(LibertySons.org) – Headlines recently broke that British King Charles received the devastating news he has cancer. He personally told both Prince William and Harry, Duke of Sussex, about his condition. The younger royal has had a rocky relationship with his father in recent years, but he immediately made plans to visit when he learned about the update.
Details of King Charles’ condition have remained under wraps, according to BBC News, but Buckingham Palace confirmed that doctors found evidence of the illness while treating a benign condition that had enlarged his prostate.
The 75-year-old royal is still conducting private meetings, including his weekly talks with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and he continues to fulfill his duties as head of state while receiving outpatient treatment. He’ll be pausing all public events until he recovers.
PEOPLE reports that Prince Harry left his royal ties behind him when he stepped down as a working member of the family in 2021. The decision had been a long time coming, and the couple detailed much of their reasoning that year in a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey. They alleged that the Royal Family had expressed concerns over their baby’s potential skin color when they were expecting their first child. Then, according to Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, the family attempted to silence her over the matter, instructing her not to speak to the press about it and lying about her accounts. The estranged royal allegedly felt targeted and unprotected because she was of mixed race.
The Associated Press states that the British monarchy has been traditionally quiet about most personal matters, typically keeping silent about members’ health issues. King Charles noted that he decided to share so much about his current diagnosis because cancer is an important issue that affects many people. He added that he hoped to improve public awareness and push people to better their understanding of the potentially deadly condition.
