Buckingham Palace has announced that King Charles III, aged 75, has been diagnosed with a form of cancer following treatment for an enlarged prostate. Although the specific type of cancer has not been revealed, the palace says the king has begun "regular treatments" and is optimistic about his recovery.
After the health problems that followed him in recent years, everything culminated in the diagnosis of cancer. "During a recent hospital procedure for a benign prostate enlargement, a separate matter of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests identified some form of cancer.
His Majesty has today begun a regular treatment schedule and his doctors have advised him to postpone his public duties. During during this period, he will continue to perform state affairs and official paperwork as usual," the palace said.
The diagnosis was made during his recent medical care for an enlarged prostate, a condition that initially caused immediate concern during the hospital procedure. Despite this serious illness, he will continue to fulfill his constitutional role as head of state but to a lesser extent during his treatment.
It was his decision to give a dose of optimism to his family and the residents of Great Britain. "The King is grateful to his medical team for the quick intervention, which was possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure.
He remains completely positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to public duty as soon as possible," confirmed the King's optimism from the palace.
Although King Charles III will step back from public engagements during his treatment, other members of the royal family are expected to help fulfill his role when he is not present.
King Charles III remains completely positive about his treatment. A statement from Buckingham Palace assured the public that King Charles III is looking forward to resuming his public duties as soon as possible. It is important to note that King Charles III, despite health problems, attended the church service at Sandringham on Sunday, where he waved to the crowd.
The palace did not reveal the specific type of cancer, but clarified that the condition is not related to problems with the prostate and that it is not prostate cancer, which further complicates the diagnosis. The monarch's positive outlook and commitment to continuing his constitutional duties during treatment give hope that the king will recover.
However, we still do not have concrete information about the type and stage of cancer, but judging by the king's optimism, everything will be in the best order. Source: BBC
