Prince Harry is unlikely to meet with either his father King Charles or brother Prince William when he returns for a brief visit ahead of his and Meghan Markle’s trip to Nigeria, an expert has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex is expected back in the UK on May 8 to mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of the Invictus Games.

Royal author and commentator Angela Levin, however, dismissed speculation suggesting the royal could use his visit to see the Prince of Wales or the King.

Harry will attend a commemorative service at St. Paul’s Cathedral before “rushing off” to be reunited with the Duchess of Sussex in Nigeria to meet with service members and take part in a variety of cultural activities.

Speaking to GB News, Levin said Harry will be “whizzing off” to see Meghan who will be in Africa. She opined: “He won’t be going to see his father or brother. It’s said that he won’t be here for very long.

“He won’t see anybody, but he’s no longer very popular. For the last couple of years, I have had lots of emails from people saying, ‘Can’t you stop it?'”

Harry was last in the UK in February, when he rushed to London within 24 hours of Buckingham Palace announcing the King had been diagnosed with cancer.

The Duke managed to meet with Charles but the pair is believed to have limited their time together to just 30 minutes.

Levin added: “But he’s going to rush off to Africa to meet Meghan there. You see, it’s been said that she’s not coming and he’ll have to rush off.”

Harry and Meghan’s visit to Nigeria follows and invite from the country’s highest-ranking military officer, the Chief of Defense Staff.

Prince William and Prince Harry ‘never really will’ solve feud

Nigeria, along with Israel and Colombia, was one of the newest participants in last year’s Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar Badaru, the Nigerian Minister of Defence, attended the games then and expressed his country’s interest in hosting a future edition.

During his opening speech at the German games, the Duke remarked Meghan would be supporting the Nigerian team in honour of her background.

He said: “Now, I’m not saying we play favourites in our home, but since my wife discovered she’s of Nigerian descent, it’s likely to get a little bit more competitive this year.”

Meghan revealed during an episode of her Spotify podcast Archetype that she had recently discovered she was 43 percent Nigerian after taking a genealogy test.
