Harry and Meghan ‘turn down Queen’s sleepover invite to Archie and Lilibet’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly turned down offers from both the Queen and Prince Charles to visit them during their time in the UK this week.

The revelations were revealed on Tuesday morning, when royal expert Katie Nicholl claimed that the pair had rejected two invitations so far during their brief trip to the UK.

According to Katie, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex turned down invitations to meet with the Queen and Prince Charles, much to the heartbreak of both, as they had been looking forward to reconnecting with their grandchildren.

Speaking on GB News Breakfast with Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster, Katie said: “I can tell you exclusively that they were invited at the end of August.

“The Queen always has this wonderful, extended stay for her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. There's a big sleepover at Balmoral, they were invited to go to that.

“They were also invited to go to Birkhall with the Prince of Wales and thus far they haven't done it.”

In recent weeks, rumours have been circulating of a growing feud between Harry and his father, as tensions in the family remain strained since Harry and Meghan’s decision to emigrate to the US, but this is something that Prince Charles is keen to remedy.

Katie continued: “I know from sources very close to the Prince of Wales that he is prepared to do anything it will take to get this relationship back on track, I think not least because he wants to as a father.


“He wants to see his children as a grandfather, but I think he's acutely aware that if there is this rift that threatens to overshadow his future reign as well. There are other issues at play here.”

She also went on to explain that we were unlikely to see any comment from the palace on the claims either.

“Of course, we aren’t getting any official comment from the palace because if it happens, it'll be a private meeting.

“But everything I'm hearing is that there is still very much rift and let's not forget there is Harry's autobiography to come.

“They don't want to perhaps see him for risk of something being leaked.”


This mood seems to echo with Harry’s older bother Prince William too, who still appears to be on far from rosy terms with his sibling since his decision to move to the US with his wife and children.

When asked if Meghan is the reason why the two brothers cannot meet together, Katie said: “I think there are many reasons but I think ultimately if you were to ask me what I think the key reason is from everything.

"I'm told I don't think William can forgive his brother for what he's done and how he's done it, in terms of not just leaving the royal family, throwing them under a bus and his treatment of the royal family today.

“Constantly. This threat of ‘what are they going to say next?’"
