King Charles Displays Photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Palace Meeting

King Charles III has begun taking on new duties, following the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth, and the new British monarch is keeping hie family close while he works. ITV's Lizzie Robinson recently shared a video of King Charles meeting with the new U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss, who was seen offering a curtsy before shaking the new king's hand. The clip also reveals some photos that Charles has around his office, including a photo of his son Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Charles has had a strained relationship with Harry and Markle ever since the couple resigned from Royal duties and did an interview with Oprah that revealed some shocking claims. During a post-interview appearance on CBS Mornings, the iconic TV host shared some new footage of her conversation with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, including a portion where Harry discusses the monarchy being a "toxic environment. He goes on to say that while he has had to learn to separate himself from it, his father Prince Charles has made "peace" with the toxicity.

In a clip from the interview, Harry specifically refers to the unspoken relationship that he says the Royals have with U.K. tabloids. He spoke of this during the main interview, but in the new footage, he addresses the tabloids having the Royal family members under "control" through "fear." This, he says, is the "toxic environment" he had to escape. Oprah then asked if Harry and Markle's perception of the situation is shared by the rest of his family, specifically, his father. "I think he's had to make peace with it," Harry replied.

Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning royal monarch of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms, died on Sept. 8, just under 18 months after the death of Prince Philip, her husband of more than 73 years. The Queen died at Balmoral, her beloved palace in the Scottish Highlands, which was purchased by her great-great-grandfather Prince Albert for Queen Victoria in 1852. She was surrounded by her children and grandchildren.
