Harry and Meghans Royal Family rift still seems very wide, expert claims

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to drift apart from the Royal Family as the "rift" still seems "very wide at the moment," according to a royal expert.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they would be stepping back from senior royal duties on January 8, 2020.

Since their explosive departure, the relationship between the ex-royal couple and the royal family has continued to sour, particularly since the explosive Oprah Winfrey interview earlier this year.

Harry and Meghan’s controversial chat with the talk show legend aired in the UK on March 8 and received a staggering 5,380 Ofcom complaints by the end of the month.

The TV show saw Harry and Meghan airing their complaints and feelings about the monarchy, including a claim that one member had made remarks of their son Archie's skin.

The Royal Family denied accusations of racism.

Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal commentator and author, says the rift caused by their departure and that "destructive interview" doesn't seem to be fixed yet.

He told the Daily Star: "The rift in the royal family does not, so far as we know, appear to have been resolved.

"They initially had huge support after the extremely destructive interview with Oprah.

The commentator goes on to say that the Sussexes remain "unpredictable" in their decisions and movements.

The ex-royal has been working on the book that will detail his life growing up as part of the Firm.

In a statement confirming the upcoming release, the Duke said: "I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man, I have become.

“I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”
