“Harry did speak to William while he was in the U.K., so in that respect, they made some progress,” an insider told Us Weekly. “But they definitely haven’t reached the stage where all is forgiven nor have they buried the hatchet.”

Harry, 36, flew to the U.K. to attend Prince Philip's April 17 funeral, marking the first time he had been back home since he left the royal family in 2020.

In March, the red-headed royal detailed his broken relationship with his brother to Oprah Winfrey. "I love William to bits. He's my brother. We've been through hell together. But we are on different paths," he shared. "The relationship is space. Time heals all things, hopefully."

Since then, William has been unhappy that his younger brother blabbed about their issues on television. However, the two were seen talking after the funeral

"I think it's a good start and it was lovely to see but this whole argument runs so deep," an insider shared with PEOPLE. "I don't think there is any quick fix."

Ultimately, it seems like William and Harry are trying to move forward since the latter and Meghan Markle privately reached out to William and Kate Middleton to congratulate them on their 10th wedding anniversary, The Royal Observer previously reported.

“Charles is still fuming about Harry throwing shade at him and the royal family in the big interview and won’t let it drop,” a source said. “But to be honest, Harry didn’t go running back to Charles begging for forgiveness either. He still hasn’t forgiven his father for his lack of effort and support after he and Meghan decided to move. The reason Harry went back to the U.K. was to see the queen and to pay his respects to Prince Philip. That’s about as far as it goes.”

 “To put it bluntly, it’s unlikely that we’ll be seeing Harry and Charles making amends anytime soon," the insider added. 

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe believes Harry is "feeling embarrassed, regretful and awkward" about the whole situation. “He’s now facing the consequences. I believe he’ll regret that interview — and maybe his decision to leave the royal family," he said.
