Prince Harry Spoke to William & Charles, but the Conversation Was Unproductive, Says Gayle King

According to Gayle King, Prince Harry spoke to Prince William and Prince Charles after his interview with Oprah, but the conversation was unproductive.

The aftermath of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey continues to unfold, and Winfrey’s dear friend Gayle King has given fans an update about the controversy.

On Tuesday’s episode of “CBS This Morning,” King revealed that she spoke to Harry and Meghan over the weekend and found that the Duke of Sussex has spoken to his brother Prince William and his father, Prince Charles.

King said that she was told that the conversations were not productive. However, they are glad that discussions around the issues laid out in the interview had begun. King elaborated on the matter and said:

“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...”

The television personality added that she was told that no one in the palace has spoken to Meghan yet and that the Sussexes are frustrated as all they wanted from the start was for the royal family to intervene with the press.

[Meghan and Harry] shared that there were concerns and conversations about how dark Archie’s skin color would be.

The couple reportedly wanted the royal family to stop the press from publishing stories with a racial undertone, and until that is acknowledged, it would be difficult for both parties to move on and heal.

Fans may recall that during the sit-down with Winfrey, the couple detailed negative experiences with the royal family. They shared that there were concerns and conversations about how dark Archie’s skin color would be.

Four days after the interview aired, Prince William responded to the racism claims during his and Kate Middleton’s first public outing following the CBS Special and said, “We are very much not a racist family.”

The Duke of Cambridge also shared that he hadn’t spoken to his brother at the time, but he would ensure to do so later. Harry and Meghan dropped several bombshells about their time as senior members of the royal family.

One of the shocking revelations made during the candid conversation was Harry saying that his family members were trapped in the institution of the royal family. The duke explained that he wouldn’t have stepped down if not for Meghan.

He mentioned that he didn’t know he was trapped until meeting Meghan, adding that Prince William and Prince Charles were also trapped and felt compassion for them.
