Prince Harry reportedly refused to have dinner with King Charles III after Meghan Markle was banned by the new monarch.
Prince Harry turned down the opportunity to dine with King Charles III and his brother the Prince of Wales at Balmoral. A report by The DailyMail (via Mint) attributes the Duke of Sussex’s action to the new monarch banning his wife Meghan Markle from joining the royal family on the day Queen Elizabeth II died.
Prince Harry reportedly wanted Meghan to join him in saying their final goodbyes to Queen Elizabeth on September 8. However, King Charles allegedly told his youngest son that it was “not appropriate” for Meghan to be there.
As part of his attempt to convince his father to allow Meghan to join him, Harry reportedly missed a flight to Scotland. The flight was carrying William and their uncles Andrew and Edward, reports said.
Prince Harry reacted to the turnaround event by missing his first flight. Moreover, he reportedly refused to have dinner that evening with Charles, William, and Queen Consort Camilla.
Instead, Harry joined the Duke of York and the Earl and Countess of Wessex for dinner and left early the next morning.
“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,” The Sun reported.
“But Harry was so furious that he refused to eat with his father and brother. It was a massive snub. And he got out of Balmoral at the earliest opportunity to catch the first commercial flight back to London,” the daily added.
Furthermore, the report claims Prince Harry was the first Royal Family member to leave. He reached Aberdeen airport at 9.20 am and boarded a flight to London.
