Prince Harry made an unexpected appearance in London on Monday morning as he arrived at the High Court for a trial hearing.

The royal, who lives in Montecito with wife Meghan and their two children, is expected to remain in the UK for the next four days. See his arrival at court here...

But will he use the opportunity to reunite with his father King Charles ahead of the coronation in May?

Harry is unlikely to see his brother, Prince William, nor Princess Kate during his time back in Britain. HELLO! understands that the Prince and Princess of Wales are currently away for the Easter holidays with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

And a reconciliation with the King also seems to be off the cards.

Charles and Camilla should have been in Paris together this week on what would have been their first state visit there.

They were also scheduled to visit other regions in France between 26 and 29 March, including engagements in the capital and in Bordeaux. But their trip was cancelled at the last-minute due to the ongoing protests in Paris.

They are still heading to Germany on Wednesday, however.

And HELLO! understands that Harry was told that the King was busy between now and his departure to Germany.

It's thought that Charles and Camilla are currently either in Scotland or Highgrove in Tetbury, rather than being local to Harry in London.

Harry and Meghan have not confirmed their coronation attendance

Harry appears to have travelled to London on his own with no sign of Meghan nor their children.

He has previously claimed that it is too dangerous for him and his family to return to the UK. For that reason, it's still not yet known whether the Sussexes will attend the King's coronation on 6 May.

It's believed that the Prince will stay at Frogmore Cottage during his visit this week.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Harry and Meghan have been told to evict their UK base by King Charles since they are no longer working royals and now live permanently in the US.
