The tumultuous life of Prince Harry continues with new challenges. According to the narration from the author of a recent book on the royal family, King Charles III was asked an unexpected question by Harry and Meghan following their eviction from Frogmore Cottage.

There's no denying that Harry has a challenging relationship with his family. Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle resigned from their duties as members of the royal family and relocated from the UK, media reports have highlighted their ongoing disputes with the royals.

A few months ago, media was abuzz with King Charles III's decision to instruct his younger son, Harry and his wife, Meghan, to vacate their British residence, Frogmore Cottage. The property, a wedding gift to the royal couple from Queen Elizabeth II, was reportedly offered to Charles III's younger brother in the aftermath.

Long-time royal journalist, Omid Scobie, shared what transpired following the eviction order in his book on the British monarchy, "Endgame". Scobie noted that the eviction upset Harry so much that he confronted his father, King Charles III, and tried everything possible to revoke his decision. During a "tense telephone conversation", Harry went as far as to invoke Archie and Lilibet to ask an unusual question.

In the course of the conversation, there reportedly was a "half-hearted assurance" that Harry and his family will always have accommodation, but it didn't offer much "hope" to Harry. According to the book's author, this property was the "sole secure option for the family during their UK visits".

As reported by the media, Harry is currently fighting for government protection for his family due to the perceived risk to his wife and children in his homeland. "Page Six" reports that to date, King Charles has only minimally interacted with Harry's children. He has met his youngest grandchild, Lilibet, born in California, only once. Media outlets have reported that King Charles declined to attend his granddaughter's baptism due to being "too busy".

What do you think, can there ever be a reconciliation?
