She told CBS This Morning Harry had spoken to his brother and dad Prince Charles for the first time since the explosive interview aired last Sunday.
But Gayle said those talks were "unproductive" as the royal rift deepens.
She said: "Well, I did actually call them to see how they are feeling, it's true, Harry has talked to his brother and his father, too.
"The word I was given was, those conversations were not productive. But they are glad they at least started a conversation."
Harry accused the Royal Family of racism and Meghan blasted William’s wife Kate in the tell-all chat.
He also claimed William and their father, Prince Charles, were “trapped” by their royal responsibilities.
And Meghan said her sister-in-law, Kate, received preferential treatment and made her cry during a dress fitting before her wedding to Harry.
The princes have barely spoken to each other for more than a year after Harry and Meghan “blindsided” the Queen and announced Megxit on their Sussex Royal Instagram page.
William, Charles and the Queen, rejected the couple’s plea for a hybrid royal role.
He also stood by the Queen when she turned down Harry’s request to keep his patronages and military titles at a review last month.
Stern William last week warned he would be speaking to his brother when quizzed by journalists at a visit to a school.
The Duke of Cambridge was also forced to deny the Royal Family is racist after Meghan and Harry's sensational allegations.
Meghan, 39, claimed an unnamed royal had raised “concerns” about the “skin colour” of her and Harry’s children.
Speaking about the royal crisis today, Gayle told CBS: "The family has to acknowledge there are issues.
"Right now, no one has acknowledged, Houston we have a problem here. That's really all they want. They both want a conversation."
Gayle also touched on a bullying probe launched by Buckingham Palace into allegations made against Meghan while she was working as a royal.
Backing her pal today, the host said Meghan is a "very sweet, caring person".
She added: "I have to say Meghan has documents to back up everything that she said on Oprah’s interview."
The Queen released a carefully-worded statement last week saying she was "saddened" by the interview and that "recollections may vary".
It comes after Harry's granddad Prince Philip today left hospital after his longest stay ever following surgery for a heart condition.
