Prince Harry didn’t want to be ‘in the same room’ as Queen Camilla while visiting King Charles: report

Prince Harry is still harboring ill will for his stepmother Queen Camilla, according to her longtime friend.

The redheaded royal, who spent just 24 hours in London visiting his cancer-stricken father, King Charles III, last week, reportedly wanted to keep his distance from Camilla.

Harry “preferred not to be in the same room with his stepmother when he spoke to the King about his cancer diagnosis,” Camilla’s pal, Petronella Wyatt, wrote in a column for The Telegraph Monday.

The author also claimed it was a “massive opportunity missed” for Harry, 39, to extend an “olive branch” to his stepmother.

The Duke of Sussex’s feelings about Camilla, 76, were made clear in his explosive memoir, “Spare,” in which he labelled her “dangerous” and “the villain.”

“I have complex feelings about gaining a step-parent who I thought had recently sacrificed me on her personal P.R. altar,” he wrote in the 2023 book, claiming that she leaked stories about the family to boost her popularity.

Harry — who stepped back from his royal duties in 2020 and moved to the US with wife Meghan Markle — also referred to Camilla as the “other woman” in his book, almost two decades after she married Charles.

The “Suits” actress, with whom Harry shares Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2, did not join her husband on his recent trip across the pond.

Harry jetted into the English capital for a 45-minute meeting with his dad after Buckingham Palace revealed the 75-year-old monarch had been diagnosed with cancer.

“During the king’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer,” the palace said in a statement earlier this month.

“His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties,” the statement went on.

“Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.”

Photos obtained by Page Six show the Invictus Games founder making his way back to California just one day after he arrived.

He was later photographed departing a commercial Delta flight at Los Angeles International Airport.
