There have been ongoing reports of a royal rift between Prince Harry and Prince William, ever since the Sussexes stepped down as senior royals (opens in new tab) in 2020 and gave their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

Since then, the announcement of Harry’s tell-all memoir (opens in new tab) has reportedly the Firm despairing. The Queen is also said to be feeling very anxious (opens in new tab) over its contents that are supposedly set to 'shake the monarchy to its core (opens in new tab)'. 

Her Majesty is also said to be devastated by how some members of the royal family are behaving (opens in new tab).

However, royal expert Katie Nicholl says that the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this year could be the perfect time for Harry and Wills to try and hash things out.

Speaking to the Mirror, Katie explained, "Harry will want to be a part of the celebratory weekend, and will almost certainly be required to appear with William at that time.

"Both brothers will have to make concessions. The Jubilee should give them more of a chance to thrash it out."

Prince Harry and Meghan are set to make their big return to the UK (opens in new tab) in the summer, but the drama surrounding the rift has left royal insiders fearing they may steal focus from The Queen’s special milestone.

Harry, however, is said to be determined to return so that his children, Archie and Lilibet, are not ‘robbed’ of royal life (opens in new tab) and are able to bond with their cousins.

His father, Prince Charles, is also said to be desperate to meet baby Lilibet (opens in new tab). He has even extended an olive branch for the family to stay with him when they return amid Harry's fears over not being granted sufficient security measures.
