Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may find they have “no way back” to reconcile with the royals after the Queen’s death, a royal commentator has claimed.
Despite his exile from the Royal Family over the last couple of years, the Duke of Sussex reportedly retained a strong relationship with his grandmother, and even suggested that he hoped to “protect” her by attending the Jubilee celebrations in the summer.
When news of the Queen’s ailing health broke, Harry was already in the UK attending charity events with his wife Meghan, and the pair have remained in the country during the period of mourning to attend the funeral and spend time with other royals.

But, after appearing to have reconciled his differences with Prince William during a Windsor walkabout, royal commentator Russell Myers has claimed that the loss of the Queen will weaken any chance of Harry’s royal return.
“He’s lost his only ally in this family,” Russell suggested, speaking on The Royal Beat.
“You talk about the olive branch being extended by the King in his statement, the fact William invited him to Windsor, these are sticking plasters on a huge great wound that he has had a huge hand in.”
The Windsor walkabout, which William reportedly invited Harry and Meghan to, was the first time the so-called 'Fab Four' had been seen interacting together since the Sussexes’ royal exit in early 2020.
But Russell suggested that this meeting had done little to patch up the long-term damage caused by the alleged feud between Harry and William that had resulted from the former royals’ controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“We don’t know, but one would assume, is he really regretting his conduct over the last couple of years?” he continued.
“I don’t know where they go from here and I can only see it getting worse. This book, even if it’s just a percentage of what we think it’s going to be, it’s going to be even worse for him.
“I don’t see a way back for them.”
This comes as attention has begun to turn to the release of Prince Harry ’s memoir, which is expected later this year.
Publishers have remained tight-lipped over plans for the autobiography’s release after the Queen’s death, but royal fears were reportedly raised at the time of its announcement, when Harry stressed it would be a “firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
