Prince Harry turned down an invitation from his father, King Charles III, to stay at the royal residence during a visit to London earlier this month due to security concerns, "Telegraph" learns.

He reportedly rejected the king's offer because it did not include the full protection that other senior members of the royal family have and which he also had until he stepped back from royal duties with wife Meghan Markle in March 2020.

It is also stated that he should have stayed in a prominent place, with public entrance and exit and without police protection. Instead, he decided to stay in a hotel, because that way he felt he could come and go without being noticed.

"The Telegraph" also states that Prince Harry is disappointed by the British government's decision to withdraw his police protection while he was in Britain, which he appealed to the High Court in London, but lost the case. He is now required to notify police there 28 days before his arrival in the UK if he wishes to apply for insurance, which must be approved by the committee responsible for protecting members of the royal family and public figures.

Prince Harry was last in London to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Invictus Games, after which it was written that his father did not have time to meet him because he was too busy.

Harry is known to have last seen his father in February this year after the king announced he had been diagnosed with cancer.
