King Charles III has had tough luck with his health recently. Following an enlarged prostate diagnosis and treatment Buckingham Palace has issued an official announcement stating that the current monarch has also been diagnosed with cancer.
The 75-year-old king had been released a week ago following his treatment for an enlarged prostate which was deemed to not be cancerous. But the recent development in events has been speaking opposing to it.
A Moment Of Weakness For The Royal Family
Buckingham Palace made a somber announcement today, revealing that King Charles has been diagnosed with a form of cancer. While the exact type of cancer has not been disclosed, it has been clarified that it is not prostate cancer. The announcement also revealed that the cancer was found during his treatment for his previous reigning ailment.
In a personal capacity, the King informed both his sons about his diagnosis, Prince William and Prince Harry. The Prince of Wales has been maintaining regular contact with his father. The Duke of Sussex who has relinquished his duties as a working member of the Royal Family and currently resides in the US with his wife, Meghan Markle will soon fly to meet his father. The King has returned to London from Sandringham and begun the process of his healing on Monday, February 5th. He shall halt his public duties for the time being until further notice, although he continues to oversee the “State business and official paperwork and important as usual.”
According to the issued declaration, The King “remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.” However, in the event that the King is unable to carry out his official duties, a constitutional mechanism exists wherein counselors of state can be appointed to stand in for the monarch. Currently, this includes Queen Camilla, Prince William, the Princess Royal, and Prince Edward.
