Despite tell-all books and documentaries criticizing his monarchy, King Charles III actually "stays in contact" with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry more than the public realizes.

"There is more warmth between Harry and Meghan and Charles than other family members, and that has grown since they've left the country," royal author Omid Scobie told an outlet.

King Charles is not feuding with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the ways his other family members are.

"It's taken a long time to get there. It was often Harry that had to kind of reach out and make that first step. While sources close to Harry say that he understands that his father is never going to want to address many of the things that they experienced and went through, and some of the things that their own family were responsible for, he doesn't want to be completely disconnected from his father," Scobie added.

The writer of the new book, Endgame, also revealed that the Duchess of Sussex speaks with the King as well and is regularly "sending photos and videos of the children to Charles via one of the aides," which "shows that there is hope for the future at least between those two."

This news comes after it was revealed that Harry and Meghan shared a phone call with Charles III on his 75th birthday. The Montecito duo also showed the monarch a video of his grandchildren, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet Diana, serenading him with a rendition of "Happy Birthday."

King Charles was 'greatly angered' by Prince Harry's memoir, 'Spare.'

This was not always the case since the King acceded to the British throne in September 2022. After the release of Harry's controversial memoir, Spare, in January, his father was not the slightest bit amused.

"Encouraged by a close friend, the Duke of Sussex reached out to Charles by phone to try to discuss some of the unresolved issues between them. It was an awkward conversation, but he knew if he didn't make those first steps, there would never be any progress," Scobie wrote in the book.

The author further revealed that there has been "no significant resolution or outcome" since the monarch first spoke with his son about the book, and it was "once again [a] wasted opportunity [for the King] to take the upper hand and let bygones be bygones for the sake of family harmony."

Unlike with his father, Prince Harry is mired down in a 'bitter feud' with his brother, Prince William.

Of all the senior royals criticized in the tome, royal analysts have pointed out that Charles III gets off the easiest when it comes to Harry's pointed attacks. He wrote how he found his dad to be "cold" and "detached" emotionally when he told Prince William and himself about Diana, Princess of Wales's death in 1997. But it was Harry's merciless insights into his stepmother, Queen Camilla, that are claimed to have angered the sovereign.
