Quinn says King is doing “very well” under the circumstances
The Queen provided a health update on the monarch, as Prince Harry's lawyer announced he had settled the remainder of his phone hacking claim against the Mirror's publisher.
The Duke of Sussex has been awarded “substantial damages” in his case against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN), which includes an interim payment to cover £400,000 costs, barrister David Sherborne said.
Harry, 39, vowed that his “mission continues” amid ongoing legal battles against popular media in the United Kingdom.
The settlement comes shortly after the Duke gave a speech at an event in the United States, peppering it with a number of jokes but not mentioning his father, who revealed on Monday that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
Meanwhile, Camilla told well-wishers that Charles was “doing very well under the circumstances” as she celebrated the charities' work at Salisbury Cathedral on Thursday evening in her first public engagement since her husband's health was announced.
Following the news, Harry rushed to the UK to reunite with his father – but he reportedly spent less than an hour with the 75-year-old royal before returning to his home in California the next day, where he had no contact with his estranged brother, Prince William. .

“I completely agree with Prince Harry that callous interference in the private lives of the Royal Family for financial gain is completely reprehensible… and I hope he stops doing it,” Morgan wrote on X.

“King Charles gave a voice to all cancer patients.”
After a somewhat public reckoning with advanced-stage prostate cancer forcing me to miss Duran's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in November 2022, my good friend, music executive Merc Mercuriadis, said to me: “Try not to try it.” Worry not, you'll feel differently once it's out in the open, your world won't seem like such an isolated place, people actually care. He was right.
I clearly remember that day – five and a half years ago – when I received the results of the biopsy. The news wasn't good: within a millisecond our world was turned upside down, just as it had been when my father first told me about his cancer diagnosis. I could barely speak and he died at the age of 67 in 2005.

The Duke of Sussex criticizes Piers Morgan after reaching settlement with MGN
The Duke of Sussex has criticized Piers Morgan's “continued attacks” against him after he reached a settlement with Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN).
In a statement read by his lawyer David Sherborne outside the High Court, Harry said: “In light of this, we once again call on the authorities to uphold the rule of law and demonstrate that no one is above it.”
“This includes Mr. Morgan, who, as editor, knew very well what was happening,” the judge said.
Mr Sherborne added: “Even his employer realized that he simply could not call him as a witness of fact at trial.
“His contempt for the court’s ruling and his continued attacks since then demonstrate why it is so important to obtain a clear and detailed ruling.”

Speaking outside the High Court, Harry's lawyer David Sherborne read out a statement from the Duke: “Following our victory in December, the Mirror Group has finally conceded the remainder of my claim which would have consisted of two further trials, additional evidence and an additional 115 articles.” .
“Everything we said was happening at Mirror Group was actually happening, and much worse, as the court ruled in a most devastating ruling.
“As the judge said just this morning, we have exposed and proven the shockingly dishonest way in which the Mirror conducted itself for many years, and then sought to hide the truth.”
