Queen Camilla Takes a Break from Royal Duties After King Charles’ Cancer Diagnosis

Queen Camilla to take a break from royal duties

Amidst the challenges faced by the royal family in recent weeks, Queen Camilla has decided to take a much-needed break from her royal duties. According to reports, she will be stepping away from her responsibilities for a week, giving herself some time off from her busy schedule.

During her absence, other senior members of the royal family will take over her duties. Queen Camilla is expected to return to work on March 11, when she will lead the Royal Family for the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.

This temporary hiatus comes as no surprise, considering the health issues faced by King Charles. The King was diagnosed with an unspecified form of cancer last month, after undergoing treatment for an enlarged prostate. Currently, he is undergoing further treatment and recovery.

Complicating matters even more was the hospitalization and recovery period of Kate Middleton, which limited the assistance Prince William could provide. To fill the void, Queen Camilla has taken on additional royal duties, including representing the royal family at the memorial service for the late King Constantine of Greece.

This break from engagements will undoubtedly provide a much-needed respite for Queen Camilla. It has been reported that she plans to spend this time off with King Charles and other family members, enjoying their company and taking a break from their busy schedules.

King Charles undergoing treatment

As for King Charles, he has been dividing his time between London and the royal estate of Sandringham in Norfolk, England. While the type and stage of his cancer have not been revealed, the general message from the royals is that he is responding well to treatment and maintaining a positive outlook.

During a meeting with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, King Charles expressed gratitude for the overwhelming support he has received from the public. The outpouring of messages has even moved him to tears.

Meanwhile, Kate Middleton, who underwent a planned abdominal procedure, has been recovering at home since her hospitalization. She is not expected to resume her royal duties until after Easter. Although there have been concerns about her health due to the lack of updates from the Palace, Kensington Palace recently reassured the public that there is no cause for alarm.

“We were very clear from the outset that the Princess of Wales was out until after Easter, and Kensington Palace would only provide updates when something significant occurs,” stated Kensington Palace.

We extend our best wishes to King Charles and Queen Camilla for a pleasant time together during their break.
