King Charles III has thanked the public for the outpouring of support and well wishes amid his recent cancer diagnosis.
This is the first statement issued by the King after having a cancer diagnosis. The Buckingham Palace did not disclose the type of cancer affecting the King.
“I would like to express my most heartfelt thanks for the many messages of support and good wishes I have received in recent days,” Charles said.
The King said he is grateful that his diagnosis shed the light on cancer organizations and groups in Britain.
“As all those who have been affected by cancer will know, such kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement,” he added.
“My lifelong admiration for their tireless care and dedication is all the greater as a result of my own personal experience,” Charles continued.
President Bongbong Marcos expressed his heartfelt best wishes to King Charles III who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
“The Philippines is with the United Kingdom in praying for the King’s swift and full recovery,” Marcos said on social media platform X.
The Buckingham Palace announced Charles’ diagnosis last Monday and said that the British monarch already started treatment.
He also recently underwent a procedure for benign prostate enlargement.
The Palace said that the cancer diagnosis came after a series of tests was conducted to the King.
