William having ‘proper family time’ before Coronation without Harry

Prince William and Kate get ‘council estate’ makeover

Prince William has “no reason” to meet up with Prince Harry while his younger brother is in London as he would not want to “spoil” holiday time with his children, according to a royal expert. The Prince and Princess of Wales are said to be enjoying their children’s Easter holiday break and some “family time” away from Windsor before the Coronation in May.

The Duke of Sussex has returned to the UK this week for the preliminary hearing in a privacy lawsuit against Associated Newspapers Limited, but is not expected to see William or the King while he is in the country.

It is the first time he has been seen in London since the publication of his controversial memoir Spare in January, which made a number of damaging allegations against the Firm.

Royal author Ingrid Seward told The Mirror: “Of all the members of the family William comes in for the worst criticism in Spare.

“There is no reason for him to want to see the brother who trashed him. It is the children’s half term and a rare opportunity for them all to be together in their Norfolk home.

“They kept Anmer Hall for just such occasions. The children have their ponies and pets there and they have the freedom to have fun on the King’s Norfolk estate.

“It will be their last opportunity to have proper family time before the Coronation. They don’t need Harry to spoil things yet again.”

It is thought King Charles will be too “busy” to see Harry as he has jetted off to Berlin for his first official state visit as monarch.

Ms Seward added that even Harry would not expect Charles to postpone a state visit to see him, claiming the prince is “not as brave” as he makes out.

She explained: “Any ordinary father would expect to see their son when he paid a rare visit to the UK from abroad.

“But Charles is not an ordinary father. He is King and as such has appointments every 20 minutes of his day. In between, he has letters to sign, state documents to read and meetings to attend.

“When the state visit to France was cancelled his diary was immediately filled with urgent pending issues. Being King is not a part-time post.

“Neither is being a father, but Charles has little reason to want a confrontation with Harry after his disloyalty to his family in his book Spare. Maybe Harry had no desire to see his father either.

“Charles and Camilla were due to be out of the country when he arrived in the UK. Harry would have never envisaged something as politically sensitive as a state visit being postponed.

“Harry is not quite as brave as he makes out he is. However much noise he might have made about wanting a discussion, being ushered into Clarence House to meet with an irate and disappointed father was almost certainly not on his agenda.”

The King had been due to be in France for the first half of this week, however the trip was pulled at the last minute due to violent protests in the country over pension reforms.
