Now, talks between the brothers have been put on hold because the palace is nervous of leaks "from the Sussex side," an insider told the outlet.
Harry returned home on April 12, marking the first time he has been back since he left the royal family in 2020. In March, Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, spoke with Oprah Winfrey about why they moved to California and even claimed that someone in the royal family had "concerns" over Archie's skin color.
During the chat, Harry also didn't hold back when speaking about his brother and father, Prince Charles.
"There is a lot to work through there," he said about Charles. "I feel really let down, because he's been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like. I will always love him, but there is a lot of hurt that's happened. I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try to heal that relationship. But they only know what they know."
Harry met with his brother and father after the funeral service, but no progress was made.
"It is not known what was said behind closed doors and when the cameras were turned off, but it's unfathomable to think Megxit and Oprah did not come up," shared the source. "Harry and William appeared cordial as the cameras rolled and that seemed to pave the way for Charles to join them when everyone had left."
However, there was no "one-on-one" chat between Charles and Harry, as William wanted to hear every conversation, a source claimed.
“They are being protective of one another — no one wants anything private being reported back to anyone. Nobody wants anything out there," an insider shared. “And no one can pretend to know what was said on Saturday — it was just immediate family after the service.”
Moving forward, it seems like William will have a hard time trusting Harry. "I think the Royal Family would be crazy to talk to Meghan and Harry," royal expert Angela Levin said. "In no time it would be out in magazines and on social media."
