Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly on a “trial separation” after months of fighting, according to sources close to the pair.

The time apart hopes to rebuild The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's bond after recent setbacks and deals falling through with Spotify.

Harry is venturing to Africa for a Netflix documentary, whilst Meghan is reportedly staying in their Californian mansion.

The reports, as first reported by Sky News and so far unconfirmed, follow other recent claims that the pair were denied a request to fly back to the United States with President Joe Biden on Air Force One after the funeral of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

According to the DailyMail, sources claim that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s request to accompany the president back to the US in September 2022 was a “non-starter” and there was “barely any discussion” about the request.

“It would have caused such a commotion,” another source alleged to the outlet. “It would have strained relations with the Palace and the new King.”

Both the Sussexes, President Joe Biden, and First Lady Jill Biden attended the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on 19 September.

The late monarch’s state funeral gathered together hundreds of world leaders, diplomats, and international royals at Westminster Abbey in London.

The funeral marked a rare moment when Harry and Meghan reunited with the royal family after stepping down as senior working royals in 2020.

Since then, the couple has shared several bombshell claims about the royal family in their sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, their six-part Netflix docuseries, and in Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir, Spare. The many revelations included an alleged fight with his older brother, Prince William, in 2019.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix series, 'Harry & Meghan', was recently nominated for a Hollywood Critics Award.

The docuseries, which was the first project to come from the couple's $100 million deal with Netflix, has been recognised in the Best Streaming Nonfiction category.

The show garnered success, becoming Netflix's second-highest ranked documentary ever, with 'The Tinder Swindler' taking the top spot.
