Meghan Markle, 39, has not been reached out to by the Royal Family following the Sussexes explosive interview. Prince William and Harry spoke over the weekend, according to CBS journalist Gayle King. However, she revealed that the talk between the two brothers was “unproductive”.

Ms King told CBS This Morning: “I am not trying to break news but I did actually call them to see how they were feeling and it’s true, Harry has talked to his brother and his father too.

“The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive.”

However, she added, the royals “are glad they at least started a conversation.”

Ms King also said: “And I think what it is still upsetting to them is that the Palace keeps saying they want to work it out privately yet they believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging against Meghan still.

“No one in the Royal Family has talked to Meghan yet at this particular time and I think it is frustrating for them to see there is a racial conversation about the Royal Family when all they wanted all along for the royals to intervene and tell the press to stop with the unfair inaccurate false stories that have a racial slant.”

She added: “And until you can’t acknowledge that I think it’s going to be difficult to move forward, but they both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family, at the end of the day this is Harry’s family.”

Ms King added that despite the conversations not bearing fruit, the Sussexes were “glad” dialogue had started.

After the couple’s bombshell interview, the Queen said in a statement that the issues raised, including race, would be “addressed by the family privately”.

The couple had accused an unnamed royal, not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh, of raising concerns about how dark their son Archie’s skin tone would be, before he was born.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are 'bitter' claims Levin

The popularity of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan has tumbled in Britain and has never been lower following their interview, according to a poll on Friday,

Harry bemoaned his family’s reaction to the couple’s decision to step back from official duties.

The tell-all interview has plunged the 1,000-year-old monarchy into its greatest crisis this century, and according to a YouGov poll, the standing of the two royals has also taken a big hit in the aftermath.

It found 48 percent of the 1,664 respondents had a negative attitude toward Harry compared to 45 percent with a positive view, the first time his net favourability rating had been negative, and a fall of 15 points from a week earlier.

Meanwhile, only three in 10 people had a positive view of Meghan, while 58 percent had a negative opinion.

As with other polls conducted since the interview, there was a divide between generations, with a majority of those aged 18 to 24 liking Harry and Meghan and those over 65 overwhelmingly having negative feelings towards them.

The only other member of the family to see their popularity fall was Harry’s father, heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles. The survey said 42 percent now had a negative view of him compared to 49 percent with a positive opinion.
