The world was watching as Prince Harry reunited with the royal family for Prince Philip's funeral and now, Radar has learned what really happened behind closed doors and it wasn't pretty.
A palace source tells Radar, Harry felt "ambushed" by his father Prince Charles and his brother Prince William during their unscheduled two-hour meeting at Windsor Castle after Philip's service on Saturday.
“The meeting after the family laid Prince Philip to rest was not scheduled. Harry felt ambushed by his dad and brother which is no way to start a peace process,” the insider reveals.
Our source says Harry wasn't willing to make amends in his wife Meghan Markle's absence. “Harry has a long list of grievances and demands and isn’t willing to negotiate or talk about the future without Meghan being part of the process," they say.
As Radar reported, Meghan stayed behind at the couple's $14.6 million Montecito, California home instead of traveling across the pond with her husband. Despite “every effort” to accompany Harry, she reportedly couldn't get clearance from her doctor due to her pregnancy.
Meghan and Harry are expecting their second child -- a little girl -- in early summer.
Despite Harry's conversation with Charles and William, Radar is told the communication between the three royal family members was “unproductive.”
“Now to you negotiate peace with a couple who are willing to burn the whole place down? Harry and Meghan think they are coming to the table in a position of power and they have nothing else to lose," our palace source says. "Everything, from titles to money to security has already been taken away. If the family is serious about making peace they could start by returning everything they removed.”
While Harry plans on Meghan being a part of the negotiation process, another source tells us that despite playing family peacemaker, William's wife Kate Middleton will not be present during the conversation.
"Kate wants what is best for her husband and the royal family. She loves Harry but doesn’t get involved in this sort of stuff,” the family insider reveals. “It isn’t Kates place to decide which family members get titles and money.”
The royal family rift came well before Harry and Meghan's sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey last month but going on national television exposed the tense relationship to the public.
During the explosive interview, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex accused someone inside the palace of racism but wouldn't disclose the person's identity. Meghan also discussed how she didn't feel supported by Harry's family and was so unhappy that she even contemplated suicide.
