Following his cancer diagnosis, King Charles III was “reduced to tears” by supportive comments

Following his cancer diagnosis, King Charles of Britain revealed on Wednesday that he has been “reduced to tears” by the supportive letters and cards he has received. The King was having his weekly session with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, his first since resigning from public office to concentrate on his medical treatment.

Before their official visit at Buckingham Palace, Charles made jokes with Sunak while wearing a navy blue suit and tie.

In a video that the palace posted, Sunak stated, “Wonderful to see you looking so well.” The King responded with a grin and the statement, “It’s all done by mirrors.”

We’re all rooting for you. You have the support of the nation, Sunak stated.

In response, Charles said, “I’ve received so many lovely cards and notes. Most of the time, it has made me cry.

The 75-year-old monarch was diagnosed with cancer earlier this month, and Buckingham Palace announced in a statement that he would temporarily abstain from public appearances to receive treatment, with the goal of returning to full public duty as soon as possible.

On September 8, 2022, Charles succeeded to the throne, a few days after his mother, Queen Elizabeth, passed away. The formal crowning of him was on May 6, 2023.

“Today, His Majesty began a regimen of routine medical treatments. Physicians have urged him to delay engagements with the public at this period. His Majesty will carry out official paperwork and State business as normal at this time, the statement said.

The King expressed gratitude to his medical staff for their prompt action, according to the Palace. Because of a recent hospital operation, the King is thankful to his medical staff for their prompt assistance. He is still very satisfied with the care he received and is eager to resume his full public duties as soon as possible, the statement said.
