Sources close to the Royal Family have said Harry cannot expected to be greeted with open arms whenever he returns to the UK.

A meeting with William would only happen if Harry shows any sign of being sorry for making a series of revelations about his brother and the Royal Family.

In his bombshell autobiography, Spare, Harry detailed a physical altercation with William and labelled his man an "old man".

Harry, who labelled William his "arch-nemesis" in Spare, has reportedly deeply hurt his brother with his remarks, The Sun reports.

He will reportedly take on more public duties in the wake of numerous family illnesses, which started yesterday with an investiture at Buckingham Palace and ended with a gala in central London.

There was no time, however, for his brother, Harry, who had flown back to the UK following Charles' cancer diagnosis.
