The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are ‘in a better space’ with the royal family, a source has revealed.
Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, are currently living in a waterfront Vancouver Island mansion as they prepare to step back from life as working members of the royal family next week.
The source told ET that ‘while there have been tensions’, the royal family are now ‘getting through it.’
From March 31, the monarch’s grandson and American former actress Meghan will no longer use their HRH styles as they pursue a new life of personal and financial freedom.
A source told ET that tensions are thawing between Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, and the rest of the royal family as they prepare to step back from life as working royals next week (pictured, on their final official royal engagement earlier this month)
The source explained: ‘Things are in a better space now between the couple and the royal family.’
They added that while the decision was ‘difficult’ for the couple, they did ‘what they thought was right for their family.’
But they said Prince William had remained critical of the way Prince Harry and Meghan had dealt with their decision.
The source revealed: ‘William was unhappy that things weren’t handled privately.’
While the source said ‘things are in a better space’ for Prince Harry and the rest of the family, they added that Prince William was ‘unhappy’ with how Megxit had been handled publically
It follows on-going claims over the past 18 months of a rift between the Sussexes and the Cambridges, first between Kate and Meghan, and then between future king Prince William and his younger brother, Harry.
But the two households went on to split, with Harry and Meghan leaving Kensington Palace for Frogmore Cottage in Windsor and appointing their own staff.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to the UK earlier this month for their final engagements before quitting as senior members of the royal family next week.
The royal couple carried out their last public royal duty before they walked away from the monarchy at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.

Prince Harry and brother Prince William reunited at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey, with royal watchers branding their interaction ‘frosty’.
Sources have previously spoken about how Prince William and Prince Harry’s relationship has been ‘forever changed’ after Megxit.
They told People magazine that the once close brothers will never ‘get back to the way they were’.
It comes after months of rumoured rifts between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (pictured together in November 2018)
Royal expert has Omid Scobie revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan wanted to find places where they ‘feel safe, heard and respected’ now they’ve left the UK because ‘there hasn’t been enough of that recently’
Speaking on the Heirpod podcast, Omid said the Duke and Duchess would focus on being with people ‘they trust and like to be around’ after stepping down as senior royals.
The Commonwealth Day service was Harry and Meghan’s final hurrah as senior royals before they bow out and embrace their new life in North America – after announcing their intention to quit in January.
