Prince Harry found out about King Charles’ prostate diagnosis from the media rather than Buckingham Palace, according to a report.
The Duke of Sussex, 39, was briefed on his father’s upcoming medical procedure, set to take place next week, in a message that reached him only after he had already read about the news online, sources told the Telegraph.
Insiders said while the palace made an effort to inform all senior members of the royal family, including Harry, the private message reached Harry after the public announcement.
Buckingham Palace announced Charles’ diagnosis at 3:25 p.m. UK time on Wednesday, which was 7:25 a.m. in California, where the Duke resides with his wife Meghan Markle, and their two children.
The Post has reached out to Harry’s reps and Buckingham Palace for comment.
An official announcement from the Palace said that the king, 75, is set to undergo a “corrective procedure” for an enlarged prostate next week.
The statement came less than an hour after Kensington Palace revealed that Kate Middleton, 42, had a planned abdominal surgery this week.
The monarch’s former royal butler, Grant Harrold, exclusively told The Post Wednesday that Prince William is no doubt feeling “anxious” that both his wife and father are sitting out of royal engagements amid their respective medical procedures.
Harrold said that Middleton being out of action for the next few months will have a “huge impact” on the royal family behind closed doors.
Harry and Meghan have remained silent since news of the royal family’s health woes.
Instead, Harry rubbed shoulders with the Hollywood elite at a star-studded event Friday night where he was inducted into the Aviation Hall of Fame.
The father-of-two, who this week withdrew his libel case against the Mail on Sunday, was named a “living legend” before being honored for his time as a helicopter co-pilot in the British Army at the Beverly Hills soiree, which he attended solo.
After taking to the stage to receive his award from John Travolta, Harry recalled the actor’s picture-perfect moment in 1985 when he danced with Diana at President Ronald Reagan’s White House dinner.
“I was just a 1-year-old when you danced with my mom at the White House and now look at us,” Harry told Travolta.
“The only thing left to do is… not dance together but fly together,” he added.
Travolta, who is the “official ambassador of aviation” and a former pilot himself, was reportedly the one who pushed for the exiled royal to be recognized for his stint in the Army.
After presenting Harry with a medal, Travolta asked him, “What can you remember about your first flight?”
“It’s classified,” Harry quipped.
