The new monarch was holding a private event for family as the Queen’s coffin arrived from Scotland.

In another show of solidarity, Prince William and Kate Middleton were also at the palace, providing a united front during the emotional time.


Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie were in attendance, along with Prince Andrew, Zara Philips, Mike Tindall, Princess Anne and Prince Edward.

Charles, Harry and Meghan haven’t been seen in public together for many years. However, the King has reunited with the couple in private.

The monarch was able to meet the couple’s youngest child, Lilibet Diana, when they were in the UK for the Queen’s platinum jubilee.

Recently, Meghan addressed the rift between her husband and his father, saying that Harry feels that he ‘lost his dad’ after the pair stepped down from royal duties.

In an interview with Cut, Meghan recalled a conversation she had with Harry.

“Harry said to me, ‘I lost my dad in this process’. It doesn’t have to be the same for them as it was for me, but that’s his decision,” she said, referring to her strained relationship with father Thomas Markle.

Harry and Meghan snub Charles' offer

This comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex supposedly refused a generous invitation from the King.

According to The Mirror, a close friend revealed that the pair are ‘always welcome’ to stay with Charles when they visit the UK.

“He hasn’t wavered, despite the attacks, which seem to be coming with increased vigour.

“The Prince of Wales reiterated his invitation for Harry and Meghan, and the whole family if they wished, to come and stay with him this summer while he is at his home on the Balmoral estate,” the source told the publication.

“He thought it might be a good opportunity for everyone to take stock and relax, but the invitation was declined.”
