In the days since Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest Monday, dueling reports have emerged about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interactions with the royal family before and after the beloved monarch’s death.

With these reports, it’s apparent that different sides are trying to gain a public relations advantage with attempts to make one side — Harry and Meghan, or King Charles III and the royal family — look more understandably aggrieved than the other. Unfortunately, the reports raise questions about whether there’s any hope that this famously fractured family will ever reconcile.

One particularly explosive new report from The Sun, for example, said that Harry was so furious that Charles asked him on Sept. 8 to not bring Meghan to Balmoral Castle, where the queen lay dying, that he missed an RAF flight with Prince William and other royal family members to Scotland.

The Duke of Sussex apparently couldn’t understand his father’s concern that his polarizing American wife would make his relatives uncomfortable at a difficult time — even after she implicitly threatened to release more secrets about her time in the royal family in a recent interview, according to The Sun. The result of Harry’s “rowing” is that he had to scramble to get a commercial flight to Scotland and arrived at Balmoral several hours later than the others, long after the queen had died, The Sun said.

“Harry was so busy trying to get Meghan to Balmoral and rowing with his family that he missed the flight,” a source told The Sun.

Other reports from Page Six dispute The Sun’s account of that day, including the idea that Harry, angry about his wife being banned from the queen’s deathbed, refused to dine with his father and brother, Prince William, that evening at Balmoral. Indeed, a new Page Six report suggests that Harry was tragically kept out of the loop about his grandmother’s failing health as he “desperately tried to make it to (her) bedside to say farewell.”

Harry only learned that she had died from online reports after his flight landed in Scotland, Page Six said, citing a Buckingham Palace source.

“The strain and agony was etched on Harry’s face as he was driven to Balmoral … hours after she had already passed away,” Page Six reported.

Then again, other Buckingham Palace sources have told Page Six and The Telegraph that Charles called Harry that morning to let him know the queen probably wouldn’t survive the day. The Telegraph reported last …read more
