Prince Harry has ‘reached out to his father’ to have ‘friendly video calls’ ahead of the Queen’s Jubilee, a source has claimed.
The Duke of Sussex, 37, who lives in a $14million mansion in Montecito, California, with his wife Meghan Markle, 40, and their children was expected to come to the UK for the Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service in the spring and the Queen’s Jubilee in the summer.
However, a recent row over the Metropolitan Police providing their security has called their return into doubt. But, the royal is said to have contacted his father for ‘friendly chats’ and hopes to visit the UK later this year.
‘There has been a definite thaw in relations between Harry and Charles. They are on much better terms and have been having friendly chats and video calls. It has been suggested to Harry he may live to regret any lingering family bitterness, and he has taken that on board.
‘There is a feeling he is coming back more into the fold and wants to be closer to his family,’ a source told the Sun. It comes as Harry’s refusal to return without a substantial level of security from the Met Police is said to have put the reunion in doubt.
Prince Harry faced outrage over his threat of legal action against Her Majesty’s Government. He is seeking a judicial review of the decision to strip him of his UK police protection team, claiming it is too dangerous to visit without Scotland Yard bodyguards.
