“The greatest comfort and encouragement”

King Charles III spoke out publicly for the first time after his cancer diagnosis and thanked him for the well-wishes from all over the world. He praised that the news of his diagnosis had raised awareness about cancer.

For the first time since his cancer diagnosis, the British King Charles III. addressed the public directly and thanked them for their support over the past few days. “I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the many messages of support and good wishes I have received over the last few days,” the 75-year-old monarch said, according to a statement released by Buckingham Palace late Saturday evening .

“As anyone affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement,” the statement continued. He said it was also heartening to hear that sharing his own diagnosis had helped to advance public understanding of cancer and shine a light on the work of all those supporting cancer patients and their families in the UK and around the world.

His own illness made his “lifelong admiration for her tireless care and commitment” even greater, the king said.

Camilla: Charles is doing well under the circumstances

Buckingham Palace announced on Monday that Charles had been diagnosed with cancer. During his recent hospital treatment for a benign prostate enlargement, another problem emerged, it said. The subsequent diagnostic tests would have detected a form of cancer. The palace did not say exactly what species it was. But it shouldn't be prostate cancer.

Her husband is doing “extremely well” given the circumstances, Queen Camilla said on Thursday evening during her first public appearance after the diagnosis was announced.

In the eastern English county of Norfolk, Charles attended the morning service with Camilla at the church of St. Mary Magdalene, which is located near his country estate Sandringham.

Great dismay

Politicians from all over the world reacted to the news of the cancer diagnosis with dismay and well-wishes. These included Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, US President Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron.

King Charles III has been the British monarch for more than a year after his mother Queen Elizabeth II died in September 2022.
