King Charles gave a heartbreaking reply when he was asked to ‘bring Harry back’ during a royal visit on Thursday.
The 74 year old monarch was visiting the University of East London's Stratford campus in east London for its 125th anniversary, unveiling a plaque and opening its new hospital and primary care training hub.
As the King shook hands with students and well-wishers who had gathered to see him, one man shouted out: "Bring back Harry please, can you please bring him back please, Sir?"
The monarch appeared not to hear what was said at first and asked the man: "Who?"
The well-wisher responded: “Harry, your son.”
In a video published byMailOnline, the King initially laughs before saying: "It would be nice."
Prince Harry’s relationship with the King and the rest of the Royal Family has been strained of late following the release of the Duke of Sussex’s tell-all memoirSpare.
The book brought anew round of attacks on the Royal Family – with criticism directed towards the King, as well asPrince William,Queen Consort Camilla andKate Middleton.
This led to speculation over whether Harry, 38, and wife Meghan Markle, 41, would be invited to King Charles’ Coronation in May.
But royal insiders have reportedly confirmed the "working assumption" that the Sussexes will be at the historic ceremony.
Invitations for the 90-minute service at Westminster Abbey are to be sent out this month – with royals, dignitaries and world leaders expected to be in attendance.
However, it's been suggested work will need to be done to avoid any awkward encounters.
It was previously been reported that the King stillhopes for reconciliation with Harry and Meghan before his Coronation in May.
This week, it emerged that Harry and Meghan – who stepped back from senior royal duties in 2020 – can 'expect to be treated like the Duke’s cousinsPrincess Beatrice andPrincess Eugenie' if they attend the event.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl, writing inVanity Fair, explained: “Now that they are no longer working royals, the Sussexes can expect to be treated the same way as Harry’s cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who attend important family occasions but are not in the spotlight and do not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony.”
Katie added that Harry and Meghan would likely take on less visible roles, as they did during the lateQueen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations last June.
The official crowning of King Charles will take place on 6 May, with government ministers promising the event will"showcase the very best of the United Kingdom".
Meanwhile the King, 74, is said to be working hard to make sure his coronation ismore “inclusive, relevant and less archaic”.
