Royal Commentator Ingrid Seward has warned Prince Harry that the Royal Family “doesn’t need him” to return, following the latest health update from the King.
King Charles confirmed in a statement released on Monday that he has been diagnosed with “a form of cancer”.
The announcement follows a recent “corrective procedure” for a “benign enlarged prostate” last week.
The King appeared in good spirits as he left The London Clinic hospital as Queen Camilla claimed the monarch was “looking forward to going back to work”.

In the statement released by Buckingham Palace, it reads that the King is “wholly positive” about his diagnosis, and will receive “scheduled regular treatment”.
The King has also been advised to cancel all “public-facing duties” until he has completed his treatment.
Following the King’s update, it was confirmed that estranged son Prince Harry will be flying to the UK from his home in California.
The Duke of Sussex is due to arrive in the coming days and has had a request to stay in Windsor accepted.

Following the announcement of Prince Harry’s trip, Editor in Chief of Majesty Magazine Ingrid Seward told GB News that the visit is “unhelpful” and the Royal Family “do not need” his arrival amid the ongoing health concerns of both the King and Princess of Wales.
Seward told hosts Bev Turner and Andrew Pierce: “They really don’t need somebody coming into this mix at the slightly tense moment that is going to cause more problems that they can solve.
“But of course Harry wants to see his father and he has hasn’t fallen out with his father, despite what he said about about the Queen, Charles has remained very calm about it.”
She added: “The Royal Family don’t like confronting these emotional issues, and I think Harry will be perfectly nice to everyone, and then they’ll just hope that he goes back pretty soon.”

When asked for her thoughts on King Charles’s cancer diagnosis and concerns for his health, Seward highlighted that the King is “normally a very private person”.
Seward stated: “He must have really felt very strongly that he wanted the palace to make this announcement – he probably feels that being completely open like this is the best way to go.
“It will be immensely frustrating for him now that he does have to step back. But he’s going to have to take care of his health because he wants to make a full recovery, which you know we believe he can do.
“So he will be frustrated, but he will just be working as he always does. But hopefully he won’t be working into the small hours of the morning like he used to do.”
