It has been reported that Prince Harry has experienced a "great deal of frostiness" from some relatives in the last week while he's been in the U.K for his grandfather, Prince Philip's, funeral...
And it's something that sadly hasn't come as much of a surprise considering the turbulent last few months for the prince.
Here's the full story...
Now, since marrying former actress, Meghan Markle, in 2018, Prince Harry has been thrown into the spotlight in ways he never imagined...
Along with Meghan, of course.
The pair have since formally stepped down from their positions within the royal family...
And they are currently residing in Los Angeles where they're raising their son, Archie, and expecting their second child.
But they recently decided to speak out about their terrible experiences with the royal family and British press in the last few years...
To none other than Oprah Winfrey.
It's the interview that everyone has been talking about.
Their 2-hour-long interview aired on CBS on Sunday, March 7th and viewers watched on in shock as some mind-blowing allegations were made against the monarchy.
Meghan Markle was SUICIDAL and the royal family DENIED her mental health treatment, but she persevered and her openness will SAVE LIVES. 🙏🏽— Cleavon MD (@Cleavon_MD) March 8, 2021
Every 40 seconds, a person dies by suicide
It was claimed that senior members of the family had refused to get Meghan professional help when she was experiencing suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy with Archie.
Meghan also addressed that incident with her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.
Headlines were made in 2018 when Meghan allegedly "made Kate cry" in a row about bridesmaids' dresses in the days before her and Harry's wedding - well, in her chat with Oprah, Meghan claimed that Kate was the one to make her cry.
Though she did stress that Kate had apologized and that she had "forgiven her."
She also addressed the ongoing issues of racism within the monarchy.
Meghan claimed an unnamed senior member of the Royal family raised "concerns" about how dark Archie's skin would be before his birth.
"In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of, 'you won't be given security, not gonna be given a title' and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born."
Harry then explained that he "had to get out," though when he did he was "cut off financially" when he and Meghan needed help the most...
He also added that they've since been relying on his inheritance from Princess Diana.
"I was totally cut off financially. My family cut me off – if I didn't have what my mom left me, we wouldn't have been able to do this."
"All I wanted to do was keep my family safe."
Meghan then insisted that they never had any plans at first to quit the U.K - she said the intention was to "do this forever" and that she told the royal family to "use me as much as you like."
Quite predictably, opinion was well and truly divided over the interview...
All I can say is that I completely understand. My heart and soul goes out to her. 💔❤— Sunshine, MPH 🏳️🌈🔭🔬☣ (@CallSignWhisker) March 8, 2021
With a vast majority feeling sympathetic for Harry and Meghan over what they've allegedly endured in the last few years.
But on the other hand...
Another lie exposed, they're coming thick and fast: https://t.co/lImQ73Dw33— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 8, 2021
People have been slamming the pair for agreeing to take part in Oprah's interview and have even been brandishing them as "liars"... including Piers Morgan, of course!
It's undoubtedly caused a lot of drama...
And the couple have been the talk of the entire world in the last month since the interview aired.
But everyone has been distracted by the sad news that came on April 9th.
Harry's grandfather, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, had passed away at the age of ninety-nine.
Philip's royal funeral went ahead on April 17th...
Has there ever been a more heart-breaking picture of The Queen? The cruel separation and loneliness suffered by so many in this pandemic, now endured by the world’s most famous woman as she says goodbye to her husband of 73 years. Just devastating. 💔— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) April 17, 2021

And the world watched on sadly as Queen Elizabeth sat by herself in Windsor Castle to say goodbye to her husband of seventy-three years due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Only thirty guests were allowed to attend.
Harry flew to London from Los Angeles to attend the funeral and pay his respects.
Meghan was strongly advised to not fly during her third trimester of pregnancy so she stayed in L.A with Archie and watched the funeral live from home.
It was reported that Harry had spent a few days in London before the funeral to try and break the ice with his estranged family members...
And much to the world's delight, Harry and William were seen walking together and chatting following the funeral service.
A source told The Sun:
"It's early days but you'd hope this is exactly the first step Philip would have wished for," and that "It is not known what was said behind closed doors and when the cameras were turned off," but "Harry and William appeared cordial as the cameras rolled and that seemed to pave the way for Charles to join them when everyone had left."
Is this a sign that the cracks in Harry's relationship with his family are finally on the mend?
Well, according to the Daily Mail, it's certainly not.
It has been reported that Harry faced "a great deal of frostiness" from the extended royal family since returning home to the U.K in the aftermath of his and Meghan's Oprah interview.
There are even claims that Princess Anne, Prince Edward, and Edward's wife Sophie did not acknowledge him before or during Philip's funeral service.
The royals haven't taken much accountability for Harry and Meghan's claims in the interview, and a source says "They [the royals] are still very upset. They are putting on a united front for the Queen. They all think he has behaved appallingly."
So, there you have it.
Who knows when the royal family will decide to forgive Harry and Meghan and put all of this drama behind them.
