Prince Harry ‘had secret meeting’ with Charles during UK trip, claims insider

Prince Harry had a one-to-one dinner with his dad Prince Charles while he was recently back in the UK "to rebuild their strained relationship", it has been reported.

Prince Harry returned to the UK at the end of June for the unveiling of his mother's, Princess Diana, statue in the gardens of Kensington Palace.

The event was held on July 1, which would have been Diana's 60th birthday, and was the first time Harry and Prince William were seen together since the funeral of their grandfather Prince Philip.

And while Harry was back in the UK, he reportedly met with his dad for dinner, the Daily Mail reports.

The report states that Charles had not been looking forward to the meal, however.

"A nervous Charles was said to be 'dreading' the dinner—presumably in case he made some faux pas which could be misconstrued and repeated to the Duchess of Sussex back home in California," according to the Daily Mail report.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, previously told Oprah Winfrey in his and wife Meghan Markle's bombshell interview that there was a "lot of hurt" between him and his father and said Charles had stopped taking his calls.

In the interview, Harry also revealed that "my family cut me off financially".

He said he feels "really let down" by the Prince of Wales and added that "there's a lot of hurt that's happened".

Speaking in the explosive interview with Oprah, Prince Harry said: "When we were in Canada, I had three conversations with my grandmother and two conversations with my father, before he stopped taking my calls."

He added: "By that point, I took matters into my own hands. I need to do this for my family.

"I’ve got to do something for my own mental health, for my wife’s, and for Archie."

And he said he felt "really let down" by his father, saying: "He knows what pain feels like.

"Of course I will always love him but there's a lot of hurt that's happened and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that."

And recently speaking to the American actor Dax Shepard for his Armchair Expert podcast, discussing his childhood, Harry said: "There is no blame.

"I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.

"It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say: ‘You know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.’"
