Prince Harry has spoken out following King Charles III's cancer diagnosis, stating that he was "grateful" for being able to visit his father.

As previously reported, Buckingham Palace stated that King Charles, 75, had been diagnosed with cancer during a recent health evaluation, separate from the surgery he underwent for an enlarged prostate.

While medical experts clarified that the cancer isn't prostate-related, the King has initiated a treatment regimen, prompting him to postpone public engagements indefinitely.

Upon learning of his father's diagnosis, Prince Harry wasted no time and boarded a flight from Los Angeles to London. The Duke of Sussex arrived at Heathrow Airport after a ten-and-a-half-hour journey.

Initially scheduled to depart for Sandringham via helicopter, King Charles delayed his departure to ensure he could meet with Harry. Sources close to the King noted his positive demeanor, describing him as "doing very well" and appearing "entirely his normal self."

Their reunion at Clarence House, lasting around 30 minutes, was full of smiles and a sense of optimism despite the gravity of the situation.

Prince Harry has now opened up about his father's diagnosis in an exclusive interview with Good Morning America.

"I love my family," the 39-year-old father of two told host Will Reeve. "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 shared that he immediately flew to see his father as soon as he could after learning of his condition. "I went to go and see him as soon as I could," he said.

Regarding the potential impact of his father's illness on their family dynamics, Harry expressed optimism, saying: "Absolutely. Yeah, I’m sure... I think any illness, any sickness brings families together."

However, Harry remained discreet when questioned about his father's health outlook, stating that such information "stays between me and him."

In addition to discussing his family, Harry talked about life in California and the possibility of becoming a U.S. citizen. He described his children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, as "doing great" and expressed gratitude for fatherhood.

"It’s amazing," he said of life in California. "I love every single day. The kids are growing up like all kids do, incredibly fast. They’ve got an incredible sense of humor and make us laugh and keep us grounded every single day, like most kids do."

When asked about becoming a citizen, he admitted considering it but clarified it's not a high priority at the moment.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently in Canada for the Invictus Games 2025’s Winter Training Camp, where they spent Valentine’s Day together and were seen engaging in various winter sports activities.
