King Charles waves as he arrives for Easter Sunday church service in Windsor

The Archbishop of Canterbury acknowledged the cancer struggles of both King Charles and the Princess of Wales during his Easter Sunday sermon.

“We’ve watched and sympathised with and felt alongside the dignity of the King and the Princess of Wales as they have talked of their cancer,” he told the congregation at Canterbury Cathedral.

A Palace source has described the monarch’s Easter appearance as a “significant step” in his return to public duties.

“The King has responded to treatment very encouragingly over the past weeks and his doctors were thus able to adjust their guidance,” the source told the Telegraph.

The service was Charles’s most notable public appearance since he was diagnosed with cancer in February.

Afterwards, the 75-year-old surprised onlookers by greeting gathered members of the public, who later said he “looked good” and was in “high spirits”.

The Prince and Princess of Wales did not attend, but the King was joined by the Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, the Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York.

King Charles’ future ‘looks very positive’ as he sees ‘encouraging’ results from cancer treatment

King Charles is said to be responding well to his cancer treatment, with his road to recovery looking “very positive”, as he appeared “looking well” on Easter Sunday.

The 75-year-old monarch was making his first major public appearance having been diagnosed with an unspecific form of cancer in January.

His attendance at the Easter matins service in Windsor, followed by greeting members of the public, was reportedly a result of a change in doctors’ guidance due to him responding “very encouragingly” to treatment.

A Palace source stressed that the King’s treatment remained ongoing and that caution remained the “watchword”, but it was hoped he could make further appearances over the summer.

“Nothing will be confirmed until nearer the time, plans remain in flux and are subject to medical guidance, but there is great hope and optimism from both doctors and the patient,” the source told The Daily Telegraph.

Kate’s uncle Gary Goldsmith praises handling of cancer diagnosis

Gary Goldsmith, Kate’s maternal uncle, has praised the Princess of Wales for her adept handling of her cancer diagnosis announcement in an interview with the Spanish show ¡De Viernes!.

“I have been in touch with my sister Carole [Middleton] to make sure my niece is okay. I thought Kate handled it incredibly well, especially in such a difficult and tricky situation.

“I don’t know anybody else who’s had to deal with something like that, deal with their children and then have to offer explanations to the national and international media in such a public scenario.”

He continued: “It’s hard to imagine that they haven’t been affected by so many comments and conspiracy theories. I have sent messages to Kate so she knows what I feel and the love I have for her.”

“In each of our lives, there are moments which change us forever,” he said.“We’ve watched and sympathised with and felt alongside the dignity of the King and the Princess of Wales, as they have talked of their cancer, and in doing so by their lack of selfishness, by their grace and their faith, boosted so many others,” he said.

He delivered his message at Canterbury Cathedral in the English county of Kent.

King touched by public support

Perhaps it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that King Charles walked over to greet members of the public following the Easter matins service on Sunday.

We know that the monarch appreciates the support he has received from the public since his cancer diagnosis – and so the first opportunity to speak to members was perhaps too good to pass.

Not only did he shake the hands of around 60 people waiting at Windsor Castle on Sunday, he also spent three minutes engaging in short conversations, much to the delight of those in attendance.

Here’s a reminder of what the country’s support means to the King:

King has made a ‘significant step’ in his cancer treatment, Palace insider says

Following his Easter appearance, King Charles has made a “significant step” in his return to public duties, a source has said.

“Today was a significant step,” the Palace insider said.

“As can be seen, the King has responded to treatment very encouragingly over the past weeks and his doctors were thus able to adjust their guidance slightly on what His Majesty is now able to undertake, including attendance at the Easter Service and greeting well-wishers who had kindly turned out to show their support.”

The comment comes weeks after the Royals announced that the King was undergoing treatment for cancer.

The Palace had announced that the King will refrain from participating in any official public engagements during his treatment. He has instead been fulfilling all his official duties privately.

The road ahead is “looking very positive”, the source said.

King Charles shakes hands and chats with well-wishers as he leaves Windsor Castle

King Charles III greeted crowds as he departed Windsor Castle following an Easter Sunday church service. The monarch was seen waving as he stood beside the Queen outside St George’s Chapel earlier in the day, in his most significant public appearance since he was diagnosed with cancer. He then took time to shake hands and chat with well-wishers who had gathered outside the castle. The King’s appearance at the annual Easter service will be seen as an effort to reassure the public following the royal family’s double cancer scare. The Princess of Wales, who announced her own diagnosis just over a week ago, did not attend.
