The pre-awards bash at the plush Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills attracted megastars including Cate Blanchett and Kate Hudson.

And excited US PR advisers had been keen to capitalise on publicity surrounding Harry and Meghan’s Netflix series.

But a Bafta insider claims executives in ­London rejected the idea of inviting the Sussexes.

The source, a Bafta consultant, said: “Bafta decided it was a terrible idea, they thought it would be a PR disaster.

“Prince Harry, in his book and docu-series, has roundly attacked the Royal Family.

“The US team was reminded that Harry’s arch-nemesis, his brother Prince William, is president of Bafta.

“So 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.

Any interviews he or Meghan gave would go viral.

“Anything negative on William would be devastating.”

The rumblings at Bafta have been kept secret and Prince William’s PR team had no knowledge or involvement in any of the decision-making.

A spokesman for William did not want to comment.

A Bafta spokeswoman denied a Harry and Meghan invite had been discussed.

The source added: 'Any interviews he or Meghan gave would go viral. Anything negative on William would be devastating'
