According to Mark Dyer, a common friend of the princes, it is completely understandable that their joint meeting will not take place, as their animosity dates back to the tragic death of their mother, Princess Diana. Harry did not spend the night at the royal residence and does not intend to stay in London for long, already preparing for his return to Montecito where he lives with his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Archie and Lilibet. The Duke, it is reported, will join Meghan next week for the commemorative event of the Invictus Games held in Vancouver. Those close to Prince Harry state that the Duke, despite everything, is still willing to meet with his estranged brother: “The Duke’s main reason for traveling to London is actually to meet with his ailing father.
Harry’s and the King’s relationship has been strained since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and it was announced that the father and son were not in contact when the Duke celebrated his 39th birthday. Palace sources, however, state that there is currently no chance for the estranged brothers to meet during the Duke’s stay in the United Kingdom. Prince Harry arrived at Clarence House yesterday around 2:25 pm, where he had a “brief” meeting with his father, King Charles. Harry, on his way to Clarence House, reportedly arrived accompanied by police security.
