Buckingham Palace has released a statement confirming that King Charles has been diagnosed with cancer. The diagnosis came to light following a hospital visit initially intended for a benign prostate enlargement procedure, during which doctors discovered another concerning issue.

Further medical examinations have since confirmed the presence of cancer. King Charles has begun a regimen of regular treatments. As a result, he has been advised by his medical team to limit his public engagements for the time being.

Despite this setback, the King will maintain his commitments to State responsibilities and official duties, managing these tasks as he always has. He expresses deep appreciation for the quick action and expertise of his medical team, attributing their promptness to the recent hospital visit.

King Charles remains optimistic about his prognosis and is eager to resume his full range of public responsibilities at the earliest opportunity. He has decided to make his health condition public to curb any speculation and hopes his openness will support broader awareness and understanding among those impacted by cancer worldwide.
