Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been criticised for "still trading blows" with the Royal Family, as two senior royals recover from their health concerns.

The King and Princess Kate are recuperating after being admitted to hospital for surgical procedures in recent weeks.

In a statement released on Monday, Buckingham Palace confirmed King Charles has been diagnosed with "a form of cancer".

The King was then visited by Prince Harry on Tuesday, as the Duke spent less than 45 minutes with his father, following the announcement.

Prince Harry then returned to Los Angeles where he prepared to travel again to Las Vegas, to present an award at the 13th Annual NFL Honours.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not publicly addressed the health of King Charles or the Princess of Wales, but insiders claim they have "reached out privately".

Following the brief visit by Prince Harry to his family, commentator Lauren Chen hit out at the couple for "still trading blows" with the Royal Family despite the King's cancer diagnosis.

Speaking to GBN America, Chen said Meghan Markle "could have used the announcement" to make amends with the royals, but instead remained in California as Harry visited alone.

Chen told host Patrick Christys: "I understand there are two opinions for Meghan. Should she have gone and maybe used this very serious news as a way to extend an olive branch and try to put everything behind them?

"We see instead she's staying in California - I guess it could be argued she doesn't want to make this whole situation about her, but at the same time, the King is her father-in-law, and I don't think it's outrageous to think that perhaps she could use this news to extend her well wishes and to try to make amends herself with King Charles."

Patrick argued that it was "probably a good thing" that Meghan stayed in California and looked after their children, Archie and Lilibet.

Chen said that Americans see "a lot of division" within the Royal Family, and isn't helped by Harry and Meghan criticising them since stepping down.

Discussing the continued rift between Prince Harry and his brother Prince William, Chen highlighted the impact of William choosing not to make plans to see Harry whilst he was in the UK.

Chen explained: "When it comes to the brothers, I think there's a lot of animosity and tension there, rightfully so. This also comes on the heels of Meghan launching another attack against Princess Kate.

"So I just can't imagine that this is going to be a comfortable reunion for everybody, which is so sad because ultimately health news like this, it's a reminder for us all that we should cherish our loved ones."

She added: "But I don't believe that Harry and Meghan are really in a position to put everything they've done behind them when it really seems like just last week they were still trading blows with the Royals."
