King Charles is ‘too busy’ to see Prince Harry during Harry’s surprise trip to London

Prince Harry stunned the British and international media this morning when he showed up at a High Court in London. No one knew he had flown into London, and there were zero leaks from Montecito, nor were there any leaks from Buckingham Palace. It’s especially notable that there were no palace leaks, because… the palace is now briefing the Telegraph that Harry did contact his father, King Charles, and tell him that he was flying in for this. There’s no word on when Harry called his father or informed the palace of his plans. Also, I have a hard time believing that the palace sat on that information and didn’t leak it to their media friends. Something tells me their media friends will be quite upset about it too.

The Duke of Sussex has arrived at the High Court in London for a hearing in his claim against Daily Mail publisher Associated Newspapers over allegations of unlawful information-gathering. The publisher is bringing a bid to end High Court claims brought by people including Harry, Sir Elton John and Baroness Doreen Lawrence over alleged unlawful activity at its titles.

The Duke has flown from California to London especially for the hearing, the Telegraph understands. Arriving at court this morning, the Duke smiled at the press and bumped into a photographer as he walked into the building.

The hearing was due to coincide with the King’s state visit to France before the trip was cancelled on Friday due to ongoing civil unrest and violence over President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reforms.

The Duke’s presence in court will undoubtedly draw attention to the case and may have overshadowed the visit, had it gone ahead. The King will begin a three-day state visit to Germany on Wednesday.

The Duke is not expected to see his father while he is in the UK. Although he did inform the King that he would be in London he was told his father was “busy”.

The Prince and Princess of Wales and their children are not in London as it is half term.

[From The Telegraph]

LMAOoooo “The Prince and Princess of Wales and their children are not in London as it is half term.” The Sussexes did this last year too – they made a surprise appearance in Windsor to see QEII while Peg and Buttons were on vacation. Charles was surprised by their visit last year too, and he rushed over to see them. Now, all that being said, this was not Harry’s timing choice, this was a High Court hearing determined by the judge and the lawyers. It’s magnificent though – imagine how amazing it would have been if we had images of Harry arriving at the High Court alongside of Charles in Paris, surrounded by protesters and fire.

Which brings me to another question… why is Charles too busy to see his son? President Macron suddenly canceled King Charles’s France visit last Friday, so Charles has nothing but time between now and Wednesday. He truly has an empty schedule! So, the palace briefing the Telegraph about Charles being “too busy” to see Harry means that Harry already told his dad that he (Harry) is too busy, right?

    Harry isn’t there to see him, what can’t Charles and his egg head son not comprehend? They did not know he was coming, otherwise they would’ve leaked it and endangered his life again.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      Why change a habit of a lifetime? The king barely saw his children when they all lived in the same postcode. Plus I’m sure those coronation thrones and carriages won’t polish themselves. Funny thing is it’s the king that now needs to be seen with Harry, not the other way around.

      • Cara says:

        “The king barely saw his children when they all lived in the same postcode.”

        Elizabeth Regina, you are right on the nose about this. Did Charles ever visit with Archie when he lived right there on the Windsor estate? Charles attended the christening but it seems like that was just about the only time he ever saw Archie. (The Queen didn’t even bother to attend though. I always sensed that her absence was very hurtful to Meghan. It was like their baby didn’t matter.) The Sussex family probably could have moved away without announcing it and no one in the royal family would have noticed for years!!

      • SMS says:

        The Queen missed several christenings, including Prince Louis and Isla Phillips as well as Archie. I don’t think you can read anything into it other than her schedule and age limited her.

    • HennyO says:

      Exactly, the media, the royals and the firm are caught by surprise by Prince Harry showing up at court, today; he didn’t have to. I truly believe he didn’t inform this father.
      Now Elton too has turned up at court. This is the world news the Daily Fail didn’t want.

      Take the UKpress & UKMedia basters down, Harry and Elton. #phonehackingtrial

  2. girl_ninja says:

    Charles is the definition of “You played yourself.” Harry is a sincere person there for serious business. Not to beg for your attention and kiss your “Emperor With No Clothes” on ass.

