In an ongoing battle against the tabloids, Prince Harry has finally achieved something; the Mirror has issued public apologies, admitting to unlawfully obtaining confidential information through phone interceptions. This is only the beginning of the story, as the prince will be travelling back to London in June to testify in the case against the Mirror’s publishers. The editorial group “unreservedly apologizes and accepts that Harry is entitled to adequate compensation,” they announced, with the court proceedings commencing last month against Associated Newspapers Limited, which includes the Daily Mail and the Mail on Sunday.

However, it is unlikely that a truce will be made (as the press is held accountable for the death of his mother, ed) nor with his brother William, who completely disregarded him during the coronation of Charles III, on May 6th. “The coronation was the beginning of the end of the relationship between Harry and the royal family,” Nick Bullen, director of True Royalty TV, told Us Weekly. “It seemed that Harry and Meghan were just some kind of sidebar to all this,” he added, and it was evident: the king and queen were the stars of the show and Kate and William were already firmly in control of the future; the palace had no room for Harry or his wife Meghan, who has evidently expressed no interest in returning to the UK. Harry is paying a heavy price for his rebellion, but his biggest struggle is the limbo between two worlds. For much of his life he has only known the “royal family” environment, however now that he is out of that “bubble” he is in a world he does not fully understand. Unlike Meghan, he always appears out of place, constantly searching for himself. Beyond the family feuds, the impossible truce with his brother and the bond with his father, the only one with whom the relationships have stayed amicable despite the accusations, this is the real challenge of the prince. To make peace with the past and move on. With or without the royal family.
