Sometimes it takes some unfortunate news to bring a family together. A day after it was announced King Charles III was diagnosed with cancer, his estranged son Prince Harry is in London to see him — marking a rare return trip years after his dramatic exit from royal duties.
Buckingham Palace announced yesterday that Charles, 75, had been diagnosed with cancer, after the monarch visited the hospital for an enlarged prostate treatment. The palace did not specify what kind of cancer he has nor what stage it was found in, but ruled out prostate cancer.
The news that Charles, who acceded to the throne in September 2022 after the death of Queen Elizabeth II and was coronated in May, has cancer shocked people across Britain and the world, prompting both sympathy and speculation about what it could mean for the future of the royal family.
