Shock in Britain: King Charles was diagnosed with cancer

Buckingham Palace announced on Monday that King Charles III had been diagnosed with cancer.

“During the King’s recent surgery in hospital for a benign enlargement of the prostate, a separate matter of concern was noted,” the emailed statement said.

“Subsequent diagnostic tests identified a form of cancer.”

Buckingham Palace did not say what type of cancer he was diagnosed with or what stage it had reached.

A week after leaving

This news comes a week after Kate and King Charles left a private clinic in London after individual procedures. The royal underwent a “corrective procedure” for an enlarged prostate, while Kate underwent unspecified abdominal surgery on January 17 for an unspecified procedure.

The statement added, “Today, His Majesty the King began a regular treatment program, during which his doctors advised him to postpone his public duties.”

Buckingham Palace did not say what type of cancer he was diagnosed with or what stage it had reached.

King Charles ascended to the throne last year at a coronation ceremony in May, months after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. Elizabeth ruled until her death at the age of 96 in September 2022. She was Britain's longest-reigning monarch, sitting on the throne for 70 years.

Meanwhile, Kate is still recovering, but her husband Prince William is set to return to his royal duties by attending the Air Ambulance Gala Dinner in London on Wednesday.

Kensington Palace said earlier that the Princess of Wales is unlikely to return to her royal duties before Easter, which falls on March 31 this year. No date has been set for the king's return to his duties.
