PRINCE Harry will once again dive headfirst into his strained relationship with the royal family in an explosive interview this weekend.
The Duke of Sussex is set to speak to ITV at 9pm on Sunday, just hours before his telltale memoir Spare hits shelves.
The bombastic memoir, released on Tuesday, promises to tell an “accurate and absolutely truthful” story of the prince’s life.
In a trailer for the taped interview with News at Ten host Tom Bradby, Harry accused The Firm of having “an unwillingness to reconcile” amid a long-running row over Harry’s alleged treatment.
The claim comes despite seven attempts by the royal family to offer the Duke an olive branch, the Daily Mirror reports.
The first of these was Harry’s invitation to unveil a memorial to his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.
The reveal came just months after Harry and Meghan’s bombshell 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Then-Prince Charles also penned an article praising Harry for his environmental work – which is seen as an attempt to improve relations.
Charles wrote in a 2022 New Year’s essay: “Harry has passionately highlighted the impact of climate change, particularly as it relates to Africa.
“And has committed his charity to being net zero.”
In a third attempt to ease rising transatlantic tensions following numerous interviews by the Sussexes, Harry was invited to Prince Philip’s memorial.
But he did not attend the service in March last year, although he did attend the Duke’s funeral in April 2021.
The snub comes amid a legal battle with the Home Office over Prince Harry’s security arrangements in the UK.
But in the weeks following Prince Philip’s funeral, Harry and Meghan came home to meet his grandma.
The Duke and Duchess had tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle before heading to the Netherlands for the Invictus games – Charles and Camilla were there too.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan later attended the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee last summer.
Their invitation, which saw them perform at the Trooping of The Color and a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, was another olive branch offered to the couple.
And in the days following the Queen’s funeral, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex accompanied the Prince and Princess of Wales on a tour of Windsor Castle.
The Fab Four greeted well-wishers and read thousands of floral tributes in what was seen as an attempt to show a united front.
And in a last-ditch effort to salvage relationships, Sussexes and their children have been treated to two bank holidays by King Charles to mend broken relationships.
But Harry turned down the King’s offers for 2022 to visit his Gloucestershire home, Highgrove and Balmoral in Scotland.
The invitations were in the months leading up to the Queen’s death.
