PRINCE Harry and King Charles may meet again soon after he made a transatlantic dash to see his cancer-stricken father, royal experts have claimed.
The meeting between the pair has raised hopes they will be reconciled despite their troubled relationship.
Yet BBC royal correspondent Daniela Relph said it “mattered” that Charles wanted to see his son.
She told Radio 4: “This is a father and son who have seen very little of each other over the past four years.
A son is coming back to see his Dad who has just received awful news.
“The relationship has been incredibly strained and complicated.
“It mattered that Harry was here, it mattered that the King wanted to see him.”
The Telegraph reported that another visit to his father has not been ruled out.
Meanwhile royal historian Kelly Swaby said such a health scare is a “chance for a truce”.
“The reaction the Royal Family are showing at the minute I think would be the same in every family across the country,” she said.
“A health scare – a major health news is always a chance for a truce or a revaluation of a situation in someone’s personal life, so I think we should take Prince Harry coming back to the UK as a sign that maybe there is going to be a truce for a while.
“A son is coming back to see his Dad who has just received awful news.”
Suggestions the duke could also heal his long-running rift with his brother, the Prince of Wales, look unlikely.
It is understood that he has no plans to meet with Harry.
He began his working day by hosting an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle, awarding honours like CBEs, OBEs and MBEs to recipients.
For some time William, as heir to the throne, will be the leading member of the royal family at official events across the country as his father receives treatment.
How Charles bravely revealed diagnosis to help others
KING Charles has bravely broken with royal protocol by sharing his cancer diagnosis.
Senior royals have in past been tight-lipped about their health battles.
The last top royal diagnosed with cancer was Charles’s grandfather George VI.
Heavy smoker George had his left lung removed for “structural abnormalities” in September 1951, months before he died.
The “abnormalities” were actually a life-threatening carcinoma, but the public never learned about George’s cancer ordeal.
Buckingham Palace said Charles wanted to share his cancer diagnosis to boost “public understanding” for cancer patients worldwide.
