Prince Harry will arrive in London today after he raced to LAX airport following King Charles’ cancer diagnosis.
Harry was pictured arriving at the airport’s exclusive private suites on Monday evening after Charles reportedly told his son he had a type of cancer.
From pictures circulating on social media, it appears that Harry has travelled without his wife, Meghan Markle, and their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
He is expected to touch down in London early Tuesday morning before racing to see his father.
News of Charles’s cancer diagnosis emerged on Monday evening via a statement from Buckingham Palace. It read: “His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties. Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.
“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure. He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.
“His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”
Buckingham Palace have not confirmed the type but have said that it is not prostate cancer.
In a briefing, the Palace said: “His Majesty has been treated for benign prostate enlargement. It was during this intervention that a separate issue of concern was noted and subsequently diagnosed as a form of cancer. This second condition will now receive appropriate treatment.
“No further details are being shared at this stage, but His Majesty is receiving expert care and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.”
The briefing note added: “His Majesty is grateful to his medical team for their expert care and swift intervention, is wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.”
