The King’s diagnosis of cancer

Like so many people I am deeply shocked at His Majesty’s diagnosis of cancer. It seems such a shame following the brilliant start he has made as our monarch. Hopefully he will be back carrying out public facing duties soon. I hope that the cancer is, like many cancers, treatable.

I admire His Majesty’s openness in not only sharing his need to have prostate treatment but also in telling us all of this cancer diagnosis. I know that many more men are seeking information and help with prostate problems as a result of His Majesty’s openness. I hope that by sharing His cancer diagnosis King Charles will likewise raise awareness and encourage people to have check ups and that more cancers will be caught early as a result. As we know early diagnosis is often the key to a good prognosis, as we hope it is in the case of his Majesty.

My thoughts are with King Charles, Her Majesty, Queen Camilla and the entire Royal Family.
