Charles III diagnosed with cancer

When the monarch was receiving treatment in late January for a benign prostate problem, physicians discovered he had cancer; the two conditions are unrelated.

On January 26 he was admitted to a private clinic in London, and on January 29 he was released. All forthcoming events involving him have been postponed, since it was claimed at the time that he was feeling good but would need to spend "some time in rest".

The monarch has been receiving cancer treatment since February 5. He will receive the treatment as an outpatient in London and, per medical recommendation, will postpone all public meetings while undergoing treatment. He will carry on working on official paperwork concurrently, according to Buckingham Palace.

The Daily Mail reports that Charles expressed gratitude to the doctors through the press service for the prompt diagnosis, expressed optimism, and stated that he hoped to recover and return to duty as soon as possible. He made the diagnosis public in order to prevent rumors.
