King Charles III still harbors hopes of reconciling with his estranged son, Prince Harry, according to a recent report. The ailing King would be thrilled to welcome the Duke of Sussex back into the royal family, but there’s a catch: Harry must convince his father that he will never again bring embarrassment to the royals, an expert has claimed.

The monarch is ready to embrace Harry again if he pledges not to write any more tell-all books about the family or participate in “embarrassing” interviews, according to royal insider Tom Quinn.

“King Charles would love to be closer to Harry and to have a relationship with his son that actually works. But this depends on Harry giving his father cast-iron guarantees that there will be no more books and no more embarrassing interviews,” Quinn told the Mirror.

“Harry still feels that he is the victim and that his family need to make promises to him, not the other way round,” Quinn added.

Quinn further explained, “Harry’s comment in ‘Spare’ that he ‘wants peace’ with the royal family for the sake of his mother is undoubtedly heartfelt. However, by focusing so much on Diana, Harry is actually allowing history to repeat itself.”

Other royal commentators and historians have also urged Harry to reconsider his stance and behavior towards the royal family if he truly wants to mend fences with his kin.
