Prince Harry has made a poignant visit to his father, King Charles, following the distressing news of the monarch's cancer diagnosis but reports suggested that there are no arrangements for Harry to meet with Prince William.
The Duke of Sussex was observed arriving at Clarence House around 2:42 pm on Tuesday, shortly after Buckingham Palace disclosed that King Charles III was dealing with a "form of cancer."
Allegedly, the Duke and the monarch conversed for approximately 45 minutes, following which King Charles and Queen Camilla departed.
This marked their initial formal in-person encounter since Queen Elizabeth's funeral in September 2022.
While Harry and his spouse Meghan Markle attended King Charles' coronation last May, they did not engage with the monarch or his wife.
Despite this reunion, sources indicate that there are no plans for a meeting between Harry and his brother William, who reportedly have had a strained relationship for years.
According to sources, it has been reported that “nothing in the diary” for the brothers.
A contact familiar with William's affairs informed The Times that there were currently no arrangements for the future king to have a meeting with Harry.
The duration of Harry's stay in the UK remains uncertain, as he has not returned since last September, when he participated in a charitable event.
An insider hinted to The Mirror that Harry is contemplating extending his stay in England to offer direct support to his father, noting that he had received approval from his spouse for this decision.
Prince William, whose wife the Princess of Wales is in recovery from abdominal surgery, is scheduled to resume his royal duties on Wednesday.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams observed that there were no indications of improvement in the relationship between the brothers.
The depth of the rift between the siblings became public knowledge last January when Prince Harry made allegations against Prince William in his memoir, Spare, leveling a series of accusations.
Fitzwilliams remarked that this latter incident had exacerbated the situation, “relations to the deep freeze”.
Nonetheless, Fitzwilliams, along with other observers of the royal family, voiced optimism that the family would unite during this challenging period. “In a crisis, families should be in it together,” he said.
