Relations between Prince Harry and the rest of the royal family remain strained ahead of the King's coronation on 6 May.

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have confirmed their invitation to the historic event – but have not stated whether or not they will travel from LA to London to attend. You can see his response in the video below…

While the Prince's bond with his father and brother Prince William is fractured, royal fans did notice a sweet connection between Harry and Charles in a recent post from the Royal Family.

In honour of Mother's Day in the UK on Sunday, two photos were shared on Instagram: one showing Queen Consort Camilla with her late mother, Rosalind, and the other showing King Charles as a little boy with his mother, the Queen.

"Did anyone notice how much alike is the King in this picture is with Harry as a baby?" one remarked while a second admitted: "At first I thought it was Harry lol." "My thoughts exactly!" a third agreed.

A fourth suggested: "I thought Louis looks very similar too."
