Harrold found it “odd” that the king didn’t meet with his youngest son while he was in town and attributed that to their relationship being more damaged than people realized.

Speaking on behalf of

There was speculation leading up to Prince Harry‘s U.K. visit about whether King Charles would meet with the Duke of Sussex while was in town to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games. After Harry touched down in London though, it was reported that no such meeting would take place.

Now, someone who used to work for the monarch and knows Harry well is explaining why it’s “odd” that they didn’t see each other.

What King Charles’ ex-aide said about King Charles not making time to see Prince Harry

Grant Harrold was King Charles’ butler from 2004 to 2011. During his time working for the monarch his duties also included that of valet, house manager, and driver. He also looked after Prince William and Prince Harry whenever they stayed at Highgrove House.

Harrold found it “odd” that the king didn’t meet with his youngest son while he was in town and attributed that to their relationship being more damaged than people realized.

Speaking on behalf of Slingo, the former royal aide said: “I don’t know why they didn’t meet. To me, it seemed odd because obviously you would have thought that when a family member is in a country, you would make sure you’ve made a point of going to make appointments with them. The fact the king said he was extremely busy and yes, he was, he had a garden party in the afternoon, and it’s possible that maybe his calendar was very full. Sadly, I think it’s a sign of how much things have deteriorated and shows you the relationship between them has obviously decreased further, and again, the same with Prince William.

“Even now I’m beginning to think maybe there will not be a return point from this because the relationship has been so badly damaged. But as with all things, time can heal. It’s possible one day the relationship — in some shape or form — could be back on the cards but right now I don’t think that’s an option.”
