King Charles ‘told Harry it wasn’t appropriate for Meghan to see the Queen before she died’

King Charlesreportedly told his son Prince Harry not to bring his wife Meghan Markle to Balmoral to see his dying grandmother.

It is believed Harry, 37, who comforted an airport worker during his return to London, was at Frogmore when his father, the new monarch King Charles, 73, phoned his youngest son to tell him to come to Balmoral.

A source told The Sun: “Charles told Harry that it wasn’t right or appropriate for Meghan to be in Balmoral at such a deeply sad time.

“It was pointed out to him that Kate was not going and that the numbers really should be limited to the very closest family. Charles made it very, very clear Meghan would not be welcome.”

A representative for King Charles declined to comment.

OK! has contacted representatives for Harry and Meghan for comment.

Harry dashed up to Balmoral in a bid to say goodbye to his grandmother on Thursday and he was pictured looking distraught as he arrived back at Windsor yesterday following the Queen’s death.

He could be seen holding his hand to his mouth, looking visibly emotional as he processed the loss of his "Granny", with whom heshared an extremely close bond.

Harry was later joined in Windsor by his wifeMeghan Markle, 40, who did stay behind in London as Harry dashed to Scotland.

The King's son was amongst family members including brotherPrince Williamwho scrambled to the Queen's bedside in Balmoral yesterday after receiving a phone call that she had just "hours to live".

Harry arrived in Balmoral on Thursday evening at 7.52pm, having landed in Scotland at 7pm – hours after other members of the royal family touched down.

Flight data shows he was still in the air during the sombre announcement about his beloved grandmother.

He was the last of the royals to arrive to Balmoral, hours afterPrince William, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex all arrivedon the same plane.

Harry, who along with his wife Meghan, has had a strained relationship with his family in the last years, was also the first to leave Balmoral on Friday morning, barely 12 hours after arriving.

Harry was pictured being driven in a black Range Rover out of the Royal Family's Scottish home on 9 September.

He was seen sitting in the back of the car at 8.26am, making his way out after mourning the loss of his grandmother with his father Charles alongside other members of the Royal Family.

Harry was taken to Aberdeen Airport, where he boarded a plane to return back to London.
