This morning, Page Six reported Prince Harry and Markle were left off of the guest list of the British Academy Film Awards tea party on Saturday. According to the outlet, event organizers had anticipated a firestorm if they had invited them.

"BAFTA decided it was a terrible idea [to invite them]," an unknown source told The Sun yesterday. "They thought it would be a PR disaster." Page Six also notes Prince William is the President of BAFTA, and the source had also mentioned this to The Sun.

The source continued, "For them to roll out the red carpet to Harry and his wife would be like setting off a nuclear bomb. It's a no-go."

The aftershocks of this hypothetical nuclear bomb would continue to be felt if Prince Harry mentioned his brother at all during the event. "Any interview would go viral. Anything on William would be devastating."

Those closely affiliated with Prince William are keeping quiet on the matter. The outlet revealed his spokesperson had "declined to comment" to The Sun, "while a BAFTA representative tells Page Six that Prince Harry and Markle's attendance was "not discussed whatsoever."

Prince Harry has been adamant in discussing his desire for a reconciliation between himself and the two important men in his life- his father and brother. He recently revealed both Prince William and King Charles have "shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile. I would like to get my father back. I would like to have my brother back," he said in an interview with ITV 1, according to The Blast, per Page Six. He also revealed his belief that the royal family allegedly prefer to keep the couple at an arm's length.

"They feel as though, it's better to keep us, somehow, as the villains," he added.
