Prince Harry and King Charles have a strained relationship, but the father-and-son duo have been taking small steps to try and put an end to the Royal Family feud

King Charles and Prince Harry could take the next step in mending their broken relationship when the Duke of Sussex visits London next week.

Harry will travel to the UK to give a reading at St Paul’s Cathedral on May 8 for a special service to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games. Royal expert Tom Quinn believes he will make the time to visit his father after the monarch was diagnosed with cancer.

Speaking exclusively to The Mirror, Quinn said: “It’s going to be very difficult for Harry to come to the UK and not visit his stricken father, King Charles.” He also believes the pair will have a longer meeting than the last time Harry visited.

Quinn said: “When the two meet it will almost certainly be a longer meeting than last time when father and son spent just 30 minutes together, but Camilla is likely to be there simply because she feels so protective of her husband and won’t want him to be upset at such a difficult time. Also, despite much that has been written, Camila is exceptionally diplomatic and good at dealing with difficult situations and difficult people. If anyone can steer comfortably through a meeting with Harry, Camilla can – which is why Charles will want her there.”

The royal author suggested Charles will want to see Harry despite his illness as he “won’t want to be seen to be avoiding his son even if the meeting is awkward and difficult.” Quinn added: “Like William, Charles makes a point always to seem generous and magnanimous. He is aware that this contrasts well with his often-petulant son; Charles and Harry know that everyone will be watching to see if they meet and neither wants to be the one blamed for rejecting the other.”

Harry has previously spoken about his desire to reunite with his family and admitted he felt grateful to be able to visit King Charles when he was diagnosed with cancer. During an appearance on Good Morning America, he said: “Look I love my family. The fact that I was able to get on a plane and go and see him and spend any time with him I’m grateful for that.”

Harry added: “My family and my life in California is as it is. I have got other trips planned. That would take me through the UK or back to the UK, so you know, I’ll stop in and see my family as much as I can.”
