Most Rev Justin Welby believes reconciliation will happen at the “right time” between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royal family.
The 66-year-old church leader – who officiated the Sussex’s wedding in 2018 - was asked his opinion on the matter following the release of the last episodes of Harry and Meghan’s Netflix docuseries.
Speaking on BBC’s Sundays with Laura Kuenssberg, Archbishop Justin said: "I can't really comment on it because I married them and there's sort of pastoral confidentiality.
"There's always a way forward, but it has to be at the right time.
"And, as a Christian, I live in the belief that forgiveness comes from God through Jesus Christ and that God, particularly at this time of the year, God breaks into the world to open the way to forgiveness through the Christ channel.
"But the way we welcome that opportunity is different for everyone. And there has to be a right time," he added.
