PRINCE Charles is reportedly "desperate for a reconciliation" with his son Harry - but William is feeling more cautious and hesitant after the brothers' Megxit rift.

Harry, 36, and William, 38, met face-to-face for the first time in a year at Prince Philip's funeral at Windsor on Saturday.

A source told Vanity Fair that Charles is "desperate" to reconcile with Harry.

William, however, is reportedly feeling more cautious - hoping that he can restore his relationship with Harry over time.

The source reportedly said: "William needs to know he can trust Harry and that private conversations will stay private."

Harry was reunited with brother ­William for two hours after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, sparking hopes of peace between them.

They joined dad Charles for the first time since Harry and wife Meghan left the Royal Family and moved to America.

The couple's US TV interview with Oprah Winfrey also threatened to tear the family apart.

Charles had private talks with his warring sons after the funeral.

The three met up away from the cameras following Saturday’s televised service.

They remained together for two hours at Windsor Castle as they mingled with family members on its Quadrangle.

It sparked hopes that the devastating rift between the brothers could one day be healed.


Harry may now stay on for the Queen’s 95th birthday this Wednesday.

He has also said he will join his older brother for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s memorial statue at Kensington Palace.

Royal insiders hope the ceremony on July 1 could also help ease the rift as they stand together on what would have been their mother's 60th birthday.

A source said: “It’s early days but you’d hope this is exactly the first step Philip would have wished for.”

Harry had accused William and Charles of being “trapped” in the Royal Family in the TV interview with Oprah.

Talks between the trio after details of the talk had been leaked were described as “unproductive”.

On Saturday, millions watching on TV saw William and Harry speaking to each other as they walked side by side away from St George’s Chapel after the funeral.

They spoke for about four minutes — having been deliberately kept apart during the procession an hour earlier.
