The king also shared his diagnosis “in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.
“The King 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.”
Charles became king after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in September 2022.
In May 2023, King Charles III ascended to the throne in a grand ceremony that brought together the royal family, 4,000 British and Commonwealth troops, and about 100 world leaders.
