The President of the United States Joe Biden has expressed concerns over British leader King Charles III after an announcement that he was diagnosed with cancer.
Buckingham Palace has announced that the king is currently undergoing “regular treatments” following a recent cancer diagnosis.
The 75-year-old Monarch was discharged from the hospital a week ago after treatment for an enlarged prostate.
“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,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.
Along with President Biden who said he “only heard” of the sad development, former president Donald Trump also sent a recovery message via hisTruth Social Network.
Trump said King Charles was “a wonderful man” and “we all pray that he has a fast and full recovery!”
The Palace revealed that King Charles has “commenced a schedule of regular treatments” and, following doctors’ advice, will not be making public appearances until further notice. However, he will continue with other official duties at the Palace.
“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 said.
