King Charles diagnosed with cancer – live updates

King Charles has cancer and will be postponing his public duties to receive treatment, Buckingham Palace has announced.

The King was diagnosed with cancer after receiving treatment for a benign prostate enlargement. Doctors noticed a separate issue and undertook tests.

He will now receive regular treatment at a London hospital.

He is said to be “wholly positive about his treatment”, and “looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible”. He will continue to undertake State duties including his audiences with the Prime Minister, Privy Council meetings and red boxes.

The news was announced by Buckingham Palace after the Prime Minister was informed, and the King had a chance to tell Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.]]>
