British monarch diagnosed with a form of cancer, palace says

 February 6, 2024  

London — In a recent development, King Charles has initiated out-patient cancer treatment following a diagnosis made during his recent hospitalization for a benign enlarged prostate. Spending the night at home, the monarch’s health status has garnered significant attention both nationally and internationally.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak conveyed his reassurance, stating that he remains in “regular contact” with the King and expressed gratitude for the early detection of the illness. This revelation comes after Buckingham Palace disclosed the discovery of cancer during the King’s hospital stay.

While specifics about the type of cancer remain undisclosed by the Palace, King Charles has decided to defer public engagements temporarily. Nevertheless, he remains committed to fulfilling state duties and will continue his weekly meetings with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

In a gesture of familial support, Prince Harry, currently residing in the US, has communicated with his father and is expected to journey to the UK in the forthcoming days, indicating solidarity with the royal family during this challenging period.
