If King Charles would invite Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Sandringham for annual Christmas celebration, then Prince William and Princess Kate would likely opt for a no-show at the gathering, a royal insider has claimed.

According to Express.UK, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are prone to receive an olive branch from King Charles in the face of an invitation to spend Christmas with the Royal family.

However, it is understood that if the Sussexes were to accept the invitation, it will certainly not go well with the senior working royals including Prince William and Princess Kate.

The Prince and Princess of Wales have had a rocky relationship with Harry and Meghan since their tumultous royal exit in 2020.

Harry’s memoir Spare acted as a catalyst to further deteriorate the couple’s relationship with the Royal Family.

Nevertheless, it seems that the Montacito based couple have got several opportunities to step on the Royal soil.

Another source dropped hints that his Majesty would more likely invite the younger son to Britain over the New Years, when William and Kate will be busy in Norfolk.

They said: "It would certainly have the advantage of killing two birds with one stone” explaining it as, “extending an olive branch to one son without causing difficulty to the other."

The insider added that even if they accept a Christmas invitation, it's "unlikely they would be welcomed with open arms"

On Monday, November 20, Sara Hewson, the royal editor of Talk TV shed some light on William and Kate’s thoughts saying they, "aren't ready to play happy families.”

Meanwhile it seems the the father is emending his relationship; last week, Harry called his father on his birthday, November 14, after months of “no contact” with the monarch.

At first, the Buckingham Palace declined to comment but later stated that in fact a call took place and another phone call is scheduled for this week.
