King Charles pretends to forget who Prince Harry is by replying ‘who?’ when asked to ‘bring him back’ – but then chuckles and says it ‘would be nice’ once he realises the well-wisher was asking about the Duke

  • During a walkabout King Charles appeared to forget who Prince Harry was
  • An onlooker asked the King to ‘bring Harry back’
  • King Charles responded in turn: ‘Who?’ – before realising his mistake  

King Charles has been filmed appearing to forget who Prince Harry is during a walkabout at the University of London today. 

In the short clip, the King, 74, can be seen greeting onlookers who have gathered to watch his royal visit. 

As he mingles with the public, a voice asks the King to ‘bring back Harry please, can you please bring him back please?’

Without hesitating, the monarch replies: ‘Who?’ – before quickly realising and laughing at his own mistake, saying: ‘It would be nice.’

The King then moves off in the opposite direction and the video cuts out. 

The question is doubtless in reference to the continued speculation over whether Harry and wife Meghan will attend the King’s coronation this year – with no official announcement yet made.  

There is a ‘working assumption’ that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with receive an invitation to attend the state ceremony to crown King Charles as sovereign, palace insiders told The Sun.

There had been fears that Harry and Meghan’s attendance would upstage and diminish the sincerity of the high-profile ceremony – especially after revelations from their Netflix series and Harry’s controversial memoir Spare.

But coronation organisers are continuing to plan under the assumption that both Harry and Meghan will fly to the UK for the ceremony.

The Mail on Sunday revealed last month that the King asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to broker a deal to ensure that the Sussexes attended his coronation.

King Charles’s slip-up comes after details of the three-day festivities for the coronation were released, including a concert to be held at Windsor Castle. 

It will take place on May 6 at Westminster Abbey where His Majesty will shun royal garb in favour of military clothing, in a bid to update the ceremony.

A procession will then lead the newly crowned King past thousands of people who will line the streets to Buckingham Palace, where he will join members of his family on the balcony to wave at the masses.

This will be followed by a Bank Holiday on Monday, with millions of people set to get a day off work.
