MADRID, 5 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Buckingham Palace confirmed this Monday that monarch Charles III has been diagnosed with cancer, detected during his recent prostate operation, and that he has already started a series of "regular treatments."
"His Majesty began a program of regular treatments today, during which time doctors have advised him to postpone his public duties," reads a statement released by the British royal family.
Thus, Carlos III has expressed his gratitude to the medical team for their quick intervention, facilitated thanks to the recent surgical intervention for an enlarged prostate that he underwent just a few days ago.
Buckingham stressed that the monarch "remains entirely positive about the treatment received and looks forward to returning to full public duties as soon as possible."
Finally, the royal family has highlighted that Charles III has chosen to announce this news to avoid speculation and in the hope that it will contribute to raising awareness about cancer.
Charles III ascended to the throne at the beginning of May 2023 after the death months ago of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, after more than 70 years of reign.
