William returns to royal duties after Harry spends night at London hotel

London: Prince William has returned to royal duties for the first time since his father was diagnosed with cancer and his wife underwent abdominal surgery.

The Prince of Wales carried out an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle this morning and is expected to later attend a gala fundraising dinner for London’s Air Ambulance Charity in the evening.

The father-of-three had taken a break from official engagements to care for the Princess of Wales and their children after she spent 13 days recovering in hospital from her procedure.

But as King Charles is forced to postpone public engagements as he undergoes cancer treatment, other members of the royal family, including William, have stepped up.

His busy day comes as his brother Prince Harry reportedly stayed in a London hotel on Tuesday night following his brief reunion with their father.

The Duke cleared his schedule to fly from California to see the King for a meeting that lasted roughly 30 minutes.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex vacated Frogmore Cottage in Windsor last year leaving them without a base in the UK and now need a “formal invitation” to be able to stay with the royals on “protected property”.
