Prince Harry is heading to the UK after his father King Charles was diagnosed with cancer, but Lady Colin Campbell believes there is no possibility of ‘a genuine rapprochement’
Prince Harry might have rushed to be by King Charles’ side following his cancer diagnosis, but one royal expert believes it won’t be possible for the pair to have “a genuine rapprochement”.
The Duke of Sussex was seen arriving at a private terminal at LAX ahead of his flight to the UK. He’s now landed in London before heading to be with his dad, who is currently at Clarence House.
However, Lady Colin Campbell believes Harry’s relationship with his dad can’t fully be repaired while he remains married to Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex decided not to join her husband as he raced back to the UK.

Instead, Meghan will remain at their home in California with their two young children – Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. Lady C admitted she’s “delighted” Meghan has decided not to join Harry and suggested this would have “added a whole different, awkward dimension” to the royal reunion.
Speaking to GB News, she said: “I think it is a good opportunity for improved relations.” However, she warned: “The mistake people make in this situation is to think that a leopard changes it spots. A leopard does not change its spots. As long as Harry and Meghan are together, there is no possibility of a genuine rapprochement between families.”
The outspoken socialite believes the King will be “delighted” to see his son despite their frosty relationship. Harry is currently estranged from his father and hasn’t seen the monarch since his Coronation back in May.
Buckingham Palace announced the King’s cancer diagnosis last night and said he will undergo immediate treatment. The monarch was last month diagnosed with an enlarged prostate and spent three days in hospital after undergoing a medical procedure for the benign condition.
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 from a specialist team”.
