Apparently things still aren’t exactly tickety-boo

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been told to sort out their feud with Prince William and Kate Middleton which was riled by their famous Oprah interview, insiders claim.

Sources have suggested the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been asked to apologise about the interview and “acknowledge the motives behind it” before the Queen‘s funeral on Monday, an insider told The Telegraph.

“They feel they’ve had to be steely to send a message that you cannot just say this hugely upsetting stuff without there being consequences,” the insider added.

Both royal couples turned up at Windsor Castle together last week to greet mourners and read tributes to the late monarch. All four of them also joined other members of the Royal Family for a private gathering at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening to receive the Queen’s coffin, before they escorted it to Westminster Hall on Wednesday.

In their 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Harry and Meghan claimed the arrival of their son Archie was treated differently to other royal children. They said there had been “concerns” over the colour of Archie’s skin, and Meghan said she felt suicidal, but was not allowed to get help.

Prince Harry told the presenter that a distance had formed between him and his brother after deciding to leave the royal family.

“As I’ve said before, I love William to bits,” Harry said, “He’s my brother. We’ve been through hell together. We have a shared experience, but we were on different paths.”

Meghan also claimed that Kate was the one who was upset about the flower girl dresses, which made Meghan cry at her wedding, rather than the reversal which was suggested in the media. But she did go on to describe her sister-in-law as a “good person”.

The four will unite again to attend the Queen’s funeral on Monday. The service will officially begin at 11am, with up to one million mourners expected to gather in the palace area of London.
