PRINCE HARRY failed to meet privately with Prince William, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and their children George, Charlotte or Louis, insiders have said - with the Duke also accused of snubbing the Queen by flying home to the US early.Other than attending the funeral, Harry barely left Frogmore Cottage, where he isolated on his return to the UK, according to reports.
Charles, who was joined by actor and BAT ambassador Sanjeev Bhaskar, admitted having a quick practice a week ago but said he had not cycled 'for years', and was a little wobbly as he started.
Their path was lined by Indian Dhol drummers and the prince quickly warmed up and sped off down the lane leading to his home.
Earlier, he had jokingly told the riders after seeing them in tight fitting riding gear that they were 'a very good demonstration of why I don't wear Lycra!'
'It's a nightmare getting into it,' he added.
And he got a fit of the giggles when he was handed a tiny Lycra top by Rohit Chadda, one of organisers of the charity ride.

'I mean, I have heard about Lycra,' he said, stretching the top comically, 'but really!'

Asked why he was not tempted to go for a sportier model, he joked: 'I don't think my back could take it!'
The British Asian Trust was founded in 2001 by Charles with a group of prominent Asian business leaders, and works to reduce poverty and disadvantage for communities in South East Asia.
Human Remains Found 'Yards Away' From Harry And Meghan's California Home .
The 'very old' bones were unearthed by landscaping construction work.When Harry and Meghan, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, moved into their mansion in beautiful Montecito, they may have hoped for a drama-free neighbourhood. They may now consider Ellen DeGeneres and Katy Perry as neighbours, but overall they may have looked forward to solitude 90 miles from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood. This has now been disturbed, somewhat, by the discovery of ancient human remains that are thought to be more than 10,000 years old.
