A royal expert has claimed that despite tensions with a few members of the Royal Family, Harry will find seeing Prince William in particular “very difficult”. Prince Harry has experienced a strained relationship with the Firm for some time – particularly his elder brother, who he was previously very close to. The Coronation will mark the first time that Harry has been reunited with his family since last September – and relations have worsened considerably owing to the Duke’s spate of public claims against the royals.

Since stepping down as a senior royal in 2020, Harry has directed various potshots toward the family, which has not gone down well in royal circles.
The most recent fire aimed at them was through various claims in his tell-all memoir, Spare.
Harry used his book to document his life as a senior royal, noting how troublesome the years were for him and his wife Meghan.
Among the host of claims, Harry accused his brother of physically attacking him in 2019.

The incident reportedly happened after a disagreement between the brothers over Meghan Markle.
Details of their relationship breakdown were also centre stage, with Harry detailing a 72-hour row the pair had over text in October 2019.
In the book, Harry also referred to his stepmother as “dangerous” and accused her of leaking stories about the Royal Family to the media in a drive to transform her image.
Harry will be travelling to the UK alone this week, with Meghan set to remain in the US with their two children.
The Palace confirmed Harry’s attendance last month, as well as noting Meghan’s no-show.
Insiders believe the couple are unlikely to return for any future royal events such as anniversaries, Trooping the Colour and to celebrate key holidays such as Christmas and Easter.
