No news on the type of cancer but according to a palace statement the King began “regular treatments” this Monday. Buckingham Palace says King Charles “is optimistic about his treatment and looks forward to returning to fully carrying out his public duties”
Tumor diagnosis for King Charles III, 75, who, as revealed by Buckingham Palace, began treatment today.
The news comes just over a week after treatment for an enlarged prostate: the British sovereign was discharged on Monday 29 January from the London Clinic after surgery the previous Friday for a benign prostate condition. After three nights spent in hospital, he returned to his residence, accompanied by Queen Consort Camilla.
Buckingham Palace clarified that the cancer is not in the prostate, but was diagnosed following the operation he underwent last month.
