Prince Harry reportedly refused to dine with Charles and William on the night his grandmother died because he was so furious at Meghan being banned from Balmoral while the Queen was on her death bed.
On September 8, as the Queen was dying at her beloved Balmoral holiday home, the royal family rushed to be by her side.
Harry, who was in the midst of a European tour with Meghan, initially made plans for the pair to attend together — before being informed it would not be appropriate for the Duchess of Sussex to attend.
The change in plans caused Harry to miss his flight, arriving late at the castle — minutes after the Queen’s death was confirmed in a statement to the world.
A royal source told The Sun that he was so upset by Meghan Markle being snubbed that he refused an open invitation to dine with his father and brother at Birkhall, Charles’ home on the estate.
“Charles has an open invitation for Harry to dine with him whenever he is in the country. But Harry was so furious that he refused to eat with his father and brother.”
“It was a massive snub. And he got out of Balmoral at the earliest opportunity to catch the first commercial flight back to London.”
Harry reportedly spent the evening nearby with his uncle Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
Despite the dinner snub, Prince Harry and Meghan still agreed to a public appearance with William and Kate on September 10 when the four walked out together to inspect floral tributes at Windsor Castle.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew home to their Californian mansion on Tuesday, 24 hours after the Queen had been laid to rest.
