King Charles III, 75, has been diagnosed with cancer, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

CNN reported that the news comes after he spent three nights at the London Clinic, a private hospital near Regent’s Park, for a prostate procedure.

“During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted,” the statement said. “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.”

The statement did not specify what type of cancer was discovered or what stage the cancer was. CNN reported that sources indicated that the cancer was not prostate cancer.

“Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual,” the statement continued. “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 that Charles decided to share his diagnosis “to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”

Charles ascended to the throne in September 2022 after his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away.

“In marking the first anniversary of Her late Majesty’s death and my Accession, we recall with great affection her long life, devoted service, and all she meant to so many of us,” Charles said last year. “I am deeply grateful, too, for the love and support that has been shown to my wife and myself during this year as we do our utmost to be of service to you all.”
