Beaming Prince Harry tries his hand at curling with Michael Buble hours after opening up about Charles’ cancer diagnosis

PRINCE Harry beamed as he tried curling today just hours after opening up about his father’s cancer diagnosis.

The Duke of Sussex, 39, was joined by Michael Buble in Canada as his and Meghan Markle’s three-day trip to launch next year’s Invictus Games draws to a close.

Just hours prior Harry said he’d hoped King Charles’ cancer diagnosis would heal the family rift.

He and Buble were all smiles as they jumped onto the ice and had a go at the sport.

The Canadian singer gave Harry a reassuring shoulder rub as he prepared to sling his stone towards the target.

Harry was the snapped with a smile ear-to-ear after what appeared to be a successful try.

The prince is soon expected to tell fans in a speech how much the country means to the royal duo, according to The Telegraph.

He fell in love with the “pace of life” on Vancouver Island when he and Meghan moved into a £11million mansion there after quitting as royals.

Harry wrote in his memoir Spare that the island offered him a “taste of freedom”.

He wrote: “What if life could be like that … all the time? What if we could spend at least part of each year somewhere far away, still doing work for the Queen, but beyond the reach of the press?

“If we could just find a place the press didn’t know about, we said, Canada might be the answer.

“Meg got in touch with a Vancouver friend, who connected us with an estate agent, and we started looking at houses.”

Meanwhile, Meghan lived in Toronto for six years while filming TV series Suits.

The duke today had his first wide-range chat since King Charles stepped away from public-facing duties.

He opened up about when he found out his father had cancer.

On today’s Good Morning America show, Harry said: “I spoke to him. I jumped on a plane and went to go and see him as soon as I could.

“I love my family. The fact I was able to get on a plane and see him and spend any time with him – I’m grateful for that.”

Why Charles bravely shared his cancer diagnosis

KING Charles has bravely broken with royal protocol by sharing his cancer diagnosis.

Senior royals have in past been tight-lipped about their health battles.

The last top royal diagnosed with cancer was Charles’s grandfather George VI.

Heavy smoker George had his left lung removed for “structural abnormalities” in September 1951, months before he died.

The “abnormalities” were actually a life-threatening carcinoma, but the public never learned about George’s cancer ordeal.

Buckingham Palace said Charles wanted to share his cancer diagnosis to boost “public understanding” for cancer patients worldwide.

Asked if the King’s illness could have a reunifying effect on the family, he added: “Yeah sure.

“Through all these families I see on a day-to-day basis the strength of the family unit coming together.

“Any illness, any sickness brings family together.”

When asked about Charles’ current condition, he said: “That stays between me and him.”

He said: “I have my own family as we all do. My family and life in California is how it is.

“I have got other trips planned that will take me through the UK, or back to the UK, so I will stop in and see them when I can.”

He also gave an insight into Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet’s personalities, and said he could “consider” becoming an American citizen.

A body language expert then said Harry seemed “awkward” and “disingenuous” in the interview.
