Prince Harry has spoken to his older brother Prince William and their father Prince Charles after his explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Winfrey’s girlfriend Gayle King reported on “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday that the Royal Family spoke over the weekend. King, 66, is also friends with Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle.
“Well I’m not trying to break the news but I called them to see how they were feeling and it’s true Harry talked to his brother and he also talked to his dad,” said King as cited by People Magazine.
“The word I was given was these conversations weren’t productive,” King said. “But they’re happy to have at least started a conversation. And I think what still bothers them is that the palace keeps saying they want to work in private, but yet they believe these fake stories are still very disparaging of Meghan. “

“No one in the royal family has spoken to Meghan yet, at this exact moment,” King continued. “I think it’s frustrating for them to see this is a racial conversation about the Royal Family when they have always wanted the Royal Family to step in and tell the press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate fake stories and who definitely have a racial bias.
“And until you can admit it, I think it’s going to be difficult to move forward. But they both want to move on with this and they both want to heal in this family. Ultimately, it’s Harry’s family.
On March 7, CBS aired a two-hour interview the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did with Winfrey, 67. broken.
Markle, 39, also described feeling so isolated and miserable within the royal family that she had thoughts of suicide. The Duchess of Sussex also alleged that a member of the royal family had ‘concerns’ about the color of her unborn child’s skin.

The family member was not Queen Elizabeth II or Prince Philip, according to Harry, prompting a wave of speculation about who it could be.
Harry also told Winfrey that the Royal Family cut him off financially in early 2020 after announcing his intention to step down from his roles. But he was able to ensure the safety of his family thanks to the money left by his late mother, Princess Diana.
Charles was asked by a reporter about the interview during a recent visit to a vaccination clinic in London, but remained silent. When William was approached during a visit to a school in East London, he said: “We are really not a racist family”.
Omid Scobie, the royal editor of Harper’s Bazaar and co-author of Finding Freedom, also said OK! According to the magazine on Tuesday, the Queen, 94, is likely to persuade William to continue reaching out to his younger brother.

“Throughout it all, the one relationship that has remained close and constant is the Queen and Harry and Meghan,” Scobie said on the exit. “The Queen will speak with all relevant members of the Royal Family and not just as a monarch, but as a mother and grandmother. Peace in the family is so important and she is at her happiest when everyone is happy with each other. These fractures would be upsetting to her. “
“She will definitely encourage William to have conversations with his brother,” he explained. “I’m sure she would have been disappointed to hear William not reaching out after Meghan shared her mental health issues, including her suicidal thoughts. She would absolutely be the one to encourage this conversation.”
Thirty-six hours after the interview aired in the United States, Buckingham Palace issued a statement.
“The whole family is saddened to learn how difficult the past few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” a palace statement provided to Fox News said. “The issues raised, particularly that of race, are of concern. While some memories may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be treated by the family in private.”

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members,” the statement concluded.
Representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made no comment when contacted by Fox News.
