King Charles’ Health Scare Exposes Rift With Harry and Meghan

Please Share This Story

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, were reportedly informed of King Charles’s recent health issues via media coverage rather than directly from the Palace.

Due to the time difference between California, where the Sussexes reside, and the UK, Harry and Meghan may have learned of his father’s medical condition from news reports before receiving any private communication from Buckingham Palace. The public statement on King Charles’s enlarged prostate was made at 3:25 pm GMT in Britain, which corresponds to 7:25 am PST across the Atlantic as recently reported by Daily express.

Any direct bulletin from the Palace to the Duke and Duchess at their Montecito home may well have arrived after major networks covered the news of the monarch’s diagnosis. It highlights the challenges for a geographically distant Prince to receive prompt personal updates regarding sensitive family matters.

However, some royal observers note that Harry retains close channels to his father and brother William, which could facilitate rapid transmission of major health developments even ahead of public confirmation. The Palace declined to comment directly on exactly how or when the Sussexes were informed in this instance.

Nonetheless, parallels exist with prior incidents where Harry and Meghan appeared caught unawares by breaking news directly affecting the royal circle. Most notably, last September, leaked reports on Queen Elizabeth II’s deteriorating condition reached mainstream media for a full five minutes before the Duke overheard the official announcement mid-flight to Scotland.

In another coincidence, Wednesday’s dual revelations from Buckingham Palace covered not only King Charles’s prostate issue but also the Duchess of Cambridge’s recent abdominal surgery. Some royal watchers wondered if the pairing of the two health bulletins risked overshadowing either one.

However, Camilla, Queen Consort, has emphasized that Charles is recuperating well after his treatment for the enlarged prostate. Doctors caught the condition early, avoiding any dangerous complications through timely medical interventions.

Still, at age 75, the monarch faces increased vulnerability to various health ailments, even minor ones, which his subjects view more seriously due to his elevated role. Any news of treatments or hospital visits now garners higher public attention and scrutiny.

Harry may feel particularly helpless to assist his father or stepmother during any future medical scares, given the geographical detachment from his British roots. Yet some experts note he has built a new life firmly centered around Southern California now, making a permanent return to the UK unlikely regardless of Charles’s health.

Indeed, since relocating to Montecito after resigning from official royal duties, Harry and Meghan have developed an extensive network of celebrity friends, business partnerships, and media deals suiting their ambitions for autonomy. The Sussexes show little intention of giving up this hard-won independence even with Harry’s family facing increased health issues with age.

Yet the current diagnosis of an enlarged prostate for Charles serves as another reminder to Harry that his 72-year-old stepmother Camilla also faces higher medical risks. As a child, Harry formed a profoundly close bond with Camilla following the death of his mother Diana.

Some analysts suggest that the true test of Harry’s willingness to reconcile with his father and brother may come if Camilla falls seriously ill down the line, rather than due to any eventual decline in King Charles’s own physical state.

For now, both Princes William and Harry face the common challenge of confronting their parents’ mortality and increased frailty over time. Royal observers detect rising anxiety in William about the burden on his aging parents as the reality of his future monarchal responsibilities solidifies.

If Harry missed the initial private notification from Palace officials about King Charles’s recent prostate treatment, he has likely connected directly with his father already anyway. While geographical distance separates them, the two men retain a fundamental bond that transcends recent rifts or media miscommunications.

This latest minor health scare for Harry’s father again symbolizes the inexorable turning of the wheel. Over time, William and Harry will inevitably inherit the crown and with it, all the blessings and burdens that their destiny entails.
