King Charles cancer: What we know and what might happen next

Britain’s King Charles III has been diagnosed with a form of cancer, distinct from the benign prostate enlargement he underwent corrective surgery for in January. The palace clarified that it is not prostate cancer but a separate issue identified during the previous hospitalization.

King Charles will postpone public engagements but continue working behind the scenes, maintaining state business and official paperwork. Prince William, the heir to the throne, may assume some of his father’s duties. Queen Camilla will continue public engagements, and Prince Harry, who has been estranged, is reported to return to Britain after the diagnosis.

The reaction to the news varied among UK newspapers, with some expressing support and understanding, while others raised concerns about the selective information provided. Political leaders globally, including Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and U.S. President Joe Biden, sent well-wishes for a speedy recovery. There are mixed opinions on how the diagnosis may impact King Charles’s ability to fulfill public duties, with some suggesting he needs to slow down, while others believe he won’t consider abdicating the throne.
