After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey last week, Harry has finally spoken to his brother, Prince William, and father Prince Charles, Gayle King said on CBS This Morning.
"The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation," King explained. "And I think what is still upsetting to them is the palace keep saying they want to work it out privately, but yet, they believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging against Meghan, still."
According to King, the royals have not spoken to Meghan "and I think it's frustrating for them to see that it's a racial conversation about the royal family when all they wanted all along was for the royals to intervene and tell the press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate, false stories that definitely have a racial slant.
"And until you can acknowledge that, I think it's going to be hard to move forward. But they both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. At the end of the day, that is Harry's family."
King added that the bullying allegations against Meghan were raised in 2018 but are only being investigated now but "anyone who has worked with her will tell you exactly who she is."
"You know, she's really a very sweet, caring person. And as I say, Meghan has documents to back up everything that she said on Oprah's interview. Everything," she added.
This comes after The Sun reported that Harry and William had started messaging each other but are still "as far apart as it’s possible to be."
Last week, William told reporters that he had not yet spoken to Harry but would, adding that they are "very much not a racist family."
With their mother Princess Diana’s 60th birthday in July, the pair want to put on a united front to unveil a statue of her in Kensington Palace. "The public needs to see the brothers and their wives together if the family wants to move past the accusations of racism that have been leveled at them," a source told OK!.
"William always takes the high road. He is still personally livid with Harry but once again William is putting the Crown and the British public before his own personal feelings. There is a lot of history and love between the two brothers, and William is refusing to judge Harry on what the family sees as the ultimate betrayal," the insider added.
As OK! previously reported, a third party will now look into the allegations against Meghan — after Buckingham Palace reportedly initially planned an in-house investigation.
Meghan allegedly "drove two personal assistants out of the household and was undermining the confidence of a third staff member," The Times London reported.
Harry told Winfrey during the interview that his father cut him off financially and had stopped taking his calls. He revealed that Princess Diana's money has helped him and Meghan relocate to California.
