King Charles has cancer

Britain’s King Charles has been diagnosed with a form of cancer, Buckingham Palace announced Monday evening, according to the BBC. The British Royal House stated that it was not prostate cancer, but that the disease was discovered during recent treatment for a prostate adenoma.

The type of cancer the British monarch is suffering from has not been disclosed, but according to the Palace statement, the king began “regular treatments” on Monday.
Buckingham Palace also said the king “is completely positive about his treatment and is looking forward to returning to his full public duties.”

“During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.

His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties.

Throughout this period, His Majesty will 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. 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,” reads the Buckingham Palace’s full statement.

The King is to postpone all engagements and senior members of the Royal Household are expected to take on some of the duties.
No other information about the disease or its stage was disclosed. Although he will suspend his engagements while undergoing treatment, Charles III remains, constitutionally, head of state and sovereign of the British kingdom. King Charles is 75 years old.
