Harry's parents have criticised Mrs Sacoolas for leaving the country and today told Sky News they do not "necessarily" want her to be punished.
Mrs Charles said: "Come home, come back to the UK. We're not a horrible family, we're a usual UK family that just need to put a face to what we have now is a name.

Man (20s) dies after road crash in Kilkenny
A man in his 20s is dead after the car he was driving appeared to hit a wall in Kilkenny in the early hours of this morning. The accident occurred at around 1am at Knockwilliam, Ballyhale.
"Without knowing who this person is properly we can't begin to try and start our grieving process.
"We just don't understand from one human to another, one mum to another, how you could just get on a plane and leave behind the devastation she has without even speaking to us, without an apology of any kind?"
She appealed for Boris Johnson to use the UK's "special relationship" with the US to "its full potential" to get Mrs Sacoolas to return to the UK.
The parents said their MP, Andrea Leadsom, has told them she will fight for them to get justice, while Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has also been helpful.
"If it comes to it we will go to Washington," she said.
"But we don't want it to come to that. We don't see why it should come to that.
"We're not out to keep fighting, we just want to sit and talk with her."
Britons Demand Return of American Woman Who Fled After Fatal Crash
LONDON — The mother of a British teenager who was killed in a crash in August has appealed to President Trump for help after the main suspect in the investigation, an American citizen, left Britain despite telling the police that she had no plans to do so..LONDON — The mother of a British teenager who was killed in a crash in August has appealed to President Trump for help after the main suspect in the investigation, an American citizen, left Britain despite telling the police that she had no plans to do so.
Mr Dunn said they were struggling to understand how Mrs Sacoolas was given diplomatic immunity and how she could leave the country.
He said: "She was compliant with the police, she admitted at the time she was in the wrong.
"We know from the police she was going to stay in the country, she was permitted to stay here for three years.
"And then we didn't think this would be what is happening, so to hear the news a few weeks after the funeral was devastating."
Mrs Charles said the family are "not coping" and just trying to get through each hour of every day after the death of the son they said kept the family together after she and Mr Dunn split up when Harry was young.
She said: "Harry always fought for what he thought was right. We're honouring him by doing this. We just have to keep going to try to get some closure.
"All we need to do is to meet her, all we need to do is ask her to come back. It's not much to ask. She's left a family in complete ruin. We're broken.
"Many of us, not just direct parents, siblings, grandparents, aunties, uncles, nieces - it's everything.
'I heard an explosion in the sky... the plane was coming down nose first and breaking up in the air'
'I heard an explosion in the sky the plane was coming down nose first and breaking up in the air'Peter Tawse (61), from Old Ross, Co Wexford, and John Finnan (52), from Athy, Co Kildare, died when the light aircraft they were in crashed at Gibletstown near Duncormick in Co Wexford at 5.40pm.
"We're all broken and we're just utterly shocked and appalled that somebody is allowed to get on a plane and go home and avoid our justice system."
Mr Dunn added that their understanding of diplomatic immunity is to keep diplomats safe if they are under threat "not for something like this where they've hurt somebody".
Sky News has tried to contact Mrs Sacoolas for comment but was unable to do so as she has not returned to her original address in the US.
