The Royal family is said to have 'suspended talks' with Prince Harry and Meghan for this reason

The Royal Family is understood to have suspended talks with Prince Harry and Meghan after Buckingham Palace aides were reportedly concerned about the leaking of information on the Sussex side.

Prince Harry met up with Prince Charles and his brother Prince William for the first time since the Harry and Meghan bombshell interview (opens in new tab) with talk show host Oprah Winfrey aired when he attended his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral (opens in new tab).

But while Prince Charles had hoped the two brothers could heal their rift, Prince Harry returned to LA (opens in new tab) to be reunited with his wife Meghan and their son Archie (opens in new tab), one, and their unborn baby (opens in new tab) just days after the service, leaving little time to talk.

And it's now claimed that because several stories have surfaced about Prince Harry's secret meetings with the Queen (opens in new tab) and how he broke the ice with William (opens in new tab), shortly after Harry touched down in America, 'The Firm' (opens in new tab) fear private information from any future royal chats will be leaked to the public.

As a result, no “meaningful conversations” have taken place since the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral last week, according to The Sun.

Meanwhile, Royal commentator Angela Levin told the Sun she believes the Royal family would be "crazy to talk to Meghan and Harry", and explained, "In no time it would be out in magazines and on social media. Whenever anything happens to them, big or small, they have to tell the world. They are obsessed with global. They should actually just continue their lives. People don’t need to know exactly what they are doing."

She added, "They are desperate that everybody knows what they are doing every minute of the day."
