British King Charles III. He will return to the public following the positive results of his cancer treatment. Treatment is continuing, but her doctors are “sufficiently satisfied with the progress that the monarch can now resume many public duties,” Buckingham Palace said on Friday. Accordingly, the 75-year-old monarch plans to visit the cancer hospital next Tuesday with his wife Queen Camilla, 76, to meet the doctors and patients there. The Japanese imperial couple will visit at the end of June and will be welcomed by Charles and Camilla at Buckingham Palace.

Progress in treatment so far “very encouraging”

Charles is “very encouraged to return to some public duties and is very grateful for the continued care and expertise of his medical team,” a palace spokesman said. It's not clear how long treatment should be continued, but progress so far is “very encouraging” and doctors are positive.

The announcement will come as a relief to many Britons and a sigh of relief for the Royal Family, which has recently been hit with terrible news. But the king will never fully return to normal. It is not yet clear whether Charles will take part in key events such as his Trooping the Color birthday parade or the commemoration of the Allied landings in Normandy 80 years ago. A palace spokesman said there would be no full summer program, adding that any public appearance would be announced at short notice and subject to medical advice.

Kate has completely withdrawn from the public eye

Charles' cancer was made public in early February. It was discovered during routine prostate surgery. It is not known what type of cancer it is. But it may not be prostate cancer. The king later withdrew from the public eye, but still held behind-the-scenes duties such as weekly audiences with the prime minister. He has been receiving outpatient treatment since then.

Her niece, Princess Kate, 42, went public with her cancer diagnosis in late March. He has now started preventive chemotherapy, he said in a very personal video message. She was diagnosed after surgery for what was initially not suspected to be cancer. However, this is a major operation in the abdominal cavity, about which nothing else is known. Unlike the king, she is completely out of a royal position.
