Insiders said that Prince Charles was delighted with the arrival of Lili, who ‘may help to heal the rift’
Prince Charles’s relationship with Prince Harry has apparently 'turned a corner', with hopes that the birth of Lilibet Diana may help to bring the Royal Family back together. Insiders claimed that the father and son are now in ‘regular contact’ and are headed towards a complete reconciliation.
There was much tension between the father and son after the latter's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey along with his wife Meghan Markle. Apart from this, the Prince had spoken about his father during a podcast interview with Dax Shepard where he explained that his father's attitude towards him was a result of his grandmother, the Queen's, attitude towards him as a mother. He went on to call it a cycle of "genetic pain and suffering". This apparently only added to the existing tension and insiders had lost all hope of reconciliation until Lilibet Diana's birth.
Metro reported that while Prince Charles is said to have only met Harry’s son Archie twice, he was delighted with the arrival of Lili, who ‘may help to heal the rift’. The Prince of Wales had described the birth of his fifth grandchild as ‘happy news’ during a visit to a production plant for the Mini at Cowley near Oxford yesterday. He spoke to the gathering and said, "The development of technology like electric vehicles, or green hydrogen for that matter for heavy transport, is vital for maintaining the health of our world for future generations, something I’m only too aware of today having recently become a grandfather for the fifth time. And such happy news really does remind one of the necessity of continued innovation in this area, especially around sustainable battery technology, in view of the legacy we bequeath to our grandchildren," reported Metro.
Prince Harry is expected to reunite with his family again when he travels home for the unveiling of a Princess Diana statue on July 1. It is understood that Meghan will remain at home with Archie and Lilibet, reported Metro.
