Prince Harry suggests he may be seeking a reconciliation with Royal Family

No other member of the Royal Family has spoken out as much as Prince Harry.

And you can understand the Palace’s sense of trepidation about an interview billed as Harry “on his father, family and future”.

But this time his words are striking not for their content, but their tone.

Harry’s language is far less combative and much more conciliatory.

Prince Harry suggested his father’s cancer diagnosis could lead to reconciliation

From the snowy slopes of Whistler, perhaps a hint that frosty family relations are thawing.

We learn he was “grateful” to see his father after his cancer diagnosis, how he loves his family and hopes to return to the UK as much as he can.

This could be as early as May, with an event planned at St Paul’s Cathedral to mark 10 years of the Invictus Games.

More on Prince Harry

And although he’s had plenty to say in the past, this time he kept quiet about the King.

What is perhaps more interesting is Prince Harry’s response when asked whether he’d thought about US citizenship.

It was, we hear, something he’d “considered”, but right now not a “high priority”. Perhaps not surprising.

Prince Harry suggested his father’s cancer diagnosis could lead to reconciliation

Becoming a US citizen would mean renouncing his royal title. And although that wouldn’t impact the line of succession, it would be a huge move.

Harry and Meghan are in Canada to showcase and support next year’s inaugural winter Invictus Games.

But their appearance comes at a pivotal moment.

Prince Harry arrives at Clarence House to see the King

Having kept relatively quiet, the last two weeks have seen a Sussex resurgence – from a rebranded website to Meghan’s return to podcasting.

They’ve already faced hostile headlines and have hit back – insisting they won’t be broken by the negative newspaper coverage.

This is the couple’s attempt to positively promote their work and their public image.

But talk of a wider royal reconciliation could also be a chance to reset the rhetoric.
