In the ongoing saga of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's strained relationship with the British monarchy, new reports indicate a divergence in how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wish to proceed. According to sources, while Prince Harry appears ready to move forward, Meghan Markle seeks a more formal resolution through a sit-down discussion with the royal family.

The couple's departure from their royal duties and subsequent relocation to the United States in 2020 marked the beginning of a highly publicized feud with the royal family. Despite the public airing of grievances, Prince Harry reportedly desires to move past the discord. Meghan, however, remains hurt and hopes for a direct conversation to address the issues.

"Harry is more willing to move on, let's just say that. It's not a case of Meghan being difficult; she genuinely feels hurt and would like some kind of sit-down to hash things through," an unnamed source told Express. "But that's not something the other side is willing to consider at this time."

The tensions were notably exacerbated by the couple's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, where they accused the royal family of cutting them off financially and raised concerns about the color of their then-unborn son's skin. These claims were further amplified in their Netflix docuseries "Harry & Meghan" and Prince Harry's memoir "Spare."

"Harry and Meghan are expecting an apology, and so are senior members of the Royal Family. It's got to the point now where both sides can't see where they've gone wrong, and there's no meeting in the middle. It's a stalemate," the insider continued.

Meghan Markle's absence at significant royal events has been conspicuous. She did not attend King Charles' coronation or accompany Prince Harry to a special service in May marking the Invictus Games' 10th anniversary. This continued distance fuels speculation and criticism from various quarters.

Angela Levin, Prince Harry's biographer, attributes much of Harry's bitterness towards his family and country to Meghan. "He was a little bitter when I met him, but he's now full of it. I think Meghan is a lot to blame, and she's poured into him all the things that are terribly wrong and that she's made him really dislike his own family," Levin said.

Adding to the speculation, there are rumors that the Sussexes might consider a return to the U.K. Prince Harry, reportedly frustrated and angry over being ignored by his family, has been trying to reconnect. However, this potential move is seen by some as an indication of their declining popularity in the United States.

British socialite and TV personality Lizzie Cundy commented on the possible return, stating, "If they relocate back to the U.K., it would mean that they had lost all popularity in the States."

The Sussexes' quest for reconciliation or closure continues to be a point of contention. Meghan's desire for a direct dialogue contrasts with the apparent reluctance from the royal family to engage in such a discussion at this time. This impasse leaves both sides waiting for the other to make the first move, prolonging the uncertainty and tension.

While Prince Harry appears ready to move past the conflicts, Meghan's call for a sit-down meeting underscores the depth of her feelings and the complexity of their situation. As both sides remain entrenched in their positions, the path to any form of reconciliation remains unclear. The ongoing stalemate suggests that without mutual willingness to engage, the rift may continue to define their relationship with the monarchy.
