King Charles III to resume public duties next week after cancer treatment

The British monarch, King Charles III, will resume his public duties next week following a three-month break to focus on his treatment and recuperation.

A few months ago, the British monarch was diagnosed with an undisclosed type of cancer and has been receiving treatment.

However, Buckingham Palace on Friday said the monarch would be visiting a cancer treatment centre on Tuesday, the first of several public appearances he will make in the coming weeks.

According to the palace, one of his first major engagements will be to host a state visit by the emperor and empress of Japan in June.

The palace didn’t provide an update on the king’s treatment but said his medical team is “very encouraged by the progress made so far and remains positive about the king’s continued recovery.”

Charles continued his state duties, including reviewing government documents and meeting with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, after his diagnosis was disclosed on February 5.

“As the first anniversary of the coronation approaches, their majesties remain deeply grateful for the many kindnesses and good wishes they have received from around the world throughout the joys and challenges of the past year,’’ the palace said in a statement.

Charles’ return will relieve pressure on other members of the royal family after the king’s absence, coupled with that of the Princess of Wales, also due to illness, highlighted the challenges faced by a slimmed-down monarchy.
