King Charles ‘to mention Harry and Meghan’ in Christmas speech after Netflix doc

King Charles III could still mention Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in his Christmas Day 2022 speech despite their explosive Netflix documentary series.

As the King prepares to make his first Christmas speech following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, it's been claimed "he will resist temptation" to omit Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, from his address to the nation.

"I don't believe he will waste a moment on them – and nor will there be any hidden messages of reconciliation, such as having their framed photo on his desk or including a video clip focusing on them," a source told the Mirror.

"He will want to use his first 10-minute broadcast to try to galvanise and inspire a country facing numerous problems and hardships, as well as addressing the other Commonwealth nations."

They continued: "I'm sure King Charles will take time to reflect on his mother's phenomenal achievements and the enormous legacy she has left."

OK! has approached Buckingham Palace for comment.

It was previously reported that the King, 74, recorded his first Christmas message days before Harry and Meghan's show arrived on Netflix.

In the latest episodes, the nation saw Harry claim William “screamed and shouted” at him and Charles lied during a meeting about himself and Meghan wanting to take a step back from royal duties at Sandringham.

Harry says in the documentary: "It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me, and my father say things that just simply weren't true, and my grandmother, you know, quietly sit there, and sort of take it all in."

The couple also claim Harry was “blocked” from seeing his grandmother The Queen and Meghan adds she “wasn’t allowed” to go anywhere to seek help for her suicidal thoughts.

Following the release of the documentary, royal expert Katie Nicholl believes it's clear Harry and Meghan are "waiting for an apology" from the Royal family that they won't get.

Katie – author of The New Royals – tells OK! Harry is going to have to “win back the trust” of The Firm if their strained relationship is ever going to move forward.

She shared with us: "I think every relationship can ultimately be repaired but it’s going to take a lot of time and Harry is going to need to work very hard to win back that trust.

“It’s clear from the documentary Harry is awaiting an apology from the royal family and I don’t think he is going to get an apology."

Katie went on to add: "What needs to happen is an admission that there have been faults on both sides and once there has been that admission, that may pave the way for a reconciliation.

“But Charles knows that a monarchy divided is not a monarchy the world wants to see.”
