Prince Harry Speaks Up about Father’s Cancer Diagnosis

Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, has broken his silence on his father’s cancer diagnosis. In an interview with Good Morning America, he opened up about how he learned the news and gave some insight into King Charles’ current condition.

According to People magazine, King Charles personally informed his family about his cancer diagnosis before announcing it to the public on February 5th. As soon as Harry spoke with his father, he wasted no time and immediately flew to the United Kingdom to be by his side.

“Look, I love my family. The fact that I was able to get on a plane and go and see him and spend any time with him, I’m grateful for that,” Harry explained to Good Morning America’s Will Reeve.

Although the details about the type of cancer King Charles is battling have not been disclosed, it has been confirmed by the palace that it is not prostate cancer. Harry declined to provide any further updates on his father’s health, stating that it’s a personal matter between them.

During his recent visit, Harry spent around an hour with his father, but he expressed his desire to make more trips to see him in the near future. “I’ve got other trips planned that will take me through the U.K., or back to the U.K., and so I’ll stop in and see my family as much as I can,” he shared.

In a heartfelt statement, Harry expressed hope that his father’s diagnosis could bring the family closer together. He revealed that he hadn’t seen his father since his coronation in May and acknowledged that it shouldn’t take such a serious illness to reunite a family. “It’s such a terrible thing that it takes something as serious as a cancer diagnosis to reunite a family, but we do hope everyone is able to make amends before it’s too late.”
