Harry, who now lives in California with his actress wife Meghan and their children, has been at war with his family since quitting royal life and launching a barrage of score-settling criticism in his best-selling autobiography “Spare”.
The Telegraph and The Sun newspapers reported that Harry arrived at Heathrow airport following an overnight flight from Los Angeles.
His car was reportedly seen being driven from the airport accompanied by two police cars, less than 24 hours since Buckingham Palace made King Charles’s cancer diagnosis public.
Royal watchers say that while King Charles’s ill health may be a catalyst for a rapprochement between father and son, healing the rift with his brother Prince William, heir to the throne, would be more difficult.
Buckingham Palace, in a statement on Monday, disclosed that King Charles had been diagnosed with a form of cancer.
The palace, however, did not give any details about the type of cancer but it specified it was not prostate cancer or what stage it was in.
Earlier, the UK Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak said King Charles III’s cancer was discovered early.
King Charles was diagnosed with cancer barely a year after his coronation in May 2023, succeeding his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away in September 2022 at age 96.
