Carlos III resumes his official agenda in the midst of cancer treatment: “I am excited”

Two weeks after announcing that he suffers from cancer and starting treatment against the disease, the king Charles III has reappeared at Buckingham Palace to receive the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak. The monarch, who has already warned of an indefinite sick leave, thus resumes his official agenda and offers an image of optimism and vitality: “I'm excited”has said.

The father of William of Englandwho has been in charge of replacing his father these days along with the queen camillahas confessed that the “wonderful” messages and cards he has received in recent weeks “they made me cry most of the time”. Sunak, for his part, has offered him his full support and has assured him that “the whole nation” is on his side.

The reappearance of Charles III comes a few hours after his heir broke royal protocols of political neutrality to request a ceasefire in Gaza. He did so in a statement he shared on social media: “I am deeply concerned about the terrible human cost of the conflict in the Middle East (…) Too many people have died.” The son of the late Lady Di requested more humanitarian aid and the release of hostages held by the Palestinians.

British experts point out that behind this statement, which breaks Buckingham's culture of silence and impartiality, there is a perfectly orchestrated movement that marks another step on his path to the throne. The reaction of his father, who does not even want to hear about abdication, has been blunt: abandon her medical leave and resume her duties. The message is clear: 'I am still the king.'

And the public presence of Carlos III has been significantly reduced since he announced on February 5 that he suffers from cancer. He was diagnosed after undergoing surgery for an enlarged prostate and began treatment for the disease that same Monday. He receives it once a week at the London Clinic and then retires to rest in his country retreat in Sandringham. Here he continues with his office work, as long as his health allows it.
