Meghan Markle and Prince Harry enjoyed the 2023 Invictus Games, but the royal family has been quiet about the sporting event. The Duke of Sussex launched the Invictus Games when he was still a working royal, and he continued the initiative after leaving The Firm.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle traveled to Germany for the Invictus Games, but the royal family failed to comment on the event.

Although the Invictus Games has been applauded by critics, Harry's relatives refrained from commenting on its success. Lady Colin Campbell explained that it would be difficult for senior members of the royal family to publicly discuss the Invictus Games due to Harry's various attacks on the family.

"How can the royals endorse anything that Harry and Meghan are doing without endorsing the lies and accusations that they have made about them?" the Jamaican socialite said in an interview.

"I think the royals are absolutely well advised to totally ignore Harry and Meghan and anything they do," she added.

Lady Colin Campbell thinks Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's constant attacks led to the monarchy's silence.

Harry's relationship with his father, King Charles, and his brother, Prince William, was negatively impacted by his memoir Spare, his explosive 2021 tell-all interview and his Netflix series Harry & Meghan. OK! previously reported royal expert Katie Nicholl revealed that William isn't ready to embrace his sibling just yet.

"My royal sources say that any chance of a reconciliation really isn't ruled out, but it's certainly not going to happen anytime soon," Nicholl told an outlet. "Prince William is still incredibly upset with Harry's autobiography, which, of course, really cast William in a pretty bad light."

Prince William and King Charles' relationship with Prince Harry was impacted by 'Spare.'

In Spare, the Duke of Sussex claimed the Prince of Wales physically assaulted him.

"No one's going to forget anytime soon the stories of them coming to physical blows, and William allegedly shoving Prince Harry, forcing him onto the ground where he landed onto a dog bowl," the biographer added.

Nicholl later explained that William isn't ready to forgive Harry after the veteran publicized their private brawls.

"I'm told by several sources close to the Prince of Wales that William really just cannot find it in his heart at the moment to forgive his brother for what he's done," she shared. "I think Kate, Princess of Wales, she's always always had a very close relationship with Prince Harry, but she's been left quite devastated by some of the anecdotes that Harry told in Spare that didn't cast her in a particularly good light."

"I think there's a great sense of betrayal," she added.
