Prince Harry has spoken openly about how much he loves being a father to his two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, who turns two on June 4. In 2022, he sat down with NBC's Hoda Kotb for an interview that aired on the Today show. “What do I love about fatherhood?” All of it,” he said. Prince Harry then went on to say that “When you are not a parent you can get sucked into all sorts of different stuff and you can maybe sometimes forget who you are.”

Prince Harry is due to celebrate his daughter, Princess Lilibet’s 2nd birthday on June 4 with his wife, Meghan Markle and Prince Archie before jetting back to the UK where he is expected to give evidence in his court case against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN). However, it looks like he will miss seeing his father King Charles as he is due to be away on his break in Transylvania. 

Although Prince Harry was of course present at the momentous occasion of his father King Charles’s coronation, he did not join the rest of the royal family on the balcony and hurried back to Montecito in order to make it back for Prince Archie’s birthday. It therefore brings the question to the fore of when will Prince Harry next see his father if is away in Transylvania when he returns to the UK in June. 

The King’s Birthday Parade (Trooping the Colour) will take place on 17 June 2023, but as yet, there is no indication that Prince Harry, Meghan and their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet will join the rest of the royal family for this occasion. 

According to reports, King Charles was said to have been disappointed that Prince Harry did not decide to join the rest of the royal family for a lunch on the day of the coronation and even raised a glass during the meal to toast the fourth birthday of Prince Archie that his youngest son wasn’t able to witness. 

If King Charles is in Transylvania when Prince Harry returns to London in June, does this mean that Prince Harry will take the opportunity to meet up with his brother Prince Wlliam? Although it looked like relations between the brothers were decidedly ‘frosty’ at the coronation.

The Mirror revealed this month that in a video the Prince and Princess of Wales shared of the coronation on their social channels that “royal fans believe they have spotted a thawing of relations between the brothers and are  hopeful of a reconciliation.”The article goes on to say that “a series of photos are visible when Charlotte walks into the living room-and one of them features William, Harry and the royal siblings mother, Princess Diana.”

The fact that the Prince and Princess of Wales have a photograph in their living room featuring Prince Harry seems to be wishful thinking on the part of royal fans thinking this might mean there is a thawing of relations between the two brothers. However, we shall have to wait and see if there is any secret meeting between the pair when Prince Harry returns to the UK In June.
