In a recent update on King Charles III’s health, Queen Camilla shared that the monarch is doing “extremely well under the circumstances” following his cancer diagnosis. This update came during her first solo outing since the announcement of the King’s health condition. She attended a musical event at Salisbury Cathedral, which supported the work of local charities.
King’s diagnosis was revealed earlier this week, with Buckingham Palace stating that a form of cancer was detected during an operation Charles underwent in late January.
The specific type of cancer has not been disclosed, but it is understood that it is not prostate cancer. The palace expressed gratitude for the swift intervention of the medical team, made possible by the recent hospital procedure.
King Charles is currently residing at the Sandringham royal estate in the country, where he will recuperate during his outpatient treatment. The Queen mentioned that both she and the King are very touched by the letters and messages of support from the public.
Prince William also shared an update on the health of both the King and his wife, Catherine, Princess of Wales. He expressed gratitude for the kind messages of support, especially in recent days. The prince humorously noted that the past few weeks have had a ‘medical’ focus, which led him to attend an air ambulance function to get away from it all.
This news highlights the strong support and concern for the royal family’s health and well-being from the public and their close ones.
