It has been reported that Charles is hoping to reunite William and Harry next month at the Invictus Games

A royal commentator has claimed that King Charles "never closed the door" on his son Prince Harry amid reports that he hopes to "reconcile" the brothers next month at the Invictus Games.

The pair's relationship has been estranged since Harry moved overseas to the US with his wife Meghan Markle in 2020 and launched a series of attacks on the Royal Family in the form of interviews and his memoir Spare.

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams said that the King was also hoping to reconcile the pair when Harry returned to England

"It is a very important anniversary because service of Thanksgiving is being held, to celebrate 10 years of the Invictus Games and this of course was a remarkable thing that Harry founded.

"One of the problems is that it will be overshadowed by whether Meghan will be there, I would think not. And then again as to whether or not he will see his father will King Charles play a role in peacemaking?"

The rift is very deep, as we all know the Sussexes for four years have attacked the Royal Family and William is naturally suspicious because he doesn't trust Harry.

"With very good reason because of the attacks. However, given the fact that King Charles is undergoing treatment for cancer and given the fact that Catherine is seriously ill, preventative chemotherapy is, I should think, desperately stressful for him.

"If you made that courageous video message to the nation, will they get together? I suspect the answer to this lies in private talks privately that we don't know about.

"So we know that William was in touch with Harry after the video message. The reports were the Sussexes didn't know of Catherine's condition before then."