    • Taytanish says:

      Plus, these trips and events are planned way ahead of time, and most especially since Duke of Sussex is in London for a limited time. This means that Charles was never factored into this schedule since he was due to be in Paris this weekend. So, the notion that Duke of Sussex is begging to see his father while his father turns him down saying “he’s busy” is just plain absurd and just wishful thinking on the BRF/BM part. The Duke has no time in his bushy tight schedule to meet with nor see Chuck, plain and simple. Chuck would be in Paris today if Macron had not stopped his desperate arse.

      • Elizabeth Regina says:

        Very well said.

      • SarahLee says:

        The funny thing is that even the British media isn’t going with the narrative that “Harry asked to see the King but he was busy.” They are saying Harry informed Charles that he was coming. Period. Adding as an aside that the King is busy. My guess is Harry informed Charles from the air on approach to Heathrow.

      • Taytanish says:

        See, I don’t even believe the Duke informed Chuckie of anything. All this leaking is just to save face. First of all, all Charles’ calls are screened first, Harry has no direct line to his father, he has to go through his father’s aides to talk to him etc. So if Harry had called and informed anybody, even if he has called while on the flight enroute to London, the. fools. would. have. leaked, period… The fact that there were no leaks is dead giveaway, there was zero communication between Harry and Chuckie, zero.

      • Maggie says:

        If he flew private no one would have to know. The reason there was not a whiff- he told no one at BP

      • Gabby says:

        You’re right, @SarahLee. There is a clip of a royal correspondent on the very Anti-Harry GB News wondering aloud (with some real side-eye) as to how Chuckles could have already filled up his schedule after the last minute France cancellation.

      • Debbie says:

        The story above looks like a real face-saving narrative. I don’t believe that Harry informed Charles of anything, otherwise his presence would have been leaked by those leaking leakers in the British royal family.

      • Ellen says:

        Prince Harry was in Miami, waiting for his flight to Heathrow the day before the Court Case. He was seen at the Airport and a picture was posted on twitter. Not many people caught it. I saw it about 2 am est

  3. equality says:

    If old dad was too busy to see me while I was in town, I would be too busy to attend his con. If KC knew ahead of time he must not have told Cam or she would have leaked it somewhere.

    • ThatsNotOkay says:

      Leaky Tampon definitely would have told all her tabloid friends.

      And Charles probably would have wanted to see Harry in person, but needs to save face. If it happens to happen, we know who’s going to do the telling/spinning.

    • Busy my ass. Chuckles is angry that Harry (stealth man) has very quietly come to London. I think Harry will be too busy to see Chuckles. He will do his court thing and maybe one of his charities and then he will get out of town.

      • Jenna says:

        I think Harry really does wish to speak to his father–alone.
        If his father called and asked Harry to come speak with him about the Chubbly, Harry absolutely would have gone. All he wants is a freaking apology and to actually speak to his father in person.

        KCIII is such a coward–he won’t meet with Harry because he is not used to confrontation.

      • Feeshalori says:

        You bet Charles (and William) is boiling in rage that Harry arrived in the country incognito despite all attempts to keep him out or have foreknowledge of his movements unless it’s under their control. Harry’s saying you can’t exile me because I can move freely whenever I want, you won’t know a thing, and you can’t do a damned thing about it. Freedom looks very good on him.

      • Cessily says:

        Chucky was supposed to be in Paris, I highly doubt any of them knew Prince Harry was coming for the trial. It makes no sense that he would inform them or even plan to see them since they were scheduled to be out of the country. This is just Chucky having another geriatric temper tantrum. This article just makes Chuck and the BRF look absolutely pathetic, they would have been better off keeping their mouths shut and not briefed this petty garbage.

    • EM says:

      From my standpoint, being too busy to attend my daughter’s Christening would’ve made the decision for me. It’s not like Charles lacks the financial resources nor does he have a job that interferes with his attendance. At this point they are family in name only but that’s easier said than done (I know from experience). Ultimately, he’ll do what’s right for himself and family.

    • Lizzie says:

      Charles has been too busy for Harry for exactly 38 years.

