The Queen has "made it clear" she is "united with Prince Charles and Prince William" in the aftermath of Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey, it is claimed.
She was reportedly "disappointed" with aspects of the explosive interview, which included accusations of racism in the Royal family and claims they failed to give Meghan Markle support when she was feeling suicidal.
The Royal family strongly denied the claims.
Harry had a tense reunion with the family when he returned to the UK for the first time in a year to attend Prince Philip's funeral.
He was photographed in public with his brother and father for the first time since the tell-all Oprah chat aired in March, but he is believed to have held talks with some senior royals behind closed doors in a bid to ease the tension.
Reports suggest she has given her support to Charles and William to deal with the feud with Harry and to deal with the fallout from the interview.
A source told the MailOnline: "The Queen has made it clear to senior advisers that she is united with Charles and William, and she was disappointed with aspects of Harry and Meghan's interview.
"There is much pain and hurt on both sides, so this reconciliation will take place in baby steps.
"First, they need to decide on some ground rules as to how they conduct business going forward in a way that makes all parties feel safe and protected."
Grieving Charles, the Royal family's new patriarch, has gone to his estate in Llwynywermod in South Wales following his father's funeral.

Harry was seen chatting with William and Kate Middleton outside St George's Chapel following the funeral, and the Duchess of Cambridge later slipped away to allow the two brothers time to talk alone as they walked back to the castle's private apartments.
Kate has been described as a "peacemaker" of the event in a bid to bring her husband and brother-in-law closer together.
There were claims that Charles, Harry, William and Kate later met at Frogmore Cottage, Harry's former home, for clear-the-air talks.

Royal biographer Ingrid Seward said it is unlikely the Queen would want to be involved in any kind of family summit to address the rift, at least at this stage.
She told The Times: "His (Harry's) grandmother will not be in the mood for it. She hates confrontation.
"The children have much difficulty getting the Queen to discuss anything other than dogs or horses.
"I remember Fergie (Sarah Ferguson) telling me it took three weeks for them to try and get her to discuss their divorce. She kept saying ‘Oh, I’ve got to take the dogs for a walk’."
It is thought Harry could delay his return home to American to be with heavily pregnant wife Meghan, with the Queen set to mark her 95th birthday on Wednesday.
Clarence House declined to comment.
