Prince Harry might face a less than warm reception upon his return to the UK. The warning has come from Paul Burrell who expects the UK public to boo the Duke of Sussex.

Mr Burrell, who was Princess Diana's butler, believes many Britons are "unhappy with how things have turned out" after Harry's move to the US with Meghan Markle. It is set to come to a head next week as Harry returns to the UK, reports the Mirror.

The Duke of Sussex is travelling to London for the first time since he visited King Charles in February - and while he is expected to meet his father again, a meeting with his older brother Prince William appears unlikely. Harry is travelling to London to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games, attending a ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral.

The last time Harry was at St Paul's Cathedral with Meghan was in 2022 when the Sussexes attended a service for the late Queen's Platinum Jubilee. The couple were largely cheered but there were also some lone boos when they arrived for the service.

As he returns to the same location, Harry could be "booed again", claimed Paul Burrell, who worked for Princess Diana for over 10 years. Mr Burrell told the New York Post: "He is returning to St Paul's Cathedral, where he was last booed. The public is still in the same frame of mind he may well get booed again.

"They don't have a place or a purpose here, after all, Harry is now a resident of the US, so he is almost American." The former butler said the British public is "unhappy with how things have turned out", adding: "I'm sure the king and queen aren't either.

"William has drawn a line in the sand, there is no chance of Harry reconciling with his brother. There is a chance and the door is still open with his father and I'm sure there will be a meeting, but Camilla won't be there because I don't think there is any love lost between Camilla and Harry."

According to insiders, King Charles III has a busy schedule while Harry is in the UK but intends to clear his diary to see his youngest son. In February, Harry managed to see his ailing father for just 30 minutes at Clarence House.

It marked a healing step in their relationship that was dented after Harry and Meghan quit royal life in 2020 and moved to the US. Charles, who returned to public duties this week, is expected to be in London on Tuesday for cancer treatment.

Aides said his movements are dependent on how he is feeling on any day. Harry's contact with his dad has "remained positive", a source revealed. The Duke has sent messages of support during his cancer battle. In a recent US TV interview, Harry said he hoped the King's ­diagnosis can have a "reunifying effect" on the family.
