For The First Time King Charles Reveals Side Effects of His Cancer Treatment Months after Diagnosis

Recently, King Charles III revealed that he lost one sense as a result of his cancer treatment. The information was disclosed at a significant public event intended to formally assign Prince William a function.

King Charles III disclosed that he was missing a sense on May 13, 2024. The revelation occurred during an interview at the Army Flying Museum in Middle Wallop, Hampshire, with British Army veteran Aaron Mapplebeck.

Aaron told the King about his treatment experience last year for testicular cancer. He stressed how his treatment had caused him to lose his sense of taste. During this conversation, King Charles developed sympathy for Aaron. He said he had encountered the same adverse effect.

Since his cancer diagnosis was made public, this was the first time the king had addressed the side effects of his treatment. The specifics of King Charles’s cancer diagnosis and course of treatment are still unknown. Beyond confirming the King’s health concern, Buckingham Palace did not offer any other details.

On February 5, 2024, King Charles’s health status was first made public. Using the official palace website, this was accomplished. It said a “separate issue of concern” was discovered during a normal hospital surgery for benign prostate enlargement. Results prompted more testing, which identified a type of cancer.

King Charles has been receiving regular medical care ever since. This caused him to take a break from his official activities. He did, nevertheless, carry out official documentation and state business as usual.

Princess Eugenie recently provided a brief update on the King’s condition, despite the palace’s overall lack of comment on the subject. She gave a speech at an Elephant Family charity event—a topic that the royal family is passionate about. In response to inquiries over her uncle’s health, Eugenie stated that King Charles was “doing well.”

King Charles went returned to his public duties three months after taking a break from them. His Majesty and Queen Camilla will commemorate his comeback to the public eye with a visit to a cancer treatment facility, the palace said on April 26.

As his first formal public appearance after the diagnosis, this visit held special significance. The royal couple interacted with patients and medical personnel while they were there. They also clarified the important task in cancer treatment and care.

The King’s improved health and preparedness to resume his royal duties were also highlighted in the official statement. “His Majesty is greatly encouraged to be resuming some public-facing duties and very grateful to his medical team for their continued care and expertise,” the statement concluded.

The most recent engagement of His Majesty took place on May 13, 2024. This marked Prince William’s official takeover of leadership of Prince Harry’s old regiment.

William was given the distinguished title of Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps by the King upon his arrival by helicopter. For thirty years, the King himself filled this function.

It puts William in command of the Army’s airborne wing now. Among them is the 662 Squadron, which his brother Prince Harry briefly commanded.

The occasion was rich in military history. A Guard of Honour and Lieutenant General Sir Nicholas Borton, Colonel Commandant of the Army Air Corps, were there to commemorate it.

At the ceremony, which took place in front of an Apache attack helicopter that Prince Harry had co-piloted while serving in Afghanistan, King Charles conveyed his sincere delight in the accomplishments of the regiment. He also emphasized how long he had been with them.

He said, “I do hope you’ll go from strength to strength with the Prince of Wales as your new Colonel-in-Chief. The great thing is he’s a very good pilot indeed. I can’t tell you how proud it has made me to have been involved with you all this time.”

King Charles and William met with servicemen and their families after the formal events, highlighting the royal family’s personal connection to the Army Air Corps.

Following King Charles’s departure, Prince William took on his first role as Chief of Staff. His agenda was packed with meetings with families and staff, operational aircraft checks, and briefings on the unit’s operations. William also made use of the chance to pilot an Apache chopper. This was similar to the assistance his brother used to give.

In addition, Prince William was given a number of unique presents while he was there. Among them were a tartan shawl for his wife Catherine Middleton and a scarf from the Army Air Corps.

Three wooden helicopters for their kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, were also given to him. This represented the carrying on of the family tradition in royal service.

Although William’s official transfer barely happened, Buckingham Palace had already announced his new position. An earlier story in May stated that King Charles III intended to give his eldest son the position of Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps.

“In August 2023, following His Majesty’s Accession, the King was pleased to announce military appointments including that the Prince of Wales would become Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps. The role was previously held by His Majesty the King, as Prince of Wales, for 31 years,” the statement from the Palace revealed.

When Prince William received word that the King had appointed him Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps during the Duke of Sussex’s visit to the United Kingdom, it caused a stir in the public domain.

The fact that William was taking on the post for the first time, although it was not entirely new as Harry had previously held it, added to the mystery.

