King Charles Returning To Public-Facing Duties Amid Cancer Diagnosis

King Charles is resuming his public-facing duties following his recent cancer diagnosis. On April 26, Buckingham Palace shared an encouraging update, revealing in a statement obtained by Access Hollywood that the monarch will be returning to public life on April 30. “The King and Queen will make a joint visit to a cancer treatment centre next Tuesday, where they will meet medical specialists and patients. This visit will be the first in a number of external engagements His Majesty will undertake in the weeks ahead,” the palace said. In the statement, they also outlined several other engagements planned for the King, including hosting a state visit at Buckingham Palace for the Emperor and Empress of Japan in late June. Earlier this year, it was revealed that the 75-year-old monarch had been diagnosed with cancer. After beginning treatment, the King postponed his public duties but continued to work behind the scenes and held small audiences in Buckingham Palace.
