Last month is was announced that King Charles III would be receiving treatment for an enlarged prostate, however it seems that during this hospital visit a 'separate issue' was discovered and later confirmed to be a 'form of cancer'.
This news comes after Kensington Palace disclosed that Kate Middleton, 42,- whom shares Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five, with husband Prince William, 41,- had undergone abdominal surgery.
A statement released by the Palace announced King Charles III diagnosis, reading: "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."
It is currently unknown the type of cancer the King has been diagnosed with, however Buckingham Palace have confirmed it is not prostate cancer.
