King Charles will likely be too busy to personally meet with Prince Harry before his May coronation, a move that a royal expert has claimed is a “brutal burn” to Harry.
Sources close to King Charles say he “simply won’t have the time” to meet with Prince Harry before his coronation in May.
“Charles adores Harry and wants him to be there. But he has a coronation to organise. He simply won’t have the time to organise a special meeting with Harry”, an unnamed royal source told The Daily Beast.

Royal expert Daniela Elser said that King Charles has “refused to blink in the trans-Atlantic showdown” he is in with Harry.
She thinks his stance amounts to a "brutal burn".
She said that Charles’ “take-it-or-leave-it” approach may end up backfiring on him, as people across the world will notice if Harry and Meghan’s seats at Westminster Abbey are empty during the coronation.
Elser added: "So too must he also know that photos of a Sussex-less royal family at the coronation would only serve as a painful reminder of just how badly fractured the royal family is, a situation that is looking more and more like a permanent, corrosive state of affairs.
"The simple reason (Charles won't meet with Harry privately)? Charles is too busy.
"Ooh, burn indeed."
Prince Harry previously said that while he wants to sit down with the rest of the royal family and clear the air, they need to be the ones to reach out: “the ball is in their court. There’s a lot to be discussed and I really hope … they are willing to sit down and talk about it”.
He said that the two things he wants from his family are “some accountability, and an apology to my wife”.

Relations between the Sussexes and the rest of the firm have become so frosty since the publication of Harry’s memoir Spare, that the Archbishop of Canterbury was reportedly drafted to broker some peace.
Harry made several damning allegations about the royal family in his book, as well as the couple's Netflix documentary released last year.
Even the book’s title is a reference to a cruel joke Charles made after learning of Harry’s birth, allegedly telling Princess Diana shortly after she gave birth: “Wonderful! Now you’ve given me an heir and a spare. My work is done”.