  4. Louise177 says:

    It doesn’t matter if Charles is too busy to see Harry. He probably made no plans to see Charles since he’s there for a hearing and Charles was expected to be out of the country. More like Charles is trying to make it look he’s snubbing Harry.

    • Lux says:

      I bet Harry was initially relieved that his visit coincided with his father’s Paris misadventure. Now that it’s been abruptly cancelled, Charles’ “too busy to see his son” narrative is just his incel reaction to too much rejection. There is no end to the people who won’t see, receive or perform for King Charles.

  5. Snuffles says:

    “There’s no word on when Harry called his father or informed the palace of his plans. ”

    My guess is he told him while he was in the car on the way to court.

    And, you’re right, Charles DOES have time. Even if he was “busy”, the man still stops to eat dinner every night. No reason Harry couldn’t join him then.

    • Seraphina says:

      @Snuffles, I agree. I think he informed his father last minute and chuck is mad and thus there is no time to see him. Harry is not playing by their rules so they are punishing Harry in that way. It’s a dangerous game to play.

    • Becks1 says:

      This is what I think happened. Or Harry called him as his plane was pulling up to the gate at Heathrow or whatever.

    • Amy Bee says:

      @Snuffles: My guess the Palace didn’t know until they saw it on the news. There’s no way the Palace would have sat on that information.

  6. Emily_C says:

    Of course Buckingham Palace is trying to cover their asses by lying that Harry told his father, but we know he did not. Because if he had, Chuck would have leaked it.

    Chuck may very well be claiming he’s “too busy” to see his son. It’s a common narcissist parent’s lie, particularly after they’ve acted poorly.

    • Whyforthelove says:

      This is what I believe happened too! You can’t be too busy to see me! I’m too busy to see YOU! Nanny nanny foo foo. Not a great look Chuck. Will is probably so mad he is throwing Kate’s wigglets at the wall.

    • Taytanish says:

      Prince Harry has stated time and again, even when he was still in the Firm, that these people never communicate like us normal folks. Even speaking with your own father, one has to go through Chuck’s (now king) aides before you can speak to the man himself. There is no way Harry would endanger himself by informing his father’s minions that he was in town. I think they learned about Harry’s presence in London at the same time as the rest of us. This all narrative about Harry informing anyone is just bull💩.

  7. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Charles broke up with Harry in the press after Harry broke up with him in private.

  8. Nat says:

    It means, Harry didn’t try to contact them then.
    If it was the case, they would have leaked the information already especially with the whole France debacle, it would have made a new big splash. They didn’t know he was in England, they clearly didn’t know he would come to the Court.
    They are predictable and it’s how easily you can see these people are always lying. They keep showing themselves pretty stupidly.
    Also, to this day, I’m still certain Charles didn’t met Harry and Meghan last April before the Invictus Games, the whole leak around the presence of Charles felt so laughable and you can see it was just trying to put himself in the situation and Harry said he met his grandmother and never spoke of his dad in that instance. And still took time to push the idea he was close to his father. So in both instances it’s Charles saving face for not knowing something about Harry’s presence in England.

    • TheWigletOfWails says:

      Why are they trying to insert themselves into Harry’s life? Snubbing him in this situation makes no sense as he’s in the UK because of his lawsuit and not a family visit. They could have not said anything.

      • Whyforthelove says:

        Not saying anything and being smart in their silence does not appear to be the Palace’s MO

  9. Cimorene says:

    But it’s also… not half term, lol. That’s next week.

    • Jais says:


    • Jojo says:

      And even then it’s not half term. It’s the UK end of term 2 week Easter holiday. Someone, (someone with no children themselves?) penned an article too hastily methinks 🤣.

    • SarahCS says:

      Half term has been and gone, the Easter holidays are coming up. Although different schools are on slightly different schedules and here the more you pay the less they attend so Lamebrook could already have broken up. Just for not half term.

    • Whyforthelove says:

      I guess Kate got mixed up on the dates since she doesn’t have her ball-busting private secretary LMAO

    • Maeve says:

      Lambrook finished for Easter break on Friday, they go back on the 19th of April. Private schools have different hols.

