William and Harry’s first talk since Oprah interview was ‘unproductive’, claims friend of Meghan

Now this would have been a chat we’d love to have listened in to

Prince Harry has spoken to both his father Prince Charles and his brother William for the first time since the headline-grabbing interview that him and Meghan took part in, according to reports.

This is according to Gayle King, a friend of Meghan Markle’s, who says that she has spoken to the couple, and that they have given her the latest update.

King was speaking on CBS show This Morning (no American Holly and Phil sadly), and said: “The word I was given, those conversations were not productive.” King did add though that the family were “glad they at least started a conversation.”

During the interview with Oprah, which made headlines mostly for the allegations from Meghan that one Royal had voiced concerns over the colour of baby Archie’s skin, Harry also made no secret of the difficult relationship that had developed between him and his father, the Prince of Wales.

Harry said that their relationship had reached the point where his father was no longer taking his calls.

The last we had heard from William on the interview was last week when he and wife Kate were at an engagement at a school in East London. We got two snippets from Will: he said that he hadn’t yet spoken to Harry but would do, and that the royals are “very much not a racist family.”

So the two have apparently now spoken, but not to much avail. And King also said that no one from the family has spoken to Meghan yet.

Whatever the truth around what conversations have or haven’t happened though, it seems that just like the family themselves, the fall out from the Oprah interview will rumble on for quite a while yet.
