TALK OF THE TOWN: Prince Charles 'planned one-on-one dinner with Harry'

Prince Harry was happy to reconnect with his old pals during a 'lads' lunch' earlier this year – but mystery surrounds a secret summit he was due to have with his father to rebuild their strained relationship.

A source close to the Prince of Wales says Charles had planned a one-on-one dinner with Harry during his son's trip back to Britain earlier this month, when Harry unveiled a statue of his late mother, Diana.

I'm told Charles – who was reportedly in Scotland while the ceremony took place at Kensington Palace – intended to travel back to London to thrash things out with Harry, following the fallout from the explosive interview the Duke and wife Meghan gave to Oprah Winfrey

A nervous Charles was said to be 'dreading' the dinner – presumably in case he made some faux pas which could be misconstrued and repeated to the Duchess of Sussex back home in California.

But it remains unclear whether the dinner actually went ahead as planned, and an aide for Charles would not be drawn on the matter last night.

However, the suggestion that the pair were willing to forge a plan to meet suggests at least a little thawing in relations between Harry and the rest of the Royal Family.
