Prince Harry will not have received a "warm reception" from the Royal Family after returning to the UK for a High Court battle, one royal author has said. The Duke of Sussex, who has not confirmed if he will be attending King Charles's Coronation in May, is facing mounting criticism after his attacks on family members. Royal author Christopher Andersen claimed Charles is "still furious" with his son for the bombshell accusations made in his memoir, Spare.
He told Fox News: "Even if Harry did wish to reconcile ahead of the coronation, it's highly doubtful he'd get a warm reception.
"William appears to have thrown up his hands in disgust. Charles III is still furious over Harry’s devastating portrayal of his wife, Camilla, as a villainous schemer in his bombshell memoir."
Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams added: "Harry isn’t expected to see any of his family.

The Prince and Princess of Wales and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are not currently in Windsor because of the youngsters' school Easter holidays.

The duke is also taking legal action against the Home Office over security arrangements when he is in the UK, raising questions about his own security provisions during this visit.
