It is unlikely that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will stay with Prince Charles after he offered them his home, the Queen’s cinema has said.
The Prince of Wales, 73, offered to have his family stay with him in the UK in hopes of meeting Lilibet for the first time, a source claimed this week.
The offer, which would be the first time the family has come together completely since Harry and Meghan moved to the United States, was given just before Christmas, according to the Mirror.
However, the royal cinema Angela Levin has claimed that the couple will not stay with Charles as it would be “too awkward”.

She told The Sun: ‘Of course, when you get married, your partner influences it all and I do not believe Meghan ever wants to come back here.
‘She would find it very difficult to stay with Prince Charles and the Duchess [of Cornwall] because I think she would be pretty awkward with it all. ‘
She added: “I think Charles is very brave, very honorable and it really should be Harry who apologizes to him and tries to get back in his good books, but I think it looks like it’s the other way around . ”
It comes as Harry’s refusal to return without a significant level of security from the Met Police is said to have put reunification in doubt.

What it really costs to guard Sussexes
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s security team in Canada consisted of at least six £ 60,000-a-year Scotland Yard protection officers.
But experts say the true cost to each officer would have been closer to £ 100,000 a year, taking into account overtime, round-trip flights to the UK, pension contributions and the cost of living.
The couple spent more than three months in Canada before moving to California in March 2020, when they are reported to have hired the best security firm Gavin de Becker and Associates (GDBA) used by A-lists including Jeff Bezos, Tom Hanks and Madonna .
The GDBA team – described as a ‘secret service to famous people’ – is rumored to cost around £ 7,000 a day, or £ 2.5 million a year.
Harry and Meghan have probably been provided with a team of six bodyguards, which could include former FBI and CIA intelligence officers working in rotation, with four on duty during the day and two at night.
The couple’s US security would have no jurisdiction in the UK or access to intelligence.
Prince Harry faced outrage over his threat of legal action against Her Majesty’s government.
He is seeking a judicial review of the decision to deprive him of his British police protection team, arguing that it is too dangerous to visit without Scotland Yard bodyguards.
A former head of royal protection warned the royal ‘can not pick and choose’ when he wants to visit Britain and receive protection.
Dai Davis pointed out Princess Anne was almost kidnapped and her protection officer was shot – but she does not get full-time protection.
His comments came when sources suggested the Queen would not help her grandson in his demands for security staff when he comes to the UK.
Insiders claimed the monarch has no intentions of ‘falling into his demands’ for protection from the Met and Home Office.
Meghan and Charles were previously close and are said to have shared a bond of love for culture, art and history.
Charles is also said to be ‘desperate to see his grandchildren’.
A source told the Mirror last week: ‘The Prince of Wales has been upset that he has not had the opportunity to spend time with his grandchildren, which he really misses.
‘He’s an amazing grandfather and loves to play the role incredibly much, and it’s certainly fair to say that he feels something is missing in his life without the ability to get to know Harry’s children.
‘This is something he hopes to remedy, and so he gestured to Harry, Meghan and the children to stay with him if they wanted to when they had to come home for a period of time.
