Prince Harry is said to still be trying to sort out a "reconciliation" with his family with an upcoming conversation with the monarch set to determine his future.
After years of feuding and severed ties, the Duke of Sussex is expected to be contacted by his father King Charles to discuss a potential reunion.
The news comes just days after a private phone call between the prince and the King was allegedly leaked last week after the duke contacted his father on his 75th birthday to wish him the best on his special day.
It's believed that Harry's gesture was a "turning point" in his frosty relationship with his father and that the monarch is now considering making amends with his son.
However, this wouldn't be the first time that a peace talk has happened but the last one did not go very well, the Mirror reports.
A source claims that: "William is disappointed about the phone call revelation, that should never be discussed outside of the family."
With William next in line to the throne, he may just be the determining factor in regards to his younger brother's status as the source added that it's possible he may never accept Harry "back into the fold".
The insider continued to tell OK Magazine that they believe the relationship between the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex has been destroyed forever with no chance of repair.
They claim that the "wedge" between the two princes will "derail a reconciliation with the King."

may be jetting to the UK to spend Christmas with the Royal Family for the first time in five years. But not so fast — one expert says reports of a royal reunion are overblown. “Sadly, reconciliation is not an option for the Windsors and Harry any time soon,” royal biographer Emily Andrews declared in an interview with Woman Magazine, picked up by The Mirror.
“slimmed-down” monarchy seems to be in a crisis ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their grand exit from the royal family in 2020.According to expert Gareth Russell, the couple’s departure has made it “very difficult” for them to come back into the royal family fold and take on engagements on behalf of Charles, 75.“Buckingham Palace could not have been any more clear than the initial announcement in 2020 of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex leaving, that the royal household would be quite willing or quite eager to have [them] back at some time in the future,” the commentator told GB News recently.When the Invictus Games founder, 39, and the former actress, 42, opted to leave the Firm at the time, they released a statement saying: “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.”“The Palace” author added that in 2020, Charles still “hoped” that “one day” Harry and Markle “would want to come back to work again.”He continued: “Unfortunately what has happened in the two or three years since that announcement has made it very difficult.”“In 2023, the monarchy was never intended to be functioning without the Duke of Sussex,” Russell said. “The King had always, I think, intended to have both of his sons and their spouses whoever they may be senior working royals.”When the former Prince of Wales ascended to the British throne in September 2022 upon the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth, he noted a desire to shrink the family to having just seven key senior members taking on major royal responsibilities.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's explosive Netflix series aimed bombshell accusations at the royal family but Kate Middleton seemingly responded in a subtle way - according to an expert. Prince William and Harry's relationship has been in a downward spiral since 2019 and has only worsened following the release of the Duke of Sussex's explosive memoir Spare in January 2023. In Harry and Meghan’s self-titled six-part TV series released in December last year, Harry accused his brother of betraying his trust by trading stories to the press.
