The Queen is reportedly bothered about the rift between the father and son as it doesn't look like a reconciliation is happening anytime soon. The insider explained to the publication:
"Charles may never forgive Harry, which hasn't gone down well with Elizabeth. She feels that he's putting his pride before the best interest of the monarchy."
Her Majesty is reportedly dealing with a lot with the recent passing of Prince Philip. Hence, the thought of drama between her son and grandson isn't something that she wants to deal with.
During the CBS Special, Harry and Meghan made several shocking claims about their time as senior royals.
The source shared that Prince Charles was less willing to repair the relationship, unlike Prince William, who was seen chatting with Prince Harry last month during Prince Philip's funeral. The Queen was proud of William's gestures.
During Harry's visit to the United Kingdom for his grandfather's burial, it was reported that he met with his brother and father. At the time, a source claimed that Harry and Charles barely communicated.
Fans may recall that during the interview in March, Harry made some shocking revelations about the state of his relationship with his father and brother. He claimed that Prince Charles stopped picking his call at some point.
The Duke of Sussex mentioned that there was a lot of hurt between him and Prince Charles. He noted that both his father and brother were trapped in the institution and revealed he felt sad for them.
During the CBS Special, Harry and Meghan made several shocking claims about their time as senior royals. The duo alleged that a senior royal expressed concerns about Archie's skin color.

Amid the controversy, a source claimed that Prince William is particularly angry at his sister-in-law, and it might take some time before he forgives her. William has been reportedly furious about her behavior for more than a year.
