Following King Charles’ diagnosis, Biden states that overcoming cancer requires hope.

Regarding King Charles’s cancer diagnosis, US President Joe Biden says he is concerned and hopes to speak with him soon.

In Las Vegas on Monday, he disclosed to reporters that he had “just heard his diagnosis”.

He said, “I’m worried about him,” at a union function. “But I’ll be talking to him God willing.”

The King was receiving cancer treatment, as Buckingham Palace had previously declared.

The nature of the cancer is unknown, but a statement from the Palace stated that the King started “regular treatments” on Monday.

His condition “remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible”, said the statement.

Later on Monday, Mr. Biden posted on X, saying, “It takes hope and unwavering courage to navigate a cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.” Along with the people of the United Kingdom, Jill and I are wishing for His Majesty’s quick and complete recovery.”

2018 also saw the deaths of Mr. Biden’s longtime friend, Republican Senator John McCain, from cancer, and his 46-year-old son, Beau, from brain cancer.

The 75-year-old King will resume his outpatient therapy and postpone his public appearances, but he will carry out his constitutional duties as head of state, which include signing documents and holding private meetings.

He received “incredibly sad news” about his diagnosis, according to the US State Department.

At a routine press briefing, spokesperson Vedant Patel said, “Our thoughts are with the King… and his family.”

The King also received well wishes from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said that the people of Canada were thinking of him. “We’re sending him our very best wishes – and hoping for a fast and full recovery,” he continued.

According to former President Donald Trump, King was a “wonderful man who I got to know well during my presidency”.

“We hope for a swift and complete recuperation for him,” he posted on his social media platform, Truth Social.

According to sources who spoke to the BBC, Prince Harry, who resides in California with his wife Meghan Markle, will visit his father in the UK.

Following their retirement as senior royals in 2020, the duke and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, relocated to the United States.
