Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are just days away from officially exiting the royal family, it seems tensions in their relationship with the rest of Harry's family have cooled at least somewhat.

“Things are in a better space now between the couple and the royal family,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. They said that, currently, the family is working through some long-standing tensions between them. “While of course there have been tensions, the family is getting through it.”

“It was a difficult decision for Harry and Meghan. They love their family, but given the relentless onslaught by the media, they did what they thought was right for their family and son," the source said of their decision to leave the royal family.

William, meanwhile, was reportedly upset that Meghan and Harry decided to announce their decision publicly before working out the details with the family. “William was unhappy that things weren’t handled privately,” the source claimed to ET.

Tensions reportedly existed between Harry and his brother even before Harry and Meghan announced that they would be leaving the royal family. In a 2019 interview, Harry confirmed that there was some truth the rumors of a feud between them.

“Part of this role and part of this job and this family being under the pressure that it’s under… inevitably, you know, stuff happens," Harry said in the interview, suggesting that his role as a royal had contributed to some of the tensions inside the family.

"But, look, we’re brothers. We’ll always be brothers. We’re certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and, as I know, he will always be there for me," Harry added.

When Harry and Meghan returned to the U.K. for their final set of royal engagements, some reporting suggested that they didn't receive the warm reunion they were hoping. Ultiamtely, though, their decision to leave the royal family may lessen some of the lingering tensions inside the family.

When they first announced their decision to leave, it seemed like the queen and the rest of the royal family were taken aback. Eventually, though, the family wound up on the same page, and developed a plan that would allow Harry and Meghan to step back from the royal family.

While the source did not say that the tension was completely resolved, it sounds like things are less heightened and intense than they once were, and that may mean Harry and Meghan can still have some sort of relationship with the family.
