The King was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year

A royal commentator has claimed that the King "is responding well" to his cancer treatment after the monarch was diagnosed with the illness earlier this year.

Speaking to Patrick Christys on GB News, Editor-at-large for the Mail on Sunday, Charlotte Griffiths said: "I am hearing that he's actually responding genuinely, really well to cancer treatment.

"And everyone in the royal household is feeling positive and upbeat about how he's responding."

The 75-year-old paused all public-facing duties after announcing his illness which was discovered after having corrective surgery for an enlarged prostate.

There have been recent reports that Charles would like a 'reconciliation' between his sons William and Harry and hopes to reunite the siblings next month at the Invictus Games.

However, Griffiths revealed that she does not think that William would be willing to reunite with his estranged brother.


She explained: "The idea that William is looking for a reconciliation is for the birds.

"This is a guy who has a lot of big things on his plate. He has two very sick relatives one of whom is his wife.

"He is planning to be the future King, who knows how long that could be. That must be at the forefront of his mind.

"He could be the King in the next few years and the idea that he's going to get bogged down by more psychodrama from his brother, from Montecito, from Meghan.

"I mean, he's just he's moved past all of that. He's actually past the angry stage. I'm hearing he just can't be bothered with those guys anymore."

There have been tensions between Prince Harry and his brother since Harry released his memoir Spare, in which he criticised William.

In the book, the Duke of Sussex said that he and William had an argument and William allegedly called his wife Meghan "rude", "difficult" and "abrasive".

Prince Harry is expected to return to Britain in May for an Invictus Games event, however, whether his wife and children accompany him hangs in the balance.

A source has claimed that the Duke of Sussex asked his wife to join him on his trip to Britain stating: "I don’t want to do this alone.

The source added that Harry told his wife that he doesn’t want to "keep making solo trips to the UK".

While Harry visited his father in February, Meghan and their children, Archie and Lilibet, stayed at home in California for the visit.

The source said: "He [Harry] would prefer it if the entire family made regular visits to see his family and build bridges. There is so much going on behind the scenes that it just isn't possible at the moment."
