King Charles III Diagnosed with Cancer, Says Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace has announced that King Charles has been diagnosed with cancer. The diagnosis is not related to prostate cancer but came to light during his treatment for an enlarged prostate.

The specific type of cancer has not been disclosed, but the palace has stated that King Charles started “regular treatments” this past Monday.

According to Buckingham Palace, the King is “wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.”

His public duties will be deferred for the time being, with expectations that other members of the royal family will fill in during his absence.

Details on the cancer’s stage or the expected outcome have not been made public.

Despite stepping back from public appearances, the 75-year-old monarch will continue in his constitutional duties as the head of state.

He made a public appearance at a church service in Sandringham on Sunday, greeting onlookers.

Following a procedure for his prostate at a private hospital in London over a week ago, the King had openly shared his prostate treatment experience, hoping to inspire more men to undergo prostate examinations.

The palace noted his pleasure in having heightened awareness on the subject, with a noticeable increase in inquiries about prostate conditions on the NHS website.
