Charles desperate to see Archie and Lilibet as Harry snubs UK visit – expert

Prince Charles is becoming "absolutely desperate" to see Archie and Lilibet as hopes of Prince Harry bringing them back to the UK soon grow slim, according to a royal expert.

The Prince of Wales may have to accept not seeing his grandchildren for a "long time" as the Sussexes stall their expected visit over safety fears, says the Mirror's Royal Editor Russell Myers.

The Duke of Sussex has filed a claim for judicial review in UK courts over the Home Office's refusal to let him pay for police to guard him when he next comes back to his country of birth.

He wants to bring Meghan Markle as well as his son and daughter on a visit from the US, but claims his family are “unable to return to his home” because it is too dangerous, a legal representative said.

Reflecting on the effect of this row on Charles, Mr Myers told Nine News Today in Australia: "I know Prince Charles is absolutely desperate to see his grandchildren but as I said Prince Harry has really put himself in a difficult position.

"He's saying that it's more a dangerous place than California coming back to London because of this security row.

"We'll just have to see, won't we? If he doesn't sort this business out with the Home Office and the British Government then we might not see him for a long, long time."

The comments come after a Palace butler claimed Harry's decision to not attend his grandfather Philip's memorial service will leave Prince William and Charles "disappointed".

The Duke of Sussex caused some upset among Royal Fans when he recently announced he would not be attending the service at Westminster Abbey this month, but would be flying to Holland for the Invictus Games in April.

A spokesperson added that Harry will be visiting the Queen "soon".
