Britain's King Charles, who ascended to the throne in 2022 after Queen Elizabeth's passing, has been diagnosed with cancer, according to Buckingham Palace.

The 75-year-old monarch will temporarily step back from public engagements as he undergoes treatment, although he remains optimistic about his recovery.

Charles had recently spent time in the hospital for a procedure related to an enlarged prostate, where the cancer was detected as a separate concern.

The specific type of cancer was not disclosed by the palace, though it was confirmed not to be prostate cancer.

Despite his health challenges, Charles will continue to manage state affairs and official duties during his treatment regimen.

Prince Harry, his younger son, is set to visit him in the UK after being informed of the diagnosis.

Harry, who resides in California with his wife Meghan and their children, had previously withdrawn from royal responsibilities.

This news follows recent hospital visits by Charles and his daughter-in-law Kate, who underwent planned medical procedures.

Kate, the wife of Prince William and future Queen Consort, had spent two weeks in hospital for abdominal surgery.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak extended his well wishes to King Charles, expressing confidence in his swift recovery and noting the nation's support for him during this time.
