Prince Harry has asked for a mediator to be brought in to help “clear the air” with his family, leaving Camilla to “splash her tea”, according to a new book.

In The New Royals, writer and journalist Katie Nicholl said an unnamed family friend revealed the Duke of Sussex had met his father earlier this year to help mend their relationship.

However, the meeting is said to have done little to resolve their rift, with Harry and Meghan reportedly not only late for the meeting, but offering to use a family mediator.

In an extract published in Vanity Fair, Ms Nicholl described the meeting as “more awkward than a hearty tea with the Queen”.

Camilla is said to have told Harry the idea of ​​a mediator was “ridiculous” and they would work together as a family to resolve their differences.

The family friend said: “Harry actually suggested they use a mediator to try and work things out, which left Charles somewhat bemused and Camilla sloshing around in her tea.”

The book also claimed that Prince William and Kate were “relieved” after learning that Harry and Meghan would be moving to the US.

Ms Nicol claimed the Prince and Princess of Wales, then the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, felt the “drama was gone” after the Sussexes announced their departure.

However, the Queen reportedly felt “hurt and exhausted” by the move and was “disappointed” when the couple did not return to the UK with Archie and Lilibeth for her annual Sandringham “sleepover” with grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The source told Nicole: “The Queen was very hurt and said to me, ‘I don’t know, I don’t care and I don’t want to think about it anymore.’

King Charles now wants to heal the rift between Harry and the rest of the family, according to the book.

In his first televised address to the nation, the new king made it clear he was extending an olive branch to Sussex.

He said: “I also want to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives abroad.”

The couple happened to be visiting the UK when the Queen died, meaning they were present during the national period of mourning.

Harry put on a united front with William as they greeted well-wishers outside Windsor Castle with their wives.
