Prince Charles hasnt spoken to Harry since awkward palace chat, say insiders

Prince Harry and his father Prince Charles haven’t exchanged a word since the “cordial but slightly awkward” fifteen-minute chat they had a week ago.

Sources close to Prince Charles have said he is “at a loss” to explain his son’s comments in an interview with NBC journalist Hoda Kotb at the Invictus Games.

Harry told the US broadcaster that he had dropped in on Her Majesty the Queen to make sure she was “protected” and “had the right people around her”.

It’s not entirely clear what he meant by the comments, and representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not reply to messages asking for clarification.

Harry’s proud of his ability to make the Queen laugh and insists she can talk to him "about things she can't talk about with anybody else".

He said of his recent trip with Meghan to visit Her Majesty at Windsor Castle: "Being with her, it was great. It was just so nice to see her. You know, she's on great form.

"She has always got a great sense of humour with me and I'm just making sure she's protected and has got the right people around her."

A source told the Mirror : “Harry loved seeing his grandmother again and he is acutely aware of her advancing years.

“He is desperate for Lily to meet her great-grandmother and for Archie to see her again now he is likely to enjoy and remember the event.”

It’s unclear whether Prince Harry will return to the UK to attend the celebrations for Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Asked whether he would be attending the Duke replied: "I don't know yet. There's lots of things with security issues and everything else. This is what I'm trying to do, trying to make it possible that I can get my kids to meet her."

The Duke was reluctant to go into detail about his current relationship with Princes William and Charles, He did say, however, he still feels a particular closeness with one member of his family, his late mother, Princess Diana.

He said: "It is almost as though she's done her bit with my brother and now she's very much, like, helping me. Got him set up. And now she's helping me set up.

"But now, I feel her presence in almost everything that I do now. But definitely more so in the last two years than ever before. Without question. So she's watching over us."
