William and Kate have ‘no plans’ to reconcile with Harry after cancer diagnosis

The Prince and Princess of Wales reportedly have no plans to reconcile with Prince Harry during his planned visit in May.

The row between the brothers has been rumbling for years, but Prince William has reportedly put the ‘Harry problem’ to the back burner as he and his family face Kate’s cancer diagnosis.

It comes just days after both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reached out to Kate and William after her shock revelation video.

The California-based couple reportedly only found out about their sister-in-law’s cancer when the clip was released to the public on Friday.

The communication between the princes was disclosed by ITV royal editor Chris Ship, who said on X the Sussexes ‘have both been in touch’ with the Waleses ‘but did so privately’.

Harry once described Kate as ‘the big sister I never had’, and the two enjoyed a close bond after she married Prince William.

But that relationship fell apart after he introduced his wife Meghan to the couple and they eventually broke away from the royal family.

A royal expert also told the Sun that Kate chose not to tell Harry and Meghan about her diagnosis for fear they ‘can’t be trusted’.

With both Kate and King Charles now facing battles with cancer, the row between William and Harry is not the focus, according to the Telegraph.

Harry is planning to visit the UK in May, and will likely attend a service at St Paul’s Cathedral to mark the tenth anniversary of the Invictus Games.

The Duke of Sussex formerly said he wants his brother and father back as a ‘family, not an institution’.

But it seems making amends may be put on the back burner as both Charles and William deal with private family health matters.

Last month, Harry returned to the UK after making an emergency dash from the US to see his father King Charles following his cancer diagnosis.

The duke cleared his diary and made the journey alone, with Meghan and their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet remaining at home in California.

But there was no reconciliation between Harry and his brother the Prince of Wales during the visit, after the duke spent around 45 minutes at Clarence House seeing Charles.

He last appeared alongside the Windsors and the Waleses at the King’s coronation, but hurried home immediately afterwards to mark his son’s fourth birthday.

Since stepping down as working royals in 2020 and moving to California with their family, the Sussexes have aired allegations and grievances against the monarchy and members of Harry’s family.

The duke’s allegations against his family appeared unrelenting in the aftermath of Megxit with his Oprah interview, and, in the months following the Queen’s death, his Netflix documentary and memoir Spare.