    • Pumpkin (Was Sofia) says:

      The kids go to a private school and they all set their own dates so it’s entirely possible it’s already the holidays for them. But you’re right that it’s not half term but the full term Easter break.

    • Christine says:

      This is a particularly stupid detail, since the Wails kids don’t go to school in London anymore…so why would they be there, exactly?

  10. Seraphina says:

    An excuse is the easiest to find when one doesn’t want to do something.

  11. Bunny says:

    Why didn’t Charles want to see Harry? Be use William married and has children. The spare is no longer needed.

    The BRF is malignant. Harry was right to leave. I’m sure he misses them, but they will never be the loving family he wishes they were.

    • Emily_C says:

      Charles has always been jealous of Harry, too. Some parents do not love their children.

      • Seraphina says:

        Yes, Charles has always been jealous of anyone who takes any attention away from him. He needs some type of therapy. And I assume that is why he is with Cams – her horseface won’t steal any of his thunder. Yeah, I said it.

      • MsDoe says:

        Charles never loved Diana, and so of course does not love her children, especially not the child who is most like her. As a self-centred, egotistical narcissist, Charles isn’t capable of love to begin with; because Diana was ultimately such a threat and bother, and her son proving likewise, Charles may well loathe and even hate Harry.

    • RiaH says:

      He may not miss THEM, but rather the idea of what could have been. It took me a long time to understand the difference in those two things when it came to my family.

      • Emily_C says:

        @RiaH: Exactly. We tell ourselves stories of what our family is to survive starting as small children. It’s necessary. Once it’s no longer necessary, it still hurts like hell to give up the myth. It takes a lot of us until middle age, if we can do it at all. But after reading Spare, I believe Harry has come a long way toward coming to terms with the truth.

      • MsDoe says:

        That is the hardest, most deep-seated, yearning of which to let go. I finally did once I learned that my father had basically left me to die. Pulling Harry’s security is the same as leaving him to die. I hope that Harry has come to the conclusion that whatever semblance of love Charles had given him as his father, it was just that, a semblance, and not the real thing, and that Charles is incapable of real love. His love is conditional on Harry fulfilling the role and behaviour determined by Charles (and Camilla as his closest advisor).

  12. Maxine Branch says:

    So obvious the UK folks including Harry’s relatives were clueless he was coming. To save face, old dad, I am too busy. The jokes write themselves.😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  13. TheWigletOfWail says:

    Since Chuckles is claiming that he’s too busy to see Harry, I hope he understands when Harry says he’s too busy to come to the chubbly. No more extending olive branches and what not.

    • Patricia says:

      Poor Charles and William. They finally realize that the wrong son was born first. Oh well, I would have loved to hear about Good King Harry instead of Bulliam and his temper tantrums.

  14. Laura D says:

    Of course Charles is too busy to see his son. He can’t be seen to be fraternising with the enemy. Charles picked his side a long time ago but, with any luck he’ll find out the hard way that siding with the media cockroaches was a very bad move.

  15. Brassy Rebel says:

    The palace could have leaked it but no one published it because this is embarrassing for the media. Harry showing up forces them to acknowledge what is happening when they would rather pretend it’s not.

  16. Tennyson.Sarah says:

    I wouldn’t trust one word coming from Vicky Ward, she who wrote Vanity Fair’s article The Talented Mr Epstein, was buddy with Ghislaine Maxwell for years, but above all didn’t report the confidences of the Farmer sisters who told her about being abused by Epstein back in 2002.
    She also behaved disgracefully by publishing photos of Mallory Beach’s corpse in the Murdaugh boat crash.
    That woman has no morals.

  17. UNCDANCER says:

    This is nothing but face saving on Buck Palace’s part. They didn’t know Harry would be there. But they needed to pretend they have some power so out they trot the King is busy excuse. Pathetic.

  18. Digital Unicorn says:

    This means the palace didn’t know about the trip hence the scrambling to say ‘too busy’. If they knew it would have leaked end of.

    Wonder how long it will take for the UK media to yank WandK’s chains.

  19. Becks1 says:

    LMAO Charles as nothing but time this week to see Harry but for some reason I don’t think Harry was begging to see him.

