Last night Charles III publicly announced his illness. We tell you how serious everything is and who will replace him during treatment.
Unfortunately, the royal family of England has a close relationship with cancer. Elizabeth II suffered from myeloma – bone marrow cancer – at the end of her life.
Duchess Sarah Ferguson, the wife of Prince Andrew, the son of Elizabeth II, who was recently diagnosed with skin cancer, was also unlucky.
Next in line is Charles III. During prostate surgery, which he underwent recently, doctors discovered a tumor on the king. However, the disease is not associated with an already operated organ. It is unknown what exactly was affected in the king.
And today it became known that Prince William will take over Charles’s public functions, despite the fact that his wife is now also going through a period of rehabilitation and needs support.
The rebel Prince Harry has already spoken with his father and is planning to come to the UK one of these days to visit him, leaving behind his wife and children.
This immediately raised a wave of concern for the king’s health. After all, such a step is a sure sign that you need to prepare for the worst?
Hardly. Doctors have already reported that the tumor was discovered on time. And Charles did not completely abandon his royal duties.
Although Charles will postpone public appearances, he will continue to deal with state affairs and work with papers together with Queen Camila, who, in the event of the king’s complete incapacity, according to regulations, will have to replace him along with Prince William, Princess Anne and Prince Edward.
An official statement from Buckingham Palace also said that the king is feeling well: “The King is grateful to the medical staff, is optimistic about his treatment and hopes to return to full public activity as soon as possible.”
In addition, the day before the announcement of his illness, the paparazzi caught him walking with Queen Camila near Sandringham Church. And it seems that Karl was in a good mood.
The king has already begun regular treatment, so all that remains is to wait for positive news about his health. We are also looking forward to his meeting with his son Harry. We hope this will not turn into any incident or another scandal.
