Prince Harry reportedly snubbed King Charles’ invitation for dinner

Prince Harry snubbed dinner with Charles and William at Balmoral after Meghan Markle was banned from joining the family on the day the Queen died.

Harry, 38, had insisted his wife be there on the day Her Majesty died on September 8, but Charles phoned to say it was ‘not appropriate’. The sun reports.

He saw Harry miss an RAF flight to Scotland with his brother William and his uncles Princes Andrew and Edward.

He was told to make his own travel arrangements and finally landed in Aberdeen without Meghan at 6.35pm – minutes after the Queen’s death was announced to the world.

When driven to Balmoral 90 minutes later, he refused to dine at Birkhall, Charles’ home on the estate, with the new king, Queen Consort Camilla and Prince William.

Insiders say the sulky prince instead wept with Edward and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex and Andrew, seven miles away at Balmoral Castle.

A source said: “Harry was so busy trying to get Meghan to Balmoral and rowing with his family that he missed the flight.

“Charles has an open invitation for Harry to dine with him whenever he is in the country.

“But Harry was so furious that he refused to eat with his father and brother.

“It was a huge snub. And he got out of Balmoral at the first opportunity to catch the first commercial flight back to London.

At 8am the next day, Harry was seen being driven to a British Airways jet which left for Heathrow at 9.45am.

He then reunited with Meghan at Frogmore Cottage, Windsor.

Despite the dinner rebuff, William asked Harry and Meghan to walk with him and Kate to view flowers at Windsor Castle on September 10.

And King Charles III allowed his son to wear a uniform for a wake with the Queen’s seven other grandchildren during the Lying-in-State at Westminster Hall.

Harry and Meghan returned home to California on Tuesday – 24 hours after the family put the Queen to rest.
