King Charles III makes first public appearance since cancer announcement last week

King Charles III was seen over the weekend for the first time since Buckingham Palace announced last week that he was being treated for cancer. Charles, 75, was seen strolling into a church on the royal Sandringham estate where he has his residence.

He waved and smiled at well-wishers who had granted nearby to capture a glimpse of the monarch as news cameras flashed. He walked alongside his wife, Queen Camilla before heading into the 11 a.m. service at St. Mary Magdalene Church.


Later, both the king and queen smiled and waved for the cameras as they headed back to their home at Sandringham House.

Earlier, a message was released by the Buckingham Palace, wherein the King thanked the public for their support ever since the news of him being diagnosed with cancer has surfaced on the internet.

He mentioned that it was “equally heartening to hear how sharing my own diagnosis has helped promote public understanding and shine a light on the work of all those organisations which support cancer patients and their families across  the U.K and wider world.”
