Prince Harry has turned down his father Prince Charles' request to see him during his short stay in the UK, a royal expert claimed.
The Duke of Sussex was allegedly spotted arriving back in the US on the Queen's birthday, and sources later discovered that he had had lunch with Hollywood power player Wallis Annenberg at the extremely private San Vincente Bungalows.
He spent nine days in the UK to attend his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral at St George's Chapel and during his stay, it is believed that Prince Charles asked to see Harry.
Russell Myers, royal editor at Daily Mirror, spoke on talkRADIO and quoted Harry's words when he rejected the one-to-one meeting.
He told host Kevin O'Sullivan: "It's an interesting point because while Harry received quite a frosty reception from some members of the family, there are some that do think to squash these beef with other members of the family would be the right thing to do.
"But whilst he is over the other side of the world, he didn't have the opportunity to come face-to-face with Charles.
"Apparently Charles did want to make time to see Harry but Harry told him, 'Listen, I have got to go'."
Russell also touched on the relationship between Harry and his brother Prince William.
The brothers were seen talking to each other briefly after the funeral as they headed back towards Windsor Castle.
"There was another opportunity to speak to William," he added.
"But it wasn't the right time or the right place to do it at the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral."
Russell believed that it will be very difficult for Harry to "heal wounds and squash arguments" when he is over in the US.
He said: "It's going to be a very long road. I remember watching the Oprah interview and my jaw was on the floor.
"For the people it actually involved, it will be a long road back for them."
