The Princess of Wales has ‘built up resentment’ against Meghan Markle because she was forced to stay away from Balmoral while other senior royals rushed to the Queen’s side for a final goodbye, a royal author has claimed.

Kate, 41, remained in Windsor to look after her children while the immediate family headed to Scotland to be at the late monarch’s bedside when she died in September 2022.

And now biographer Robert Jobson says in his latest book, Our King, the decision was taken to ensure Prince Harry didn’t have an excuse to bring his wife, because he might have insisted if the Princess of Wales was there.

‘The King said it was only for the children and grandchildren to be with the Queen,’ he wrote, adding that Charles wanted to stress that it was ‘not appropriate for wives to attend’, even though Sophie Wessex travelled to Balmoral.  

‘Privately, he wanted to say Meghan was not welcome,’ he continued.

‘But he couldn’t say that to Harry so he personally intervened and asked Kate to stay back so that it was fairer on Meghan.’

He said that the Princess of Wales – who had stayed back at Adelaide Cottage and was spotted leaving Windsor Castle to collect the children from school on the day – had ‘wanted to be there with the Queen’, but wasn’t able to.

Meanwhile, William joined his father and other members of the immediate family to be with her, as doctors revealed they were ‘concerned’ for her health. 

Prince Harry scrambled to Scotland to see the Queen but failed to reach the estate before she passed away aged 96. 

In his explosive memoir Spare, the Duke of Sussex revealed the heartfelt final words he told his grandmother just hours after she passed away.

The father-of-two described how he whispered that he ‘hoped she was happy’ and would be reunited with Prince Philip, who died a year earlier. He also told her that he admired her for having carried out her duties until the end.

It comes as reports claim that Prince William has no plans to reunite with his younger brother when the Duke of Sussex visits the UK for the King’s Coronation.

Royal analysts revealed that Harry, 38, had a heartfelt talk with his father on Saturday in an attempt to ease tensions, but has not addressed the ongoing dispute with William.

It is also understood that there will be no time for the pair to meet during Harry’s trip for the May 6 event, The Sun reported.

Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine, told the newspaper that the royals all have ‘really tight schedules’ and she thinks Harry addressing his relationship with William is ‘for another time’.

The royal analyst noted it would be ‘nice’ for Harry to ‘stick around and be friendly’. However, it is understood that the Duke’s solo trip across the pond will be short.

‘Out of politeness you’d think Harry would want to mingle with his family no matter how difficult that might be for him,’ she said.

Ms Seward added that she is ‘glad’ Harry has spoken with Charles because it has ‘eased the path to rapprochement’.

She said: ‘Charles will welcome his son. I think his relationship with William is for another time.’ 

William, 40, and Harry will see each other during the Coronation at Westminster Abbey on May 6.

This is understood to be the first time the pair will face each other since Harry released his memoir, Spare, in January – which saw him brand his brother as his ‘arch-nemesis’.

Harry has also publicly called on his family to apologise to himself and Meghan for what they see as slights. 

Charles is said to be very pleased his youngest son is coming and his mood is described as ‘generally quite forgiving’, however, the Prince of Wales is understood to still feel betrayed and angry, particularly by the revelations in the memoirs. 

Sources have recently alleged the ‘gulf’ between the brothers, who were once as close as siblings could be, is now so large they cannot see how their relationship can ever be repaired. 

It is also reportedly unlikely that the pair will have a sit down – which insiders have previously claimed that Harry demanded.

William had no contact with his brother when he came over with Meghan and the children for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations last year.

And the brothers barely spoke at her funeral later in the year, meeting briefly when William invited him and Meghan to join him and Kate to meet the public and view the flowers outside Windsor Castle.
