Charles III facing illness: the king discusses his chemotherapy for the first time

This is an announcement that no one expected. On February 5, Buckingham Palace revealed in a press release that King Charles was suffering from cancer. The disease was detected during an operation suffered by the monarch for an enlarged prostate. The nature of the illness was not specified but chemotherapy treatment was directly administered to William and Harry’s father, with the aim of curing it.

Long weeks of silence followed this announcement, punctuated by a few brief appearances by Charles and Camilla to attend Sunday masses at Sandringham. We will then not know more about the illness, with the exception of the cancer which also affects Kate and which was announced through a video by the Princess of Wales published on March 22.

It seems that the state of health of King Charles III is nevertheless improving. Camilla Parker Bowles’ husband has returned to royal duties, after putting pressure on his staff. His outings are certainly measured and well chosen, but the king could not be happier to be able to reconnect with the public and the official commitments that his role entails. This Monday, May 13, it was in the company of his eldest son William that Charles III made a new appearance. Father and son went to the Army Aviation Center in Middle Wallop.

Chemotherapy publicly mentioned by Charles for the first time

It’s been a long time since William and his father Charles III met face-to-face for an official outing. The king officially handed over to his son the role of colonel-in-chief of the Army Air Corps (a position held by Harry until his departure from the royal family) in front of the other soldiers on the base. One of them, veteran Aaron Mapplebeck, spoke very intimately with Charles as reported by The Sun.

He too went through the illness box. Affected by cancer, he underwent nine weeks of intensive chemotherapy just last year to treat testicular cancer. One year after the end of his treatment, he talked about the side effects that the protocol can have on a person. In particular, he revealed that loss of taste was part of it. A point visibly confirmed by the king himself, who had never before spoken in public about the treatment of chemotherapy. We can’t wait for him to talk about his remission…
