Prince Harry now has to give notice if he wants to visit the king and stay at the royal estate – and earlier this month he was refused a room at Windsor Castle.
The Duke of Sussex, 39, was offered the chance to stay with his father Charles at Balmoral on the anniversary of the Queen’s death on September 7, but said his busy travel schedule made this impossible.
Harry had requested security and royal accommodation for the night as he was attending a WellChild charity party in Chelsea, west London.
But he was told that none of the royal properties in Windsor or the capital were available to him because it had been announced too late.
Instead, he stayed south in a mysterious location and celebrated the occasion alone.

He was pictured holding a short vigil at the Queen’s resting place, located in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Royal sources said accommodation for the duke will be available where possible, but the palace must be given advance notice of his visit Telegraph reported.
He is expected to return to Britain in January for his High Court claim against News Group Newspapers for allegedly unlawfully collecting information.
His visit this month was the first since he and Meghan were evicted from Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were all smiles as they made a surprise appearance on Kevin Costner’s ‘One805 Live!’ charity event for first responders on Friday, held at his $26 million polo field in Santa Barbara.
The couple was joined by their close friends Oprah and Ellen DeGeneres as they took another step into Hollywood royalty.
The fundraising event — where “last chance” tables cost $12,000 — was hosted at Kevin Costner’s oceanfront estate in Summerland and featured notable guests, including Katy Perry’s parents.
Harry wore black, while Meghan opted for a sophisticated, chic look, in a monochrome jacket with her hair pulled back clean-girl style.
Upon their arrival, the Duke and Duchess – who have just returned from a PDA-packed performance at the Invictus Games in Germany – were spotted backstage chatting with Costner, his VIP guests and senior police and fire officials.

Charles and Queen Camilla are believed to be currently in Balmoral after returning from France yesterday.
The king waved to the crowds as they boarded the royal plane at Bordeaux-Merignac airport to depart for Britain.
Their Majesties ended their three-day French state visit in southwestern France, where September showers failed to dampen their spirits.
The king enjoyed a few boosts as he toured a chaotic festival after taking a ride on an electric tram. He was persuaded to take a sip of whisky, made from his own barley, as he walked past the stalls in Bordeaux’s main square.
Moments later he entered another tent where he was persuaded to try some organically made red wine. He also selected a piece of cheese that was wrapped for him and said he couldn’t leave without eating some local cheese.
He and the Queen also arrived at Place de la Bourse by electric tram after leaving a reception aboard the frigate Iron Duke.

Meanwhile, Prince Andrew appeared in good spirits as he enjoyed a peaceful horse ride around the grounds of Windsor Castle today.
The Duke of York, 63, was accompanied only by a groom on his typical Saturday morning outing, which sometimes includes his brother Prince Edward.
Andrew and his riding companion chatted animatedly during the ride, with the father-of-two seen smiling broadly in a purple crew-neck jumper and riding breeches.
