RICHARD EDEN: ‘Harry and Meghan  caused Queen Elizabeth real heartache – so who can blame King Charles for snubbing them’ ?

King Charles’ Decision on Meeting Prince Harry

The decision by King Charles to decline a meeting with Prince Harry during his brief return to Britain is well within his prerogative, according to Daily Mail Diary Editor Richard Eden in his recent Palace Confidential newsletter. Anticipation had grown regarding a family reunion at Balmoral to mark the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s passing on September 8. However, it appears unlikely that Harry will be present, as previously reported by Mail on Sunday Assistant Editor Kate Mansey. Instead, King Charles and Queen Camilla are expected to spend the day privately at Balmoral, where Queen Elizabeth passed away, while Prince William and Catherine will lead public tributes at St David’s Cathedral in Wales.

Mixed Reactions and the Apparent Snub

The apparent snub has generated mixed reactions, with some suggesting that Charles should use this opportunity to mend fences with his younger son, who is set to attend a charity awards ceremony in London. However, Eden disagrees with this sentiment. He points out that the California-based couple, Harry and Meghan, exhibited little regard for Harry’s grandparents when they participated in a highly publicized interview with Oprah Winfrey while Prince Philip was undergoing treatment for his final illness. Furthermore, during a period when the Queen’s health was deteriorating, they added to her concerns by announcing Harry’s plans to publish a tell-all memoir and appear in a Netflix series containing additional critiques of the royal family.

The Impact on Queen Elizabeth

Eden reflects on the significant heartache that Harry and Meghan’s actions caused Queen Elizabeth during her final days. Given these circumstances, he suggests that it is understandable if King Charles opts not to meet with the son and daughter-in-law responsible for this distress.
