It was hoped the disturbing news of the King’s illness could bring Harry closer to his father and brother, the Prince of Wales, after launching years of fierce attacks on the monarchy.

The author of ‘Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the Windsor War’ gave his opinion in this week’s episode: ‘I think the monarchy, in fact, depends on erasing the Sussexes from our state of life because their continuation It’s bad for us. .
Prince Harry arrives at the Windsor Suite at Heathrow Airport today after his brief visit to see his father, King Charles, following his cancer diagnosis.
Royal biographer Tom Bower launched a blistering attack on the Duke of Sussex calling him a “traitor” when discussing his meeting with Charles on this week’s The Reaction, the Mail’s new YouTube talk show.
“I’m really furious that they allowed him to land in London and then gave him a special escort to Clarence House.
“I think it’s interesting that, given the number of rooms they have at Buckingham Palace and all the other palaces in London, I had to spend the night in a hotel.”
Harry was pictured at Heathrow Airport this afternoon (Wednesday) preparing to leave the UK after just 24 hours.
Bower’s strong comments come after Harry, 39, spent a brief time with his 75-year-old father, despite not seeing him for 17 months, after the King informed him of his cancer over the phone.
They met at Clarence House before the King headed to Buckingham Palace to board a helicopter that would take him to Sandringham, in Norfolk, with his wife, Queen Camilla.
Buckingham Palace confirmed on Monday that the King has begun immediate treatment for an unspecified form of cancer after “a worrying issue” was discovered during recent treatment for a benign enlargement of the prostate.
Due to his condition, the King has decided to postpone his public engagements during his treatment, but will continue to work hard behind the scenes.
The hosts also debated whether there is any hope for forgiveness and healing between the Royal Family and the Sussexes.
Sources told the Mail yesterday that while William, 41, respects his father’s decision to “keep the door ajar” for Harry, reconciliation “is not an option for him personally at this time” while he remains at home. of his wife, the Princess of Wales. at her bedside after her abdominal surgery.

Mr Bower argued: “You cannot reconcile with a man who has made his living for the last three years by being a traitor, causing them so much unhappiness.” I mean he’s really done it quite voluntarily. I mean he is not a child, he is almost 40 years old.
Vine and Pierce praised the King for telling the public about his condition, but debate whether he should have said what type of cancer he has after it was confirmed it was not prostate cancer.
Mr Pierce said: “The King was transparent to a point, but then he became more opaque about the cancer, saying ‘he is being treated for cancer’.” The speculation is lurid, Sarah. Might as well go all the way.
But Ms Vine argued: “I really don’t agree with you.” I think sometimes people have to keep a part of themselves private, especially if you’re like him: lying on a stretcher for everyone to see.
