Now royal commentators are suggesting that the Duke's relationship with his brother Prince William is simply "too far gone".
Jennie Bond explained: "We all say, 'oh, time will heal everything'. I think in this case it's not going to heal."
Speaking on GB News, she said: "In fact, I think positions have become so entrenched that the rest of family have just moved on.
"I think certainly between William and Harry there is no going back, and it's just a fait accompli now that they don't talk.
"They have no intention of talking, the two families go their own ways and I think that's how it's going to stay and time is making that more certain."
In a discussion with Patrick Christys, she continued: "I hope personally that Charles somehow reaches out to his son and continues to say he wants to see him.
"Because I think that's what a dad has to do. But I don't think Harry's making it easy.
"They've moved on, they've gone away from the toxicity that Harry and Meghan seem to spread amongst them and they've just let it go.
"I’m sure there's great sadness within the family but this happens in families, doesn't it?"
She added: "I think it's clear that the majority, a large proportion of people in this country feel that Harry and Meghan have probably better where they are."
