Prince Harry visits family as father battles cancer: ‘I love my family’

In a rare U.S. television appearance, Prince Harry told ABC News that he is “grateful” to have the means to hop on a transatlantic flight at a moment’s notice to visit members of his estranged family when he learned of his father’s cancer diagnosis. “I love my family. The fact that I was able to get on a plane and go see and spend any time with him, I’m grateful for that,” Prince Harry told Good Morning America while discussing the hours following the surprising announcement from Buckingham Palace.
The King’s diagnosis, which comes just 18 months after he ascended to the throne of England following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, was announced by Buckingham Palace on Feb. 5 and at 2pm on the following day, the Duke of Sussex was seen at London’s Heathrow Airport after touching down on a red-eye from L.A. From there, he was then ushered in a convoy to the royal residence Clarence House in central London, where met with his father for a reported 45 minutes.
