Britain’s King Charles Diagnosed with Cancer at the Age of 75


Britain’s King Charles, who became monarch in September 2022, has been diagnosed with cancer at the age of 75. Buckingham Palace announced on Monday (Feb 5) that he will temporarily step back from public duties to undergo treatment. Despite initial concerns about his potential impact as a monarch, Charles had quietly adapted to his role, maintaining a busy schedule.

King Charles, known for his dedication and hard work, has always maintained a rigorous daily exercise routine and avoided lunch. Supporters and critics alike have acknowledged his commitment. Details of royal health are usually private, and there was no indication of his cancer diagnosis when he appeared in public on Sunday, attending church with Queen Camilla.

Prince Harry, who has had public disagreements with the royal family, is returning to Britain to be with his father during his illness.

As messages of support pour in from world leaders, ordinary Britons express their concern and well-wishes for the king. Charles’ illness has stirred emotions, particularly among those who grew up during Queen Elizabeth’s reign, with many fondly remembering her.
