Prince Harry said he wants to reconcile with Prince William and King Charles and that forgiveness is on the table.
Speaking to Tom Bradby for ITN's Harry: The Interview, the Duke of Sussex revealed that he no longer recognised his estranged family and that, after years of fallout, reconciliation wouldn't be easy.
"I think there’s probably a lot of people who, after watching the documentary and reading the book, will go, how could you ever forgive your family for what they’ve done?" Harry said.

"People have already said that to me.
"Forgiveness is 100% a possibility because I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back."
"At the moment, I don't recognise them, as much as they probably don't recognise me."
While the Duke wants the royals to put aside their differences, he said he also recognises he won't be able to move on without his brother and father taking "accountability" for their alleged role in the falling out.
"Though I would like to have reconciliation, I would like accountability," Harry added.
"I’ve managed to make peace over this time with a lot of things that have happened. But that doesn’t mean that I’m just gonna let it go.
"You know, I’ve made peace with it, but I still would like reconciliation, and not only would that be wonderful for us [Harry and Meghan Markle], but it would be fantastic for them as well."

He continued: "I love my father. I love my brother. I love my family. I will always do.
"Nothing of what I’ve done in this book or otherwise has ever been to, uh, any intention to harm them or hurt them."
The Prince also had some scathing words for his dad, who he said gave the impression he wasn't ready to be a dad – and that single parenthood came as a shock following Princess Diana's death.
"He’d always given an air of not being quite ready for parenthood: the responsibilities, the patience, the time," Harry added.
"Even he, though a proud man, would have admitted as much.
"But single-parenthood? Pa was never made for that. To be fair, he tried."
So far Harry's bid for forgiveness has fallen on deaf ears.
Buckingham Palace remained silent following the release of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Netflix documentary, Harry & Meghan, last month, and the royals are not expected to comment on this interview or on Harry's upcoming memoir, Spare, when it is released tomorrow (Tuesday, January 10).
The historic release also falls the day after Kate Middleton's 41st birthday today (Monday, January 9), giving the Palace all the more reason to remain silent following Harry's latest revelations.
