Prince Harry has opened up about a meeting he dreaded with his father, King Charles III, and brother, Prince William, during a poignant event in the Royal Family. The Duke of Sussex, who returned to the UK in 2021 for his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral, spoke about his anxiety on that day after King Charles III and Prince William “changed their minds” about meeting him.

Prince Harry left the Royal Family in 2020 alongside his wife Meghan Markle and their son, Prince Archie. The couple later accused the Royal Family of racism towards their son and publicly aired their grievances on television. Now residing in California, Harry and Meghan have also welcomed their daughter, Princess Lilibet.

Writing in his memoir ‘Spare,’ Prince Harry revealed: “Then, at last, I saw them. Shoulder to shoulder, striding towards me, they looked grim, almost menacing. Moreover, they looked tightly aligned. My stomach dropped. Normally they’d be squabbling about one thing or another, but now they appeared to be in lockstep – in league. The thought occurred: Hang on, are we meeting for a walk…or a duel?”

Reflecting on the tense moments surrounding his return, Harry shared how the anticipated meeting with his father and brother added to the emotional weight of the occasion. His candid remarks shed light on the strained relationships within the royal family and the challenges he faced upon his return to the UK.

Harry’s departure from royal duties and the subsequent accusations of racism have significantly impacted his relationship with the Royal Family. Despite the distance and the public controversies, his return for Prince Philip’s funeral marked a critical moment of reconnection and reflection.

As Harry and Meghan continue their lives in California, they remain in the public eye, balancing their commitments to personal causes with the ongoing scrutiny of their past and present actions. The Duke’s recollections of his apprehension about meeting his father and brother highlight the deep and complex emotions involved in navigating his royalties.
