  • This is the message behind the photo
  • Here is King Charles' health update

King Charles III (75) is facing a battle with cancer, as announced by Buckingham Palace in a statement on February 5th.

A photo of the king, depicting him confidently attired in a suit beside an open window within the palace, circulated on social media alongside a statement disclosing his cancer diagnosis. Nevertheless, a royal expert alleges that there is a concealed message within the latest picture of Charles.

Latest royal news:

Former 'BBC' correspondent Jennie Bond comments on the picture to 'Sky News': "This was carefully choreographed probably yesterday, deliberate attempt by the King and the Palace to show that he is ok, that we mustn't worry too much."

The news about the king's health comes just a week after he was discharged from hospital where he had undergone treatment for an enlarged prostate.
