Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have previously blamed the Royal Family for losing out on brand deals

Prince Harry is set to reconcile with the Royal Family this Christmas with a phone call to the King, reports suggest.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have continued their rocky relations since stepping down as working royals in 2020, going on to publicly criticise the firm in several outlets over recent years.

At the start of this year, Prince Harry released his tell-all memoir Spare, in which he made several allegations and claims against each member of his family, including brother Prince William, who he accused of a physical attack.

The couple also released a six-part documentary series with Netflix, where they spoke about life behind-the-scenes as royals, and why they decided to leave.

In recent years the Duke of Sussex has rarely visited the UK, flying across the pond solo for Queen Elizabeth II's funeral in 2022, and his father's Coronation in May this year.

Meghan Markle is yet to return to her husband's homeland since moving to Montecito, California for a more "private life".

Speaking to GB News, Showbiz and Royal Reporter Kinsey Schofield reacted to new claims that Prince Harry "intends to call the King" over Christmas.

Schofield criticised the timing of the story emerging from the Sussex camp, after other reports from their sources say the couple blame the royals for them losing out on brand deals.

Schofield told 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.

"You know 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."

Sources from the Sussex camp have told US publication Deadline that conversations were "shut down" by Dior after the royal couple had begun to build a relationship with the fashion house.

Meg Bellamy, who plays Princess Kate, Princess of Wales in the last season of the hit Netflix show, has become the new face of Dior, a deal which sources claim was lined up for the Duchess of Sussex.

Schofield revealed: "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.

"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."
