Since then, Harry has only reunited with his father a handful of times, with Charles only meeting his granddaughter, Lilibet, days before her first birthday, during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Sadly, reconciliation may still be off the cards as the royal family brace for Harry’s upcoming memoir. The contents of which could ‘shake the monarch to its core’ and take aim at Harry’s mother-in-law, Duchess Camilla. As of yet, there is no confirmed release day, with the book facing delays over its ‘truth bombs’ (opens in new tab).
This comes as the Sussexes as also set to return to the UK this month for two charity engagements, though meetings with the royal family have been confirmed.
