King Charles III has been diagnosed with cancer and has begun treatment.

Here’s what we know:

The King had a successful procedure for his enlarged prostate at the London Clinic last month and was said to be “doing well” after being discharged on 29 January.

Buckingham Palace announced the King had cancer on 5 February, saying it was discovered after his surgery for a benign enlarged prostate.

The 75-year-old King has already begun treatment and will step back from public duties for the time being. He will still undertake matters of the state and official paperwork “as usual.”

The King, who was last seen with Queen Camilla attending church at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk, has returned to London for his outpatient treatment.

The type of cancer has not been revealed, but it is not prostate cancer. It is thought to have been caught in its early stages.

His Majesty “remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible,” according to Buckingham Palace.

King Charles personally called his two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, to tell them the news. Harry, who resides in California, is preparing to visit his father in London in the coming days. The Duchess of Sussex will remain behind in Los Angeles with their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
