On the evening of the sovereign’s death, Prince Harry declined the invitation of his father King Charles, who had offered to dine together with Prince William at Balmoral Castle. According to several sources cited by the Daily Mail, Prince Harry would have been unhappy that his father had forbidden him to come with his wife Meghan…
The Duke of Sussex reportedly wanted his wife to join him as the Royal Family rushed to the Scottish estate to say their final goodbyes to their beloved mother and grandmother on September 8.
However, the new King of England phoned his youngest son and told him it was “not appropriate” for the former Suits actress to be there, justifying that Prince William’s wife, herself even was not there, according to several sources.
Harry, furious, would have liked to persuade his father to allow Meghan to come with him. While trying to convince his father over the phone, he missed the flight carrying William and his uncles Andrew and Edward to Scotland.
Furious, Prince Harry, who later arrived in Scotland and learned of his grandmother’s death on the plane, refused to have dinner that evening at Balmoral with Charles, William and Queen Consort Camilla.
Instead, he preferred to eat with the Duke of York, Earl and Countess of Wessex before leaving early the next morning, reports The Sun.
The Sun newspaper quotes a source as saying: “Harry was so busy trying to get Meghan with him to Balmoral and arguing with his family that he missed his flight.”
The following morning, he was the first member of the royal family to leave Balmoral, on board a British Airways commercial flight from Aberdeen, which was scheduled to take off at 8:28 a.m.
