News swept the world yesterday — British King diagnosed with cancer. This occurred during the monarch's routine surgery last month. Charles III has informed his close ones and has already started treatment, with his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, by his side.
The 76-year-old Queen Consort aims to be a true support for the late Elizabeth II's eldest son. A close friend of the royal couple believes Camilla can help her husband like no one else. "Camilla is steadfast. Of course, the sad news of her husband's cancer diagnosis was a huge blow for Her Majesty. But she took it bravely and accepted it. The King's wife has always been calm about many things," a source said.
King Charles III's spouse was with him last night when he arrived in London to begin outpatient treatment. "Her approach to this devastating news will be pragmatic, insisting on being with her husband, supporting him at every step of the way," a royal family friend assured. Meanwhile, the Queen Consort plans to fulfill all her duties in full.
Close friends of th couple consider them an excellent team. Their relationship is strengthened by sincere feelings and strong attachment. "Friendship, love, and respect are what unite them. They are quite different people, but at the core are two individuals who genuinely love and respect each other and laugh a lot together. It's truly endearing," a longtime acquaintance of the couple said.
Charles III and his spouse hope to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary next year. An event many once thought impossible. However, British society has embraced the monarch's choice.
Parker Bowles deeply cares for her husband. She says the Prince is an excellent storyteller. The son of Elizabeth II loved reading Harry Potter stories to children, doing different voices. Camilla also appreciates his sense of humor. "At royal engagements, you can often see the couple literally crying with laughter over a private joke—a remarkable feat after so many years of marriage. Laughter is what they need now more than ever as they face the monarch's diagnosis. And, as with everything in life, they will approach this together," a friend of the couple quoted by Daily Mail.
