King hosts garden party with senior royals as Prince Harry to miss reunion

King Charles reportedly agreed to a request from Harry to stay at a royal residence during his trip to the UK last week but the prince decided to stay at a hotel instead.

Friends of Charles also poured cold water on suggestions that the monarch couldn’t find the time to meet his son during his short stay.

“It’s all very sad,” one friend told The Sunday Times. “While it is true that the King is understandably wary about meeting with Harry, given the publicity circus that seems to surround all such visits, he did of course agree to see his son at the most vulnerable moment of his illness [in February], and at very short notice.

“While he was hardly going to roll out the red carpet the moment this Invictus trip was announced, with doctors advising him to focus on his treatment and recovery, the idea that he refused to find space in his diary … well, let’s say recollections may vary once again.”

“It’s all very sad,” Charles’s friend told The Sunday Times. “While it is true that the King is understandably wary about meeting with Harry, given the publicity circus that seems to surround all such visits, he did of course agree to see his son at the most vulnerable moment of his illness [in February], and at very short notice.

Meghan Markle opened up about her “very chatty, sweet children” Archie and Lilibet during a talk at a women’s leadership event in Nigeria.

The Duchess of Sussex said “I love being a mum” and had fulfilled her dreams by becoming a parent.

She was speaking at a Women in Leadership event she was co-hosting with Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, director-general of the World Trade Organization.

During the panel discussion, Ms Markle also said that the “balance” in her life has changed over the years and looks different to ten years ago before she was married and had Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

“What I think that to mean now is that that balance will always change for you,” she said, Hello magazine reported. “That balance, what seems balanced ten years ago is going to shift.”

Harry enjoys game of sitting volleyball as Meghan cheers him on during Nigeria visit

The Duke and Duchess were all smiles on their second-day visit to Nigeria on Saturday (11 May).
