Prince Harry is feeling “homesick” and has been calling close friends from home “for advice” on how to heal things with his father Prince Charles.

According to royal biographer Robert Lacey, the Duke of Sussex is regretting some of his comments about his father this year, and is trying to find a way to make amends with the help of his closest confidantes.

"Homesick Harry has been calling UK pals mournfully in recent weeks, since his public complaints against Prince Charles were so poorly received," the author told the Daily Mail.

"I'm told that Harry has been telling friends he would like to reconcile, and is willing to admit some of the missteps he has made."

Harry, 36, has always had a close group which includes his old school pals, colleagues from the army and royal mentors.

And some of them crossover between both brothers Harry and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, having attended both their weddings.

Robert claimed the pals have “listened sympathetically” to both the Dukes in recent months, as the rift reportedly continues between the pair.

Dad-of-two Harry is said to have been calling his friends “mournfully” ever since complaints he made about Charles sparked a backlash.

During his documentary The Me You Can’t See with Oprah Winfrey for Apple TV, the Duke of Sussex opened up on his struggles with mental health throughout his life.

He said he had experienced “total neglect” from the royals and lamented his father’s approach to the pain and trauma he would face growing up.

A frustrated Harry told viewers he didn’t believe that just because his father had “suffered” he should have to as well.

“Actually quite the opposite,” the prince said on the documentary. "If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences you had, you can make it right for your kids."

Harry’s comments about the royal family sparked a backlash, and the royal author claims Harry is upset by the outcome.

It comes as the Duke is due to stand with his brother William, 39, for a planned unveiling of a statue this week in honour of their mother Princess Diana’s memory.

The occasion is timed to coincide with the late princess’s 60th birthday, which would have been in July.

Robert has also released a new book called Battle of the Brothers, which delves into the feud between William and Harry.

The conflict between Diana’s “two bitterly divided sons does not seem likely to end any time soon,” the royal author wrote.

There are hopes that when Harry has finished quarantining – following his arrival in the UK – he and William will start to build bridges.

There is also an expected return for both Harry and Meghan to return together for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, which gives the two siblings time to patch things up.
