King Charles III Diagnosed With Cancer


(BBC) King Charles has been diagnosed with a form of cancer, says Buckingham Palace.

It is not prostate cancer, but was discovered during his recent treatment for an enlarged prostate.

The type of cancer has not been revealed, but according to a palace statement the King began “regular treatments” on Monday.

Buckingham Palace says the King “remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible”.

He will postpone his public engagements and it is expected other senior royals will help to stand in for him during his treatment.

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

The King, 75, returned to London from Sandringham in Norfolk on Monday morning and the palace says he has commenced treatment as an outpatient.

Although he will pause his public events, the King will continue with his constitutional role as head of state, including paperwork and private meetings.

He was seen at a church service in Sandringham on Sunday, where he waved to crowds.

He had a prostate procedure at a private London hospital more than a week ago.

The King had chosen to go public about his prostate treatment, with the aim of encouraging more men to get prostate checks, the palace said at the time.

He was said to have been delighted to have raised awareness about the issue, with the NHS website reporting a surge in issues about prostate conditions.

For many types of cancer, the chance of getting it increases with age. UK figures suggest, on average each year, more than a third (36%) of new cancer cases were in people aged 75 and over.


    • To hell with Charles, and to even more hell with the English. Do not waste our time printing more stories about hatchet faced inbred tyrant whom the English call their queen. Do the English print news about Zambia in their newspapers?

    • When you are a dwarf, and have no education, you worship white skin. I noticed that you did the same thing when Matani was mentioned a few weeks ago. I have asked people to look for you in England and to report you to the government of Zambia when you are found, so that you can be extradited to Zambia in a little box (since you are a dwarf) and have your ugly little ass tried for your many crimes

  1. @ Tikki
    White man gets sick…
    Black man….” Boss we sick”

    White mans house is on fire
    Black man runs to put the fire out risking his own life…..

    Its called ” House Negroee mentality” and this is Tikki and Spaka

    • Grade 6 mentality
      You at a stage where you still have to recognise your own short comings
      I wont even mention the last 60 yeas

  2. House negroee mentality indeed. What has this got to do with Zambia? Maybe our white lapdog will find an excuse to go flying again.
