That sounds familiar to us! Prince Harry is expected in court in London next week, but King Charles already has other plans.
London – Is King Charles III (74) avoiding Prince Harry (38)? According to British media reports, Harry is expected in London next week to testify before the High Court against the publisher Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), publisher of the Daily Mail and the Mail On Sunday, among others. The proceedings concern the allegation of unlawful information gathering using illegal wiretapping methods.
As soon as Prince Harry gets on the plane to London, King Charles leaves the country
According to The Mirror, Prince Harry will be in London for several days at the beginning of June, unlike his 28-hour lightning visit to the coronation of King Charles III. Princess Lilibet's 4nd birthday is scheduled for June 2, which Harry is expected to celebrate together with wife Meghan Markle (41) and son Archie (4) in Montecito, California, after which Prince Harry can board the plane to Great Britain. However, who Harry can't meet with in his old homeland is Papa Charles.
King Charles III already has other plans. According to The Telegraph, the British monarch is leaving for a multi-day hiking holiday in Romania at the beginning of June. Charles has a house in the small village of Viscri German in the Transylvania region, and he also owns other properties in Romania. For about 25 years, King Charles, who is supposed to be a successor to "Dracula", likes to spend a few days in the Carpathians in early summer to hike, paint and read in peace. King Charles apparently does not want to postpone this holiday in favor of a meeting with his youngest son Prince Harry.
High Court of Justice
The High Court is housed in London's Royal Courts of Justice and deals with important cases in the first instance. The Supreme Court is divided into three divisions, the Chamber of Economic Matters, the Chamber of Family Law and the Chamber of Civil Affairs. However, the High Court of Justice is not the highest instance in the United Kingdom, the highest court is the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, which is also located in London.
The mountain is calling: King Charles prefers to go hiking instead of meeting with Prince Harry
Already at the end of March, when Prince Harry appeared for a court hearing in London, there had been no meeting between him and his father. At that time, the state visit of King Charles III and Camilla (75) to Germany got in the way. The fact that Charles is also out of the country during his son's renewed stay in London almost no longer looks like an unfortunate coincidence. Does King Harry resent the fact that he could only spare 28 hours for the coronation, but devotes several days to the trial?

At least on the eve of the coronation, Prince Harry and King Charles are said to have taken time for a short chat at Buckingham Palace, according to Us Weekly. There will be no further rapprochement on Harry's next visit. It is also not to be assumed that Harry will meet with his brother Prince William (40) and his wife Kate Middleton (41), the fronts are too hardened after Harry's revelations in his biography "Spare". Stepmother Camilla is not travelling to Romania with Charles, but will instead spend a few days at her country house in Wiltshire. And the Duke of Sussex is unlikely to get much company during his stay, because Prince Harry is said to have only six friends left in the UK. Sources used:mirror.co.uk, usmagazine.com, telegraph.co.uk
