Prince Harry is expected to "make a longer visit in due course to allow the King to meet his grandchildren face to face".

Prince Harry set for UK return with Archie and Lilibet so the King can meet his grandchildren

A royal expert has predicted that Prince Harry will make a longer trip back to the UK, where King Charles will have a face-to-face meeting with his grandchildren.

Harry rushed for the UK as soon as the King revealed he had cancer. But Charles left for Sandringham after the Duke of Sussex had only been with his father for forty-five minutes.

The duration of Harry’s visit was expected, according to Pauline Maclaran, Professor of Marketing and Consumer Research at Royal Holloway University’s School of Business and Management Marketing.

She stated, “I’m not surprised that Harry has only made a flying visit,” in an interview with Daily Express US. I believe he would have preferred to speak with his father directly to offer his support, but he also wouldn’t have wanted to prolong the King’s illness by remaining in the area.

“He is also likely to want to get back to his family in the US.”

Even though the visit was brief, Ms. Maclaran asserted that it was probably a positive development for royal relations.

“It appears to be a very positive step toward developing better relations with his father,” she continued.

“I imagine he may make a longer visit in due course to allow the King to meet his grandchildren face to face.”

Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, the King’s grandchildren, have not been seen by him much since Meghan Markle and Harry moved to Montecito, California, in the US in 2020 and resigned from their senior royal duties.

King Charles’s cancer diagnosis—which Buckingham Palace confirmed on Monday—was not prostate cancer, as it was found while the monarch was receiving hospital treatment for an enlarged prostate.

The King has been advised to defer his public engagements, but he will still receive a regular treatment schedule. The type of cancer was not confirmed by the palace.
