In the last months before her death, Queen Elizabeth II is said to have tried desperately to mediate between her son Charles and Prince Harry.

But their efforts were in vain.

London – Prince Harry (38) has always been considered the favorite grandson of Queen Elizabeth II († 96), despite numerous antics of the prince in his youth, the connection with his grandmother was very close.

Even when Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle (41) turned their backs on Great Britain and the British royal family in 2020, contact did not break off.

But even the Queen could not ensure peace between Prince Harry and his father Charles.

After moving to the US: did Harry and Meghan have financial problems?

"We have a very special relationship," Prince Harry gushed about his connection with the Queen in an interview with NBC's "Today" show in April. "We talk about things she can't talk to anyone else about." apparently a sensitive topic also played a major role in their conversations: dear money.

At the time, Harry had complained that his family had cut off his money supply.

Harry told her that Charles would no longer take his calls.”

When the Queen asked her son Charles why he was no longer responding to Harry's calls, he simply replied, "Because I'm not a bank."

Fear of Prince Harry's memoirs: Royal family broke off contact

But not only today's king, Charles III, refused to call his son after Prince Harry's break with the royal family, Prince William (40) also largely broke off contact with his brother.

Even more than before Prince Harry's memoir "Spare", which will be released on January 10, 2023, the British royal family is currently trembling before the Netflix documentary about Harry and Meghan, which "will be worse than the royals can imagine".

From December 8th, the first three episodes of the six-part documentary "Harry & Meghan" should be available from the streaming provider.

It is doubtful whether the documentary will bring Prince Harry and Papa Charles closer together again.
