Prince Harry is reportedly "bored" with living it up in his Montecito, Calif., mansion with Meghan Markle, and longs to return to the royal rota in his father King Charles III's monarchy.

"Being a royal is the only thing he is trained to do," royal author Tom Quinn told an outlet.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now lived away from the British monarchy for four years.

The Duke of Sussex, along with Meghan Markle, infamously left the monarchy in early 2020 in a scandal that is forever known as "Megxit."

Prince Harry is reportedly set to sporadically return to the U.K. to help King Charles III during his continuing cancer treatment. Friends of the Montecito Duke have told an outlet that the fifth in line to the throne will even work as a typical senior royal during these visits, breaking his four-year-long absence from the royal stage.

"He knows that to retain his value and the interest of the world, he is better off not being a retired royal, so offering to come back to help out at least reminds the world who and what he is," Quinn added.

Speaking on Good Morning America on Friday, February 16, the fiery-haired prince shared: "I have got many trips planned that will take me through the U.K. or back to the U.K., so I will my family as much as I can."

When asked by one of the hosts to share his outlook on His Majesty's health, the Duke of Sussex replied: "That stays between me and him."

He then majorly broke Buckingham Palace protocol, which prohibits revealing discussions about royal health, by stating: "Look, I love my family. The fact that I was able to get on a plane and go and see him and spend any time with him, I'm grateful for that. Throughout all these families I see it on a day-to-day basis, again, the strength of the family unit coming together. I think any illness, any sickness, brings families together."

There was no mention of Prince William, who is believed to have made it a point to stay far away from his youngest brother during the February 6, 45-minute reunion between the King and Harry.

"Harry was apparently visibly shocked and upset when he heard that his father had cancer," Quinn observed. "Having lost his mother aged 12 he had come to assume that, whatever their ups and downs, his father would enjoy the longevity enjoyed by the late Queen [Elizabeth] and Prince Philip."

Quinn further added: "Harry knows he will never be allowed to be a permanent part-time working royal staying six months in the States and then six months in the U.K. The family no longer trusts him and, besides, Meghan is absolutely against it. There is far too much bad blood now for it to be even a remote possibility."
