Tensions reportedly remain high between Prince Harry and his family, particularly his father Prince Charles, despite 'peace talks' taking place during his recent trip to the UK.

Royal correspondent Christina Garibaldi claims Harry and his father "barely communicated", and Charles is "still fuming" after the Sussexes tell-all Oprah interview.

“Prince Harry and Prince Charles did not resolve their differences when Harry returned to the UK," Christina wrote in US Weekly.

“They barely communicated. Charles is still fuming about Harry throwing shade at him and the royal family in the big interview and won’t let it drop.”

It comes as reports suggested the Prince of Wales may 'ditch' his son and wife Meghan Markle from the royal fold all together in order to 'cut the monarchy down'.

According to another royal expert, other members of the royal family are equally becoming "fed up" with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"As far as Harry and Meghan are concerned, I think they will be left to try and sort things out on their own," Russell Myers said on talkRADIO, during an interview about the future of Harry and Meghan within the monarchy.

"They have been a distraction for the family. The Oprah Winfrey interview went down like a lead balloon.

"There will be quite a lot of dissatisfaction in the camp and it remains to be seen whether they will ever be brought back in."

Last week, Angela Levin, royal biographer and author of Harry: Conversations with the Prince, revealed she thinks future king Charles has plans to thin out the current royal clan.

"Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they get from the taxpayer," she said on talkRADIO.

"I imagine that might be when Harry and Meghan are ditched from being members of the royal family."

Angela explained that the Queen, who recently turned 95, was the reason that the 'outer edge' or peripheral royals were still considered part of the monarchy and, as such, entitled to public funding.

Harry flew to the UK for Prince Philip's funeral last month and reportedly received a "frosty reception" from his family.

Talks between Charles, William and Harry were believed to have been "unproductive", and it is now thought Harry's next trip to the UK for the unveiling of his mother Diana's statue could be in doubt as a result.
