Prince Harry is said to be heading to London soon following King Charles III’s personal revelation about his cancer. The Duke of Sussex will be leaving California, but it remains uncertain whether Meghan Markle and their children, Archie and Lilibet, will accompany him.
The King contacted both the Duke of Sussex and the Prince of Wales personally to tell them of his cancer diagnosis before it was announced by Buckingham Palace.
A source close to Harry said that he had immediately decided to come to the UK as soon as possible to be by his father’s side. Experts have claimed that Harry’s dash to Britain ‘indicates the seriousness’ of the King’s condition.
Announcing that Prince Harry will come and see his father, a source close to the Duke said: ‘The duke did speak with his father about his diagnosis. He will be traveling to UK to see His Majesty in the coming days.’
Former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond said she hoped that King Charles III’s cancer diagnosis ‘will bring a reconciliation’ with Prince Harry.
Harry’s estranged brother, William is also in close contact with his father.
He may also undertake some duties on behalf of his father, in addition to his own diary of engagements, while the King undergoes treatment.
