Buckingham Palace announced yesterday that 75-year-old King Charles has cancer.

They didn’t specify what type, but the prognosis is reportedly good and it was caught “very early”. It was discovered during his latest procedure for a benign enlarged prostate.

“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.”

In case you’re wondering, if Charles decides to step down due to illness, William is next in line. He’s followed in the line of succession by his three kids: George, Charlotte, and Louis. Harry is fifth in line. If it matters, Prince George is 10. His royal siblings are eight and five.
