The royal insider's revelation followed the veteran's recent trip to the U.K. for the WellChild Awards. Although the Duke of Sussex traveled to England, on Thursday, September 9, it was reported that he didn't spend time with Charles or his brother, Prince William. However, those closest to the crown believe that the trip isn't an indicator of Harry's relationship with the king.
"The King loves his son very much but he has been mortally wounded by what he has done," the source shared with a publication. "He will always be there for him but draws the line at public slanging matches."
"If the talks take place, the King will make it very clear that there will be absolutely no private family business discussed in public moving forward. Staff are trying to fine-tune the details," the insider added.
"I’m sure [the King] misses him. Harry is entertaining, warm and very loving as well. And they had a great relationship," the source told an outlet.
"[The Queen] managed to navigate these choppy waters, and that’s why she was always admired and loved — because she got the family through," says the source close to the royal household. "[Charles] will have to show that he can do that."

"While some may suggest it would be good order for the family to settle their differences, perhaps even in the late Queen's memory, things are a long way off," the source shared.
The friend later added that Harry had "no intention" of seeing his immediate family while traveling through Europe.
