King Charles is dealing with a big health problem. The leader of the British monarchy has been told he has cancer, as said by the Palace.
We don’t know exactly what type of cancer he has or how serious it is. But the Palace told everyone that he’s starting treatment today.
A few days ago, King Charles went to the hospital for surgery because his prostate was enlarged. It was supposed to be a normal operation, but while doing it, doctors found out about the cancer. Even though they haven’t said what kind of cancer it is, it’s not prostate cancer.
The statement from Buckingham Palace said, “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.”
The statement also says that because of his treatments, King Charles will have to delay or change his royal responsibilities.
“Today, His Majesty started getting regular treatments. Doctors have told him to hold off on doing public events for now. But he’ll still do his official work and paperwork like always.”
“The King is thankful to his doctors for acting quickly to help him, especially after his recent hospital visit. He’s staying hopeful about his treatment and wants to get back to his normal royal duties as soon as he can.
He decided to tell people about his cancer to stop rumors and to help others understand what’s going on, especially those who are dealing with cancer themselves.”
The King’s most recent photo was taken yesterday, a day before his diagnosis was disclosed with the public.
He was seen waving the crowd with his wife Camilla while on their way to the church service in Sandringham.
According to People magazine, King Charles told his sons about his diagnosis himself. William talks to his dad every day, but Harry, who lives in sunny California with Meghan after they left their royal roles, is planning to visit Britain soon.
The King also told his brothers and sister, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward, about his diagnosis before it was announced to everyone.
