The Duke of Sussex is not expected to meet with the King or William during his brief stay in the UK, despite Friday's poignant anniversary.

A new detailed schedule has instead appeared online, with a presenter called Hadnet Tesfai down as the duchess' replacement for the closing ceremony.

The original passage on the media schedule, which has since been deleted, said that Meghan would "take to the stage to host the intimate and moving glimpse into the extraordinary journeys of the Invictus Games competitors".

But it now seems this passage was uploaded in error, sources told the Daily Mail.