The Duke of Sussex has a long history of service in the armed forces. In addition to having held the title earlier, he spent 10 years in the Armed Forces, including two tours of duty in Afghanistan with the British Army, before his operational duties were terminated in 2015. Harry and other royal family members have official relationships with many units of the Forces.”

According to the King and Queen of England’s official website, the royal family pays “regular visits” to soldiers, airmen, and sailors who serve both domestically and overseas. For a very long time, they have acknowledged and encouraged “the work of the Armed Services.”

Thinking back to William’s recent bestowal of his new title, the timing of the announcement had sparked conjecture. Given that it is well known that Harry and his father’s relationship has been strained recently, there has been a lot of speculation in the public.

“This is one of the most public rifts in the world,” regarding Prince Harry and King Charles III, royal analyst Richard Fitzwilliams stated, “If it was handled in private without so much press speculation, it would have a better chance of being resolved.”

Harry spent a few days in the United Kingdom, but he never met the King of England because of the great division between the father and son. The people has responded to this with fervor.

“In response to the many inquiries and continued speculation on whether or not The Duke will meet with his father while in the U.K. this week, it unfortunately will not be possible due to His Majesty’s full program,” stated a spokeswoman for Harry.

“The Duke of course is understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon,” the statement continued. A media outlet claimed that King Charles III’s calendar was packed when he resumed his public royal duties.

Following his cancer diagnosis and treatment, King Charles III has been working behind the scenes. Fiji’s Prime Minister, Sitiveni Rabuka, was welcomed to an audience at Buckingham Palace. The season’s first garden party, held at Buckingham Palace on May 8, further occupied the King’s time.

Harry was just as busy and booked as his father. He was in the UK for the Invictus Games’ anniversary, which began with a panel discussion. Harry also read in a ceremony held at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

When it was announced that Harry and King Charles III would not be seeing each other at this time, the public reacted angrily and shocked, with many expressing displeasure in the King. “That’s absolutely unforgivable, that a Dad can’t prioritize his son. King or not!!!” a social media user reprimanded.

In a similar vein, another person said, “Harry deserves better. Shame on #KingCharles. He treated #PrincessDiana terrible as well. #TheWholeWorldIsWatching.” “Shameful… but Prince Harry can sleep well at night. He has reached out numerous times,” commented another.

Another user highlighted the turbulent relationship between Princess Diana and King Charles III by writing, “Charles is who Diana said he was 🙃.” One other critic of King Charles III referred to him as “petty.”

Someone on Facebook said, “As a parent I can’t imagine not being able to pencil my child into my schedule.” “I can’t imagine anything more important than getting to spend some time with a child that you really don’t see very often,” remarked a third.

Another person who had strong feelings about the issue said, “Sadly, his father chooses his position over his family. His father has made it very clear where his love is. If he really wanted to see his son he would and could. This whole situation clearly shows that it is all about him and his ‘control over others.'”

Given the recent announcement that William, the youngest son, has been bestowed with a new title by his father, King Charles III seems to still be well-liked by his eldest son, even though their relationship may not be the best right now.

In addition, he is said to get along well with Princess Catherine, his daughter-in-law. The Princess, like William, had received a new title from the King, as we had previously reported on April 24, 2024.

The Princess of Wales will join the Order of the Companions of Honour as a Royal Companion, according to a statement made by King Charles III on April 23. For any royal, this was their first assignment.

With this esteemed appointment, she joins an exclusive group of individuals acknowledged for their noteworthy accomplishments in a variety of domains, such as public service, the sciences, and the arts.

George V. created the Order of the Companions of Honour in 1917. There can only be 65 members of this restricted organization at any one time. Other honorary members from beyond the Commonwealth are permitted, nevertheless.

Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Anna Wintour, Sir Elton John, and Sir David Attenborough are among its notable members.

When Catherine’s new role was announced, people took notice. It caused a rush of confused and worried online remarks. Online users’ opinions ranged from supportive to doubtful.

A user said, “Definitely a distraction as to what is really happening but okay,” which alluded to the dynamics of the royal family. Another questioned, drawing attention to the Princess’s conspicuous absence from public appearances, “But where is she?” Something like, “A Royal Companion never heard of that role,” someone said.

A second person said, “She still hasn’t been seen in public since Dec 25th, and no one seems concerned with this at all?” “I hope she’s getting better,” someone posted on Facebook. Another person, perplexed by the new title, asked, “Ermm, what kind of title is that?”

It’s evident that although the distinction is noteworthy, Catherine’s recent low profile is also brought to light. The public’s interest in her well-being and the circumstances surrounding her new royal responsibilities have been piqued by this.
