King Charles III Diagnosed With Cancer, Buckingham Palace Says: Doctors have detected cancer in Britain’s King Charles III, Buckingham Palace said in a statement released on Monday, February 5, 2024.

The unspecified cancer was discovered as doctors treated the monarch for an enlarged prostate just over a week ago. It is understood that the king has been diagnosed with cancer elsewhere in his body, not of the prostate.

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.

“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure. He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible,” the statement said.
The statement further made known that the monarch had “chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”
