Royal family ‘increasingly frustrated’ that King Charles III ‘won’t just fix things’ with Prince Harry: book

Members of the British royal family are allegedly getting fed up with King Charles III’s reluctance to reconcile with his youngest son, Prince Harry.

In an advance copy of “Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival” obtained by Page Six, journalist Omid Scobie spoke to several sources about the Duke of Sussex’s turbulent past few years.

Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, famously stepped back as senior members of the royal family and relocated to California in 2020. Since then, the two have released bombshell claims about the monarchy in various interviews and in Harry’s tell-all memoir, “Spare.”

While Harry and Markle have allegedly made several attempts to reconnect with their estranged family members, it seems Charles and others across the pond won’t budge.

“It’s complex, but there’s increasing frustration from some of the wider circle of family members that Charles won’t just fix things for the sake of everyone,” a royal source claimed to Scobie.

Meanwhile, a friend of Harry’s claimed the royal reached out to Charles to wish the family a Merry Christmas in 2022 after his father refused to make the first move, another excerpt from the book claims.

“It was an awkward conversation, but he knew if he didn’t make those first steps, there would never be any progress,” the pal explained of Harry’s decision to reach out to his father.

“There were no raised voices, no arguments … but the King was cold and brief rather than open to any proper dialogue.”

Elsewhere in the book, Scobie alleged “both the institution and the family” were still struggling to “come to grips with [the] fact” that Harry, 39, and Markle, 42, have found success in their endeavors after leaving the UK.

The couple, who reside in Montecito, Calif., are also parents to Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2.

“I’ve watched Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace repeatedly get worried about being upstaged and derailed by the couple, and leak negative information on Harry and Meghan … during moments that could easily be focused on genuine royal news instead,” the controversial journalist wrote.

The bombshell book also addresses the impact Harry’s exit from the UK — and the subsequent drama caused by the veteran’s several sit-down interviews and “Spare” memoir — had on Prince William.

“After Harry’s exit, William is considerably more alone in the battle of his two selves,” Scobie wrote.

“Even though they were always on different paths, Harry and William once shared an office, worked on the same foundations, and wanted to protect their families from the things they both feared.”

A source also claimed to the author that William, 41, and his father, Charles, 75, “have been unified in their frustrations with Harry.” Page Six has reached out to the palace for comment.
