PRINCE William has “always made clear that Kate is his priority” following the King’s cancer diagnosis and Harry’s UK visit.
The Prince of Wales, 41, paused his royal duties to care for Kate and their children following her abdominal surgery last month.
He will return to public engagements when he hosts an investiture at Windsor Castle on Wednesday.
William will also attend the London Air Ambulance fundraising gala in London’s Raffles Hotel the same evening.
But he is understood to not be returning to full-time duties yet and instead “remains focused” on looking after wife Kate and their three children.
The heir also has “no plans” to see Harry during his flying visit to the UK, insiders have said.
Both William and Camilla are expected to take on the brunt of King Charles’ royal duties following advice from doctors to postpone public-facing engagements.
But William has no further duties scheduled beyond Wednesday and is expected to be with Kate and their three children for their half-term holiday next week.
A source told the Daily Mail: “The Prince has always made clear that his priority is to support his wife and family for the time being – and he did not put a timescale on that.
“He will make a return to duties on Wednesday but you should not expect to see him again for a bit after that.”
It comes as:
It comes as Harry arrived back in the UK today, having been notified of the King’s cancer diagnosis by phone shortly before the Buckingham Palace announcement on Monday.
The Duke of Sussex landed at Heathrow at lunchtime following a ten-and-a-half hour overnight flight.
He was then taken to London while Charles delayed a helicopter flight to Sandringham so they could hold their first meeting in 16 months.
Their meeting is thought to have lasted little more than half an hour, with Harry leaving Clarence House around 45 minutes after arriving.
William, though, did not join his dad and warring brother.
An insider told The Sun: “There are no plans for Harry’s visit to act as some kind of vehicle for reconciliation.”
His priority is to support his wife and family
William is currently with his family at Adelaide Cottage, Windsor.
Sources close to Harry, though, say he would meet William “if the opportunity were to arise”.
Meanwhile, all other working members of the Royal Family are understood to be continuing with public engagements in the King’s absence.
The Sun also understands Charles and William have become incredibly close in recent months.
The King has been regularly staying at Windsor Castle on Sunday nights to spend time with his eldest son.
It comes as Charles was seen for the first time since his the announcement of his cancer diagnosis on Tuesday.
The King was seen arriving at Sandringham after taking a helicopter flight with Queen Camilla from Buckingham Palace.
Earlier in the afternoon he was also seen smiling as they were driven from their London home Clarence House to the palace.
A palace source told the Telegraph: “Charles is on his usual good form in every way.
“He’s just a little frustrated that his condition has affected not just his own plans but impacted on others.”
The Palace said the King had been diagnosed with “a form of cancer” during the his prostate operation.
The statement said His Majesty has begun a schedule of regular treatments and “remains wholly positive”.
Despite the diagnosis, Charles will continue with his red boxes, weekly audiences with the Prime Minister, and monthly Privy Council meetings.
