grim reaper, king charles, cancer diagnosis

King Charles speaks out publicly for the first time since Buckingham Palace disclosed his cancer treatment initiation earlier this week.

In a released statement on Saturday, the monarch expressed gratitude for the overwhelming support received. He acknowledges the comforting effect of well-wishes and notes the positive impact of sharing his diagnosis on raising awareness and supporting cancer patients globally.

While the palace did not specify the cancer type or severity, Charles remains optimistic about his treatment. Advised by doctors to limit public engagements, he vows to fulfil state duties and anticipates a return to full public service soon.

“I would like to express my most heartfelt thanks for the many messages of support and good wishes I have received in recent days,” Charles said in what the palace called “a thank you message” released on Saturday.

The Cancer Diagnosis

“As all those who have been affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement,” the king said, adding that it was “equally heartening to hear how sharing my own diagnosis has helped promote public understanding and shine a light on the work of all those organisations which support cancer patients and their families across the UK and wider world.”

“My lifelong admiration for their tireless care and dedication is all the greater as a result of my own experience,” the king said.

In the statement disclosing the king’s cancer diagnosis earlier this week, the palace did not specify the type of cancer Charles had or its severity.

“During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted,” the palace said in a statement shared with HuffPost at the time, adding, “Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.”
