Queen Camilla gives update on King Charles’ health

Queen Camilla has given an update on her husband King Charles’ health.

Buckingham Palace confirmed in January that the 75-year-old British monarch was diagnosed with a form of cancer.

Prior to his diagnosis, the King underwent surgery for an enlarged prostrate, however the Palace has confirmed Charles does not have prostate cancer.

Camilla stepped in for her husband on a short trip to Northern Ireland on Thursday.

According to The Sun, during a visit to The Arcadia deli, shop assistant Brenda Robb handed over a get well card for Charles, and extended her best wishes.

Camilla took the card with thanks, adding: “He’s doing very well…. he was very disappointed he couldn’t come.”

Responding to quips about men “not being the best patients”, Camilla said: “I try to keep him in order.”

Ms Robb said: “She was beautiful, a real lady. She accepted a get well card that I got for her husband and she said she was sorry her husband wasn’t here.

“It was a very appropriate card. It had a wee saying from Belfast, basically rest up, take care, and on the back of it, it said from Ireland. It was picked with love.

“People say maybe he’ll not get the card, but I think he will.”

In his first public statement since his diagnosis, the King thanked the public for their support and well-wishes.

The King said he would like to: “express my most heartfelt thanks for the many messages of support and good wishes I have received in recent days.”

He wrote: “As all those who have been affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement.”


And in the message, written from Sandringham, he added it was “equally heartening” that sharing his diagnosis has “shone a light” on the great work carried out by cancer charities.

He said: “My lifelong admiration for their tireless care and dedication is all the greater as a result of my own personal experience.”

The King has postponed all frontline engagement as he undergoes treatment.

Charles was discharged from The London Clinic on January 29, after spending three nights there.

He is currently staying at Sandringham.

In a statement, the Palace said: “During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.”


“His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties.”

“Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.

“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure.”


“He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.

The statement concluded: “His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”
