Prince Harry has returned to the airport to fly back to Los Angeles after a brief visit with his father, Prince Charles.
The Duke of Sussex, 39, reportedly stayed at a hotel instead of a royal palace for the night following the short reunion with his father.
Jetting back to LA
Harry was spotted in his vehicle at 2:40 pm, accompanied by security, as he made his way to the airport to return to California.
First public appearance since cancer diagnosis
Prince Charles, 75, was seen in public for the first time since his cancer diagnosis on Tuesday as he left Clarence House, a day after starting his treatment.
A quick trip from California
Harry arrived in London from California on Tuesday afternoon, less than 24 hours after Buckingham Palace announced the King's health condition.
Raising hopes of reconciliation
Despite their strained relationship, the meeting between Prince Harry and Prince Charles, without Harry's wife Meghan Markle and their children, raised hopes of a possible reconciliation.
A personal welcome
In an unusual move, Charles kept his helicopter waiting so he could personally welcome Harry at his London home, Clarence House.
Sources revealed that the King made a "significant" decision to delay his travel plans after Harry's gesture to fly across the Atlantic at short notice.
Their meeting is believed to have lasted just over half an hour, with Harry and his entourage leaving Clarence House around 45 minutes after their arrival.
First private meeting since Queen's death
This was the first private meeting between Harry and Charles since the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, although they have been in contact over the phone.
A happy reunion
Charles appeared happy during the reunion, as he was pictured for the first time since the Palace announced his cancer diagnosis on Monday. He was seen smiling next to Camilla in the back of the State Bentley as they waved to crowds during the short trip between Clarence House and Buckingham Palace.
Continued treatment and meetings
The King and Queen are expected to divide their time between their country residences and London. Charles will also undergo outpatient treatment for his cancer.
Cause for optimism
Insiders suggest that the delay in Charles's travel plans indicates a positive development in their relationship. Despite his strict schedule, Charles accepted the gesture of Harry flying from California at short notice, giving cause for optimism.
No plans for Sandringham visit
There are currently no plans for Harry to spend time with Charles at Sandringham, according to The Celeb Report.
