Overseas, the King has reunited with his estranged son, Prince Harry, a day after Buckingham Palace announced he had begun treatment for an undisclosed type of cancer.
The 75-year-old’s shock diagnosis, announced in a statement on yessterday evening (UK time), triggered a flood of well-wishes from world leaders, including Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Commonwealth world leaders, US President Joe Biden and former US president Donald Trump.
Charles III was later pictured for the first time leaving Clarence House for Sandringham, wearing a purple tie and dark suit. He smiled and waved from his car to people gathered near Buckingham Palace with Queen Camilla seated beside him.
The Duke of Sussex, who has barely spoken with his father and brother, Prince William, since he and his family left Britain for the United States three years ago, flew from Los Angeles to London’s Heathrow overnight, landing at about 12.30pm (London time).
