Neither the King nor the Prince of Wales will meet the Duke of Sussex when he visits Britain this week, The Mail on Sunday has learned.

Prince Harry will travel to the UK to attend the annual WellChild Awards, a charity of which he has been patron for 15 years.

But a palace insider said the King had ‘no time in the diary’ to see his son, while his brother Prince William is not thought to have been in touch with Harry for months.

It is understood that an invitation to the Royal Family‘s annual summer get-together at Balmoral was not extended to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex this year.

Harry has handed back the keys to his grace-and-favour home of Frogmore Cottage in Windsor and last night it was unclear whether the Royal Family would offer him any other accommodation during his stay.

Last week the duke appeared to again criticise his family last week in a multi-million-pound television series about the Invictus Games, the international sporting tournament he founded for wounded veterans.

In an interview for the TV streaming giant Netflix, Prince Harry launched a fresh attack, saying that he had ‘no support structure’ to help him cope with the sudden death of his mother at the age of 12.

He said: ‘The biggest struggle for me was no one around me really could help. I didn’t have that support structure, that network, or that expert advice to identify what was actually going on with me.’

Harry will be in Dusseldorf for the biennial games later this month but is visiting the UK first to attend the WellChild awards in London. It is thought that his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, will not join him for the UK leg of the trip.

Last year Harry had been due to give a speech at the WellChild ceremony but rushed to Scotland to be with his family when his grandmother the Queen was gravely ill.

This year he will return to the event on Thursday – it will be a year since his grandmother passed on Friday – where he will spend time with the charity’s winners and their families.

But it seems there is no plan for a reunion with his own family.

It is thought that Prince William has not had any contact with his younger brother since Harry released his autobiography, Spare, in January, in which he accused his older brother of pushing him to the ground, causing Harry to fall on a dog bowl.
