Royal news – live: King Charles ‘offered for Harry to stay in royal residence’ but prince ‘turned it down’

King hosts garden party with royals as Prince Harry misses reunion

King Charles reportedly agreed to Harry’s request to stay at a royal residence during his trip to the United Kingdom last week, but the prince decided to stay in a hotel instead.

Friends of Charles also criticized suggestions that the monarch would not find time to meet his son during his short stay.

“It’s all very sad,” said a friend Sunday time. “While it is true that the King is understandably wary of meeting Harry, given the publicity circus that seems to surround all these visits, he of course agreed to see his son at the most vulnerable time of his illness (in February), and within very short deadlines.

“While he was barely rolling out the red carpet when this Invictus trip was announced, with doctors advising him to focus on his treatment and recovery, the idea that he refused to find space in his diary… well, let’s just say that memories can vary once again.
