King Charles diagnosed with cancer

King Charles III

The BVI’s head of State – King Charles III – has been diagnosed with cancer and has been advised by his doctors to minimize in-person contacts, Buckingham Palace announced Monday.

Monarchs’ ailments are often hidden from the public, so this announcement of the King’s condition is a departure from how things have been done in the past.

″During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted,” the palace said in an emailed statement. “Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.”

The statement also did not specify what stage the cancer was found.

The palace said the 75-year-old king has commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties.

According to the statement, the king wanted to share his diagnosis in part to avoid speculation on his condition but also “in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”

No further details are being shared about his treatment or prognosis. His diagnosis comes just a year and a few months after his mother Queen Elizabeth’s passing. She was the longest reigning British monarch in history.

    I’m really hoping Natalio has already sent a nice message, but fear he may just see it as another window of opportunity, and more down with the UK, and immature racist stuff.

    No one blogged sympathy to the monach speaks volumes of the country interpretion of

    Callous. UnChrist like society

      I’ve noticed that there a singular post on this all day, and it spoke volumes to me. I just checked in to see if anything changed since this morning, but nada.

      Regardless of whatever feelings we may have towards the U.K, or the monarchy, one would think as a human being, people would wish anyone recently diagnosed with cancer of some sort well wishes. But no, silence all day.

      This just shows the hypocrisy of this place. The so called Christian society is ONLY a Christian society when it comes to gay marriage. Wishing someone who was recently diagnosed with cancer does not apparently interest them rightly or wrongly.

      As for me, I wish anyone who is afflicted with any illness well, and that includes the King, despite I believe this country should be heading towards an independent path at some time in our future.

      We comment on about everything on this forum under the sun. Why not this one? Only God knows what’s in people’s hearts.
