The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be in the UK this week for the One Young World summit, but declined the Prince of Wales’ offer.

Reportedly, Charles wants to repair the broken relationship between himself and the Sussexes, even after Meghan’s latest comments.


“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.”

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.

The couple will be staying at Frogmore Cottage when they’re in London later this week, but apparently have no plans to visit the Queen or Prince William and Kate Middleton.
