The Sussexes made the offer after they had to turn down the Mayor of London's invitation to be the star guests at a glitzy party he hosted in Los Angeles during last week's five-day jaunt, which is said to have cost taxpayers tens of thousands of pounds.
However, Mr Khan turned the offer down due to 'logistical difficulties'. These apparently included a busy schedule and the 90-minute drive from his party in West Hollywood to their nine-bedroom, 16-bathroom home in upscale Montecito, Santa Barbara - reportedly the site of a new Netflix Kardashians-style documentary series.
A spokesman for the Archewell Foundation did not deny the story when contacted by The Standard.
Mr Khan, 51, is a friend of Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, and it is likely he would want to avoid being drawn into the 'civil war' between the Sussexes and the rest of the Royal Family. The Mayor met William before the FA Cup final last weekend, and also appeared alongside the Queen during the opening of Crossrail on Tuesday.
(If the Mayor is a 'friend' of William, and doesn't want to be drawn into the 'civil war', why would he invite Harry and wife to be guests of honor at his party?)
Meghan and Harry sent three members of staff to Mr Khan's party, held on Tuesday last week, including James Holt, Nick Clegg's former communications chief who is now executive director of the Archewell Foundation.
The bash was held at Holloway House, part of the Soho House empire, with a raft of celebrities in attendance, including James Corden and Richard Curtis.
