King Charles' awkward response to Prince Harry question: 'Who?'

The awkward moment comes following reports Harry may attend the King's coronation.

King Charles has offered an awkward response to a question about Prince Harry while visiting the University of East London. The monarch was left confused when someone called out, "Can you bring back Harry?"

The King responded, "Who?" after clearly mishearing the question, leaving the crowd in stitches, The Sun reports. When Charles himself realised what had happened, he too laughed with the crowd.

The hilarious exchange comes following claims the Duke of Sussex may return to the UK for a 48-hour visit for the King's coronation in May.


Daily Mail reports Harry's wife Meghan Markle would stay home in the US to celebrate their son Archie's fourth birthday.

Harry gave an interview with ITV's Tom Bradby following the release of his book last month, telling the journalist he does want to attend the coronation but added "the ball is in their court".

"There’s a lot that can happen between now and then," he said. "But, the door is always open. The ball is in their court. There’s a lot to be discussed and I really hope that they’re willing to sit down and talk about it."

Harry also shared, "I would like to get my father back, I would like to have my brother back."


Sources told The Sun last month that some family members wouldn't feel comfortable speaking candidly with Harry and his wife Meghan Markle if they were in attendance and would worry their private conversations would be exploited.

"There have been discussions among the family, including Edward and Anne," the source shared. "They do not want private conversations at the Coronation making it into the paperback edition of Spare."
