Nobility: King Charles, who suffers from cancer, smiles at his wishes for recovery

King Charles III received around 7,000 messages wishing him well. achieved since the announcement of his cancer. Buckingham Palace published several photos that night in which the 75-year-old reads some handwritten messages - and smiles. "At least you don't have to wear a cone," says a dog wearing a neck brace on a card.

Protective collars for animals are sometimes referred to as “cones of shame” in England, the British news agency PA explained. Alternatively, they are also called "Elizabethan collars", after the large white ruffs of the Elizabethan era in the 16th and 17th centuries.

A child's wish for recovery: "Never give up"

Some card writers would share their own experiences with cancer, the statement continued. "Chin up, chest out, stay positive and don't let yourself get down," advises one adult writer. A child wrote: "Never give up. Be brave. Don't push your limits. Get well soon."

The palace announced around two and a half weeks ago that Charles had been diagnosed with cancer during hospital treatment for a benign enlarged prostate. It is not known what type of cancer it is. They just said it wasn't prostate cancer. The monarch will not attend any public appointments, but will continue the business of state.

The king regularly receives documents in his famous red box. He was also given his well wishes in this way, as can be seen in the photos. The palace had also released a short video of Charles meeting with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak for his weekly audience. Charles said he had received so many wonderful messages and cards. That “moved him to tears.”
