Following his cancer diagnosis, King Charles thanks the public for their support

In his first speech since receiving a cancer diagnosis, King Charles expressed his “heartfelt thanks” to the public for their words of support. The king, who is 75 years old, said: “As all those who have been affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement.” Buckingham Palace made the diagnosis public on Monday. The King is presently receiving treatment at Sandringham for an undisclosed type of cancer. In January, while he was receiving therapy for an enlarged prostate, his cancer was discovered. The cancer’s type has not been made public, however, the Palace has clarified that it is not prostate cancer.

 

He expressed his gratitude in the following message: “It is equally encouraging to learn that disclosing my own diagnosis has aided in raising public awareness of the work being done by all the organizations that serve cancer patients and their families in the UK and throughout the world. “My lifelong admiration for their tireless care and dedication is all the greater as a result of my own personal experience.” While receiving cancer treatment, the King has resigned from all public obligations. Senior royals, such as Queen Camilla and the Prince of Wales, have assumed the King’s responsibilities at certain events.

Along with the Queen, he departed Clarence House in London on Wednesday for his home in Norfolk. Earlier that day, his younger son, the Duke of Sussex, had flown in for a short visit from the United States. One of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s guiding principles was “I have to be seen to be believed”. The frenzy of engagements has temporarily stopped, so the King won’t be seen for some time. However, he will be contacted. Furthermore, even by the typically extremely formal norms of Royal discourse, this is pretty personal.
