Queen Camilla is set to launch her first podcast for charity, The Queen’s Reading Room. The organization, which stems from her book club, aims to promote reading and literature while also donating books to various organizations and institutions.
During a recent appearance at a Salisbury Cathedral concert, Camilla spoke out about King Charles III’s cancer diagnosis for the first time. She shared that her husband is doing “extremely well under the circumstances” and has been “very touched by all of the letters and messages the public has been sending,” calling them “very cheering.” This was Camilla’s first public engagement since news of Charles’ cancer diagnosis.
On Monday, Buckingham Palace announced that Charles has been diagnosed with cancer, though they did not specify what type. Last week, the palace announced that the monarch was seeking treatment for an enlarged prostate at The London Clinic. Camilla reportedly told people at the private hospital that the king was doing well following his procedure. In a statement on Monday, Buckingham Palace thanked Charles’ doctors for their work.
The palace added that “His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”
