Rishi Sunak, the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, has confidently assured the general public that the medical professionals were able to detect the cancer that King Charles III is suffering from in a timely manner. This statement comes a day after Buckingham Palace confirmed the diagnosis. As of now, the details surrounding the diagnosis are sparse, but it has been confirmed that the king will need to suspend his public events temporarily due to his health condition.
Sunak, who showed his support to the king immediately after hearing the news, also revealed that he maintains regular contact with him. During an interview with the BBC on Tuesday, he expressed his shock and sadness over the news. However, he remains hopeful that the treatment will be successful and will allow the king to fully recover.
The British Royal House has confirmed that King Charles III, who is currently 75 years old, is indeed suffering from cancer. However, they have only ruled out the possibility of it being prostate cancer. The alarms were raised during a treatment for an unrelated health issue, an enlarged prostate, during which the cancer was detected.
This news has dominated headlines in the British press on Tuesday, which always keeps a close eye on the movements of the royal family. Prince Henry, who is the youngest son of Charles and the late Diana of Wales, is expected to arrive in London in the next few hours. In contrast, Prince William, the first-born and heir to the throne, is scheduled to resume his official duties on Wednesday.
