King Charles cancer – latest: William returns to royal duties after Harry spends night at London hotel

Prince William has returned to royal duties as King Charles rests at Sandringham following his first cancer treatment

By Aabusad PathanPublished 4 months ago 3 min read

Prince William has returned to royal duties for the first time since his father was diagnosed with cancer and his wife underwent abdominal surgery.

The Prince of Wales carried out an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle this morning and is expected to later attend a gala fundraising dinner for London’s Air Ambulance Charity in the evening.

The father-of-three had taken a break from official engagements to care for the Princess of Wales and their children after she spent 13 days recovering in hospital from her procedure.

But as King Charles is forced to postpone public engagements as he undergoes cancer treatment, other members of the royal family, including William, have stepped up.

His busy day comes as his brother Prince Harry reportedly stayed in a London hotel on Tuesday night following his brief reunion with their father.

The Duke cleared his schedule to fly from California to see the King for a meeting that lasted roughly 30 minutes.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex vacated Frogmore Cottage in Windsor last year leaving them without a base in the UK and now need a “formal invitation” to be able to stay with the royals on “protected property”.

Inside Prince Harry’s flying visit to see Charles that lasted less than an hour

Prince Harry rushed from his home in California to the UK on Tuesday after his father revealed his cancer diagnosis to his youngest son over the phone.

The long journey took the Duke of Sussex more than 11 hours but his meeting with the King at Clarence House in London reportedly lasted less than an hour.

Differing newspaper reports say the get-together was either just 30 or 45 minutes long.

There were hopes that the 39-year-old prince’s visit would help repair damaged relationships between himself, his father, and his brother the Prince of Wales. But it appears unlikely Harry will be seeing Prince William before he soon returns to LA.

Harry plans to spend more time in England to be near father - report

Prince Harry plans to spend more time in England in a bid to repair rifts with his family, it has been reported.

“Harry is making plans to spend more time in England so he can be there physically for his father,” an insider told the Daily Mirror.

“Meghan has given him her blessing to do this as she knows family is paramount.”

It comes after the Duke cleared his schedule to board an 11-hour flight to see the King less than a day after the diagnosis went public.

The meeting was brief - lasting less than an hour - and Harry reportedly stayed in a London hotel on Tuesday night rather than one of the many royal residences.

Where is the King?

Following his diagnosis of an undisclosed cancer, King Charles has retreated to Sandringham to rest.

Sandringham House is a 20,000-acre country estate in the parish of Sandringham, Norfolk and has a rich history within the royal family.

The King had briefly stayed in London to begin his cancer treatment and was also visited by his rarely-seen youngest son, Prince Harry.

The Duke of Sussex cleared his schedule to fly 5,000 miles from California to London to see his father at Clarence House on Tuesday afternoon.

The meeting was less than an hour, with the King and Queen Camilla being spotted being driven out of the house to Buckingham Palace. They then travelled to Sandringham by helicopter that took off from the palace roof shortly after their arrival.
