- The monarch returned to Sandringham after 24 hours in the capital
King Charles has left Clarence House and returns to Sandringham after receiving further cancer treatment in London.
The monarch was seen waving as he returned to the estate this morning after 24 hours in the capital.
The 75-year-old landed at Clarendon House in the royal helicopter yesterday after spending a week in Norfolk resting following the shock announcement. He was pictured with his wife, Queen Camilla, at his side as the royal couple were led to nearby Clarence House.
On Saturday, Charles broke his silence for the first time when he sent his sincere thanks for the messages of support and said he was “heartened” to know his experience is inspiring others across the country to get checked.
Charles announced last week that he would postpone all public duties while he undergoes treatment for an unspecified cancer, discovered by doctors while receiving treatment for his benign enlarged prostate.
King Charles was photographed arriving at Clarence House yesterday; Since then he has been seen leaving to return to the Sandringham Estate.
The 75-year-old monarch was pictured arriving at Clarence House in London with Queen Camilla by his side on Tuesday after spending a week in Norfolk.
Camilla has been keeping her royal engagement diary and last week said her husband was doing “extremely well given the circumstances”.
He said the King, who underwent his first cancer treatment last week, had been “very touched” by all the messages of support he has received from the public.
Charles was pictured walking to church in Sandringham with Camilla on Sunday, the first time he was seen in public since beginning his regular treatments.
The King appeared to be in high spirits as he attended a service at St Mary Magdalene Church.
He smiled and waved to a crowd of more than 100 supporters as he visited Sandringham Estate Chapel alongside Camilla, 76, before being greeted by the Reverend Canon Paul Williams.
Wearing his trademark long brown coat and carrying an umbrella as a walking stick, the King walked at his usual brisk pace for the 11am service at the Norfolk estate.
The crowd, who gathered to show their support for the couple following Charles’ diagnosis, who watched from behind closed doors, said he “seemed to be doing very well.”
Charles looked in high spirits on Sunday morning as he attended a church service at the Sandringham estate, almost a week after his shocking cancer diagnosis.
The King has been spending time at Sandringham since publicly announcing that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
After the service, the King and Queen once again greeted the crowd gathered at the estate.
Buckingham Palace confirmed last week that Charles, who acceded to the throne just 17 months ago, does not have prostate cancer, saying only that he has a “form of cancer.”
He was diagnosed after “another cause for concern was noted” and was investigated while receiving treatment for his benign enlarged prostate.
Friends revealed last week that “workaholic” Charles will likely spend his time enjoying two of his favorite hobbies – walking and water painting – while trying to take it easy.
All public engagements have been cancelled, but people close to the monarch joked that he will continue working on his “red boxes” of paperwork “before eating his hard-boiled egg in the morning.”
A friend told the Mail: “Boredom will be one of the hardest things for him.”
Another said the King will likely spend some of his time listening to his beloved records by the late Canadian singer Leonard Cohen, specifically the poetic song Take This Waltz, which he described as “very moving.”
