By Rosalind Russell – King Charles has been diagnosed with a form of cancer.
The news broke Monday, when Buckingham Palace released a statement and said it was discovered during his recent treatment for an enlarged prostate.

They have not specified what kind of cancer the 75-year-old monarch is facing, but said that he has started treatment.

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

He will, however, continue with his constitutional role as head of state and “will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.

No further details are being shared on the stage of cancer or a prognosis.

The news comes a week after he was discharged from a private London clinic following treatment for his enlarged prostate.

The palace added that the King “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.”
