Royal enthusiasts have been left disappointed as it has emerged that Prince Harry and Prince William are not expected to reconcile during Harry's upcoming visit to London for the Invictus Games' 10th-anniversary event at St Paul's Cathedral.

While a reunion with King Charles is on the cards, there will be no such moment with his brother.

The Duke of Sussex, who founded the Invictus Games for wounded service personnel, will be travelling from the US to attend the ceremony on Wednesday May 8.

A source revealed: "Harry has kept in regular contact with his father on several occasions and made no secret of his desire to see him when he can. He has been especially concerned about him and hopes the King will be well and able to see him as planned."

Despite a packed schedule, King Charles is reportedly keen to meet with his son during his stay, the Mirror reports.

However, an insider commented on the lack of a meeting with Prince William: "Their relationship remains extremely fractured. Harry has privately expressed a wish to sit down with his brother but now is not the time."

The 39 year old prince is set to land in London on Tuesday for a three-day visit, marking his second trip to the UK this year after visiting his father following the announcement of the King's cancer diagnosis in February.

Harry managed to spend a brief 30 minutes with his ailing father at Clarence House, marking a significant step towards mending their relationship that was strained after Harry and Meghan's departure from Royal duties in 2020 and subsequent move to the US. Charles, who resumed public duties this week, is expected to be in London on Tuesday for cancer treatment.

The Duke has been sending messages of support throughout his father's battle with cancer. In a recent interview on US television, Harry expressed his hope that the King's diagnosis could serve as a catalyst for family reconciliation.

The Prince is set to reunite with Meghan on Thursday in Nigeria, where they have been invited to participate in cultural activities. They are anticipated to meet with military personnel during the trip, which is associated with the Invictus Games.

This marks their first visit to the African nation, a place of special significance for Meghan who disclosed last year that she is "43% Nigerian".

The couple will subsequently return to the US, without a stop in Britain. Following a review of over 1,000 Royal patronages in the wake of the Queen's death, the King is set to become the patron of the Royal British Legion.
