“Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father, too,” the broadcast journalist, 66, said. “The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive, but they are glad they at least started a conversation.”
King’s update came after the Times of London reported Harry, 36, had been in contact with his brother Prince William. The U.K. native reportedly wants to reconcile with the 38-year-old Duke of Sussex before a memorial to their late mother, Princess Diana, is unveiled this summer.
Communications between members of the royal family are strained after Harry and his wife Markle, 39, shared a number of revelations during an expansive CBS interview on March 7.
In the sit-down, the couple discussed their headline-making decision to step away from the British royal family and start a new life in the U.S. with their 22-month-old son, Archie. The Suits alum revealed that she had suicidal ideations while living in London due to the negative press she received in the U.K., but was denied help from the institution.
The pair also noted that they’d experienced racism from the royals when an unnamed family member questioned how dark Archie’s skin would be before he was born.
