Prince Harry is traveling home to the UK this week but is not expected to meet his brother or father.
According to Mail on SundayKing Charles has “no diary time” to see his son when he returns to London on Thursday for the annual WellChild awards, the charity he has patronized for 15 years.
The publication also reports that the Duke of Sussex will not run into Prince William, as the pair have not spoken for months.
After the awards, Harry will head to Dusseldorf for the Invictus Games, where he will be joined by wife Meghan Markle.
The couple have been largely estranged from his family since stepping down as royals in early 2020 and publicly sharing their many grievances against them in their 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, their Netflix documentary series and Harry’s memoir, Spare.
According to PostHarry and Meghan – along with their two children, Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2 – were not invited to join the rest of the royal family at their annual summer gathering at Balmoral this year.
The latest development follows reports last month that Charles and William were considering meeting for peace talks with Harry when he has a short break in the UK after the Games.
“King Charles is due to return to London from Balmoral in mid-September, which coincides with the end of Harry’s trip to Dusseldorf for the Invictus Games,” a royal source told UK. ALRIGHT! magazine in the first reports.
“The King has postponed his official visit to France for September 20, so he has a few days off in London to meet his son. The staff is trying to perfect the details as we speak.”
However, the rumors were quickly quashed Day beastand a source close to the Prince of Wales claims Harry felt “completely betrayed”.
“Charles won’t see Harry, and he won’t see William either. No way. He feels completely betrayed by what Harry wrote about him in the book and said about him on Netflix,” a source told the publication.
While the relationship between William and Harry is reportedly at an all-time low, the king is understood to be softening his attitude towards his youngest son, despite feeling deeply hurt.
“The King loves both his sons and his door is always open to Harry. But I don’t think they will meet on September 17,” the source said Day beast.
“The King will prepare for a state visit to France.”
Meanwhile, Harry’s long-awaited follow-up Netflix project, Heart of Invictuspremiered last week, in which he spoke again about the lack of support he felt growing up in the royal family.
In the emotional series, which focuses on the lives of wounded veterans competing in the Invictus Games Paralympic Games, he claimed he was left “lying in the fetal position” and “bouncing off the walls” after leaving Afghanistan.
“I can only speak from personal experience – my tour of Afghanistan in 2011 flying Apaches,” Harry said.
“Sometime after that, the unraveling happened and my return from Afghanistan was the trigger.
“But the stuff that was coming was from 1997 – from the age of 12.
“Losing my mother at such a young age, the trauma I experienced, I was never aware of.”
Harry added that he tried to suppress his emotions “as most young people would do” – but when it inevitably “came out”, he was left “bouncing against walls”.
“I was thinking about what’s going on here – now I feel everything instead of being numb,” he explained.
“The biggest struggle for me was that no one around me could really help.
“I didn’t have that support structure, that network or that professional advice to identify what was really going on with me.
“Unfortunately, like most of us, the first time you really think about therapy is when you’re lying on the floor in the fetal position probably wishing you’d already addressed some of these things.”
