King Charles has been urged to be the "bigger person" when it comes to fixing the ongoing feud with Prince Harry, but former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond has explained why she doesn't think this will happen.

Prince Harry has been at loggerheads with the Royal Family for some time, with strained relations looking unlikely to come to an end soon.

Harry now resides in the US with Meghan Markle and their two children, with California recently becoming his primary place of residence.

Ms Bond has explained two main reasons why the King won't be the "bigger person" - Harry's criticism of Queen Camilla and the Princess of Wales.

Speaking to Radio Times, the expert said: "The particular hurt over how Harry criticised, viciously really, [Queen] Camilla and [Princess] Catherine."

Discussing the fact the King didn't meet with Harry last week, she added: "I just think as Charles is recovering from cancer, once again, it's almost like the emotional strength to deal with 'The Harry Problem' just isn't there.

"So, they didn't meet. I just think it's incredibly sad."

Also speaking on her view that the King should be the "bigger person", she added: "Personally as a parent, I think there are times when you've got to be the bigger person [and] you've got to open your arms and say 'you've been a silly sod, you really have and we've got quite a lot to work out. But for now, lets have a hug'."

Speaking of Harry's criticism of his stepmother and sister-in-law, this came in the form of his tell-all memoir, which was released last year.

Harry released Spare worldwide on January 10, 2023 - just one day after Princess Kate's 41st birthday.

Harry wrote that he and Prince William asked their father to not marry the now-Queen Camilla, whom he tied the knot with in 2005.

The 39-year-old also detailed how he initially feared Camilla would be like "all the evil stepmothers in the stories".

He wrote: "I remember wondering...if she would be cruel to me; if she would be like all the wicked stepmothers in the stories."

Harry wrote about the Princess of Wales in his memoir Spare, including details about her rifts with Meghan.

According to Harry, Kate messaged Meghan to complain that Princess Charlotte’s dress for her 2018 wedding did not fit correctly.

Writing in Spare, Kate reportedly wrote: "Charlotte’s dress is too big, too long, too baggy. She cried when she tried it on at home."
