King Charles III, who ascended to the throne in 2022 after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, underwent a medical examination after developing suspicious symptoms. Doctors announced that the cancer was detected at an early stage, but its exact location and prognosis are still subject to further discussion.

In light of recent developments, the House has announced that Charles III's condition is not critical, but that he needs treatment for an enlarged prostate, and not for prostate cancer as originally stated. The king is currently undergoing inpatient treatment, but will continue to perform his duties as head of state. For the duration of his treatment, Charles III will retire from public life.

The statement said that the King remains positive about his treatment and hopes to return to full activity as soon as possible. In addition, he decided to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and promote public understanding of cancer and its effects.

Although Charles will suspend his public events, other senior members of the royal family will support him and help cover for him during his treatment. There are currently no details on the stage of the cancer or prognosis, but the whole world is monitoring his condition and sending best wishes to Charles on his road to recovery.

How did Charles III change the British monarchy and help Ukraine win?

Charles III does not hide his interest in the war in Ukraine. He not only expresses support, but sometimes takes actions that would seem unexpected for a monarch.

Normally, the king refrains from interfering in specific political matters and should act as an arbiter. But in the case of Russia's aggression, Charles showed that he would not be passive and would stand up for Ukraine.

His support is evidenced not only by his visits to Ukrainian communities and churches in Britain, but also by his visits to Ukrainian military training centres.

Such decisive behaviour demonstrates Charles's deep interest in Ukraine, which puts him in a line with rare precedents among British monarchs.

For example, during his visit to France, King Charles III expressed strong support for Ukraine in its fight against Russia. In his speech to the French Senate, he recalled the importance of uniting Europe, comparing the current situation to the events of the Second World War.

Charles III noted the courage and determination of the Ukrainian people in opposing the aggressor and expressed confidence in the victory of the Ukrainian people. He stressed that the UK and France remain loyal partners and are ready to support Ukraine on its path to freedom and sovereignty.

Charles III's speech in the Senate was another step in strengthening international support for Ukraine in its efforts to preserve peace and democracy.
