Furious Prince Harry ignored dinner with King Charles III and William at Balmoral after the new monarch banned Meghan from joining them on the day the Queen died, it is reported.

It is alleged that the Duke of Sussex wanted his wife to join the royal family when they met at the Scottish estate following Her Majesty’s death on September 8.

However, it is alleged that Charles called his youngest son to say it was “inappropriate” for her to be there.

Reportedly, in the ensuing feud with his family, in which he fought to get them to let the Duchess go with him, he missed his flight to Scotland.

In his absence, his brother and uncles, Andrew and Edward, all boarded an RAF plane for Scotland. They would arrive in Balmoral about half an hour after the Queen’s death.

Harry had to make his own way there and landed in Aberdeen at 6:35 pm, five minutes after Her Majesty’s death was announced to the public.

The Sun reports that the prince was so upset about the delay and his wife not being allowed to come that he refused to dine at Birkhall with his father, brother and Queen Consort Camilla.

Instead, he had dinner with Andrew, Edward and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, at Balmoral Castle before leaving early the next morning.

Prince Harry had insisted that his wife Meghan be with him on the day the Queen died, but King Charles III would deny her entry. Pictured: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stand behind King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on September 19

It is alleged that in the ensuing altercation, Prince Harry missed his flight to Aberdeen, meaning he took a later flight that landed only after Her Majesty's death was announced to the world.

The Sun quotes a source as saying: “Harry was so busy getting Meghan to Balmoral and rowing with his family that he missed the flight.

“Charles has an open invitation for Harry to dine with him when he’s in the country.

“But Harry was so furious that he refused to eat with his father and brother.

“It was a huge turn-off. And he left Balmoral at the earliest opportunity to catch the first commercial flight back to London.’

The next morning, he was the first member of the Royal Family to depart, aboard an early British Airways flight from Aberdeen, where he was pictured comforting an airport employee after she conveyed her condolences on the death of his grandmother.

Harry returned to Meghan at 8:28 am, where he was alone in the back of a Range Rover when he was driven from the Scottish home of the Royal Family, where he had arrived at 7:52 pm the night before.

He was taken to Aberdeen airport at 9:20 am, led by five police officers, and boarded a flight to London departing at 10 am.

Harry was wearing a black suit and carrying a shoulder bag as he walked to the steps of the plane. An airport employee offered her condolences as the prince was about to climb the steps of a British Airways plane.

The woman, who was dressed in a highly visible yellow jacket, turned to Prince Harry. The royal family smiled and patted her gently on the shoulder before boarding the plane to London Heathrow Airport.

Less than 12 hours earlier, sadness had been written on the duke’s face after he landed in Scotland following the announcement of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

He had his head bowed and partially covered his face as he left Aberdeen airport and arrived in Balmoral after dark.
