They touched on the reported rift between Harry, 36, and his brother William, before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex quit as senior royals.

Earlier this year The Sun revealed that William and Harry had barely spoken in months, other than to wish each other Happy Birthday.

Sources say William was stunned at Harry’s decision to throw away his duty and service to the crown, and furious that the Queen had been backed into a corner.

But in the latest interview on Harry and Meghan, the source said: "Family disagreements tend to lose heat with distance and time.

"[They] are hoping 2021 can be a time of healing not just for the world but for their family."

It comes after it was revealed the pair "don't regret" Megxit, as the royal is "finally doing what he wanted to do".

The pal told how they "love" their newfound freedom to work on special projects and life away from the "firm".

Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, stepped down as senior royals last year in a bombshell announcement.


The source told the magazine: "Meghan and Harry took a huge leap of faith to embark on their new life.

"Despite everything that has been going on this year, they don’t regret their move to the US.

"Harry was finally doing what he’d wanted to do for years, and to have Meghan and Archie with him was all he could have asked for."

The pair were allowed to keep one foot in the door on the condition Harry would meet with his grandma at a later date to discuss how the arrangement was working.

A 12-month review was due for March 31 this year – but the prince has been forced to cancel the plans as a mutant Covid strain ravages the UK and non-essential travel banned.

Royal sources say Harry is yet to re-arrange with the Queen, but is expected to do so in the coming weeks.

Harry was finally doing what he’d wanted to do for years, and to have Meghan and Archie with him was all he could have asked for.

It is thought the couple had wanted an "extension" on the interim period before they officially leave.

Prince Harry especially is keen to keep up with his military patronages – some of which could be at risk if he quits.

The pair left the UK first for Canada, and then settled in California.

They have signed up for big money deals with Spotify and Netflix as they forge their own way.

Experts think the couple’s Spotify podcast deal is another leap towards what could be a £1billion business empire in the US.

It follows a rumoured £100million deal with Netflix to make documentaries.

And while they have stepped down as senior working royals and are now making their own money, the pair are still expected to uphold the values of Her Majesty.

But senior advisors are reportedly concerned over the speed at which they have been signing megabucks deals with the likes of Netflix, Spotify and the Harry Walker Agency.
