Queen Elizabeth II has been going the extra mile to try and heal the rift, as a second source claimed she was "in constant crisis meetings" since the interview aired.

In the two-hour CBS special, Harry and Meghan made several serious allegations against the royals. To start, they both claimed they were denied help when they revealed they were struggling with their mental health. Meghan even confessed she experienced suicidal thoughts, but still, no aid was given. 

They also stated Archie wasn't going to be given a full security team, and that while Meghan was pregnant, members of the royal family expressed "concerns" over the color of the baby's skin.

Meanwhile, Harry noted he felt "trapped" within his role in the family, and said that no one would offer a solution when he voiced his worries over the "barrage" of media attention he and Meghan were constantly receiving. He even went as far to admit he feared his wife would end up like his mother, Princess Diana, who died in a 1997 car crash.

Harry also confessed he and his brother, Prince William, are taking "space" from each other. In response to the allegations made, Buckingham Palace put out an official statement.

"The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning," it read. "While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."

News anchor Gayle King revealed Harry has since talked to his father, Prince Charles, and William, but their conversation didn't do any good.

"I did actually call them to see how they were feeling, and it's true, Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too," King shared. "The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation."

"It's a sad state of affairs, because William and Harry could have been so brilliant [together]," a second insider told PEOPLE. "To think of what they could have achieved together is almost heartbreaking."
