BREAKING: King Charles III diagnosed with cancer

Buckingham Palace has announced that King Charles III has been diagnosed with a form of cancer.

The King, who underwent surgical treatment for an enlarged prostate at the end of January, has today started cancer treatments, and will continue along with State business and official paperwork while stepping back from public duties for the time being.

Buckingham Palace announced that the King “has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”

King Charles, the Palace said, “is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure. He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.”
