Buckingham Palace announced today that King Charles has been diagnosed with cancer. He will have to postpone his public duties to receive treatment, but will continue to undertake «State business and official paperwork» as usual. The king remains positive about his treatment and look forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible. The cancer was discovered in connection with his recent treatment for a benign prostate enlargement. The type of cancer has not been released, but a spokesman has ruled out prostate cancer.
According to The Telegraph, the announcement was given after the king had personally informed members of his family, including his two sons and siblings, as well as the prime minister. The Duke of Sussex is expected to travel from California very soon to visit his father.