    I am howling at the line about the Wales’ being on vacation yet again.

    • Over it says:

      Lol. I meant to tell you guys that we won’t be seeing the laziest two on the planet for at least the next 3-4 weeks because their children and others in schools like them have about 3 and a half weeks of holiday.

    • Acha says:

      Abuser running away from the guy who called him out. Run like the coward you are, Willy.

  20. Over it says:

    You can’t be too busy to see me if I never had any Plans on seeing you . Hence why I called your dog-sh-it ass on my way to the courthouse.

  21. Amy says:

    How can you be “too busy” to share a damned meal with your child whom you rarely see? They act like you need to make an appointment. Dysfunctional family that can’t put the “fun” in dysfunctional…

  22. Acha says:

    I respect Harry’s priorities. He has all the time in the world to make sure justice is served, not just for himself but for his friends and the people of England.
    But he has zero time for lying machinating phonies who can’t be emotionally mature.

  23. Tessa says:

    Charles continues to show what a horrible father he is.

    • TheWigletOfWails says:

      I just hope Harry finally sees and hears all the 💩 the BaRF and BM have been saying about him and his family and makes the decision to stay away from the chubbly.

  24. Ihatepeople says:

    I dunno. It’s sad that he won’t make time to see his son. However that is the problem really. The royals have never parented their children. Charles learned to neglect his kids because he was neglected. Harry is a cycle breaker.

  25. Naomi says:

    At the very least, the whole Met Police protection situation is still unresolved (as far as I know), so it would be in Harry’s best interests safety-wise to not living a breathing word about his visit to anyone, including his father.

    So, not only for emotional reasons but also for logistical/safety reasons: there’s no way he told Charles he was coming.

  26. s808 says:

    Highly doubt Harry had any plans to see Charles but thanks for telling us you’re a dogsh*t father unprovoked once again!

  27. Tessa says:

    Charles also was coddled by the queen mother who enabled his self centered behavior. Charles is to blame for his being so egocentric he could not work on his first marriage and saw having heirs more of a duty. This is all on Charles.

  28. Tessa says:

    Harry never heard one word of protest to the media from his father about Clarkson vile article about Meghan and the recent horrifying comment by jobson about archie.

  29. DaniM says:

    I thought Harry was so hungry for media attention, though?

    NO leaks come through Montecito. Ever.

    Also…..can William please get rid of that fluff that’s hanging on for dear life? It only emphasises what is already forever lost.

  30. Maggy Shannon says:

    It’s a terrible tragedy they cannot make seeing one another a priority. Especially since they now are separated by half the globe!

    A great deal—possibly most—of the dysfunction in the British Royal Family is explained by the headline “too busy.”

    A notice to King Charles—your children must always come first.

    • Emily_C says:

      It is not a “tragedy” that Harry has given up on his narcissistic abusive father who held him under a bus his whole life and then left him to die by pulling his security. It is a triumph that Harry has escaped.

  31. Cel2495 says:

    Very much doubt that they knew he was coming otherwise they would have leaked the info left and right. Harry did not tell them shit, showed up at the courts and then perhaps have one of his team communication member send a message to his father team that he is in town. That prob was the level of communication if there was any. Otherwise I think he did not told them 💩, showed up in court and will be flying out this very night out via private jet.

    I don’t think either he requested to see his father … wild dreams. Harry is done with this psychos and is just there for his case and that’s it.

  32. Noor says:

    perhaps Charles is too busy… too busy pretending that he did not hear his royal biographer, Robert Jobson saying that Charles would be holding Prince Archie over the balcony on his birthday

  33. aquarius64 says:

    No time for Harry, Chuck? Congratulations, you just gave the Sussexes an out for the Con-a-Nation.

  34. Ace says:

    At most Harry sent a text message to his father before getting on a plane to London saying he was dropping by and Chuck only saw it in the morning right before Harry showed up at court. I don’t believe they knew in advance or it would have leaked.

    In any case Harry didn’t go to London to see his father or brother, so he won’t lose any sleep if they are too busy for him.

