Prince Harry has been publicly critical of the Royal Family since stepping down as a working royal in 2020

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been warned to "repair the damage" within the Royal Family, amid reports that the couple plan to "reconcile" with their family.

After leaving working royal life in 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have unleashed several damning accounts of their family, including a six-episode Netflix documentary and Prince Harry's tell-all memoir, Spare.

New reports from the Sussex camp suggest the Duke intends to "call the King" this Christmas, in an attempt to heal the royal rift that he left when he moved to California.

Sources have also said however that the Sussexes "blame the Royal Family" for losses in brand deals for the couple, one example being with fashion house Dior.

The couple claim that they had "built up a relationship" with the fashion house, with Prince Harry opting to wear a Dior suit to his father King Charles' Coronation in May this year.

However, Queen Camilla was spotted wearing the designer after the event, and reports state conversations were "dropped" between them and Dior.

Speaking to GB News, Showbiz and Royal Reporter Kinsey Schofield reacted to the claims and stated that the Duke and Duchess must "repair the damage" between them and Harry's family.

She added that Dior choosing The Crown actress Meg Bellamy to be their new face of the brand "rubs salt in the open wound" for Meghan Markle.

Schofield told GB News host Mark Dolan: "Meghan's team doesn't appear to know what to do at this point. The consensus is that they need to repair the damage within the Royal Family.

"24 hours later, Page Six releasing this story that Harry intends to call the King at Christmas for some sort of reconciliation, he plans to also talk to Meghan and the kids.

"So the idea that they are reporting brands don't want to work with them, the only only way to clear the air is to reconcile with the Royal Family. Then Prince Harry intends on calling the King to reconcile at Christmas.

"That's the suspicious timing."

Discussing the Dior snub for Meghan Markle, Schofield explained: "Rumours were circulating that Meghan was becoming the new face of the brand, so that source is stressing that it's all very suspicious timing.

"To add salt to the open wound, the actress playing Kate Middleton, Meg Bellamy in The Crown was announced as the new face of the brand."
