King Charles to suspend public functions, proceeds for cancer treatment 


CITIZENS COMPASS —Less than two years after he took over the baton of leadership from his late mother, Britain’s King Charles will likely suspend public functions as he has been diagnosed with cancer. Buckingham Palace has announced in a statement.

The 75 years old king had spent three nights in hospital last month after undergoing a corrective procedure for an enlarged prostate, when a separate issue of concern was noted. 

The palace said that tests had identified a form of cancer. A royal source told the Reuters news agency that it was not prostate cancer.

Last month, Charles was hospitalized to treat an enlarged prostate. During his procedure, doctors noted “a separate issue of concern.” Further diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer, the palace said.

Charles began treatment Monday for the cancer and will postpone public-facing duties for the time being.

“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure,” Buckingham Palace said. “He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.”
