Following the damaging accusations made against his brother as part of the latest instalment of his Netflix docu-series, it is believed that Prince Harry does in fact still hope to reconcile with his family.
A source close to the Duke of Sussex, 38, claims that although he's delighted by how he and wife Meghan Markle, 41, have come across in the controversial series, he does wish for recent clashes with his father King Charles and brother William to be left in the past.
"The reason for doing this was to share their truth on their lives. He feels it told the story he wanted the world to hear and has absolutely no regrets," an inside source told the Mirror.
"Harry and Meghan hope family members and courtiers will watch or, more importantly, listen to their comments. But they know nothing they speak about will be addressed in public.
"They hope it may prompt a greater understanding from the King and the [Waleses] of how Harry and Meghan feel about their experiences in England."
The royal insider reportedly also claimed that despite the fact his upcoming 416-page memoir Spare is on the horizon, Prince Harry "loves" his father and brother, and hopes to make amends.
The Prince also allegedly hopes that his family will watch the six-part series in order for them to "understand" wife Meghan's "truth" of what the pair went through when trying to manage their relationship as working royals prior to their departure to the States.
It has been reported that the King or the Prince of Wales have no plans to watch the widely-discussed series, the duo not yet having formally responded to the accusations made against The Firm in it.
Acquaintances of William however fear that the allegations posed in Harry and Meghan's documentary are too serious to come back from – their attack having gone too far for hope of reconciliation.
One pal of the heir to the throne told the Daily Mail: "All relationships are built on trust but for members of the Royal Family, who live their life in the spotlight, doubly so.
"The prince is a very private man and what Harry is doing is the anathema of everything he believes. On that alone, many believe it is unlikely he will ever be able to repair his relationship with them. Too much water has gone under the bridge."
Amongst the damning allegations against his family in the second and final instalment of the six-part series was Prince Harry's claim that his brother William had "screamed and shouted" at him during a meeting about his and wife Meghan's future way of working.
As well as this, Harry admitted that the decision to leave the UK was his decision and Meghan "never asked" to, and Meghan claimed she 'wasn't allowed' to go somewhere for help with suicidal thoughts.
On top of this, Harry released details of a private phone call with the Queen about the Sussexes' decision to leave the UK before he claiming he and his wife were blocked from meeting with the late Monarch.
Meghan also appears to accuse Prince William of being involved in the leaking of a royal aide's messages.
"It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me, and my father say things that just simply weren't true, and my grandmother, you know, quietly sit there, and sort of take it all in," said Harry.
Duchess of Sussex also claimed that it was the late Queen Elizabeth II and then-Prince Charles who suggested she write to her father following their estrangement.
She said: "I reached out to her Majesty and said this is what's going on, what do you want me to do? I want to… Whatever advice you have. "But ultimately it was suggested by the Queen and the Prince of Wales that I write my dad a letter and i had gone to great lengths to get that letter to my dad discreetly."
Since the final three episodes of the series aired last week, royal author Katie Nicholl has told OK! that the family should be worried about fresh allegations in the form of Prince Harry's upcoming memoir.
The author of new book 'The New Royals' explained: "I don’t think the royal family are terrified by anything, least of all of what is going to come next in Harry’s autobiography.
"But concerned, apprehensive? Yes. Ready to respond? Quite possibly. Wearied by all of this? Absolutely."
Katie also believes the imminent book – set to be released next month – could see a response from the Royal Family, who have remained largely silent over the controversial documentary since its initial release on December 8.
Author of 'The New Royals' Katie was covering the subject the much-debated Harry & Meghan when she told us: "Whilst I think in this instance the palace's lack of response is the right thing, there needs to be a shot across the bow from the palace to Harry and Meghan [Markle] that this is not going to be tolerated and this has to stop," she said, alluding to the pair's many claims.
"We know there is going to be an autobiography and I wonder if we will hear from the palace after the publication of the autobiography. I wouldn't rule it out."
