Prince Harry rejected King Charles's 75th birthday invite according to a royal insider, however, the Sussexes have disputed this.

The Sunday Times reported that the Duke of Sussex was invited to attend the monarch's party next week at Clarence House.

The 39-year-old prince does not plan on attending, amid his ongoing feud with the Royal Family.

Relations between Harry, his father, and Prince William have been tense for the past couple of years.

A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told GB News regarding The Sunday Times's claim: "In response to UK media headlines, there has been no contact regarding an invitation to His Majesty’s upcoming birthday. It is disappointing the Sunday Times has misreported this story."

Meghan Markle and Harry have launched multiple public attacks on the Royal Family, through the duke's memoir, Spare, and the couple's Netflix documentary.

King Charles will celebrate his 75th birthday on November 14 and is said to be having a small party, with close family attending.

Earlier this year, it was reported that the duke rejected an offer to visit Balmoral for the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's death.

Prince Harry did attend the King's Coronation, however, he flew back to the United States as soon as the ceremony was over.

The monarch's reported invitation to his son was intended to be an olive branch, The Sunday Times claimed.

The publication's source said: “When he gets to the end of another successful work day and thinks of his family, there will always be a twinge in his heart about a problem he hasn’t been able to solve yet.

“But he will be taking the long-term view. The current act is a challenging one.

“There are issues that aren’t resolved and there won’t be a rapprochement any time soon.

“There is the sense of a cooling-off period from the family that is underway after the aftershocks of the book and interviews.

“But that doesn’t change the King’s love for his son. He’ll never not invite his son to a family gathering, because that’s not who he is.”

Both Harry and Meghan were out on the weekend, having attended Katy Perry's Las Vegas concert on Saturday.