  35. Pumpkin (Was Sofia) says:

    I mean it’s not like Harry is here to see Charles anyways lol. He’s here to participate in a lawsuit and perhaps visit his charities. If Charles wants to see him then maybe Harry will go but if he doesn’t then that’s fine because again, that is not on his agenda.

  36. Amy Bee says:

    I don’t believe the Palace knew Harry was coming if they did they would have leaked it to the press. Furthermore how can Charles be busy when he was supposed to be in Paris today. I’m just sorry Charles trip to Paris was postponed, it would have been delicious to see the press cry about Harry overshadowing his first international trip as King. Anyway, Charles’ trip to Germany has been overshadowed before it has started. I love it!

  37. Beverley says:

    Dogshit Charlie hasn’t any time for his own son?
    Well, what goes around comes around. Harry & Meghan might be “too busy” for the Con-a-nation.


  38. QuiteContrary says:

    Charles always seems to have time, though, to reveal what a crappy father he is.

  39. Mel says:

    I call BS on this. I doubt Harry said anything to Charles because not a soul knew he was there or they would have been leaking all over the place. This is an attempt to make Charles look like he’s still “in charge” when it comes to Harry. Oh, well I said I didn’t have time for him is better than , I had no idea he was coming because he’s over us.

  40. Yvette says:

    Charles didn’t have to rush over to see Harry and Meghan last year, he was already at Windsor Castle to fill in for the Queen at an annual church service for senior citizens:

    “The visit to the queen came on Maundy Thursday, a day in the week before Easter that the queen for decades marked by distributing silver coins known as “Maundy money” to pensioners at a church service. This year the queen, who has been experiencing mobility issues in recent months and came down with COVID-19 in February, did not attend. She was represented by her eldest son, Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla.”

    I don’t know if the event was always held in the chapel at Windsor or if it was moved there last year due to the Queen’s increasing mobility issues.

    It was one of the ‘pensioners’ arriving with a group on a bus for this special church service who noticed Harry and Meghan walking toward Windsor Castle and alerted the media. Harry was probably surprised to find his father there, but he and Meghan were told by a Palace aide that the Queen wanted them to meet with Prince Charles before they could have an audience with her. Charles only had 5 or 10 minutes to talk with them because they arrived just before start of the church service.

  41. Mary Pester says:

    Can you imagine the phone calls going on at the moment? Camzilla screams at Charlie “why didn’t you tell me that YOUR son is in London!” Charlie says “of course BULLYAM is in London, his children have broken up and they are off on holiday AGAIN!” Camzilla screams back “Are you really that stupid you ridiculous old man, I’m talking about Henry, Henry is in London” Charlie says “who is Henry /Why are you so angry you old shrew!”? Camzilla says oh for the love of God, stop talking to that bloody tree and listen to me, Harry, Harry is in London! Charles cries “oh god has he taken over the Palace?”, NO, you bloody half wit, it’s for his court action against the press “! Charlie grabs the phone, calls his men in grey suits” why am I paying you, and WHY aren’t you leaking the story that Harry is in London! “but your majesty, we didn’t know” Charlie screams” but why didn’t you know! It’s your Job to know everything he does, you are giving the press all the information they want, what if they turn on us? “to which the little grey man says” your majesty we thought people would be to distracted by your wonderful coronation plans to care about harry “Charlie throws the phone at camzilla” phone BULLYAM now if you want to be queen and make him do something “.
    Camzilla phones BULLYAM, but all she can hear is” sorry the person you are trying to reach is unavailable at the moment as he is on holiday “meanwhile Kate is still in the freezer section of the Iceland store singing” let it go “for the 20,000th time while all the dogs in the neighbourhood are outside howling

        @TEAGIRL, oops sorry about that lovey, but we have to have a laugh or we would all be crying over the treatment of OUR prince and his family wouldn’t we. and I spend my time watching the news over here in the UK, alternating between screaming at the television (the neighbours make allowances lol) and trying to turn it around in my head to the comedy show that passes for a royal family over here. Oh, and my morphine helps with that lol

    • SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

      They should hire you as a scriptwriter on The Windsors.

