Despite various recent reports suggesting that Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle are seemingly mending bridges with the royal family, one author has claimed the Sussexes are actually 'making little progress' reconciling.
Omid Scobie, one of the authors of the biography Finding Freedom, told Good Morning America the couple and the royal family want both sides to take 'accountability and ownership' for their role in the rift.
"When we speak to sources close to the couple and also sources close to the royal family, there is this feeling that very little progress is being made," he said.
"However, some feelings have subsided because time has done its things, so the door is very much open for those conversations to happen at some point."
An updated edition of Harry and Meghan biography Finding Freedom has made a string of fresh claims could also trigger further debate further about Harry and Meghan's relationship with the royals.
The new edition claimed the couple had considered naming the royal they alleged had made a racist comment about their son, Archie; that some royals were 'quietly pleased' the Duchess of Sussex missed Prince Philip's funeral, and that the Sussexes had 'no regrets' about quitting their royal roles
Despite the latest developments, one royal expert believed Harry and William were actually growing closer, regardless of the ongoing feud rumours. As are Meghan and Kate Middleton.
"I know that the four are talking with one another and they’re talking by Zoom [and by] FaceTime," Stewart Pearce, author of Diana: The Voice of Change told Us Weekly.
Stewart predicted the couples' conversations are "informal" with "Kate cooking dinner in the kitchen" and her husband "making cups of tea" as they chat with the Sussexes.
The author added that Harry and Meghan are "very different" from William and Kate, "Their lens on the world is highly individualised."
"And what’s remarkable is that they all totally respect [each other], but this lens is different."
