Prince Charles extended an olive branch to Prince Harry and his family as he wants to spend some quality time with his grandchildren. Royal expert Christine Ross claimed that Prince Charles invited Prince Harry to stay in his private residences which are safer than a hotel or someone else’s home. The Duke of Cornwall “misses” his grandchildren especially Lilibet which made him take this “big step”, it has been claimed.

Christine Ross, a host of Us Weekly’s Royally Us, said: “It looks like Prince Charles invited Prince Harry to stay with him in their private residence because Prince Charles misses his grandchildren.

“He’s never met Lilibet as far as we know, and I think that was such a kind and really personal step for Prince Charles to take that was really him extending this olive branch really trying because I think we would all know that Prince Charles’ residence would be significantly safer especially in this circumstance than a hotel or someone else’s home.

“Clarence House where he lives would be significantly safer and would kind of address any security concerns that Harry might have so I think from Charles’ point of view this was a big step.”

The Duke of Sussex has applied for a judicial review after the UK Home office to not allow him to pay for the protection for himself and his family.

Prince Harry’s lawyers have written a ”pre-action protocol” to the Home Office.

It is known that it is the first time that a Royal member has issued legal action against the Queen’s government for protection.

The Duke’s legal representative said: “Prince Harry inherited a security risk at birth, for life. He remains sixth in line to the throne, served two tours of combat duty in Afghanistan, and in recent years his family has been subjected to well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats.

“While his role within the Institution has changed, his profile as a member of the Royal Family has not. Nor has the threat to him and his family.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex personally fund a private security team for their family, yet that security cannot replicate the necessary police protection needed whilst in the UK. In the absence of such protection, Prince Harry and his family are unable to return to his home.

“The Duke first offered to pay personally for UK police protection for himself and his family in January of 2020 at Sandringham. That offer was dismissed.

“He remains willing to cover the cost of security, as not to impose on the British taxpayer. As is widely known, others who have left public office and have an inherent threat risk receive police protection at no cost to them.

“The goal for Prince Harry has been simple – to ensure the safety of himself and his family while in the UK so his children can know his home country.

“During his last visit to the UK in July – to unveil a statue in honour of his late mother – his security was compromised due to the absence of police protection, whilst leaving a charity event.

“The UK will always be Prince Harry’s home and a country he wants his wife and children to be safe in With the lack of police protection, comes too great a personal risk.
