King Charles Snubs Prince Harry during Son’s Rare UK Visit

King Charles appears to have snubbed Prince Harry during his estranged son’s visit to his home country.

The snub is the latest sign of the Duke of Sussex’s dramatic rift with the royal family.

The monarch was reportedly too busy to meet with his son, who was in Britain for a rare visit to honor the Invictus Games.

Invictus is a sporting event for wounded veterans that Harry founded.

Harry has grown estranged from Buckingham Palace since laying down his royal duties in 2020 and moving to America with his wife, Meghan Markle.

The couple has fiercely criticized the royal family in media interviews and a tell-all memoir, Spare.

The highly publicized rift, dubbed Megxit, is continuing to place the royal family under scrutiny as King Charles battles cancer.

Harry traveled to England this week, but his father was reportedly unable to pencil in time for him.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Harry said:

“In response to the many inquiries and continued speculation on whether or not the duke will meet with his father while in the UK this week, it unfortunately will not be possible due to His Majesty’s full program.

“The Duke, of course, is understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon.”

In another perceived snub, the King’s schedule included a ceremony to name his elder son, heir to the throne Prince William, as the commander of the British Army Air Corps.

The Army Air Corps is the military regiment that Harry once served in.

Harry would have received the honor had he not stepped aside from royal duties, the Independent reported.

In a statement, the palace said:

“His Majesty the King will officially hand over the role of Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.”

Harry was reportedly “in tears” over the snub, according to Royal expert Tom Quinn.

Quinn speculated that the royal family is sending a clear message that Harry is cut out for good.

He called the news “a real kick in the teeth for the son who always felt marginalized and underrated.”

“But they have decided the gloves are off and that Harry needs to realize that when you betray the family, you don’t just escape the things you hated doing as a working royal.

“You also lose the things you loved.”

The King’s engagements also included a garden party at Buckingham Palace.

The palace is just two miles away from St. Paul’s Cathedral where Prince Harry made an appearance to celebrate the Invictus Games.

Harry neglected to wear the medal his father gave him at his coronation.

Some see the move as a swipe back at the King.
