didn’t have time to meet up with  when he was back in the UK this week – but he did have a catch up with

The King seemingly prioritised his work commitments over seeing his youngest son, who flew into London on Tuesday, ahead of his appearance at St Paul’s Cathedral the following day.

Harry’s spokesman said: “In response to the many inquiries and continued speculation on whether or not the duke will meet with his father while in the UK this week, it, unfortunately, will not be possible due to His Majesty’s full programme.

“The duke of course is understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon.”

While Harry was in the country, it’s been reported that Charles met up with Becks to discuss his charitable foundation.

The King had a private session with Goldenballs – with the pair bonding at the monarch’s Highgrove home.

No pictures were released of the meeting, but a source close to the King confirmed they did get together to The Sun.

Beckham has met Harry and Charles on multiple occassions in the past and was previosuly an Invictus Games ambassador.

Charles missed his chance to see the Duke of Sussex, who has now flown out to Nigeria to promote his games along with wife Meghan Markle.

Earlier this year, Harry settled questions over whether he would be meeting his father during the short visit.

He confirmed that they would not be meeting due to the King’s “full schedule”.

Speaking about whether Harry will meet his father soon, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told “I would have thought one is likely to be planned, given that King Charles has a serious illness, though he is displaying amazing energy in his engagements.”

He also said the King would likely base his visit on two conditions – that it is “private” and “planned beforehand”.

Despite a trip possibly in the works, Mr Fitzwilliams added: “However after this week, when according to Harry’s spokesperson, his commitments precluded a meeting, the King has sent a clear sign that any future visit is likely to be beneficial only if it’s private and planned beforehand without the accompanying media circus which we’ve just seen.”
