Buckingham Palace has announced that King Charles III has been diagnosed with cancer.

The recent discovery occurred during 75-year-old Charles’ treatment at the London Clinic for a non-cancerous enlarged prostate.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “During the king’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted.

“Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.

“His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties.

“Throughout this period, his majesty will continue to undertake state business and official paperwork as usual.

“The king is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure.

“He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.

“His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”

Contrary to some misconceptions, the diagnosis does not involve prostate cancer, which may have been mistakenly assumed due to the prior diagnosis of benign prostate enlargement.

The monarch returned to London from Sandringham for outpatient treatment.

His last public appearance was on Sunday at Sandringham, accompanying the queen to a church service.

This marked his first public appearance since being discharged from the London Clinic.

During the outing, he greeted well-wishers with a smile and wave as he walked to St Mary Magdalene church in Sandringham, Norfolk.

Reacting to the news, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak tweeted:

“Wishing His Majesty a full and speedy recovery.

“I have no doubt he’ll be back to full strength in no time and I know the whole country will be wishing him well.”

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer wished the king “all the very best for his recovery”.

The Commons speaker, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, told MPs: “I know the whole house will wish to join me in expressing our sympathies with His Majesty the King following the news announcement this evening.

“Our thoughts are, of course, with his majesty and his family, and we’d all wish to send him our very best wishes for the successful treatment and a speedy recovery following tonight’s news.”

While he undergoes treatment, King Charles III will postpone public-facing duties.
