Prince William was forced to insist his family wasn’t racist in the days after the explosive interview was aired – saying he would speak to his brother “soon”.
And it was today claimed the brothers had finally spoken – although it was reported the chat was “unproductive”.
And royal expert Penny Junor today told the Telegraph: “At the moment Harry seems to have taken ownership of the whole story. He is calling the shots on what this family is all about and invoking Diana.
“But what he’s actually done is effectively put a bomb under William’s future. He’s done such damage to his family.”
It comes as…
- Prince Philip today was released from hospital after a month of treatment
- Prince Harry and Prince William have spoken after the Oprah interview – but the talks were ‘unproductive’, it was claimed
- Meghan Markle still has not spoken to anyone in the Royal Family, it was reported
- The Sussexes dropped their Sussex Royal monogram
Harry accused the Royal Family of racism and Meghan blasted William’s wife Kate in the tell-all chat.
Meghan, 39, said her sister-in-law, Kate, received preferential treatment and made her cry during a dress fitting before her wedding to Harry.
Harry also claimed William and their father, Prince Charles, were “trapped” by their royal responsibilities.
But he insisted that while he and William were on “different paths” he loved his brother “to bits”.
Meghan also made a series of claims – including allegations an unnamed royal had raised “concerns” about the “skin colour” of her and Harry’s children.
And the Royal Family has been left reeling by the claims.
The Queen, 94, released a carefully-worded statement over the interview, saying she was unhappy to hear the couple had struggled during their time in the family.
But she said “recollections may vary” – saying the matters would be dealt with privately.
And Oprah’s friend Gayle King today revealed she had spoken to the couple over the weekend as the fallout from the interview rumbles on.
The TV host told CBS: “I think what is still upsetting to them is that the palace keeps saying they want to work it out privately, but yet, the false stories are coming out that are disparaging against Meghan still.
“No one in the royal family has talked to Meghan yet at this particular time.
“They both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. At the end of the day, that’s Harry’s family.”
Harry and Meghan are now living in the US after quitting the Royal Family.
They claimed during the interview they had had no plan after leaving the UK before going on to sign multi-million pound deals with Netflix and Spotify.
They revealed in the interview they are expecting a little girl – who will make son Archie a big brother.
