Prince Harry ‘Has No Plans’ to Visit Ailing Kate Middleton During UK Visit

Prince Harry’s return to the UK next month is drawing considerable attention, especially in light of the recent health concerns surrounding his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. Despite the gravity of the situation, it appears that Prince Harry is unlikely to visit Kate during his trip.

This decision has sparked various speculations about the current dynamics within the royal family, especially following recent tensions. A spokesperson for the Invictus Games, an international sporting event founded by Prince Harry for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans confirmed that the Duke of Sussex is scheduled to attend a Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, royal author Tom Bower claimed while the prince might spare some time to inquire after his cancer-stricken father King Charles, meeting with the Princess of Wales is “unlikely.” “I’m sure he won’t see Kate,” he affirmed.

“But to reassert his royalty and his titles to enhance his brand, he will make a huge effort to be seen visiting his father, the King,” explained the author. “I would be surprised if Meghan came.” “The only hope of reconciliation is that it would happen privately and we wouldn’t know,” he added. They also released a public statement in support of Kate, wishing her “health and healing” during the difficult time. 

This event, set for May 8, will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games, highlighting a decade of remarkable achievements in supporting the rehabilitation of its participants through sports. The news of Harry’s planned attendance comes amidst reports that he and his wife, Meghan, had previously reached out to Kate after she disclosed last month that she had been diagnosed with an undisclosed form of cancer.

The couple’s gesture of concern was seen as a significant olive branch, given the widely reported strains in their relationship with the British royal family following their move to the United States and subsequent stepping back from senior royal duties. Kate Middleton, who is widely respected for her role and contributions as a senior member of the royal family, has maintained a relatively low profile regarding her health issues.

The future Queen of England’s diagnosis has undoubtedly caused concern among royal watchers and the public alike, who hold her in high regard for her public service and charitable work. The lack of a scheduled visit by Prince Harry to see Kate during his upcoming UK trip could be interpreted in various ways. It might reflect ongoing challenges within the family or perhaps the practicalities surrounding his brief visit centered on the Invictus Games commitments.

Furthermore, the decision might be influenced by respecting Kate’s privacy and health at this time, as she may need rest and minimal public exposure. This situation places Prince Harry in a delicate position as he navigates his roles within and outside the royal family.

His involvement with the Invictus Games continues to be a significant part of his identity and public persona, showcasing his commitment to supporting veterans and their families. As such, his visit to the UK, while primarily for the Invictus Games, underscores the complex balance of personal and public responsibilities that Harry continues to manage since his move abroad.
