Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are hoping to repair their soured relationship with Prince William by renting an apartment in Kensington Palace, according to a report.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly keen to “make amends” with the Prince and Princess of Wales as the rift between the two rages on.
But despite their alleged gesture, Harry is concerned that the move would make him a “prisoner of the palace,” a royal insider told OK! Magazine.
“He and Meghan are offering to rent an apartment at Kensington Palace and furnish it themselves,” a source told the outlet.
“He hopes that will please William and show that they’re serious about coming back. Harry doesn’t want to become a prisoner of the palace.”
Despite this, royal experts believe that a reconciliation between the feuding brothers isn’t on the cards anytime soon.
“I see no signs of that whatsoever,” Talk TV’s Royal Editor Sarah Hewson told Sky News Australia. “The damage, the wounds are so deep it’s gonna take an awful lot and an awful long time to heal those wounds.”
“And, at this stage, I just don’t see any evidence whatsoever that there is a desire on either side, yet, to put an end to this and to forgive and forget,” Hewson added.
The Post has reached out to Kensington Palace for comment.
Tensions between the Firm and the Sussexes had reached an all-time high after the couple hightailed it across the pond in a desperate quest for “privacy.”
The decision to step down as senior members of the royal family was followed by a move to Canada, before the pair ultimately settled down in Montecito, California.
The pair were recently evicted from Frogmore Cottage by King Charles, who reportedly gave the royal digs to his scandal-scarred brother Prince Andrew.
The Sussexes officially moved out of their former British residence in June, sending items that had been left at the Windsor abode back to their Montecito, California home.
The Invictus Games founder and the former actress now no longer have a place to stay when they visit the UK and will have to stay with friends or at a hotel instead.
