Around good news, families, even royal ones, gather. This is what the Telegraph reports this Tuesday, June 8: Prince Harry and his father Charles would be closer since the birth of Lilibet Diana.
The art of being a grandfather. The British newspaper The Telegraph reports this Tuesday, June 8, how the birth of Lilibet Diana could soften the relationship between Prince Charles and his youngest son Harry. The Prince of Wales shared his joy of becoming a grandfather for the fifth time, and that the birth of his granddaughter “was such good news”, during a visit to a factory of the car manufacturer Mini.
He spoke about the need for technological advances in the field of energy, a subject “of which I am only too aware, having recently become a grandfather for the fifth time. And such good news is just a reminder of the need to innovate in this area (…) bearing in mind what we will be leaving to our grandchildren.” Sources close to Prince Charles told The Telegraph that he talks “regularly” to Harry, and that their relationship, which has been strained since allegations of racism against a member of the royal family, has taken a real turn since the birth of Lilibet Diana.
Towards a family reunion at Windsor Castle?
However, Harry claimed in March during his interview with Oprah Winfrey that the relationship with his father was broken, because he felt “abandoned” by the lack of empathy of his father. He had even claimed to have stopped answering his phone calls, without however closing the door completely: “We still have a lot of issues to discuss”. The journalist Gayle King, close to the Sussexes, had also suggested that Harry, his brother William and their father had exchanged but that their conversations were “not productive”.
It is the whole royal family that would be ready to forget the tensions between the Sussexes and the rest of the Firm. The English press reports that the Queen herself would have invited Harry to lunch at Windsor Castle, when the prince will be in the United Kingdom for the unveiling of a statue in honor of his mother Diana, scheduled for July 1.
