William & Charles 'won't open their arms to Harry again' after Oprah interview

PRINCE Charles and William will not "open their arms" to Harry again in the wake of the shocking Oprah Winfrey interview, a top royal expert has claimed.

It's already been reported that the Duke of Sussex did not leave the UK on good terms with his father after returning home from the States for Prince Philip’s funeral.

Now Charlie Rae, a former royal editor at The Sun, has told talkRADIO, he doesn't believe Charles and William are over Harry and Meghan's high-profile TV chat.

Radio show host Kevin O'Sullivan said: "We read that Harry was shocked by the frosty reception he got from some members of the Royal Family.

"Some literally turned their back on him. He was stunned by this – I'm not sure why that was a surprise to him.

"It must be occurring to him how frozen out he is, how he has turned his back on his former life.

"There is suggestion that when he came back a few weeks ago, he was reminded of his old life."

He added: "He felt rather nostalgic about it and he isn't so thrilled about his new circumstances as he wants you to believe."

Mr Rae responded: "Out in the US, Harry looks like a startled rabbit caught in the headlights.

"I believe that this is a problem that will never go away, it will not be solved.

"I do not believe that William and Charles will be extending their open arms again to Harry in the light of what he said.

"They slagged off Kate. I think it's too far now."

He added: "Why did he think he could come back for a funeral and expect everyone to throw their arms around him after he called them a bunch of racists?"

Mr O'Sullivan responded: "This guy crossed over line."

In March's bombshell Oprah chat, Meghan told how her mental health had suffered during her time as a working royal – and she felt suicidal while pregnant with Archie.

Meanwhile, Harry said his dad and brother were "trapped" in the Royal firm and that one member of the Royal Family had probed the duke about his unborn son and what colour his skin would be.

The Queen then released a statement almost two days after the chat saying the claims would be taken "very seriously".

Harry returned to the UK for the first time in over a year for his grandfather Philip’s funeral ceremony last month.

The Duke of Sussex did spend time with his father and brother following the service – but it's claimed little progress was made and relations remain icy.

Harry's discussions with his brother and dad were “very strained” and were only an “opening move” to heal the royal rift, according to royal author Phil Dampier.

He told The Sun Online: “The discussions after Prince Philip’s funeral were a start, but were clearly very strained and only an opening move."

Renowned royal biographer Angela Levin also claims the Prince of Wales is poised to "cut the monarchy down" in the future to save cash.

The Mail Online reports a slimmed-down version could see just Charles, Camilla, William, Kate, Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte as senior royals.

Others may be urged to look for other ways to help support themselves and could end up losing their highly-valued titles and patronages. 

Meanwhile, Harry is due to return for an unveiling of a statue for his mother, the late Princess Diana.

The brothers announced the commission of the statue two years ago on the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, and it is hoped Harry's planned return will be another positive step towards his reunion with his family.
