A royal source said Prince William and father Charles met together with Harry to make sure everyone fully understood each other.
“It is clear that after the worldwide failure of the interview Oprah’s trust must be rebuilt,” a senior royal insider told E-mail online.
“There was no official wake-up after the funeral, but Charles, William and Harry got the chance to speak and meet face to face after months apart.
“They were only able to be together for a short time outdoors with Covid’s restrictions and also had no staff, including the high-ranking courtiers, eavesdrop on what was being said.
“It is important to Charles and William that they are both there together.
“It means nothing that is said about could be misinterpreted in the future.”

According to another royal source, the negotiations were held as a “little step” towards reconciliation following Harry and Meghan’s all-recounting interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
“There is a lot of pain and hurt for both sides, so this reconciliation will happen in small steps,” the source told Mail Online.

A source said: “Harry was in the cold after Oprah and then when details of private family chats were revealed to Gayle King, it was the last straw.
“Some family members couldn’t believe what he did, but got the feeling that with the Duke and his family’s death drawn together, there was a need for conversation.”
The magazine claims William spent “alone time” with Harry walking around the Queen’s private garden after Saturday’s ceremony.
It also stated that Prince Charles was “desperate” about a reconciliation with his son while William was “more hesitant”.
A source added: “William needs to know that he can trust Harry and that private chats will remain private.”
The source also said that William and other family members “have some very strong feelings about some of the things Harry and Meghan said on Oprah”.
They added: “Everything needs to be said, but this is not the occasion and everyone respects that.
“It will take longer than being awake to sort things out, but this is hopefully a start.”

Dickie Arbiter – the most famous of the Queen’s former press secretaries – said Charles would want his sons to ‘break the ice’.
