Prince Harry and King Charles reunite for the first time after cancer diagnosis

The King has been seen for the first time since the announcement of his cancer diagnosis.

Prince Harry landed in London less than 24 hours after Buckingham Palace confirmed King Charles has been diagnosed with cancer. The Duke of Sussex made a mad dash to see his father despite the Palace's attempt to downplay the severity of His Majesty's condition.

The King also made his first public appearance following the announcement, after having seen Harry just a few hours before.

Harry arrived in the UK solo, with his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Archie, four, and Lilibet, two, remaining at home in the US.


The Duke of Sussex was seen arriving at Clarence House to see his father for the first time since his coronation back in May last year.

Charles, along with Queen Camilla, was seen leaving Clarence House and driving back to Buckingham Palace after the reunion. Not long after that, the King's helicopter was seen leaving Buckingham Palace for Sandringham Estate.
