The Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, said: “I am saddened to learn that King Charles is now facing a time of treatment for cancer. On behalf of the entire Catholic Community in England and Wales, I offer His Majesty our warmest wishes and assurance of steadfast prayers for his full and speedy recovery. God bless the King.”

The Dean of Westminster Abbey, Dr David Hoyle, said: “We join with people across the nation, the Commonwealth and wider world in holding His Majesty The King and the Royal Family in our thoughts and prayers. We remember all those living with a similar diagnosis or waiting anxiously on tests. The Abbey community remembers The King and the Royal Family in its worship each day. Now we will also be praying that, in Christ, he may find healing and hope.”

Christopher Luxon, New Zealand’s Prime Minister, stated: “Kia Kaha King Charles. On behalf of all Kiwis, I wish His Majesty all the very best for a speedy recovery.”