  42. Okay says:

    I think Harry did it this way because of security concerns. Seeing his father was not even on his mind. He just wanted this day in court and maybe visit a few charities and Fogmore then bolt back to Cali. I also don’t think he contacted Charles at all. This tells me something very interesting and I hope its true… that he isn’t going to go to the Snubbly, has made no demands and is not negotiating it at all. He is simply handling business and sending a signal to Charles even if its not what he intended that “if you want to see or talk to me, you know where and how to reach me” and to Will “shove it, I will come to the UK whenever the hell I please.

    • Kingston says:

      From your fingers to God’s ears! I’m also steadfastly holding on to the view that H&M will NOT attend the CONanation. And today’s development gives me further hope that they won’t.

      BTW……how much advance notice is expected for such a large event as the CONanation? I would think at least a month……4 wks.

      So by the end of next wk we shouldn’t be surprised to see leaked & briefed stories from the usual “palace sources/royal aides/experts” etc. about the Sussexes and the negative spin on whatever their response is.

    Charles and William could easily work out a way to visit Harry, without all kinds of drama or PR.
    What a pair of turds they truly are.
    The PtB or security teams must have known he was coming to UK.
    Could Elton John broker a peace meeting at his place? Sneak everyone over at midnight, for an hour, sneak back. I’d love that. 💕

    I KNOW I’m dreaming.

  44. Scout says:

    I think there will be an unofficial private visit. Short. Impersonal. But a visit.

  45. Vanessa says:

    This a classic palace bull shit they had no idea Harry was in the country the palace and especially Charles look clueless . So now we have the palace version of course they knew and to top all off they will insist that Harry was desperate to see Charles and William but both of them are so busy and Harry is just so desperately to see them to be back in the royal folded .

  46. Jay says:

    Stealth Harry strikes again! It sounds like he got a flight in, testified and either the palace found out from the news coverage or H made a courtesy call once he was about to leave U.K. airspace. Amazing.

    Also, I am chuckling that this inadvertently exposed the Wails already being on vacation, and Charles’ empty schedule. His trip to France was cancelled suddenly, so there’s no way they suddenly have plans. Let’s just call it like it is: He’s in his palace, hiding from his son.

    • Klum says:

      Harry has not left the UK. He is still there and will most likely be there for a few days. The hearing is 4 days. He’s been there since Sunday morning.
      He most likely informed them after he landed.
      There could be a possibility that Charles and William knew a day before and made sure to leave Windsor as a result. We’ll never really know.

  47. Dee Kay says:

    This tells me Harry is done with his father and brother and will not be attending the coronation. He will come and go in the UK as he pleases (as long as he can bring his own security and they deem the risk levels acceptable), and he will not speak to his father or brother again unless they apologize and ask to meet with him personally to make amends and repair their personal relationships. Which they will never do. Harry is reconciled to that truth. He is living his life’s purposes — to love and support his own family, to stand up for what is right even if it means going against huge entrenched institutions like the British Media, and to help people around the world.

  48. Well Wisher says:

    That was fast…It is as if there is a direct link from BP and the Telegraph. This visit is not about the family business so there was no links. It demonstrates that the monarch and heir has prioritized their relationship with the uk media business entities.
    Charles is too busy, thankfully the Wales are on break.
    All’s good….

    • Well Wisher says:

      Edit: There was no leaks….

      The relationship between the monarch/heir and media is more important than that of their son and brother.

  49. Jojo says:

    Can’t see my son because I’m…

    Too busy…

    ok Jan 🙄

    Let me correct that for you Chucky you
    C U Next Tuesday of a dad…

    Can’t see my son because I’m…

    Too childish
    Too selfish
    Too petulant
    Too unfeeling
    Too proud
    Too callous
    Too bad a father
    Too self-centred
    Too stupid
    Too emotionally stunted

    I could go on but personally I’m…

    Too Over this waste of space, septuagenarian, man-child. He disgusts me.

  50. jferber says:

    Jojo, perfectly stated. He’s having a pissing contest with his own son, trying to be the more important one, the busier one, the one with people to see and things to do. But that’s bollocks. It’s all show and gamesmanship. And he STILL expects Harry to come to his Chubbly. The effing nerve, honestly.
