Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo, 32, has given his opinions on the rift between Prince Harry and his family, claiming that his friend and his wife, Meghan Markle, will be able to repair the damaged relationship. Following the couple’s landmark interview with Oprah Winfrey, the relationship between the couple and the Royal Family reportedly became strained, but the dancer has insisted that amends between the parties can be made with “conversation and understanding”.
I believe anything can be healed with enough conversation and understanding
It comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex bonded with the star after his dance troupe Diversity portrayed the tragic death of George Floyd on Britain’s Got Talent last September.
Floyd’s death was caused by a white police officer kneeling on his neck for almost nine minutes in Minneapolis in May 2020.
Speaking about the moment he struck up a bond with the couple, Ashley gave his opinion on the royal rift.
He said: “I’ve been lucky enough to meet quite a few members of the Royal Family including the late Prince Philip and Her Majesty the Queen.
“Every time we’ve spoken they’ve all been very polite and lovely to me.”
The Diversity star received a personal phone call from Harry and Meghan after the Black Lives Matter-inspired dance routine, which became controversial as it received nearly 25,000 Ofcom complaints.
Ashley went on to state that he believed amends could be made between the divided family.
“But as far as any family feuds go, I believe anything can be healed with enough conversation and understanding,” he added in an interview with The Sun.
“It just depends how much people really want to engage in that process, only time will tell I guess.”
The dancer previously told talk show host Jonathan Ross that he had a “lovely chat” with Meghan and Harry.
He explained: “[It] made me sort of realise, way before their [Oprah] interview, they spoke me through some stuff and really opened my eyes to some of the stuff they’d been through.
“I was like, wow, this is real and if anyone understood it, they did, about where I was at, in the midst of a storm.”

Harry and Meghan shocked the world with their landmark interview with media mogul Oprah Winfrey, in which they made some explosive claims.
After Meghan claimed to have experienced suicidal thoughts while pregnant with her son Archie, Harry revealed that his father stopped taking his phone calls after he disclosed his plans to withdraw from royal duties.
It has been reported that in an attempt to heal the rift, Harry has been holding “very strained” talks with Prince William and Prince Charles.
The Duke of Sussex met up with his family for the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip last month.
It was the first time Harry had come face-to-face with his dad and brother since the interview in March.
However, at the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh, the two brothers were filmed talking to one another, raising hopes of a rapprochement.
Ashley is set to present a new Total Wipeout style show, The Void, alongside singer Fleur East.
The ITV show is set to premier during the summer.
