King Charles attended church at Sandringham for his first public appearance since Buckingham Palace disclosed his cancer diagnosis.
Walking outside St. Mary Magdalene Church alongside his spouse, Queen Camilla, the King waved to the public.
It follows the 75-year-old King’s Saturday thank-you for everyone’s “support and good sentiments” following the news.
He said that “such generous sentiments” were “the greatest relief and encouragement” for all those impacted by cancer.
On Sunday, when the King entered Sandringham church and had a brief conversation with Rev Canon Dr. Paul Williams, about one hundred well-wishers gathered around him.The private estate’s gates were surrounded by large crowds, but people were not permitted to enter the grounds because they are off-limits to the general population until Easter.
Tuesday, King Charles and Queen traveled from London’s Clarence House to their home in Norfolk. Earlier that day, the youngest of his siblings, the Duke of Sussex, had flown in for a short visit from the United States.The King’s tumour was discovered in January while he was receiving treatment for a prostate infection in London.
The cancer’s type has not been made public, however the Palace has clarified that it is not prostate cancer.
While undergoing treatment, King Charles has resigned from all public appearances; instead, senior royals, such as Queen Camilla and the Prince of Wales, have assumed his responsibilities at certain engagements.
The King expressed his gratitude in the following message: “It is equally encouraging to learn that disclosing my own condition has aided in raising public awareness of the work being done by all the organizations that serve those with cancer and their families in the UK and throughout the world.”My everlasting admiration for their untiring concern and commitment is even more profound as an outcome of my own intimate experience.”
