According to the Duchess’ friend Gayle King, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are leaving for Los Angeles without reaching a settlement with King Charles and Prince William.

The host of CBS Mornings claimed that the “turmoil” caused by Megyn Kelly and the Sussexes’ interview with Oprah Winfrey has not been resolved while she was in London for the Queen’s funeral.

Harry and William have frequently stood next to their father, King Charles III, as he laments the loss of his mother. There was also a joint engagement with Meghan and Kate, but it is unclear whether this tenuous ceasefire will last, particularly since Harry’s autobiography is set to be published later this year.

Following her introduction by Oprah Winfrey, Ms. King met Meghan and Harry and went to the Duchess’ opulent baby shower hosted by Serena Williams and Amal Clooney. In the US media, she is regarded as one of the couple’s key allies.

Speaking outside Westminster Abbey after the Queen’s funeral, she said: ‘There have been efforts on both sides … to sort of make this right’.

She admitted that despite these “efforts,” there had been no rapprochement and continued: ‘Big families always go through drama, always go through turmoil. It remains to be seen — are they going to be drawn closer together or are they going to be drawn apart? I have no idea, I have no inside information on that, but I will tell you this: It was good to see Harry standing with his family’.

While Meghan and Harry spent the night of the funeral on Monday at Windsor’s Frogmore Cottage, they were reportedly planning to return to California as soon as possible to be with Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, after a two-week absence.

The Sussexes haven’t been spotted in public since Harry puffed his cheeks and Meghan looked ahead as they left St. George’s Chapel when the Queen was laid to rest. The Royal Family is in mourning for another week, and all engagements have been postponed until next Tuesday.

However, it’s not out of the question that they’ve already checked into their Montecito mansion.

The Royal Family waited together at Windsor Castle as they prepared to accompany the Queen to her final resting place in St. George’s Chapel, as seen in extraordinary new photos that have surfaced.

Given their positions, uniforms, and the intensely public nature of their grief, the pictures depict a family scene that is both typical and unique.

They also provide a glimpse of the interpersonal dynamics within the Royal Family in the wake of the well-publicized breakdown of the brotherly bond between Prince William and Harry and Harry’s ongoing criticism of the government in the wake of Megxit.

A stern-faced King Charles III can be seen in the pictures holding a ceremonial sword in one hand while occasionally chitchatting with other royals, including Prince Edward.

Other times, Prince Harry and Peter Phillips, the son of Anne, Princess Royal, are seen walking across a perfectly manicured lawn next to St. George’s Chapel while Prince Edward is seen conversing with his brother Prince Andrew.

Harry also speaks with Anne and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Lawrence, who is Anne’s husband. Other royals are also in attendance, including Prince William and Lord Linley, Charles’ cousin.

Several unusual public displays of Harry and William’s cooperation took place this week. The Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan, were invited to tour floral tributes outside Windsor Castle with the Prince and Princess of Wales on September 10. William was last seen directing the couple to their seats in St. George’s Chapel yesterday.

The Queen was finally laid to rest following the service in St. George’s Chapel alongside her parents, sister, and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Her body was interred alongside those of Prince Philip, her father George VI, and the Queen Mother in Windsor’s tiny King George VI Memorial Chapel, an annex to St. George’s Chapel.

Her Majesty wanted to be buried away from the much larger Royal Vault in St. George’s Chapel, with her parents, her husband, and her sister Princess Margaret’s ashes.

Tina Brown stated yesterday that Prince Harry “has a big role to play” in the Royal Family but that he needs to “ditch” his upcoming memoir in order to win back their trust.

The former editor of Vanity Fair suggested that if he wanted to get more involved, now would be a good time to build relationships with the Duke of Sussex’s brother, the Prince of Wales.

To Lorraine, she said: ‘This is an incredible moment to be used. The country loved that feeling of unity and seeing the brothers back together, it was a beautiful sight.

‘But unless he gives up his book and the tell-all documentaries and interviews then there can be no trust. I think if he does that there can be a way.

‘The Royal Family needs him and there’s a lot of work to be done. Kate doesn’t want to be travelling the world, she’s the mother of three children.

‘They have to somehow divvy this stuff up and Harry has a big role to play if he wants to. And if Meghan wants to, because of course she hated every bit of it.’

The Sussexes might spend “four or five months” in California and the remaining time performing royal duties, according to Brown.

She continued: ‘The question is whether they’ve each got the give to do it, because as we know family rancour can go very deep.

‘If Harry doesn’t want to bin the book then I can’t see a way forward.’

The Sussexes would have much greater potential to “do good” within the Royal Family than outside of it, Brown continued.

‘Diana always knew that it was being inside that gave her the power,’ she said. ‘When she shook hands with the Aids patient she did that as Princess of Wales, and it was bringing the lustre of the monarchy to the moment that made that gesture go around the world.’
