King Charles has been diagnosed with cancer, leading to the postponement of his public duties, as announced by Buckingham Palace on February 5. The diagnosis was made during treatment for a benign prostate enlargement, with subsequent tests revealing the presence of cancer.
The King has initiated regular treatments and will temporarily step back from public-facing duties while continuing State business. The disclosure aims to prevent speculation and promote understanding of cancer’s impact worldwide. Following treatment for an enlarged prostate, the King, accompanied by Queen Camilla, attended a church service, expressing positivity about his ongoing treatment.
