciliation remains. A senior royal official is cited in the book, expressing the enduring paternal hope of King Charles. The official acknowledges the need to respect Prince Harry’s current choices and the path he has taken, while also emphasizing that the doors to reconciliation remain open. The King, it seems, holds onto the hope that his son might eventually choose to return, and in the meantime, allows him the freedom and space to pursue his journey.

In essence, while King Charles may be deeply affected by the estrangement from Prince Harry, he has learned to balance his emotional responses with the practicalities of his role as the Monarch. His approach is one of patient openness, maintaining the possibility for future reconciliation while not allowing these personal matters to overshadow his royal obligations.
