Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to return to Los Angeles, without any peace deal being struck between them and King Charles or Prince William, according to Gayle King.
The CBS Mornings host, and friend of the Duchess of Sussex, has been in the UK to cover the Queen’s funeral. She said that the turmoil caused by the Sussexes stems from when they stepped down from royal life and their subsequent bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey .
The royal couple have been seen alongside others in the Firm during their time of mourning – including being greeted members of the public in Windsor with the Prince and Princess of Wales.
However, it’s possible that whatever truce was formed during the mourning period, may come to end following the couple’s return to the US.
Speaking following the Queen’s funeral, outside Westminster Abbey, Gayle said: “There have been efforts on both sides … to sort of make this right.”
She then admitted that there hasn’t been any real rapprochement as she shared: “Big families always go through drama, always go through turmoil. It remains to be seen — are they going to be drawn closer together or are they going to be drawn apart?
“I have no idea, I have no inside information on that, but I will tell you this: It was good to see Harry standing with his family.”
During their brief stay in the UK, Harry and Meghan stayed at Frogmore Cottage, on the Windsor estate, but are said to have been planning to return to their Montecito home as soon as possible.
After two weeks away from home, it’s likely that the pair wish to return to their children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.
The royal couple were originally only supposed to be in the UK for a few days when they arrived here earlier this month, as they were scheduled to take part in several high profile engagements including the One Young World summit in Manchester and the WellChild Awards in London.
However during their stay, the Queen was sadly taken ill before the heartbreaking news came that she had died at the age of 96.
In the days since the death was announced, the young couple took comfort in one another as they grieved both privately and in the public eye at various official events in the run up to Monday’s funeral.
On several occasions Meghan and Harry were seen holding each other’s hands tightly in a show of solidarity.
