British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak offered reassurance, stating that King Charles cancer had been detected at an early stage.
Sunak,43, discussed the King's cancer diagnosis during his appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live this Tuesday.
“Obviously, like everyone else, shocked and sad, and just all our thoughts are with him and his family. Thankfully, this has been caught early,” Sunak said the British monarch “gets the treatment that he needs and makes a full recovery.”
“That’s what we’re all hoping and praying for, and I’m of course in regular contact with him and will continue to communicate with him as normal,” he continued.
Sunak shared, “He’ll be in our thoughts and our prayers, many families around the country listening to this will have been touched by the same thing and they know what it means to everyone. So we’ll just be willing him on and hopefully we can get through this as quickly as possible."
The politician was subsequently questioned about whether he had conversed with Charles and if their in-person meetings would persist, to which he responded, "We don't try to get into the details but I'm in regular contact with him as I always am and that will absolutely continue."
