Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been branded “arrogant” over reports that they planned a year of reconciliation with the royals but only after the release of their Netflix series and the Duke’s memoir. The Sussexes reportedly wanted to end the rift with the royals after the show and book came out this year.

But their plans have reportedly been thrown up in the air by the death of the late Queen and they are now said to want to make changes to their two upcoming projects over fears truth bombs on the new King and Queen Consort could end reconciliation hopes.

Royal author Robert Jobson said the couple’s timing was “appalling as always”.

The royal expert told The Sun: “It is also completely arrogant because they are assuming they can win back the trust of Harry’s father and brother. But that trust has gone forever.

“Harry needs to remember he is now dealing with the head of state — not just his dad.

“If they disrespect the King, they are not only disrespecting the man, but also the institution.”

Mr Jobson’s comments come after a source told the newspaper that 2023 was to be Harry and Meghan’s year of reconciliation.

A source said: “Clearly, this reconciliation attempt would never work if they have been critical of the new monarch, or both.”

Harry and Meghan, who are living in California after quitting royal duties in 2020, have faced tensions with the royals in the last few years.

The Duke has been embroiled in an ongoing rift with Prince William, while he also has a fractured relationship with King Charles.

The Sussexes hit out at the monarchy in their Oprah Winfrey interview in March 2021.

Harry laid bare his rifts with his older brother and father.

He also attacked Charles’s parenting skills in further controversial comments soon after the Oprah interview during an appearance on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast.

The Sussexes were recently united with the royals in their grief for the late Queen.

Harry and Meghan were already in the UK as part of a trip to Europe when she passed away on September 8.

They remained in Britain until the state funeral on September 19 before heading back to the US.

Express.co.uk has contacted representatives for the Sussexes for comment.
