An "olive branch" from Prince Charles could prompt Prince Harry to delay the publication of his much-anticipated bombshell memoir, a royal commentator has claimed.
Stateside Harry has a tell-all memoir slated for the end of the year and the uncertainty around what the book might entail reportedly has senior royals quaking in their boots.
However despite a strained recent relationship, Harry's dad praised his youngest son's climate activism in one of America's biggest publications.
Passionate environmentalist Charles, 73, made the comments in an essay to Newsweek where he paid tribute to both Harry's and Prince William's work in the debate.
The admission comes after a tepid time for the family with reports last month suggesting that Charles and Harry had "barely spoken" for the past eight months with relations at an "all-time low".
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told the Sun Online that he thinks the comments could mean reconciliation is around the corner.
He said: "I do think this tribute is very significant because this is one thing that Charles, William and Harry share in common and that is the need to fight climate change.
"Harry’s relations with his father have of course been extremely strained.

"The fact that Charles has done this in Newsweek, which has a large circulation in America, I think it’s clearly a form of an olive branch in the hope that there will be a form of reconciliation."
Mr Fitzwilliams even believes Charles' latest comments could prompt his son to hold back the date of publication.
"I think if you offer an olive branch it's only reasonable to expect something in return," the expert said.
"I would have thought that some form of either postponement of the autobiography or indeed some form of clarification as to when or what years it will cover (can be expected).

"Otherwise everything that is said to Meghan and Harry when they come over for the platinum jubilee celebrations – which I'm sure they will – could conceivably find it’s way into the book."
In his essay, Charles wrote: "As a father, I am proud that my sons have recognised this threat. Most recently, my elder son, William, launched the prestigious Earthshot Prize to incentivise change and help repair our planet over the next ten years.
"My younger son, Harry, has passionately highlighted the impact of climate change, especially in relation to Africa, and committed his charity to being net zero."
The praise, which many have taken as a 'peace offering' is a sign that tensions have cooled somewhat in the family after Harry and Meghan's bombshell Oprah interview last year.
The Sussexes have been contacted for comment.
