During the 75-year-old monarch’s three-night hospital stay for prostrate treatment last month, “a separate issue of concern was noted,” the palace said. “Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.”
The type of cancer was not disclosed.
“Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake state business and official paperwork as usual,” the palace stated.
Working royals: With King Charles having to step back from public duties, others royal representatives of the British monarchy, known as “working royals,” will have to step in to fill those responsibilities.
