Recently-crowned King Charles the 3rd has officially been diagnosed with cancer. According to a statement released by Buckingham Palace, the 75-year-old king found out his diagnosis during a recent doctor’s visit. Due to his sickness, he will pause on public-facing duties, and continue to focus on his health. During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. “Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.” On Monday, Charles started “a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties,” the palace said, and during this time he’ll “continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.”
“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure,” the palace continued. “He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible. His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”
They did not specify what type of cancer he was diagnosed with or the type of treatment he would be receiving. Prayers up for Charles! 🙏🏾 Thoughts?
