King Charles has returned to London for what is believed to be further cancer treatment.

The 75-year-old monarch was diagnosed with an undisclosed form of the disease after a “separate issue of concern” was detected when he underwent a prostate enlargement procedure last month and in photos obtained by the Daily Mail, was seen returning to the capital on Tuesday (13.02.24) with Queen Camilla, just two days after he was spotted in Sandringham, in what was his first public appearance since beginning treatment.

Charles landed in the royal helicopter at Clarendon House on Tuesday afternoon and he and his wife were taken to Clarence House after spending a week resting in Norfolk.

It is thought the royal couple will remain at the Westminster residence for at least the next few days.

The news comes just days after Charles – who ascended the throne following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth, in September 2022 – expressed his “sincere thanks” to the public for all their support since announcing his diagnosis, stating that he wanted . “shine a light” on the work of cancer caregivers around the world.

In a statement released by Buckingham Palace, he said: “I would like to express my sincerest thanks for the many messages of support and good wishes I have received over the last few days.

“As anyone who has been affected by cancer will know, these kind thoughts are the greatest comfort and encouragement.

“It's equally encouraging to hear how sharing my own diagnosis has helped to promote public understanding and shine a light on the work of all the organizations that support cancer patients and their families across the UK and around the world. My Lifelong admiration for their tireless care and dedication is even greater as a result of my own personal experience.”
