Initiating “Regular Treatments,” Monarch Postpones Public Duties, Remains Optimistic

The 75-year-old King, undergoing treatment, eagerly anticipates a swift return to full public duty, Buckingham Palace affirms. Specifics on cancer stage and prognosis withheld.

Personally informing his sons, the Prince of Wales stays in regular contact; Prince Harry plans a visit from the United States. Treatment as an outpatient began upon the King’s return to London.

While pausing public events, the King maintains constitutional duties, engaging in paperwork and private meetings. Weekly audiences with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak continue in person, unless advised otherwise by doctors.

When the head of state can’t perform official duties, a backup plan kicks in. “Counsellors of state” can be appointed to take over for the monarch in that situation.

Currently, the list of potential stand-ins for the monarch consists of Queen Camilla, Prince William, the Princess Royal, and Prince Edward. Prince Harry and the Duke of York are no longer considered since they are no longer actively involved in royal duties.

Prince William temporarily stepped back from public engagements to support his wife, Catherine, the Princess of Wales, during her recovery from abdominal surgery last month.
