This could have provided an opportunity for them to spend time together. However, Harry declined, opting to stay in a hotel to maintain privacy and due to security concerns, The report added.

Royal residences are heavily guarded with armed officers, but Harry was reportedly more concerned about his security outside these properties. He is said to be upset about losing his automatic police protection, which complicates any reconciliation with his father.
