‘I LOVE MY FAMILY’ Harry says he hopes Charles’ cancer fight will heal royal rift as he opens up on dash back to UK on Good Morning America

 Prince Harry has said he hopes King Charles' cancer diagnosis will heal his family's rift and opened up in a bombshell new interview as he returns to the UK to see his father.

The Duke of Sussex is sitting down for wide-ranging talks for the first time since Charles suspended all public-facing duties.

He is also due to talk about his life with Meghan - who is reportedly trying to "reconcile" with Kate and Charles - as well as the Invictus Games during the broadcast, which the host Will be broadcast on Good Morning America with Will Reeve.

Harry, who lives in California with his wife and their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, flew to the UK last week to see the king.

He traveled thousands of miles from his California home to visit King – but only met his father for 30 minutes.

On the Today show, Harry said: “I spoke to her. I got on a plane and went to meet her as quickly as I could.

"I love my family. The fact that I was able to get on a plane and see them and spend any time with them — I'm grateful for that."

Asked if the king's illness could have an impact on the family reunion, she said: "Yes, definitely.

“Through all of these families I see the strength of the family unit coming together day after day.

"Any illness, any disease brings the family together."

The Reeve then asks the Duke how he is coping with his father's illness.

He said, "I have a family just like we all do. My family and life in California is the same."

“I have other trips planned that will take me through the UK or back to the UK, so I'll stop by and see them whenever I can.”

Harry also revealed how he has "considered" obtaining US citizenship - but he doesn't "feel" American.

He explained: "US citizenship is something that has crossed my mind. But it's not a high priority for me right now."

The couple are in Vancouver this week to celebrate 12 months before Harry's Invictus Games 2025.

Duke interviewed former military personnel who participated.

“These guys are the stars of the show,” he said.

"Once you leave the military you never leave the community."

Harry and Meghan were criticized this week for launching a new rebranded website - using their royal titles and crest - amid the monarch's health problems.

It comes after the defiant Meghan and Harry faced sharp criticism for their rebrand.

The Queen was criticized for not consulting the royal family first after she banned the couple from using 'SussexRoyal' when they stepped away from royal duties four years ago.

A representative for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told The Mirror: "We've heard again and again that some occasions are make or break for the couple.

"They are still here. Despite constant challenge and criticism, they are still working and pursuing what they believe in."

"This pair will not break."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in Canada on Tuesday to mark the one-year anniversary of the Invictus Games being held in 2025.

On Thursday, the couple was once again seen at Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort in British Columbia.

He spoke to participants who will be doing skeleton bobsledding while attending a training session for the Invictus Games.
