In a touching twist of events, His Majesty King Charles III came out to speak on his recent cancer diagnosis to the deep and personal response to the overwhelming public support. This news comes only days after the official announcement made by Buckingham Palace concerning the health condition of the monarch.

This was coming five days after the health status of the King was made public knowledge. On February 10, the 75-year-old sent a heartwarming letter to the general public. The letter was accompanied by a bright picture of the King meeting well-wishers in 2023, it was attached to the page of the Royal family on Instagram.

"I want to express my deepest gratitude for the plural support and good wishes that have reached me over the last days," said the King in the letter. He emphasized the solace and encouragement that such gestures of kindness bring, especially to those touched by cancer.

The message further pointed out that raising awareness among people towards cancer was important, and recognized the work of the organizations supporting the patients and their families in the UK and around the world, as priceless.

He noted how he has always looked up to them for their unfailing care and dedication, something that now has more meaning due to his personal experience with the illness.

Buckingham Palace has announced that the King has been diagnosed with an unspecified type of cancer around a week after being discharged from hospital where he was treated for a benign prostate enlargement.

The announcement came while he was in hospital addressing a separate health concern. The palace has made it clear it isn't prostate cancer. The king has since begun treatment regularly with the doctors advising that he cuts down public engagements in the process.

Queen Camilla has spoken for the first time about the King's condition and has thanked "the many messages of good wishes and people's kindness" at a charity concert in Salisbury Cathedral.
